I have been watching the film again to see some of the things that have been mentioned here, and I have noticed several other things that have not been mentioned. Has anyone else heard the elk bugleing during the chase? It was just before Hawkeye took that giant leap off of the embankment. It is possible I had heard it before and it didn't register,but it was a great touch, very "subtle" Also, all you romantics out there never mention the look Alexandria Cameron gives John at the dinner table that night, there was a lot of meaning in that look and his return look too. The first few times I watched that scene I thought that she had a "Thing" for Hawkeye but after watching it again last night I can see the love she had for John.
About those bedrolls, this is the only really non-period correct item I saw in the film, they are called "The New-Invented Knapsack of 1776" in my Collector's Encyclopedia of the Revolutionary War, so they wouldn't have had them in 1757.(or they wouldn't have been called "New") Joe
