The Patriot Film: General Charles O'Hara


General Charles O'Hara, Portrayed by Peter Woodward in the movie The Patriot (2000)
General Charles O'Hara does little but snivel to General Charles Cornwallis. He basically acts like General Cornwallis' lapdog throughout the film. The one exception is when he reigns in Colonel William Tavington during Benjamin Martin's visit to General Cornwallis under a flag of truce. What might have been O'Hara's 'big scene' at the end of the film when he surrenders to General George Washington following the Battle of Yorktown is reduced to a narration by Benjamin Martin.
