TURN: Washington's Spies

Gunpowder, Treason and Plot - S2-E10

Factual error: The Battle of Monmouth is shown. There are no leaves on the trees even though the battle was fought in June. In fact it was so hot there were more British casualties from the heat than from battle. It looks like it was filmed on a very cold day in autumn.


Show generally

Factual error: In the opening credits when the flag waves and (after the AMC logo) one side is American and the other British, the American flag is the correct version of the flag adopted by Congress on June 14, 1777 (though there were versions with six pointed stars and versions with five, the so-called Betsy Ross version). However, the version of the Union Jack is incorrect: it includes the Red Saltire of St Patrick's cross which was not added to the flag of Union until 1801.

Pilot - S1-E1

Question: How does Abraham know to go to the Connecticut Coast to sell his cabbage? I get that he was looking to sell it on the black market and was surprised to find his friend. But it seems his trip was unplanned and due to Anna's husband being arrested. And it seems he had no signal or password to find the buyer/black market dealer.
