  影片对白

  SPEAKER: Our first order of business...

  SIMMS: And our last if we vote a levy...

  SPEAKER: Order! Order! Mr. Simms, you do not have the floor. Our first order of

  business will be an address by Colonel Harry Burwell of the Continental Army.

  Colonel Harry Burwell.

  BURWELL: You all know why I am here. I am not an orator and I will not try to

  convince you of the worthiness of our cause. I am a soldier and we are at war.

  From Philadelphia we expect the declaration of independence. Eight of the

  thirteen colonies have levied money in support of a Continental Army. I ask

  South Carolina to be the ninth.

  SIMMS: Massachusetts and Virginia may be at war, but South Carolina is not.

  CROWD: Here!

  BURWELL: It is not a war for the independence of one or two colonies but for the

  independence of one nation.

  WITHINGTON: And now yes, what nation is that?

  HOWARD: An American nation.

  WITHINGTON: There is no such a nation, and if you speak of one, that is treason.

  HOWARD: We are citizens of the American nation and our rights are being

  threatened by a tyrant three thousand miles away.

  MARTIN: Would you tell me, please, Mr. Howard, why should I trade one tyrant

  three thousand miles away for three thousand tyrants one mile away? An elected

  legislature can trample a man's rights as easily as a King can.

  BURWELL: Captain Martin, I understood you to be a Patriot.

  MARTIN: If you mean by Patriot, am I angry about the taxation without

  representation? Yes I'm. Should the American colonies govern themselves

  independently? I believe they can and they should. But if you're asking me am I

  willing to go to war with England, then the answer is most definitely no.

  MIDDLETON: This from the same Captain Benjamin Martin whose fury was so famous

  during the Wilderness Campaign?

  MARTIN: I was intemperate in my youth.

  MIDDLETON: Temperance can be a convenient disguise for fear.

  BURWELL: Mr. Middleton, I fought with Captain Martin under Washington in the

  French and Indian War. There's not a man in this room, or anywhere, for that

  matter, to whom I would more willingly trust my life.

  CROWD: Here!

  MARTIN: There are alternatives to war. We take a case before the king. We plea

  with him.

  BURWELL: Yes we tried that.

  MARTIN: Oh then we try again and then again if necessary to avoid a war.

  BURWELL: Benjamin, I was at Bunker Hill. The British advanced three times and we

  killed over seven hundred of them at point blank range and still they took the

  ground. That is the measure of their resolve. If your principles dictate

  independence, then war is the only way. It has come to that.

  CROWD: Here!

  MARTIN: I have seven children. My wife is dead. And who's to care for them if I

  go to war?

  BURWELL: Wars are not fought only by childless men.

  MARTIN: Granted. But mark my words: this war will be fought not on the frontier

  or on some distant battlefield. But amongst us, among our homes. Our children

  will learn it with their own eyes. And the innocent will die with the rest of

  us. I will not fight. Because I will not fight, I will not cast a vote that will

  send others to fight in my stead.

  BURWELL: And your principles?

  MARTIN: I'm a parent. I don't have the luxury of principles.
