Something strange had happened at Manor Farm! Old Major had a dream...a dream about taking over the farm and overthrowing the humans.
The animals listened intently and were inspired, gaining a whole new outlook on life.
Three days later, Old Major died. The animals felt that the time was nigh for a rebellion!
The seven commandments
When Mr. Jones came back from town on Sunday, he forgot to feed the starving animals again! The animals began to take food out of the shed themselves when Jones heard the commotion outside and ran to see what was going on.
The animals attacked! Snowball led the animals into battle and defeated Jones. Manor Farm was finally theirs.
A short time later, Snowball and the pigs came up with The Seven Commandments: Specific rules to follow at all times.
