The US Army USAMRIID had to euthanize over 400 Monkeys and decontaminate the building. What makes the strains of Filo virus more complicated and dangerous is that no one knows where they originated and there are only theories on how it is spread and contracted.

In the movie, he is a tall white man with little to no white hair. He does not teach little tree lessons in the movie like he does in the book. When Granpa is sick in the movie he tells Little Tree about a farm in the clearing and how soldiers and Granpa helped the people out with their land.

The Marburg virus itself is almost like a disease from some sci-fi flick I have seen.
Unlike the fictional character Benjamin Martin, Francis Marion was a man without any kids. Francis Marion did not even get married until after the war. The whole father aspect of the movie was once again a fictional piece added to this movie to make the war more dramatic. It gave Benjamin Martin something to fight for instead of going with what actually happened. This was my take on the main character in the movie The Patriot.
