So, I'm attempting to write my first period piece and I'm having more logistics issues than I thought I would. I know there's a few people on here who know more about history than I do, so I was hoping someone could help me out. It's set around the early 1900's, I think, in the south, doesn't really matter exactly where. 1) Would it be reasonable to think that someone could live in a country house built pretty close to a train's tracks? 2) Would it be believable around this time for a train to regularly (at least twice a week) come through a rural southern town? 3) Say a girl was raped by two men then killed at this time period. Would doctors in a small rural town have the technology to be able to know that she had been raped by two different men? 4) What curse words would a 60-70 year old rural southern man use? I'm assuming 'hell' or 'damn' or in extreme cases 'Goddamn' are a given, but I don't know about, say, the f-word or the s-word. Thanks for your help in advance!
