Plot (animal farm)
The three pigs take charge to reach old major's dream of equality for the farm.
The animals have meetings, and at the last of one of these meetings there was a vote of whether or not there should be a windmill built.
They defeat Mr. Jones and kick him out of the farm, along with his men.
Napoleon makes a funny noise at the meeting and then the puppies come and chase Snowball from the farm.
Old major dies after he teaches the animals a song called "Beasts of England," and squealer, napoleon and snowball.
Napoleon didn't agree with the windmill idea, but once he runs snowball off he changes his mind and all the animals devote themselves to completing it.
During a storm, the windmill falls over and Napoleon makes an accusation that Snowball did it to get revenge.
Squealer is a propagandist and makes everyone believe that Napoleon is a great leader and is making things better. The animals are not doing better, they are cold, hungry, and in my opinion, overworked.
A neighboring farmer blew up the windmill and it injures Boxer. Boxer ends up not being anywhere to be found after and Squealer tells the fellow animals that he died on his way to the hospital praising the Rebellion with his last breath. In all reality, Boxer was sold to a glue company so Napoleon could buy whiskey.
