Charles, was a young 13 year old boy living in the outskirts of Boston. He knew nothing, and wandered why everybody fought concerning Britain and the colonies. But as he matured he became a man, just like his name. Now he’s a young man who is very protective of his family, his nation, and his home. For this reason, he joins the army, but the story doesn’t end yet. He goes through confusion and guilt whether he’s doing the right thing through his military life. By reading this you’d be able to grow with Charles and experience how life could have been for a patriot soldier during the American Revolution.
After the American Revolution ended, some things changed, but some things stayed the same. Even though the colonists had fought for justice for all, reality wasn’t like that. White rich men, such as wealthy land owners and merchants still dominated power and politics. Because of that the rights of women, slaves, and Native Americans didn’t improve at all. Slavery in particular remained for a long time. In despite of the inequality between people, birth did not decide one’s social status anymore, and people had more opportunities. The freedom of religion was also ensured, and people could believe in whatever they wanted to believe in.
