Johnny Tremain was a boy apprenticing to be a silversmith with an adopted family, the Lapham's during the Revolutionary War.
One day John Hancock came by to get a new pitcher and Johnny took care of it, he had been working for days trying to form it perfectly; just how Hancock wanted it.
While Johnny was working, one of the other boys apprenticing, Dove gave him a broken crucible and Johnny poured melted silver all over his hand, after this, he became a cripple.
Johnny's thumb is melted to his hand, and there is no chance of him ever becoming a silversmith. When he is finally back on his feet, he is filled with such anger and irritation.
He had been searching for a new job for a while now, and one night the youngest Lapham, Isannah felt very sick, so he and Cilla went to the dock where he revealed that he had a cup that made a connection with a rich merchant Johnathan Lyte. This meant if he couldn't find a job, he would go to the Lyte's mansion, to quer about his cup.
Every time he tried to find a job, he was rejected because of his hand, but one day he went into the Boston Observer and met a boy named Rab, and his Uncle owned the place. He offered him a job after they talked, and Johnny said he may come back, which he ended up doing.
The Boston Observer
Johnny was heartbroken when Isannah said she hated him and his hand when he bought her gifts, so that's when he decided to finally go and show that he is related to the Lyte's, and that he can go live with them.
I hate you and your dreadful hand.
That night, he went to his mother's gravestone and for the first time cried since he become crippled.
Johnny goes to the Lyte's and finds out that Mr. Lyte has the same cups has him and Johnny has the missing one. Instead of being welcomed by the family, Mr. Lyte takes his cup and accuses him of stealing it.
One day Cilla visits the Observer and tells Johnny and Rab that Mr. Lytes daughter has taken Isannah to live with her, so now Cilla is working for the Lytes.
Johnny went to court because he "stole" the cup, which he really didn't; his matri gave it to him, and Cilla, Rab, and a lawyer were there to stand up for him, and he never went to jail.
It's not true!
After all this, he went to go work for the Boston Observer with Rab, and also to live with him and his Aunt and Uncle. His job was to deliver newspapers on a fiesty horse, and through this, he learns to overlook his crippled hand.
A young RedCoat asked for Johnny's help in order to run away and go live as a farmer. Johnny helped him in exchange for his gun so that he could give it to Rab. Later, they boy who ran away was killed.
It was the night of Paul Revere's midnight ride, where he warned that the British would be coming by boat by hanging a lantern on the old church door. Then Rab decides that it is time for him to go fight.
The Sons of Liberty met in the Boston Observers attic to dicuss, and now that Johnny was "apart" of Rab's family, he too was a Son of Liberty, here they talked about the Boston Tea Party and what was to happen.
Because Johnny would be chopping open chests of tea, he had to practice using his crippled manu. All of these experiences had gained his confidence through helping at the Boston Observer.
Rab decides to go fight, but Johnny hates the idea, and does not want him to leave. He knows it is probably bene though.
They all dressed up as Mohawk Indians, and Johnny was the one to alert everyone that the Boston Tea Part was put into action. While chopping chests and dumping tea, Johnny recognized the mal Dove on board, and he was stealing tea, so Rab threw him into the water.
A Man Can Stand Up
Johnny finds out that a mob is coming to destroy the Lyte estate, so he goes to help Cilla pack up, there he finds family trees showing that his mother is closely related to the Lytes, and he learned more about his Patri.
The Boston Observer
Rab was shot, and was so dys, that he died. But as James Otis said earlier, "A man can stand up." That's what Rab did, and that is what Johnny was going to do; and before his mort, Johnny was given his gun.
