  • The World Turned Upside Down by John Burgoyne, the general we're fighting against!
  • *humming*
  • Amity meets a militia company going back to Pennsylvania because their 2 months required to work in the army has expired.
  • Our time in the army after 3 YEARS is finally over!
  • They say that “Ol’ Granny Gates will do fine without us”. They also tell Amity about how General Arnold and General Gates fight all the time because Arnold is reckless and Gates is the opposite. They say that they won’t be able to win if they can’t get along.
  • Granny Gates Granny Gates
  • Benedict Arnold Benedict Arnold
  • Later on, Amity meets Cheppa John. Cheppa John starts singing a tune and he tells Amity that it is a song invented by Johnny Burgoyne called “The World Turned Upside Down”

  • Yes, time in the army can “expire”. At the beginning of the American Revolution, the enlistment duration was short , only about 6 months, but was later changed to 3 years.
  • It is a rumor that Gates was once called Granny Gates. If he was called this, it was mostly because of his looks. It is questionable whether this allusion is accurate or not. The author was very accurate when she wrote about Gates and Arnold fighting. They fought very often, mostly because of their different personalities (especially in battle). Arnold was reckless and loved battle, while Gates was cautious, the exact opposite.
  • The World Turned Upside Down was written by John Burgoyne who also surprisingly composed many other plays and songs. The song was all about things going the opposite way they would usually go and sounded like gibberish. It was played at The Battle of Yorktown when the British surrendered because no one expected such a strong, large nation to lose to a country that had only just started and was all militia.
