Question
What year was the tv show Bonanza, supposed to equate to, when the show was made,I was thinking around 1902,am i close?

Answer
Hi Ken,

No sorry - not 1902.  Bonanza was actually set around 1860 - when the great silver mines were starting in the west and very close to the start of the Civil War. There were a number of episodes relating to the Civil War and some set after the war and dealing with soldiers.

I hope this helps.

Cheers,

Jerri
