Anachronisms 

This movie is set in 1817-1820. Richard and Betsy were married "shortly after" Betsy's father died. The walls are adorned with their wedding photos, but photography was not introduced until 1839. Even then the pictures would have been small hand held daguerreotypes, not big framed enlargements.
