Old Major, a respected and old boar, had a unique dream one night. He called for a meeting to happen the next night. Here, with all the animals gathered around him, he told of his dream about an up rising against the humans.
FOUR LEGS GOOD TWO LEGS BAD
Three days after the animals meeting, Old Major died. The animals took it upon themselves to start the rebellion. But, to successfully start a worl without humans, Mr. Jones, the farmer, had to go. He was literally kicked off the farm by the animals.
Since Jones and his family are gone, the animals have to make a new government. They call it, Animalism. Animalism has few rules, only seven, and they are written down on the barn wall by Snowball, one of the Rebellion leaders. They are called The Seven Commandments, and The Seven Commandments can't be changed or broken.

But, the commandments were hard to remember, so the sheep broke it down quite simply. They would bleat, "Four legs good, two legs bad!" Which was an oversimplification of the commandments, but it got the message across.
The dogs, Bluebell, Pincher and Jessie, have puppies. But, these puppies are taken away by Napoleon, the other Rebellion leader, to be taught. What they are taught is unknown, but they soon become forgotten by the animals.
Mr. Jones finally decides to fight back and take his land again. He brings some friends and they battle the animals for the land. In the end, the humans lose and retreat. The animals celebrate their victory.
