Eveline's hair should not have been down in a short braid with a colored hair-band at the end. Women of that time typically had their hair twisted up at the nape of their neck and, also, were very conscious that the piece (snood or similar) that is holding up their hair is of the same color as their hair.

I have watched a lot of botched historic movies, especially about my country Canada. This was an excellent movie. Great care was taken to do it right. I was absolutely spellbound by the story of "The Last Confederate". I do not agree with Mr. "Why Bother", truth is why bother us with the boring trivial statement you call your opinion. I mean you could 49, but your opinion makes you sound like your 12. A lot of care and love for history as well as a sense of family went in to this movie, as well as the belief in telling a good story. Movies like "Gone With The Wind" is a good story in general is typical of Hollywood screwing up history, just like filming a movie called "Saskatchewan" in Jasper, Alberta.
