Which Hollywood movie do you think got its history wrong?
I just saw 5 to 6 hours straight in the History Channel of how American patriots won the revolution against the British. It went into detail how Gen. Cornwallis fought, chasing Nathaniel Greene all over South Carolina while Gen. Morgan was being pursued by that ruthless British cavalry officer.
Nathaniel decided to split his much smaller army hoping Cornwallis would split his, making them a bit vulnerable. And Cornwallis did and it paved the way for the eventual defeat of the British.
Gen. Morgan utilized his militia effectively, ordering them to make it look like they’re running away. It was a trap and that ruthless British cavalry officer ended up defeated and running for his life.
There were two battle campaigns here. But in the Mel Gibson movie, The Patriot, they combined them into just one!
