Also there's yellow fever. Nothing says children's literature like an extremely fatal, highly contagious epidemic, right?
I totally had one of the American Girl dolls, too - Addy, the Civil War-era one, who, in my opinion, has the badassest of badass stories. Of course, back then, in the misty dawn of American Girl doll-owning, there weren't as many dolls to choose from. Samantha was a snob, I hated Molly's clothes and glasses, and I had this completely irrational hatred of blonde dolls, so Kirsten was out.
Cecile and Anne-Marie will probably have awesome clothes, if my extensive knowledge of 1850s New Orleans serves me correctly, and considering that everything I know about 1850s New Orleans I learned from Interview with the Vampire, I'm pretty sure I'm right.
