Historical Events Within the 19th Century

Here is some research about certain events around the era of when the extract I was giving was published “The Journey to the Centre of the Earth” written by Jules Verne in 1864.

-       Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States in 1860.

-       The Civil War between the North and South of America started in 1861 about the slavery being abolished by President Lincoln.

-       Jules Verne also was best known for his other famous novel “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1870) and “Around the World in 80 Days” (1873).

-       The French Revolution (1789- 1792) “The long 19TH Century.

-       The first French Empire under Napoléon  (1804-1814)

-       The first decades of the “Third Republic” (1871-1940)

This information is from some historical events that I think were the most important around the time of the novel between France and America.
