Try Living In 1800s America And We’ll Tell You If You Survived

If you were a regular civilian living back in the 1800s, almost anything could kill you. Based on what we’ve learned through documentaries and our history textbooks, life in 19th century America was one big game of just trying to make it to the end of the day. Even simply going into town to grab a meal at the local saloon or play a game of cards were activities that carried the risk of death in the 1800s.

We’ve put together a series of questions which will help us assess your ability to survive in the lawless, moralless cesspool of violence and greed that was America in the 19th century. Whether or not you would have lived until the ripe old age of 28, we will be able to tell based on your answers to this quiz.

To find out if you have what it takes to live in one of the roughest and tumultuous periods in history, take this quiz and find out if you would’ve made it through the 1800s.
