* BlatantLies: Merrick is about to throw his hat into the ring for the temporary mayoralty, but gets cut off. That night, he states to himself that he's not sought a political position because the fourth estate is more important. He then glares at Mayor Farnum with obvious envy.

** The "Nigger General" Fields claims to be a Civil War general, which no one believes for a second. The real Fields did in fact make this claim, and was treated as a local celebrity much like San Francisco's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emperor_Norton "Emperor" Norton]].

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory:
** The series researched Deadwood's history very well, but takes many liberties with events and characters.
** Random Cornish miners are shown conversing together in Cornish, but the language had effectively died out by this time. In fact, the actors are actually speaking Gaelic.

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Farnum has a poetic streak that he's very proud of, but occasionally borders on DelusionsOfEloquence. Merrick could give [[{{Frasier}} Frasier Crane]] a run for his money, but subverts this when he challenges a public announcement of Jarry's as hiding a complete lack of meaning in big scary words.

** Farnum's campaign speech basically amounts to "Sol Starr's a dirty Jew -- vote for me!"
