What matters is the suspension of disbelief. As I think I've written elsewhere, I was so engrossed in 'The Raid' * I didn't have time to care that the smuggled Confederate uniforms were so clean and neatly pressed.

I've only watched 'Glory' once. I found its representations of the racist attitudes of the period to be one of its main strengths, no matter how disconcerting I found it to watch.

Whilst I like the use of Shaw's letters as way of moving on the plot and adding period colour, I found most of the other characters to be a bit too generic to get to involved with.
