My name is Eathon. A boy that lost his one and only family member when he was 15. Before this big turning point that happened in my ordinary life, I was a coward, and a person that never takes any risk. Though, I had changed throughout this revolution, I came from a faint-hearted person into a risk-taker, all thanks to my Uncle—he told me to be brave. In this journal entry, I recorded all my feelings and experiences during the revolution. As you read, this journal is going to bring you to the past viewing the American Revolution again, through my eyes. If you want to learn about how a rebellion changed people’s lives, then I invite you to read this journal.
Many things changed after the revolution: we had a president instead of a monarch, the ideas of equality spread because people saw the succeed of Americans revolt and thought that change was possible, the government changed from a monarchy into a democracy, the senate was created instead of the parliament, and most importantly, we won independence from British. on the contrary, there were things that stayed the same: slavery is still happening to people, we still had a body of government(senate) that makes important decisions, only white and rich men had power, and women still didn’t have more power than man.
