The Equalizer

I'm not sure about the rules of using someone's pic. So... No pic tonight.

I find that when DH and I don't agree about the when or how of something that I can look it up on the internet. The latest thing was about the date of the completion of the transcontinental rail. He was watching some show about long ago - Hell something? I asked him when that was. He gave me an answer that I didn't agree with. 

I let it gel in my head and was positive it was a decade or so before what he said. DH is, of course, never wrong. In a different lifetime, I had seen the spike in a museum, but my muddled mind couldn't come up with the particulars.

Ta-Dah, enter the equalizer! I have cut and pasted the info. Why is it that I want to do the happy dance? I was closer to the right date than he was. Now, I won't rub it in, but I sure am going to show him... I can't be wrong ALL the time!

May 10, 1869 the last (Golden) spike was driven to complete the railway!
