Henry Lee III (January 29, 1756 – March 25, 1818), also known as Light-Horse Harry Lee, was an early American Patriot who served as the ninth Governor of Virginia and as the Virginia Representative to the United States Congress. During the American Revolution, Lee served as a cavalry officer in the Continental Army and earned the nickname "Light-Horse Harry". Lee was the father of Confederate general Robert E. Lee.

Influence on the movie "The Patriot"

According to Screenwriter Robert Rodat, the character "Col. Harry Burwell" in the movie "The Patriot", played by Chris Cooper, was a composite character partially based upon some of the exploits of Henry "Lighthorse Harry" Lee, although the actual Col. Lee would have been too young to have been the same character portrayed in the movie.[1]
