Life for females in the 1800's was quite restrictive. While the men went to work and did almost whatever they wanted to (fishing, hunting, wearing pants, etc.), women had to do housework and couldn't do the things men could do.

Children were dressed like little adults and treated like adults in that they were expected to go to work early. Girls worked around the house with there mothers. Boys were working outside and helping pick crops. Girls also were expected to get married at the age of 15 or 16 years old. Boys had to decide what they were going to do when they get older.

That is the life of the children in the 1800s.
