School House Rocks - Historical Inaccuracy
In the "Shot Heard Round the World" short, about the Revolutionary War there are two mistakes as it pertains to the Battle of Bunker Hill. First, it says the battle was at Bunker Hill, it wasn't, it was at Breed's Hill. Secondly, the short says Samuel Prescott instructed the troops not to fire until they could see the whites of the British's eyes, Isreal Putnam is the person who said it.
