Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|What was the name of the lieutenant who whacked Rab on the head with his sword for daring to touch British weapons?||Johnny Tremain quiz
Lieutenant Bragg. Rab was looking for a decent gun at this point in the book. He had the audacity to touch one of the British guns. The lieutenant who was guarding it broke off his conversation with the girls for long enough to whack him on the head with the flat of his sword, then kept on talking.
Gray. This is mentioned just before Johnny goes to John Hancock for a job.
|What card was Lavinia Lyte going to be at a masquerade (Isannah was going to be a two and hold her train) with British officers?||Johnny Tremain quiz
Queen of Spades. Cilla brought in Johnny to make Lavinia a scepter. Johnny was thrown out shortly thereafter, having tipped Isannah over (with hardly anything on) and insulted her.
Sukey. Sukey accidentally threw a bucket of dirty dish water onto Johnny, but Johnny counted ten and she apologized, dried his clothes, and gave him pie.
A ruby. Johnny entertained Isannah with stories about Merchant Lyte. This was one of them. He claimed that the cook mistook a ruby for a currant and put it in a fruitcake and that was why Lyte had a chipped front tooth.
Major Pitcairn . Major Pitcairn was an actual historical person like most of the people in this book. He also really said 'Disperse, ye rebels!'. The rebels did not disperse.
Afric Queen. This is where the British soldiers stay, and where Johnny glutted himself after receiving the money from John Hancock.
|After Cilla went to work for the Lytes and came to visit Johnny, how long did Rab take walking her home?||Johnny Tremain quiz
One hour, forty-seven minutes. Johnny was mad. Rab, who took one hour and forty-seven minutes to walk Cilla home, had been fed by the cook, and thought Cilla was a grand kid.
|How many shillings did the Observers 'owe' on the Sunday Sam Adams came with a paper for Rab to set?||Johnny Tremain quiz
Eight shillings. This meant that they would meet at the Observer that night at eight. Johnny made the rounds, even though it was a Sunday.
June 1st, 1774. King George, furious about the tea in Boston harbor, closed Boston's port. This was meant to cripple the city, because it relied on the port. It did, however, make the country furious, even Tories, and more people than ever talked Revolution. And the rest of the thirteen colonies helped Boston get through the next winter.
Eleven. 'Dusty Miller was eleven. It was easy for Johnny to say 'Look sharp, Dusty,' and little Dusty looked sharp.'
