I find both Johnny and Rab to be heroic figures. They're young, idealistic, and unafraid to help a common cause during the Revolutionary War. Rab becomes Johnny's role-model, and although Johnny sometimes waivers in his beliefs and actions.... Rab does not. Both boys put themselves in danger, but Rab, the more careful of the two, teaches Johnny patience and urges him to control his compulsiveness. They each take part in the Boston Tea-Party, spy, and participate in activities to promote the victory of the revolutionaries. Rab fights with the revolutionaries, and Johnny plays a huge part because of his abiility to get and deliver information about the upcoming assault on Charlestown to Paul Revere.
