Contrary to what is shown, Commodore Hopkins was not ordered to to to Abaco in the Bahamas, but rather to the Virginia coast. He exceeded his orders in attacking the Bahamas seeking military supplies, and was later court martialed for this and other questions regarding his command. See more »
the other reviewer hit the nail right on the head, this movie is full of historical inaccuracies, the house of burgess is in Williamsburg, Virginie, and John Paul Jone's brother lived and is buried in historic downtown fredericksburg, a good two hour drive from Williamsburg. the Virginie love triangle is rather silly. despite the flaws, i've liked this movie ever since i was a little boy and saw it on TNT during one of the fourth of July marathons... maybe i like my heroes a little stiff, but i thought Robert stack did an alright job. although, it would be nice to see the movie remade with a little more historical accuracy, and maybe have Mel Gibson or Russel crowe or a Scottish actor play jpj... he'd sound a little more accurate, i can watch this movie over and over again.
