The Conspirator

Factual error: Early in the film following Lincoln's assassination, we see a newspaper stating that Lincoln's body is being transported to his final resting place of "Springfield IL". At that time the state either wouldn't have been shortened, or "Ill." would have been used. The two letter state name abbreviations were not introduced until the 1960s, at the same time as ZIP codes.
