Factual errors 

The film states that there were 40,000 Apache warriors at war in Arizona, when in fact there were never anywhere near 40,000 Apaches in the entire state and never more than several hundred fighting the white settlers and the US Army at any one time.

The Apaches are shown wearing feathered warbonnets. This was a headdress worn by Plains Indians - which the Apaches weren't - such as the Sioux and Kiowa. Apaches usually wore simple headbands or no headdress at all, but they never wore feathered warbonnets.

Uniforms of the U.S. Cavalry are set during the wrong era. Uniforms shown are from 1870s and the movie is set in 1856.
