5. Reading Journal

5.1. Journal #2

5.1.1. Some of the events that made Creighton change is the death of Benjamin Franklin. He enjoyed the company of him and he was very nice and trusting towards Creighton. Also he starts to make friends with Peter and Sophie. When Colonel Gower left him in New Orleans he also changed his opinion about Colonel Gower. Being around the Patriots changed his opinion about the British, they did many bad things to their people which is not so easily forgotten or forgiven. The plan that General Arnold came up with is to let Creighton become "free" so they can look for General Washington and bring him back to New Orleans. The plans goes with Creighton supposedly escaping from the Yankees with General Arnold and Peter being the ones who aided him in his escape. Also Creighton would have to feed the Brits Anti-Information because he will be the only one who they might believe. Peter has to give the Pedro O'Rielly a Patriot sympathizer the real plans of the Patriots.

5.2. Journal #1:

5.2.1. I feel that the job (Bound Boy) is demeaning and embarrassing. I scream that I can’t do it anymore Colonel Gower. When I came up to the top deck I see the Amity crew being unshackled and giving up their British citizenship to be part of the Patriots. I don’t believe that they are traitors to the British now. I also found new understanding of the things around him. There are people who are being hanged because they are traitors. There are people who wants to rebel against the British because of their actions. I felt anxious to be going to into New Orleans (Spanish territory). What is going to happen? I tried to be a bound boy and a spy as best as he can. Creighton looks at the crew of the Revenge and thought Captain Pierce finally had a chance of getting revenge on the Revenge. The Privateers also were kind enough give Captain Pierce a proper funeral. It looks like the Patriots were kind but were aggressive.

6. Final Predicitons

6.1. They are going to find a way to get Harry Brown out of prison.

6.2. Harry Brown might know where Washington is at and will lead to a rebel victory.

6.3. Creighton will find Washington and will raise a war with the Patriots against England.

7. Reasons why Creighton was a hero: Creighton was a hero towards the Patriots. There was this one time when he wanted to save Ben. Franklin and save the types while your at it. He was very loyal to Benjamin and wouldn't betray him. Then when you can tell he was a hero by putting his life in danger multiple times. When he was going to find General Washington and save his father. Also Creighton would take risks that proves his loyalty and bravery. Back when he was with Colonel Gower in the Fort trying to find Washington he swallowed the real plans and made a new plan and gave it to Gower. Finally he was praised for all of the things he has done. By the patriots on several different occasions. In my opinion he is a hero.
