Factual error: In the flag ceremony Lincoln raise a US Flag with 35 stars which was in use from 1863-1865. Later, Lincoln is riding through the aftermath of a battle scene and the soldier following is carrying a flag which matches the 1877 US flag with 38 stars.

Trivia: 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. So, in several scenes where Lincoln is in contemplative thought and fiddling with his watch, the ticking watch sound is actually the same as Lincoln heard 150 years ago.

Question: In all the articles I have read, Booth shot Lincoln then jumped out of the box into the audience below, spraining his ankle. He managed to escape because the audience thought it was part of the act. In the movie the show is interrupted by the Manager coming onto the stage to announce that Lincoln had just been shot - no disruption during the show until then. Is this a goof or not?
