This is the journal of my character, Morgan, who was living in Massachusetts at the start of the American Revolution, and intending on joining the Continental Army. Through three journal entries spread across a period of nearly twenty years, my character tells the story of the American Revolution from her point of view. In the end, my character reflects on whether joining the Continental Army was worth it, and things changed and stayed the same after the revolution.
