    technically, this is actually incorrect…
    voortrekkers were a group of people who migrated in the 1830’s.
    Whereas the people who fought in the ABW were called “boers” (i.e. farmers) - a collective term of various groupings, but predominantly of farming stock who were decedents of the voortrrekkers.

    On two of our planets a day is longer than a year:

    Mercury has a solar day (sunrise to next sunrise) that is longer than one rotation around the sun.
    Venus has a sidereal day (spinning once around its own axis relative to background stars) that is longer than one rotation around the sun.
