“They dashed straight for snowball, who only sprang from his place just in time to escape their snapping jaws” This shows that even before the windmill had come into play napoleon had reared these puppies to be aggressive dogs and to get rid of snowball. Next the pigs begin to abuse there power and break the commandments. This starts to happen as soon as napoleon takes place as leader of Animal Farm. “Whatever goes upon two legs an enemy” This is
In Squealer’s version of Snowball’s part of the battle, Snowball was planning to “leave the field to the enemy” (p54). Afterwards, Squealer described how Napoleon was the one who “sprang forward with a cry of ‘death to humanity!’ and sank his teeth into Mr Jone’s leg” when everything was so chaotic (p54). During his speech, Squealer describe everything in so much detail that it “seemed to the animals that they did remember it” (p54). As a result, Squealer has used propaganda to manipulate the memories of the animals so they would believe that Napoleon is the rightful person to trust and Snowball was actually on the side of the enemy. Another form of propaganda was when the pigs started to twist the seven commandments, a list of seven rules the animals in animal farm must follow, to their own needs.
The rebellion itself is led by two pigs, Napoleon and Snowball who are inspired by Old Major, the old pig. However, because Napoleon does not like Snowball, he makes a plan to put Snowball away from the farm. According to Orwell, this story has a reflection of Russian Revolution of 1917. Some of the characters in the story are believed to be a representatives of certain famous or infamous people. Moreover, this story has been adapted to be a movie.
This was all while the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. The animals, unhappy with their day-to-day living conditions, rise and revolt against the tyrant, drunk farm owner, Mr. Jones. Orwell uses actual historical events to construct Animal Farm, but rearranges them to fit his plot. Manor Farm is Russia, Mr. Jones the czar, the pigs the Bolsheviks who led the revolution. The humans represent the ruling class, the animals, the workers, and the peasants.
This is what happened in Russia in the early 1900’s. This is what happened in Animal Farm by George Orwell. John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton said it best, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” In Animal Farm, the animals, representing Russia’s people, were upset with the management of the farm. They were eating only enough to stay alive, so they finally had a breakthrough and Rebelled against the humans on the farm, representing the Royal Family in Russia. When the pigs came into power they had seven commandments by which all of the animals need to live.
This is achieved by corresponding events in the novel to the actual events in Russian history. During the Russian revolution, Russian leader Joseph Stalin used secret police to ‘get rid’ of anyone who threatened his power. This is in fact also what happened to Stalin’s main rival, Leon Trotsky. The actions that took place are portrayed similarly in “Animal Farm,” as Napoleon used his dogs to chase Snowball from the farm. In this case, Napoleon’s guard dogs represent Stalin's secret police.

Raccoon Fireball The myth about a man launching himself out of a drainage pipe in order to kill a raccoon is false because a man cannot fit comfortably in a drainage pipe, the power from the gasoline in the pipe would dissolve not shoot him two hundred feet in the air, drainage pipes are open on both ends, which mean, the explosion would go out both ends, cutting the force in half and being that close to a big explosion like that would cause more than a few minor injuries. In Carbon County, Pennsylvania, there was a group of men getting drunk and shooting off firearms on the backyard patio of Irving Michaels, who was twenty seven. The men saw a raccoon across the yard and decided to use it as target practice. Apparently, the alcohol blurred their vision and made them have terrible aim. Even after the group shot about thirty five shots, the raccoon escaped into a drainage pipe approximately one hundred feet away from the patio.
In this battle Frederick attacks Animal Farms windmill which breaks their treaty. This is like when the USSR and Germany’s pact was broken. Napoleon acts likes Stalin and fights back with the animals (Red Army) to push back Frederick (Hitler) and his men (Nazi’s). That is a second way Orwell
