    A Meeting with Fate
    I would be a Patriot. I would like to help found our country. Mabey if I was a patriot I could help stop some of the coruption of power some people have then and still today. I would go into the fight, but instead of having a war we could protest more.

    A Meeting with Fate
    I would stay and represent the patriots. I believe the British didn't do the right thing, and I want to help the Sons of Liberty. In the prologue Nat told his dad that he would try hard to be a master printer, so I chose to be an apprentice because I figured that's what Nat would've done.

    re: A Death in Boston: A Child Dies
    I think it was everyone's fault that the child died. The boys shouldn't have thrown rocks; they were making to big of a deal. The man was angry that his wife got hit with rocks so he started shooting. I think he was going a little overboard there. I feel that it was an accident. The boys probably didn't mean to hurt anyone, and the man was trying to protect himself and his wife. Finally, I think if a ninety year old man was killed it wouldn't be as sad because he had already lived a long time, and he would die soon anyway.

    New in Town
    I don't think its fair because the shoe maker may only be able to get imported shoes. The shoe maker is also probably just trying to make money without problems with the British.

    A Meeting with Fate
    I chose to be a Patriot because I wanted to fight for freedom from Britain. I also did this because I wanted to finish my apprenticeship. I would not want to leave for England because that's not what I believed in. I did not sail because I didn't want to run away from everything.
