Johnny Tremain Literature Unit

By Esther Forbes

Johnny Tremain had a promising career as a silversmith. The family he worked for had all but put him in charge of their silversmith shop, even at Johnny’s young age. He was gifted and the clear “boss” in the shop. He even had several young men who worked for him. Tragically, while under pressure to make a special object for a valued customer, Johnny suffered a terrible loss. Johnny spilled hot silver on his hand. Not only did he suffer a terrible burn but, because he did not receive proper medical attention, his fingers set in an awkward position that made it entirely impossible for him to ever do any silversmith work again. Completely lost and frustrated, Johnny had to find a new life for himself. He became involved in politics after getting a job working for the resistance paper, The Observer. There he learned about the issues that led to the revolutionary war. Johnny finds ways to be useful to both The Observer as well as the war efforts. Johnny Tremain is an excellent historical novel to use in classes when students are learning about the events that led to the revolutionary war.
