** Connor can start liberating forts for the colonial forces as early as Sequence 5, which takes place in 1770. This is 5 years before the war even began, and liberating forts involves hoisting the American flag up, 7 years before said flag was designed.
*** Said flag can also be seen flying at the Battle of Bunker Hill (1775).

* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:While all the games in the series have suggested that the Templars and Assassins seek similar goals with similar deadly means, this game makes it very blatant in various ways. For instance, you might not even realize you're playing as the Templars during the first three chapters of the game because they operate similarly to the Assassins and are led by a reasonable and affable anti-villain. Templar Haytham and Assassin Connor even team up while their interests align, and both Connor and Desmond contemplate a Templar-Assassin alliance to accomplish more together. Furthermore, the game is quick to point out that the Patriots aren't the perfect good guys either, with their actions benefiting whites but doing little for or even harming blacks and Native Americans. By the epilogue, Connor seems disillusioned with Commander Washington and the Patriot cause, disgusted by their railing against oppression whilst still supporting slavery and driving the natives out of their homelands]].

* CharacterDerailment:[[invoked]] A rare InUniverse example. [[spoiler:While under the MindControl of Washington's scepter]], each of King Washington's cronies is a twisted opposite-day caricature of their RealLife selves. [[spoiler:The progressive thinker UsefulNotes/BenjaminFranklin is an indecisive idiot fully lacking in conviction, [[{{Turncoat}} Benedict Arnold]] is Washington's lapdog, while [[FourStarBadass Israel Putnam]] is a DirtyCoward who prefers sneak attacks and {{Human Shield}}s to open conflict. Notably, each man becomes aware of what he's become after being killed (or freed, in Franklin's case).]]

** Two other inaccuracies are specifically mentioned and [[HandWave Hand Waved]] in the [[GeneticMemory Animus]] database as simplification for Desmond's sake: the dozens of difference currencies used by American colonialists in the late 18th century are removed in favour of the British pound; and all American revolutionaries wear the classic blue coats to make them easier to identify, as opposed to the rag-tag unmatched uniforms they wore in real life.

** Fort Wolcott wasn't actually called that until 1798. Doesn't stop the fort's commander from calling it that in 1773.[[note]]It was called Fort George at the time, if you're wondering.[[/note]]

* ShoutOut: Part of the last Sky Journey in the DLC looks and plays very similar to ''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus'': Rakonhnaké:ton needs to climb an enormous, walking bear, although rather than kill it, he needs to pull out the spears stuck in it.

The final spear is even stuck in the bear's forehead, the final weak spot on many of the Colossi.

*** This includes never actually using the term "Mohawk" to refer to the culture, other than a codex entry explaining the history of the term. It's Kanien'kehá:ka all the way.
