The Best American Revolution Movies

List Criteria: Movies must take place during the American Revolution.

A list of the best movies ever made about the American Revolution. These films all depict the events of the Revolutionary War, or events surrounding it. (For example, "Drums Along the Mohawk" is set during Revolutionary times, but focuses on the adventures of one family experiencing these events. "The Patriot" takes a similar tack, but eventually features more of the actual Revolutionary War battles.) Some of these Revolutionary war movies are based on classic literature about the Revolution, such as "Johnny Tremain."

Because this is an open list, you can add any American Revolution films that may be missing. (But, please, only the best Revolutionay war movies!) The order of the films is also determined by Ranker Community votes, so be sure to pick your favorites!
