One have to remember that they are written for 10-15 year old-ish.
the author have said that it is difficult not to write something wrong, because the first constants used to be considered the truth, but by the time the rest of the book had been written, those truths had been disproved.
Also a good theme in the books is that you shouldn't always believe what a historian have written, because the winner writes the history.
Martin Sheen, who played him `Gettysburg', is apparently only 5' 7", and although in my opinion that wasn't the only thing wrong with his portrayal of Lee, everybody else in the movie towered above him so you could be forgiven for thinking that Lee was short if that was your only source of information. But if it was your only source, shame on you!
Read the book it is spectacular.
