: I was searching for information about Mel Gibson's new movie "The Patriot" which is being filmed here in my native state of South Carolina when I came across this web site. To say the least I was blown away. Since the movies release I have been a major fan. For so long I have watched "Historical" movies only to be disapointed in the end for there lack of historical accuracy. Not so with LOTM. The music, scenery, costumes, historical accuracy, what more could you want in a movie.
: Personally my area of historical knowledge and interest has been the War between the States, but I am branching out into the earlier periods in America's History. In large part due to LOTM. I am a War between the States re-enactor here in South Carolina but I am thinking about getting into the other periods of re-enacting.
: From reading the messages on the message board, I have learned thing about the movie that I didn't know and have really enjoyed the discussions on military tactitcs and life on the frontier.
: Keep it up and I plan on visiting this message board again and again.
