Peaceful farmer Benjamin Martin is driven to lead the Colonial Militia during the American Revolution when a sadistic British officer murders his son. The story is inspired by the lives of the revolutionaries Andrew Pickens, Thomas Sumter and Francis Marion known as “The Swamp Fox”, for Captain Benjamin Martin (Mel Gibson) in the film, and the British Legion Commander Banastre Tarleton, who is Colonel William Tavington (Jason Isaacs) in the film. The film reconstituted, with historical liberties, certain episodes of the American Revolutionary War, including scenes of the victory of the American revolutionaries during the battle of Cowpens, which took place on January 17, 1781.
