The 19th century was from 1801 until 1900 WWII happened in the 20th century. So I don't know what Stephen foster has anything to do with this

But “early” 19th Century implies from 1801 to about 1851. It is somewhat forgivable as well because in US history, the period before the Civil War is seen as intrinsically different from after the Civil War, so it is often used as “mid-19th Century”.
