Hey Eisnel! I've been working on the Wars of the Roses page lately since I am doing some research for university. I recently added the date for the Act of Accord as 1461, which you corrected to 1460. You seem to be quite right -- I just copied the date from the Wikipedia article about the Act of Accord: it says 1461 there... If you're really sure it was 1460, we should correct it there as well, shouldn't we? Anyone more infos? -- Nicapicella, 26/Apr/05
Heya Nicapicella. I changed it to 1460 on the Act of Accord article at the same time that I made the change to the Wars of the Roses article (I wonder if it needs to be changed anywhere else?). I did a Google search, and every date I found for the Act of Accord is in 1460; more specifically, October 1460. I couldn't find consensus regarding which day in October it occured; some sites said the 10th, some had it nearer the end of the month. The 1461 date set off alarm bells in my head when I realized that Richard died at the very end of 1460. However, I'm certainly not an expert in this area, and I haven't checked any offline resources, such as a printed encyclopedia. So I can't claim to be 100% sure about this. If, in your research, you find an authoritative exact date, that would be great! I might also put these comments on the Act of Accord talk page to see if anyone else can help figure this out. -Eisnel 22:34, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Well, here we are. I have not had time to do some further research, but I figuered it would really be best to put this info right here, where it belongs. I will try my best as soon as time allows! -- Nicapicella, 28/Apr/05
