Corrected entry: When Gates is talking to Ian under the Trinity Church, he says that Thomas Newton placed the lantern in the Old North Church to signal how the British were coming. However, it was the Church sexton, Robert Newman, who actually placed the lanterns. Even though Ian probably wouldn't know the difference, surely three historians (Patrick Gates, Ben Gates, and Dr. Chase) would have known the correct person in so important an event in American history. There was no reason to throw Ian off track by saying this, since he didn't even know how many lanterns were placed.

Corrected entry: Ever wonder why Vera-Ellen is always shown in the movie wearing a high collar dress/shirt/pajama top/etc.? She was suffering from premature aging effects (she was only 33 at the time) from what is believed to have been anorexia. It showed predominantly in her chest and neck - hence, the desire for her to have her neck covered.

Corrected entry: After the parade, Red shows up in his Navy uniform. He has several medals on the shirt (three, I believe). The only problem is that one of them is an Army Commendation Medal. Red was in the Navy. While different branches of services can recommend medals for other branches, had the Army recommended Red for a medal, the Navy would have given him a Navy Commendation Medal, not the Army equivalent. The Army medal has the several small stripes in the center (as the one Red is wearing does). The Navy medal has no pinstripes only the two wide ones.
