Factual error: When Hondo is introduced to the young cavalry lieutenant, Buffalo Baker remarks that it is 1870. Later, when the survivors return to the ranch, they claim to have killed Victorio; however, Victorio was actually killed in 1880 in Mexico, by Mexican troops.

Suggested correction: They are talking about when "Victorio" the Indian chief dies. In the movie though the Indian chief is "Vittorio" he is a fictional character. So you can't compare his death to the real Victorio.

When Mrs. Lowe sees Vitoria for first time he says his name is Victorio.
