Battles of Lexington and Concord/Concave?[edit]

I haven't read the book, but there is a battle of Concord linked to Lexington, and I can find no google reference to a battle of concave. So I'm assuming it's a typo and fixing.Aaronchall (talk) 05:09, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

Under what circumstances can this "Cleanup" tag be removed? The article has been almost completely rewritten since it was posted. Bigturtle 23:16, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

After 2 weeks passed with no further comment, I removed the "Cleanup" tag Bigturtle 00:04, 9 April 2006 (UTC)

I think we are going to need some more cleanup here. This is a good book that is read by a lot of people; some of them want to post their book reports; as a result, there is a lot of redundancy. Bigturtle 00:33, 30 January 2007 (UTC)

Thanks to co-editors for cleanup work. Bigturtle 22:14, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

What the crud?[edit]

I dunno what's going on with this article, but I reverted it back to its most normal form (if anyone wants to change it back, check out proper wikipedia formating at wikipedia:help first.) It was somewhat decent, with several sections and all, but then suddenly there was one giant, unorganized section, about eight summaries going at once. then the infobox disappeared and suddenly it was a book report. Whacky! ---Caesar

Fixed (I hope). --Micahbrwn 15:21, 29 January 2007 (UTC)


This article could be good but there is absolutely no in-depth to the article. Other books have individual pages for almost every character, but this entire thing is under a page long.Eddisford 21:24, 23 April 2007 (UTC)

Pages[edit]

Should it be added that the book we're reading in school has 269 pages instead of 288? There's different editions.

Is there really any need to list the number of pages at all? Karuseikaarie (talk) 02:00, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

I have the book with me now, 269. 76.26.73.193 (talk) 11:39, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Well, the info box on the article states the number of pages (288), so I guess that one could and should change the number of pages. But, first, which edition do you have? It's possible that different editions might have different sized fonts. Montgomery' 39 (talk) 21:07, 5 January 2009 (UTC)
By the way, the edition I'm reading in school has 322 pages. So maybe someone should remove the info about the page numbers. Montgomery' 39 (talk) 16:12, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Obesity[edit]

What's with the "very very very fat?" I don't recall Johnny being fat. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ryanmalik01 (talkcontribs) 00:20, 19 February 2009 (UTC)


It was "Dove" the not very smart apprentice and soon to be loyalist being called fat--not Johnny! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.83.126.88 (talk) 02:09, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Information[edit]

Johnny Tremain was the same age as Cilla and he had to marry her when he was older and so he liked her even if he wasn't going to marry her. When he left the house Cilla would but some food in his cup. He ran away because he brought some good presents and when Isannah got her present and hugged Johnny for the present she yelled ' LET ME GO JOHNNY I HATE YOUR HAND!!!" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.151.56.193 (talk) 02:39, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

Johnny Appleseed[edit]

The following line was stricken from the article.

"By the way, Johnny likes apples and always ate the seeds, hence the myth of "Johnny Appleseed" was born."

I could not find a previous version when this change was added, but the legend of Johnny Appleseed existed long before this book was written. The two stories appear to have nothing in common.
