Hi Everyone!Cinematic interpretations of the American Revolution are not always 100% historically accurate but yet paint an inspiring and patriotic moments throughout war. In order to keep their viewers engaged they enhanced iconic roles and recognized events to drawn in a crowd. In 1957 Walt Disney Production released the film Johnny Tremain, which was based off the historic fiction novel by Esther Forbes. The tale set place in Boston, Massachusetts during the American Revolution where a young 14-year-old boy by the name of Johnny, was an apprentice to a Silverman, Mr. Lapham. While attempting to create silverware for John Hancock, Tremain needed guidance and turned to Paul Revere who also was a blacksmith himself in real history. Unfortunately, Tremain had severely burned his hand and lost the ability to use it. Due to this misfortune Tremain had faced difficulties trying to obtain employment, until being recruited by the Sons of Liberty as a messenger.
