Anachronisms 

When McB is playing cards the deck has both the pictures (hearts, spades, etc) and the number in the corner. They didn't put #s on cards until 1864 and it was extremely rare to see a deck with them until 20-30 years after the war

Edwina sings a couple of lines from the gospel song "In the Garden," which wasn't written until 1912, more than 50 years after the time of the story.

Character error 

In the opening scene (c. 3 minutes) the little girl doesn't actually pick the mushrooms, she just gathers up previously picked (and very clean) fungi by their cups. To pick a mushroom in the wild one must grasp it at the bottom of the stem or use a knife. Picking a mushroom by grasping the cup would break it in two.

As Carol leaves the gazebo after Edwina arrives, she has to run a good distance to get to the tree where the blue rag is kept to alert patrols to "yanks", but when McB hears horses, he can see the front gate from the gazebo.
