Factual error: In the third chapter of the movie, as the Union soldiers run into the Crater, they are flying the fifty-star American flag which is not the correct flag for the time period. The flag, if it is counting all states, even Confederate states at that time, should have 35 stars. A star for West Virginia, which seceded from Virginia during the American Civil War, was added to the flag in 1863.

Question: What does Ada say to her daughter at the table at the end of the film?

Answer: I hear "Grace Inman, nobody said you could eat."

Answer: I don't know the exact words, but she says something like, "No one told you to eat yet, Miss Inman." This was probably just to let the audience know for sure that she was Inman's daughter from their one night together.
