Goofs
Ruby Thewes' cloth strips that are used as chin straps change position while she is introducing herself to Ada Monroe on the porch. They go from on her left breast, to the middle of her chest, to over her shoulder in the close up shots.

When Inman regains consciousness, chained to the other prisoners who are dead, the hand of the body next to him, which he moves from his neck, moves on its own after he places it on the ground.

During the battle scene, it appears that some of the American flags being carried by the Union soldiers are the "50 star" type flags. The American flag with 50 stars was not used until at least 1960, after Hawaii was made a state.

Ruby: Every piece of this is man's bullshit. They call this war "a cloud over the land" but they made the weather and then they stand in the rain and say "Shit, it's rainin'!"

Q
Did Brendan Gleeson do his own fiddle-playing?
A
Yes. Brendan Gleeson, who plays Ruby's father Stobrod, is an accomplished fiddle player. He is credited with performing three fiddletunes in the movie: Bonaparte's Retreat, Ruby with the Eyes that Sparkle, and Sittin' on Top of the World. Incidentally, Jack White, who plays the mandolin as Georgia, is also an accomplished musician, playing guitar and singing vocals with two different bands, The White Stripes and The Raconteurs. White is also credited with performing three songs in the movie: Christmas Time Will Soon Be Over, Wayfaring Stranger, and Great High Mountain.
Q
What was wrong with Bosie?
A
Many viewers think Teague's deputy Bosie (Charlie Hunnam) was an albino with his pale skin and white hair. It is mentioned in the book that he had frequent and random nosebleeds that made him unsuitable as a soldier, but no specific disease or condition is named. A few possibilities that viewers have mentioned include anemia, some sort of bleeding disorder such as Von Willebrand's disease (hemophilia), cancer, or syphillis.
Q
To what battle/war do the opening scenes of the movie refer?
A
The beginning of the movie portrays The Battle of the Crater, which occurred outside Petersburg, VA on July 30, 1864 during the American Civil War.
