Continuity mistake: When Thaddeus Stevens tells Lincoln that the people elected him to represent them and he should try it, Lincoln's head is directly facing Thaddeus. In the next shot his head is down and certainly not looking at Thaddeus.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Thaddeus Stevens is seen for the first time in the movie (in his office), there is a bust near the edge of his desk. But when Thaddeus stands up, the bust is at least 5 or 6 inches further away from the edge.

Casual Person

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln is giving his soliloquy about abolishing slavery, if you look close, Secretary Seward"s elbows are on the table with his hands folded and his chin resting on them. Soon after, When Lincoln says "Blood's been spilt to afford us this moment!" you'll see that Secretary Seward pulls his elbows off the table and onto his lap. The next cut is Lincoln pointing to Seward and the rest of the bunch screaming "Now! Now! Now!" At this time, Seward's hands are back on the table in the exact position they were before. (01:45:00)

Director Steven Spielberg obtained permission from the museum that hold Abraham Lincoln's original pocket watch to record the sound of the watch for use in the movie.
