Corrected entry: The Union Soldiers use a Gatling gun to attack the bushwhackers near the beginning of the film. The Gatling gun was developed, but never used in combat during the Civil War, especially not in the less important Trans-Mississippi theater. Furthermore the Gatling gun shown has 10-12 barrels, the first one developed only had 6.

Correction: False. They were used at the siege of Vicksburg, etc.

Corrected entry: In the beginning Frank is shooting a lever-action rifle. It's supposed to be Civil War era. The gun is actually a Henry Repeating Golden Boy produced a few years ago.

Correction: The rifle Frank uses is a Henry model 1860 lever action rifle, which was very much Civil War-era.

Corrected entry: Jesse James's gang wasn't called the James Gang but the James and Younger Gang.

Correction: When Jesse James and Cole Younger are robbing the first bank, someone asks who they are, and Jesse answers "the James Gang." Cole objects and they decide to call it the James-Younger Gang. Also later in the movie they dispute calling it the James-Younger or Younger-James gang.

Continuity mistake: When Jesse and Frank are telling the doctor that his son was killed (right in the beginning of the movie) Jesse gained a lot of beard growth in five minutes. When they are outside talking to Zee, he has just a light beard, and then when they go inside he has a heavier one.
