When Andy came up with an inspirational trip to the Battle of Gettysburg on 'The Office' (Thu., 9PMET on NBC), Dwight got on his high horse about the Battle of Schrute Farms being the northernmost battle during the Civil War. As always, he was full of bluster and conviction, which made it all the more sweeter when he found a curator who was familiar with it.
Oscar, the resident know-it-all, had been on a tear the whole day with Dwight about the veracity of his claims of a significant battle on his land. So he was a little stunned that the Battle of Schrute Farms existed. But both men were in for a huge surprise when a video showed what it really meant.
The Battle of Schrute Farms was code for a place of refuge for more delicate men who wanted to get away from the war. Understandably, Oscar was delighted by this news, while Dwight was horrified and disgusted. Do you think he'll accept this version of history, or decide it's another lie by the institution to sully the good Schrute name?
