    Major-General Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee III (January 29, 1756 – March 25, 1818) was an early American Patriot and politician. He served as the ninth Governor of Virginia and as the Virginia Representative to the United States Congress. Lee's service during the American Revolution as a cavalry officer in the Continental Army earned him the nickname by which he is best known, "Light-Horse Harry". He was the father of Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate armies in the American Civil War.

    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]
