Notable American regimental surgeon Dr. John Hart is portrayed by Brian Cortez. When he was younger, Dr. Hart apprenticed with Castine resident Dr. Calef, an ardent British loyalist. The two argued vehemently about the war, to the point where they broke ties and never spoke again. Cortez noted that the American Revolution was really our first civil war, as families and friends were broken apart by politics.
