:Thanks, Joe! It is great to learn some history & be aware of what REALLY went on during this incident, but you are right that this is, after all, a movie filled with fictional characters set against a BACKDROP of historical events. As such, it does a remarkable job, I think, of being true to the period and capturing the essence of what it must have been like to be there during this siege. It doesn't have to be 100% accurate for it to be wonderful entertainment. I DO enjoy hearing about the *real* people of the era, though, and it's great that you and others can provide us with this additional info. It adds to the enjoyment of the whole experience.
