Roger and Bree know the Revolutionary War has started in Outlander Book 6, Chapter 77
We all knew the Revolutionary War was coming. It’s started in Outlander Book 6, Chapter 77.
We spend time with Brianna and Roger in this chapter. Roger wakes up to find Bree already awake in the middle of the night. What caused it? Roger doesn’t know why he woke, but it’s clear why Brianna is. She knows that the day before marked the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
It’s all about the midnight ride of Paul Revere. It’s something Brianna grew up learning about. She and all the other kids in Boston grew up learning the poem. It is a huge thing for the Boston area, which is where the midnight ride took place. It’s not surprising that this sort of thing would keep her up.
The chapter really just foreshadows the fact that the Revolutionary War has started. It will eventually reach the colonies to the south. This is going to lead to people fleeing from their homes, and others picking the side of those who would have been traitors had they lost.
We haven’t had this chapter used in the series. I doubt we will, to be honest. The Boston Tea Party was written about, and that was used as the marker of the start of the war. I’ll get to my thoughts on that in the adaptation section.
Let’s dive into A Breath of Snow and Ashes Chapter 77.
