Deadeye Dick - S5-E9

Corrected entry: The circuit judge arrives on the stagecoach and complains that the railroad has no spur line to Medicine Bow. But the town has had a railroad connection and station all along: it's seen in nearly every episode, including the opening and closing scenes of this one.

Correction: The judge isn't complaining that Medicine Bow had no railroad going through, he just said he wished the railroad would put in spur lines. He made no mention of Medicine Bow and what we see is a main line. There's a big difference between the two, spur lines are short, and often cheap, but allow smaller towns without a railroad going through to connect to a main line. The Judge wished the small town he came from had a spur line connecting it to the main line (or spur lines directly to Medicine Bow, making it a hub).


The Barren Ground - S6-E12

Corrected entry: In court, the lawyer berates Sarah for never having voted - an odd criticism, since the series is set in the late 1800s. Women in the U.S. weren't granted voting rights until the 19th Amendment was passed in 1920.

Jean G

Correction: The 19th amendment didn't give women the right to vote per se, it stated no citizen can be denied the right to vote. Wyoming had already granted women the right to vote in 1869, when it was still a territory.
