It Can Happen

In the fifth grade I proudly reported that my great-grandmother traveled in a covered wagon. As I got older, I realized her birth in 1890 was about half a century late for the westward immigration implied. So for years I thought I had embarrassed myself by reporting an inaccuracy. While researching my genealogy I discovered that my great-grandmother had taken a noteworthy trip in a covered wagon circa 1895, albeit eastward to visit her grandmother.

So it turns out I was right. Yay for me!
