Other mistake: When Beth visits the Hummel's house, the Hummel baby is supposedly crying because he is sick. In reality, the Hummel baby is crying because the Hummel mother accidentally bends back the baby's foot, when she hands the potato that Beth gives her, to one of the Hummel daughters.
Other mistake: In reality the girls' father, Amos Bronson Alcott, was never in the war nor wounded. However, Jo (Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women) was a nurse in Washington D.C. in 1862 and when she fell ill it was her father who had to go to Washington to get her.
