Deliberate mistake: When Wyatt comes out of the Orientalist and joins his brothers in the street to tell them he's acquired a quarter interest in a game, a herd of cattle is passing them in the street but there's no dust kicked up by the cattle, when in reality there would be a lot of dust on a dry desert street in Arizona.
Factual error: In the scene just before the fight at the O.K. Corral, Wyatt is talking to his brothers and Doc on the porch of the town marshal's office. There is an American flag flying behind him with 50 stars on it when in fact there were only 38 stars on the flag in 1881.
Trivia: Val Kilmer is widely believed to be the most historically accurate portrayal of Doc Holliday. He is the same height, same build, and uses phrases used by Doc Holliday (eg "I'm your huckleberry" and "You're a daisy if you do").
Question: Whatever happened to Morgan's wife and Kate? They are never mentioned by the narrator at the end of the movie.
