- "I have long feared that my sins would return to visit me, and the cost is more than I can bear."
- ―Benjamin Martin[src]
Colonel Benjamin "The Ghost" "Banjo" Martin was a soldier that fought in the French and Indian War for Great Britain and in the American Revolutionary War for the United States of America alongside his friends and his son, Gabriel. Gabriel was killed as well as his other son Thomas by Colonel William Tavington. Before the War was over, Benjamin Martin had his revenge by killing Tavington.
Colonel William Tavington attacked Ben's farm to kill the wounded "Rebels", and burned Ben's house down as well for siding with the enemy, calling it treason. Gabriel was captured, and as Thomas tried to save him, he was shot and killed by Tavington.
Though Ben tried to stop the shooting, he failed, and watched his son die in his arms. In anger, and vengeful rage, he rushed into the burning house, retrieving four rifles and his Tomahawk. He had planned his revenge.
