Adams supports revolution partially because of a desire for revenge; Otis wants a revolution because it will give the colonists the chance t stand up for themselves,“a man can stand up.” Johnny at first supports Adams, as he desires revenge rather than forgiveness. Later, Johnny is moved by Otis' desire to fight for the rights of his fellow man.
