Owsley says the cut marks on the jaw, face and forehead of the [unearthed] skull, along with those on the shinbone, are telltale signs of cannibalism. "The clear intent was to remove the facial tissue and the brain for consumption. These people were in dire circumstances. So any flesh that was available would have been used," says Owsley. "The person that was doing this was not experienced and did not know how to butcher an animal."

Widespread zombie problems could have lead to renewal of religious faith and belief of the supernatural which could point to the Second Great Awakening, I'm sure everyone would have had a firearm in those days as well.
Or if you mean "when people were the most prepared to defend themselves against a threat" on a national scale, perhaps the age of imperialism (around spanish american war)?

I cheated and used wikipedia to refresh my memory, you can take points off if I am right lol

Edit: I guess the second one might not fit all the hints in first post, but I am having trouble thinking of any particular era that would have obvious indicators since it seems like this is swept under the rug.

Final clue before I just tell you guys this was probably the singular. In American history when people were the most prepared to defend themselves against a threat

Cowboys vs Indians?

I dont know but you have me thinking of the wild west days  there was some form of law in the west but a person needed to be prepared to enforce it themself.

Probably lots of stories out on the trails that never got told.

Bingo. Why is it that everyone was armed... also think of "ghost towns"

What are the specifics around the curse? I remember we discussed how the plague of 1666 was really a curse for Astaroth to enter through (at least) the Astor bloodline, but what are circumstances behind the origins of this 'zombie curse' and who 'qualifies' to get cursed by it?
I thought curses can be broken too, is that still the case with something like this?

Is it not strange then that the 'wild west' is also the time when alcohol (man eating spirits) was (apparently) more wide spread and even preferred to water, which was (ironically) apparently less pure than alcohol? 
Does that have something to do with how this curse spread back then? Who was responsible for spreading alcohol but not water purification methods back then?

Consider the african origin of zombies...

During the 1830s, white mobs attacked African Americans in cities throughout the nation, including Philadelphia, Cincinnati, Buffalo, and Pittsburgh. This mob violence led Abraham Lincoln to lament “the worse than savage mobs” and “the increasing disregard for law which pervades the country” (Feldberg, 1980, p. 4).Feldberg, M. (1980). The turbulent era: Riot and disorder in Jacksonian America. New York, NY: Oxford University Press. The mob violence stemmed from a “deep-seated racial prejudice…in which whites saw blacks as ‘something less than human’” (Brown, 1975, p. 206)Brown, R. M. (1975). Strain of violence: Historical studies of American violence and vigilantism

For almost the entirety of History alcohol has been preferred to water as mass water purification was nearly impossible until relatively recently

If you do not open the gate for me to come in,
I shall smash the door and shatter the bolt,
I shall smash the doorpost and overturn the doors,
I shall raise up the dead and they shall eat the living:
And the dead shall outnumber the living!

A 'higher' god trying to enter a lower realm? What makes Hell such a contested plane?
