Colonel Benjamin "The Ghost" 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.

BiographyEdit

Tavington's AssaultEdit

Benjamin Martin -2
Benjamin during Tavington's burning of his farm.

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.

Surprise RevengeEdit

The GhostEdit

After Ben had attacked the British soldiers, he was known as the "Ghost". He killed 20 of them with his three sons( if you count the tied up one).
