The producers say it was "set" in the 1860's. However, you can calculate further, by examining the evidence. (1) The first show (the pilot) was set in 1859, and the last show was in approximately 1870. (2) Little Joe's character was 17 when he first appeared in the show, which was the first show (the pilot). Little Joes mother died "on the ranch (most likely the Ponderosa ranch) when he was about 5 years old. But she never appeared in the show except in flashbacks, and Ben married Little Joes mother on the ranch, where she had Little Joe. Thus, though the show, including the pilot, was 1859 to <1871, the Ponderosa Ranch was there and occupied at least by Ben, the father, between at least 1847 to ~1870. www.bonanzaworld.net
Based on its location in and around Carson City & Virginia city and a railroad being availble to California from Virginia city to Sacramento this would mean the Virginia & truckee had been built putting it Some time After 1871 and Probobly before 1885 when we may have seen additional steam apparatus in and around the area.
I believe this a close guestimate with only a 14 year span and since the show ran many years, perhaps we could say 1874 - 1880.
Bonanza is set in post-Civil War era.
Post Civil War era.
eras are geologic time intervals; based on the sequence of rock strata and the different life forms. Mesozoic era: 225 to 65 million years ago
No. The Precambrian Era extended from 4.5 billion years ago to 542 million years ago. The Mesozoic Era lasted from 251 million years ago to 65 million years ago. The Paleozoic Era came in between the two.
we are in the common era. it started 2010 years ago
The Mesozoic Era lasted approximately 250 million years ago to about 67 million years ago .
The Paleozoic era was from 540 million years ago to about 245 million years ago. After that came the Mesozoic era, and that lasted from the end of the Paleozoic to 65 million years ago, when the earth entered the Cenozoic era.
The Paleozoic Era
It is called the Mesozoic Era.
300 million years ago Earth was in the Paleozoic Era.
100 Years,. Correction: Asking how long an era is, is the same as asking how long is a piece of string. An era can be any segment of time that can be distinguished. Such as, the 'Nazi era', 'George W. Bush era'. An era is NOT 100 years, that is a century.
In the latter years of the Classical Era and into the Romantic Era.
Paleozoic Era ran from about 542 million years ago to 251 millions years ago.
the mesozoic era started 225 million years ago .
The Precambrian Super-Eon is the informal name for the time on earth before the Cambrian Period. It lasted from 4,576 millions years ago until 542 million years ago, about 4.034 billion years.No geological era lasted as long. The longest era was the Paleoproterozic Era(2,500 - 1,600Ma) which lasted 900 million years.
The Precambrian Era.
the Mughal era was 331 years long
570 million years ago was in the Neoproterozoic Era. This lasted from 1,000 to 542 million years ago.
The premise: Ben Cartwright, owner of the sprawling Ponderosa Ranch near Lake Tahoe, post-Civil War era, and his three sons Adam, Hoss and Little Joe deal with life in 19th century and raise cattle, mill wood ect.
Starting with the Precambrian Era. 4600 million to 570million years ago. Paleozoic Era. 570 million to 245 million years ago. Mesozoic Era. 245 million to 66 million years ago. Cenozoic era: 66 million years to Today.
Not sure if it's set in a particular year, but it's definitely set in 1930s (depression era) America, when it was tough for ranch hands like George and Lennie to find work.
The Mesozoic era lasted 186 million years, from about 251 million years ago until about 65 million years ago.
