  • Trivia

    • The problem with this episode is the timing. The series is generally held to take place in the mid-1870's. Nitroglycerin was first synthesized in 1847. Alfred Nobel began experimenting to stabilize it in the 1860's. In 1866, three crates were shipped to California. After one crate exploded, killing 15 people, the shipping of liquid nitroglycerin was banned in California, and other places as well. Nobel finally stablized the nitroglycerin in the form of dynamite in 1867. (And dynamite has been seen frequently on this series since the first season.)
