The Patriot

Ashamed of his savagery during the French and Indian War, Benjamin Martin decided he would sit out the American Revolution, while his oldest son Gabriel enlisted minutes after South Carolina joined the fight. He changes his mind when his house is burned down and one of his children is killed by the savage Green Dragoon commander Colonel Tavington. Quickly realizing that traditional 18th century warfare tactics won’t work, Martin organizes militiamen into a guerilla unit to harass Cornwallis’ army long enough to allow the French to arrive.

This movie is currently playing in Iraq. We are the Green Dragoons.
