Did You Know?

Edit
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 »
