** Even firefighter companies behave like gangs, fighting each other instead of putting out a fire.

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory:
** The New York City Draft Riot scene takes a few liberties with the events that actually transpired. The film exaggerates the extent of the riot and the sort of events that took place.
** It is not known whether or not [[spoiler:the US Navy actually fired artillery on Paradise Square]], but it's probable that it didn't actually happen, though some historical evidence suggests [[spoiler:artillery was used, albeit on land]].

Added DiffLines:

** Arguably, [[spoiler: Amsterdam]]'s killing of [[spoiler: Bill]] could also be seen this way by the latter, since it comes after his MortalWoundReveal, and at a moment when it's certain that his vision of what America should be is irretrievably lost (see EndOfAnAge and HiddenDepths above).
