General Charles Cornwallis

General Charles Cornwallis first came to my attention at the age of 15 (when I was 15, not Cornwallis). An actor played him in the Mel Gibson film The Patriot. I suppose I should have paid more attention to the historic import of Cornwallis’s role in the Revolutionary War, but I was unable to move on from his comical last name. Also, how hard do I really need to pay attention to a Mel Gibson movie?
