The last message makes it sound like I'm trying to get others to do my research for me! I'm not expecting answers to my questions, just wondering how other writers go about trying to get answers to similar questions.

My suggestions that may help all over with your questions are finding books about that period in history, and setting and also, reading fiction from those same eras. That might help with the getting into the character's head kind of thing. If you have access to a university library, that would be a fantastic help, or access to teachers of literature and history, they sometimes have anecdotes from their studies that can help.

Full of advice for someone that doesn't write historical fiction, aren't I?;-) If I were though, those would probably be my first steps. I tend to read the heck out of stuff online when I have questions
