Julian MondonedoSummer Reading: Rise To RebellionPoint of View:Rise to Rebellionis written in 3rdperson omniscient. Jeff Shaara, theauthor, made each chapter about a certain character’s experiences, which allowed us toview events in a different perspective. An example could be a critical event such as theBoston Massacre, in which Jeff Shaara shows us first how the British soldiers wereforced into a hopeless situation, displaying their innocence, while in the followingchapters, as colonists’ perspective, the event was seen as a heartless massacre. This styleof writing was interesting.Plot/Conflict:The main conflicts in the story are man vs. man, or America vs. England.In the Boston Massacre, a mob of colonists assaults British troops on patrol duty, whichresults in a bloody mess. In the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Breed’s Hill, the Battle ofLexington and Concord, all were the American’s act of defiance towards British rule.There are other conflicts that are significant, but do not include bloodshed, such as radicalvs. conservative movements. In the Continental Congress, radical leaders, such as JohnAdams, Sam Adams, Patrick Henry, etc, all pushed for America’s independence fromEngland. However, conservative leaders such as John Dickinson thought thatreconciliation and a peaceful solution would be more appealing and would avoid war.
