|I can forgive the wrong flag. There's only one Confederate flag most people are familiar with, the stars and bars on a red field. The Thing that gets me is MM keeps saying it's a gold dollar when it's a 20 dollar coin.|

| Good spotting, of course being a Kiwi they could've had the Stars & Stripes flying on that ship and I wouldn't have picked it! I never seem to notice out of place things like that in a movie til the second viewing.
As for Hollywood, there is a saying History is written by the victors. I think we should add - And then rewritten by Hollywood!

|There is no accounting for historical accuracy in the movies. My dad was a historical techincal advisor on the movie The Great Raid (Joesph Fiennes, Benjamin Bratt), and it was panned for being "too accurate". Please!|

| And that was the same BC Ferry ride that Julie took when she came to see me.
That movie was one of the first big budgets to be filmed here

|Not just their own timeline, Hollywood has its own sense of geography, also. I remember seeing the scene in `Bird on a Wire` where Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn caught a ferry boat ride from Detroit,MI to Racine, Wisconsin.|

|Hollywood runs on it's own timeline which all of us little people fail to understand.|

Are we seriously debating whether the movie adaptation of a novel that featured, among other thiings, the abduction of Abe Lincoln, is historically accurate?

That would be my guess. Few people would have recognized the third flag of the Confederacy or known what it was. Heck, I've never even heard of it. Also, how many Confederate generals can the common person name? Especially if the movie is also being targeted to international audiences who may be less familiar with U.S. Civil War details (although international people tend to know more American history than most Americans do ).
Great finds, though. You certainly know your Civil War history!

|The real Texas which was captured before completion by the Union Army only had two cannon mounted-one fore and one aft. l was wondering about Stonewall Jackson also.|
