Character error 

When FDR calls for an end to Ish-ti-opi's ceremonial dance, Eleanor Roosevelt invites everyone to thank Ish-ti-opi in Cherokee. Ish-ti-opi (a.k.a., Wesley L. Robertson) was a Choctaw Indian, not a Cherokee. In any event, the word "yakoke" used for "thank you" is correctly Choctaw, not Cherokee. The Cherokee words for "thank you" are "wado" and "s'gi".

Factual errors 

When FDR turns on the car radio, music begins to play almost immediately. In the pre-transistor era depicted, all radios used tubes and took many seconds to warm up before providing any sound.

The King and Queen are shown arriving at Springwood to be greeted by FDR. The real King George VI and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother accompanied Franklin D. Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt to Hyde Park after several days in Washington, DC, arriving with the Roosevelts.

The Navy bandsmen playing during dinner are dressed as officers--bandsmen in the Navy are enlisted sailors. The conductor of the band would have been an officer or warrant officer, but not the bandsmen.

When the King and Queen of England drive through the gates at Hyde Park, and shortly thereafter when they are received by the president, the Marine detail would have been sharply commanded to raise their rifles to the position of "present-arms"--their rifles remain at their sides the entire time.

The King and Queen arrive to greet FDR at his home Springwood, but the building shown in the movie bears little resemblance to Springwood.

The dinner depicted in the film took place on June 10, 1939. In the movie, the moon is full that night. In actuality, the moon was half-full that night.

When Mrs. Roosevelt (FDR's mother) formally greets Queen Elizabeth (when she arrives in the dining room for the formal dinner), Mrs. Roosevelt calls her "Your Highness". She should have called her "Your Majesty", which is the correct title for a the King or Queen.
