  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Conflict
  • 16 year old Betsy Williams and Becky Johnson are walking to battle with their fathers in 1775. Mr. Williams and Mr. Johnson will be fighting for the Continental Army and Betsy and Becky are nurses. Betsy and Becky are best friends and grew up with each other, they are like sisters. The girls and their fathers have left their life and family at home in Williamsburg, Virginia and they are walking to the fort.
  • Climax
  • As the soldiers start batting and disease spreads through the fort Betsy and Becky start getting more and more patients. Betsy starts worrying that their fathers might not come back from the battlefield. Betsy is also scared that they might have to go into battle to save wounded soldiers. Becky makes a promise to Betsy that she will always be by her side.
  • Falling Action
  • The Continental Army goes into battle. The girls watch from the fort as many men are wounded but unable to walk to the fort and get help. Becky thinks that they should run out and help the poor soldiers but Betsy thinks its too dangerous and they should wait until the battle is over. Becky, angry with Betsy, tells her she is a coward and runs out onto the battlefield.
  • Resolution
  • As Becky runs onto the battlefield a British soldier spots her. From the fort Betsy watches as the British soldier shoots her in the leg.Betsy watches as Becky is lying in pain next to the dying wounded she was originally trying to save. In that moment she realizes that she should be there with her friend and not cowering in the fort. She was not only doing this for the freedom of her country but for her and Becky's friendship because even if they lost the war they would still be friends.
  • Betsy decides that instead of just running out onto the battlefield she will hide behind a nearby tree in order not to get spotted by the enemy. She waited until no one was looking and then took Becky and some of the wounded soldiers back to the fort. There she cleaned and tied Becky's wound. Becky, who was very weak from losing so much blood, whispered to her friend that she was the bravest friend she ever had.
  • The Continental Army has come back from the war and they have won! Betsy and Becky's mothers and siblings are at the door and ready to greet them. They are happy to see that everyone has come home from the war.
