Character Role Analysis

Tim Meeker

Tim is our main man in this book. For starters, he's the one telling the story, so right off the bat we know he's important. But the story he tells also revolves around his changing feelings surrounding the Revolutionary War. So when Tim has a thought about the war, we get to hear it. And when he changes his mind (and, let's be honest, he does that a lot), we get to hear that, too.
