The Patriot: Go To War Scene
American History → The American Revolution → War Debate
Colonists rally together to discuss the importance of building their own, American nation to protect their rights from the tyrant that they consider to be the king of England. Some are in support of a war for independence, while others are in opposition. Captain Martin urges them to acknowledge alternatives to war, and they speak to the results of those efforts: they did not work, and the only path to independence is war.
