Goofs

As the Redcoats are shown first approaching Lexington Common, their shadows indicate that they are marching west to east. Their route from Boston actually meant that they marched toward Lexington going east to west. Moreover, the shadows in the scene indicate that the sun is well up, however the Redcoats actually arrived at Lexington common at 5:00 AM as day was breaking. See more »

Beautiful background for studying the Revolution
3 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those Disney gems that should get some renewed attention. The song "The Sons of Liberty" is a modern invention but a very plausible-sounding one. Both the book and the film ignore Sam Adams' cousin John's involvement in Massachusetts colony politics (so not a fault solely of the movie.)

I would not recommend seeing this movie prior to reading the original book, because the cast of characters is greatly simplified for the movie and you may find yourself saying "Who's that?" if you wait to read the book until after seeing the film.

By the way, I think Revere's using a grease pencil and not a Magic Marker in the silver shop consultation.
