Trivia

Filmed in southeastern Arizona in and near the Chiricahua Mountains National Monument, this was the actual land patrolled, protected, and fought in by the famed 10th Cavalry. This all black unit is celebrated at Ft. Huachuca at the Post Military Museum. Fort Huachuca has been in continuous operations since 1877, one of the oldest U.S. Army forts in existence. See more »

Goofs

The scene when the soldiers are singing "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" while burying an officer is erroneous. The year the movie depicts is 1880. Thomas Dorsey, known as the "Father of Black Gospel Music" and the composer of the song, was born in 1899, nineteen years later, and he hadn't written the song until 1932. See more »

... Fine production ... but
21 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

... I did notice that a same scene was used twice in vert two different time & space scenes ... when an "apache" is hidden behind giant rocks shooting/firing (0:36:07) and then again when in distant place from that scene : another "apache" shooted from the very same rocks (1:08:13) ... is akward due to the many places that the film was supposed to be filmed ....
