* NeverLearnedToRead: Child, in the episode "Child," was illiterate. Sadly, this means [[spoiler:he went a long time not knowing what his name was (and going by "Child" because that's what everyone called him) until Hoss read the inscription in his Bible]].

*** Chronology their presence in the show is reasonably accurate historically. Twain's first appearance coincides with the time he was working as a newspaperman in Virginia City, Nevada. Michelson is shown as a young Jewish schoolboy from Germany in the same town, subject to antisemism, which he was in real life. [[ViewersAreMorons Michelson gets an extra coda showing what he did in real life.]]
