What was the worst decade to live in America?

  • Best Answer
    I'd say 1860 - 1870 would certainly be among the worst. Terrible war followed by a terrible insurrection inappropriately labeled "Reconstruction." But 1910 - 1920 was near the worst as well, with another terrible war and a terrible flu pandemic that claimed close to 700,000 lives in the U.S. and reduced the life expectancy at the time by 12 years. Incidentally this year marks the 100 year anniversary of both events.

    Note to those of you who proclaim that 2010 is the worst decade - you really are a special kind of stupid.
