Factual error: Robert, as a police officer in NY State, is bound by law to carry his weapon at all times. Robert is never seen with a firearm, not even when in uniform. A police officer would not have his sole sidearm strapped to his calf or ankle under his pant leg, making it hard to access in a situation where he would need to be able to draw it at a moment's notice.

Factual error: Robert begins as a SGT in the NYPD (later promoted to LT). However, he has issued speeding tickets in his brother's/parent's neighborhood. The family Barone lives in Lynbrook NY. Lynbrook is part of Nassau County, Long Island, which is not part of NYC. Robert would have no jurisdiction to issue speeding tickets there.

Revealing mistake: Towards the end of the movie, as Jackson's Corps is attacking the exposed Federal right flank during the Battle of Chancellorsville, when the Confederate forces begin overrunning the Federal encampment, they sweep past two artillery pieces. Notice the second gun - it has a blocked barrel (filled with concrete). Must have been a memorial piece that was on/near the Chancellorsville battlefield.

Factual error: The Logan Ramsey character tells Hawkeye and Trapper that with enough notice he could get them anything, even a B-52. The first B-52A entered service in 1954, a year after the Korean War ended.
