Continuity mistake: In the scene where the three Confederate soldiers are about to be executed for desertion, a blindfold is placed around the deserter on the right. It is a narrow strip of cloth covering his eyes. The camera pans to the firing squad and then back to the three men. The blindfold on the deserter on the right, is now much wider.

Continuity mistake: When Samuel Zook's brigade crosses the pontoon bridge at Fredericksburg, the title card refers to him as 'Colonel Zook'. However, some time later General Hancock addresses him as 'General Zook' and his shoulder straps indicate that he is in fact a brigadier-general, not a colonel.

Mistakes

In the scene near the beginning of the film, when the 2 brothers are fixing to leave to join the army. After the mother gives them the flag, the shot changes to the 2 brothers. You can see the boom mic and the camera in the reflection of their shiny brass buckles.

Trivia

General Robert E. Lee was shown throughout the movie as wearing the three star insignia of a Colonel, rather than the three stars surrounded by a wreath as was the proper insignia for all Confederate generals. General Lee actually wore this throughout most if not all of the war, and this is accurate.
