I'd say my favourite author of the late 1800's was most definitely Arthur Conan Doyle. If you don't know him, he wrote Sherlock Holmes.
Louisa May Alcott- Amazing person, incredibly intelligent, couragous, open minded and progressive in her thinking .Her writing still resonates today. I also love Emily Dickenson, her writing is haunting, beautiful and deep and she was a fascinating person.
ya me too agree with Indigital..
Conan Doyle for Sherlock Holmes
Alexandre Dumas, of The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo
I don't know how many times I've read Monte Cristo but it never gets old.
And I'll have to jump on the Conan Doyle bandwagon too. Not just for the Holmes books either (though most of them are great). I really enjoyed the Lost World (a sort of sci fi) and he wrote a lot of historical novels too.
My favorite historical author is Rick Atkinson. His Liberation Trilogy describing the invasion of North Africa in the first book and the invasion of Sicily and Italy in the second. I am eagerly awaiting the third and final book which must cover the invasion of Europe. They are amazing books! He also wrote The Long Gray Line describing the careers of the West Point graduating class of 1966. This critically acclaimed book is on several military reading lists.
Roberta Gellis without a doubt. Her books are entertaining and her historical research is top notch.
