I had to write a paper as a "historical consultant" for The Patriot in college. I think my favorite line in the paper said somthing to the effect of "the depiction of the British regulars as SS divisions rolling across Russia was perhaps a little over the top." Interestingly enough though, I recently read a book on the AWI in South Carolina and found that the combat was actually was much more violent than I had thought previously. However, the atrocities were mostly Tory vs. Whig and grew out of prewar acrimony between back-country farmers and low-country farmers. Regardless... a cheesy movie indeed.
