Johnny Tremain takes place in pre-Revolutionary Boston. Johnny Tremain is boy who is
proud—too proud. His pride made him overconfident. He pretty much

planned all of his life while he was young; he would be a silversmith and marry Cilla. His
mother dies when he is fourteen years old. Before his mother died, he

was apprenticed to a silversmith named Mr. Lapham. When his mother died, she gave him a
silver cup that showed that he was a member of the Lyte family. The

cup signifies that he is related to the famous merchant Lyte who was very rich. One

"Sabbath" and cast a silver pitcher. Dove, who is very unintelligent and jealous of Johnny
gave him a cracked crucible and it spilled all over the stove top and Johnny went to get
it but it burned his hand. Mr. Lapham sent out for a midwife to come and fix his hand
because they didn’t want

to get caught working on the Sabbath by a doctor. She wrapped it up together and it
crippled and stuck together which meant he couldn't work as a silversmith
