Corrected entry: When the alarm from Fort Grant comes in Col. Thursday skips his dinner and rushes to the headquarters. Given the danger of the situation as well as his meticulous sense of duty (also of his subordinates') he'd for sure have summoned his next in line, the Capts. York and Collingwood and Lt. O'Rourke, who are enjoying an undisturbed dinner party at the Collingwoods' quarters. (00:36:50)


Correction: This isn't really a mistake it's questioning the judgement of a charecter who didn't do what one would think he'd normally do. Remember the telegram came after dark and there was nothing the regiment could have done anyway.

Factual error: After the first encounter with the Apaches, the covered wagon is headed to the Fort at full speed. The camera pans to the Apaches on the ridge and you can see a truck driving at the bottom right corner. (00:32:00)
