Thomas’ Journal

Posted on


In this assignment, we used what we had learnt in our revolution seminar (in my case, the American Revolution) and wrote a journal from a character’s perspective. I wrote from the perspective of a colonist that was not fully against the British but still demanded freedom and justice. I found picking a perspective easy but going into a conflict more challenging compared to the last time we did it with the Russian Revolution.

Personally, only using three turning points was in a way, both challenging yet easy. There was a lot of little things I wanted to write in the journal with several turning points. Three turning points that would both include the beginning of the revolution and the end (to me) was too much of a stretch and I could only include the beginning to the mid-point of the revolution. I choose to leave out the fighting as I think it was too much and did not impact the revolution as much compared to the beginning of the revolution.
