In Episode 13, the Time Pilots meet an African-American soldier from the Union Army during the Civil War. He exhaustedly complains that he and the other soldiers are having a bit of trouble opening tin cans full of food because no practical can openers have been invented yet. His clues lead the Time Pilots to the 1860s, specifically 1862, fifty years after the first tin cans were made.

In Episode 56, Sir Vile tells Carmen Sandiego about a shoemakers' strike that is occurring in Lynn, Massachusetts, just before the Civil War. By eavesdropping on their conversation, the Time Pilots figure out that Sir Vile is in the 1860s, specifically 1860.

In Episode 59, the Time Pilots meet Matthew Brady, a famous photographer, who has photographed President Lincoln as well as the battlefield of Antietam. His clues about the Battle of Antietam lead the Time Pilots to the early 1860s, specifically 1862, when the Battle of Antietam was fought.

In Season 2, Episode 32, the Engine Crew sing a song about the Emancipation Proclamation and the 13th Amendment, directing the Time Pilots to the 1860s, specifically between the years 1863, when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued, and 1865, when the 13th Amendment was ratified.
