** The opening with the Battle of Antietam also has this, when a fellow officer gets his head ''shredded'' by an exploding cannonball, with viscera splattering on Shaw's face.

* {{Crowning Moment of Awesome}}: Shaw tears his paycheck in half, demonstrating unmistakably whose side he's on.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: Just about the entirety of James Horner's score. Highlights include "A Call to Arms", "The Whipping", "Preparations for Battle" and of course "[[OminousLatinChanting Charging Fort Wagner]]".

* GeniusBonus: Viewers familiar with the period immediately before the Civil War will know what to expect when it is mentioned that Colonel Montgomery is from Kansas. Kansas Territory had been the site of a decade-long series of armed clashes between pro-slavery and abolitionist settlers known as "Bleeding Kansas", largely considered a prelude to the Civil War.
* IdiotBall/CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: What makes the scene where Shaw has Trip whipped so hard to watch--besides the violence and sheer ValuesDissonance of it all--is the fact that it ''shouldn't have happened at all.'' The entire sequence only happens because three of the film's characters make stupid decisions at the worst possible time. To elaborate: Trip is whipped because Shaw thinks he tried to desert his post. But as it turns out, Trip was only going to get shoes for the rest of the regiment, and had every intention of returning once his task was complete. But this information is only brought to light once the punishment has already been carried out, and it's not revealed beforehand due to 1) Shaw blindly believing the accusations against Trip without at least investigating to make sure they're real, 2) Trip making absolutely no effort to even explain or defend himself, and 3) Rawlins--who knew the truth about Trip ''the whole time''--only choosing to explain what really happened to Shaw '''after''' Trip has been whipped. A fine example of a tragic, gruesome situation that could have been avoided had these characters made smarter and more timely moves.
* NightmareFuel: When Shaw's wounds are being treated in a hospital, there's a soldier whose leg is getting amputated screaming, pleading and writhing in pain in the background. Even though it's covered by a curtain, [[ShadowDiscretionShot you can still see what's going on a bit,]] and you can still see the soldier's face. His screams are just very unnerving and chilling and just make you feel really bad for him too. On top of that it just shows you how bad war and amputations were back in the day.
* RetroactiveRecognition: That's [[Series/StarTrekVoyager Neelix]] tending Col. Shaw's wounds after the Battle of Antienam in the beginning.
* SpecialEffectsFailure: As [[spoiler:Shaw]] is falling after he has been shot dead, viewers can make out the squib line tied to one of his legs. Also less apparent is the appearance of a tourist's head in the background of the scene where Rawlins declares a "Year of Jubilee". Both of these are pointed by director Edward Zwick during the course of his DVDCommentary.
