Revealing mistake: In the final Indian chase at the conclusion of the film, when a covered wagon rolls over, one can see the rope that was used to ensure it tipped over.

Factual error: When John Wayne and Geraldine Page first meet the lead cavalry man and 'Buffalo Baker', you can see in the distance a radio tower on top of the hill/mountain.

Suggested correction: It's not a radio tower. It leans to one side and also the line goes almost to the creek bed. When the troops come back after getting ambushed it's not in the picture anymore.

I'm watching the movie now and I saw the radio tower in the background and I saw no wires and the tower doesn't lean.

Suggested correction: It isn't a tower at all, it's a flaw in the film. As the scene continues, at one point you can see it kind of shake or move a little. It's just a line or flaw on the film itself, it's not a radio tower or anything in the background.
