Sometimes My Brain Works

When I was working on my WIP, which is set in 1882, I wrote the following sentence off-the-cuff: "Like the majority of the British Empire, Cape Colony hadn't permitted slavery in nearly fifty years."

I circled the sentence during revisions so as to check my facts and make it all peachy. Turns out Cape Colony was, indeed, included among British territorial holdings that officially abolished slavery in 1834.

Good on me! *pats own back*
