Goofs

The Lincolns are hosting a reception for General and Mrs. Tom Thumb, two dwarfs from P.T. Barnum's circus. One Senator dryly says to the other that maybe Lincoln should appoint General Thumb to command the Union armies. The other says, "After the disaster at Fredericksburg, it'd be an improvement." An earlier scene shows Lincoln encouraging his 11-year-old Willie to come down to the reception. Willie Lincoln died February 20, 1862. The Battle of Fredericksburg was on December 13 of that year.

Mary Todd Lincoln: Well, I just can't stand all the women stealing covetous glances at my husband.
Abraham Lincoln: Now, if they're stealing glances, I don't reckon it's out of any covetousness on their part. They just can't believe the downright homeliness of the critter.
