Learn what life was like for women in the 1850s! Sewing, cleaning, cooking, and childcare comprise the main elements of the “Domestic Sphere” of nineteenth century women. Areas of responsibility change when explored from the perspective of a mother like Mrs. Jones, or an enslaved woman, like Mary, in the field.
