Braveheart - Battle of Stirling Bridge
Braveheart is all about the Battle of Stirling Bridge. The battle was fought next to Stirling Bridge and not in an open field like in the movie. You probably all don't care but I do because I'm Scottish and I'm studying History

a) There is no Stirling Bridge in the movie because there is not Stirling Bridge in real life. b) The movie is NOT "all about" Sterling Bridge. That is merely one battle depicted. c) If you want to start talking historical inaccuracies, then the entire movie should be listed--very little beyond the names of people and places is accurate.

I agree that this is a big error. The movie shows the Scots winning by charging like (Hollywood)lunatics at the English, when the battle was really won by astute tactical thinking.
