  • Trivia

    • Charles says that the Civil War has only been over for 11 years when he expresses his concern to Mary over Miss Beadle's intent to teach on it. That would make this episode take place in 1876 (since the war ended in 1865). Laura Ingalls was born in 1867, two years after the end of the war. If this episode takes place in 1876, she should only be nine years old, which she is not--she is about 11 right now. Another problem is over a year ago, Walnut Grove was celebrating our country's centennial.
