The Patriot is a 2000 American historical fiction war film that mainly takes place in rural South Carolina. It depicts the story of an American swept into the American Revolutionary War when his family is threatened. Benjamin Martin is a composite figure based on several Revolutionary War heroes. Even though it is a historical fiction it does give a realistic "feel" for how families non-intentionally got involved in the Revolutionary War and eventually the support of the Declaration of Independence. These questions do not include any of the violent rescue scene so you can bypass that.
