  • Goofs:Incorrectly regarded as goofs: In the opening scenes, when Shaw is seen marching beside his soldiers towards the Antietam battle, the rank insignia on his epaulets change from that of a captain (two bars) to that of a second lieutenant (no insignia within the epaulet borders) because it's a flashback.
    Continuity: When Shaw and Cabot are talking to General Harter about their transferring their men to combat command, Cabot has his hands on his lap when the camera faces him, but as the camera faces General Harter, Cabot's face is leaning on one hand.
    Factual errors: As Rawlins hands out the Enfield rifles, he calls out each one's serial number. Authentic Enfield rifles don't have serial numbers, but the reproductions do.
    Continuity: The Confederate soldier that Trip wrestles with gains a hat just before being clubbed.
    Continuity: Shadow on Shaw's face when he tells men he will tear up his cheque.
