: Greetings & Salutations,

: I have never posted on this forum before, so I hope this is not a totally inappropriate question. I resently saw the film "The Patriot" and took note to the way the main character fought with his knife & tomahawk, and to the fact that it was simular to the way in which those weapons were used in LOTM. My question is dose anyone here know if this was based on accounts of the way these weapons were used at that time or just what the fight coordinator thaught it would look like. Please don't take this the wrong way, I'm asking because of my intrest in this period, archeaology, and hoplology. Thankyou all.

Hello Benjamin:

I tried to post about this a bit ago but it hasn't appeared, so here I try again.

Mark A. Baker was a tacticals, weapons, accoutrements, etc., technical advisor on both LOTM and "The Patriot". I suspect that part of that eerie 'deja vu'-like feeling you're having might be due to that factor in some small part.
