Factual error: When Hondo first meets the woman and kid, he tells them that he is riding dispatch for General Crook. The movie takes place 1869/1870, and Crook was not promoted to General until late 1872. While it is true he received a brevet promotion to Major General in the Civil War, upon the war's end, he reverted to the permanent rank of lieutenant colonel, and was not promoted to Brigadier General until 1872.
