] Did anyone happen to see this double-biography on Sunday night on A&E?
Unfortunately, I noticed a few editing errors late in the show. The use of American Revolutionary War re-enactors to represent Wellington's troops in India, while not entirely accurate is understandable. (There's very few recreating that period and there are more similarities in uniforms there than to the Napoleonic period.) However, they mixed in a few clips from the Rev-War period into the footage covering the battle of Waterloo. Most wouldn't notice, and generally the uniforms were pretty good for the period, but for someone who knows, it's a little jarring.
