The Patriot

The Patriot was a very accurate movie. It has gone to great lengths to have the most
accurate information and to tell the real story, but still make it interesting. The movie
itself contains tents, ammunition boxes, medical kits, campaign furniture, uniforms,
weapons, battle formation and more that were made completely flawless with help from
museums and the Smithsonian Institute (Revolutionary War experts). Also too some
amazement, the movie has very accurate weather details. One of the main things that isn't
accurate but was put in the movie to show significance, was the old flag that was ripped
but Gabriel sowed it back together and at the end of the movie Benjamin Martin leads the
militia with it.


The Theme is about freedom, but it is a different freedom then you are thinking of. It's
the freedom for Benjamin Martin trying to live his life in peace and not be bothered by
war. Benjamin Martin is a well known war hero from the French Indian war. After that war
all he wants to do is be peaceful and live a happy life with his family. He is shortly
dragged into the war because the English army comes to his farm and kills his son, so he
gets his revenge and returns into another mental state of mind. Martin wants his life back
the way it was with his family on his farm and being peaceful, so for this he forms a
militia and fights for his freedom against the English army.

For most they bring on images of red barns full of men in cowboy hats and women in gingham dresses skipping along as a fiddler plays and the cows and horses look on. These dances are often thought of as a thing of the 1930\'s or something we see in movies such as Oklahoma. However, the form we know of today has far outgrown that stigma.
