    Snowball's windmill plans are fully worked out

  • Napoleon pees on the windmill plans

    Napoleon pees on the windmill plans
    Napoleon is completely against Snowball's idea of the windmill, and he had made it clear since the start. He even went to examine the plans on the floor of Snowball's study, but after he was finished he lifted his leg, urinated over the plans, and walked out without uttering a word.
  • The animals are divided in regards to the windmill

    The animals are divided in regards to the windmill
    The animals formed themselves into two factions under the slogan,
    ‘Vote for Snowball and the three-day week’ and ‘Vote for Napoleon and the full manger.’ Benjamin decided to remain neutral throughout all of this.
  • Snowball and Napoleon have a dispute regarding the defence of the farm

    Snowball and Napoleon have a dispute regarding the defence of the farm
    According to Napoleon, what the animals must do was to procure firearms and train themselves in the use of them.

  • Napoleon takes charge

    Napoleon takes charge
    Napoleon stands up where Old Major did to give his final speech, and announces new processes that will be happening on the farm.

  • Old Major's skull is moved

    Old Major's skull is moved
    The skull of old Major, now clean of flesh, had been

    Napoleon has an announcement
    From now onwards Animal Farm would engage in trade with the neighboring farms: not, of course, for any commercial purpose, but simply in order to obtain certain materials which were urgently necessary. This breaks the first commandment; whatever goes up on two legs is an enemy.
  • Mr. Whymper is introduced

    Mr. Whymper is introduced
    He was a sly-looking little man with side whiskers, a solicitor in a very small way of business, but sharp enough to have realized earlier than anyone else that Animal Farm would need a broker and that the commissions would be worth having. The animals did not like or trust Mr. Whymper, as he was a human. This breaks the first commandment; whatever goes up on two legs is an enemy.
  • The pigs move into the farmhouse

  • The windmill is knocked over

    The windmill is knocked over

  • The Battle of Cowshed is altered

    The Battle of Cowshed is altered
    It is now being said by Squealer that instead of Snowball being a hero in the Battle of Cowshed, he was actually a villain the whole time. Napoleon was the real hero of that battle, and the animals are confused, though Squealer still convinces them otherwise.
  • Napoleon's dogs attack Boxer

    Napoleon's dogs attack Boxer
    Boxer had previously been advocating for Snowball and how Snowball was the hero and was awarded a medal, but at a meeting four days after the last about the battle, three of Napoleon's dogs flung themselves at Boxer. It seems to have been purposeful, but the dogs are no match for Boxer's strength.
  • Executions

    Executions
    Suddenly, many animals start to come forward, saying that they have committed a crime but were influenced by Snowball. Napoleon executes every single animal that comes forward. This violates commandment 6; no animal shall kill any other animal.

  • Rumors about Frederick

    Rumors about Frederick
    It was said that Frederick was to bring against them twenty men all armed with guns, and he had already bribed the magistrates and police, so that if he could once get hold of the title deeds of Animal Farm they would ask no questions. Other rumors about him torturing, killing, and harming the animals of his farm in general came out.
  • The windmill is finished

    The windmill is finished
    The walls are thick and sturdy, and though the animals are nothing short of exhausted from all of their labor, they are proud of themselves and walk around the windmill to admire their hard work. All they needed were the sails and dynamos, and it would be perfect.
  • Napoleon has decided

    Napoleon has decided
    Napoleon announced that he had sold the pile of timber to Frederick. Frederick’s wagons would arrive and begin carting it away. Throughout the whole period of his seeming friendship with Pilkington, Napoleon had really been in secret agreement with
    Frederick and all of the previous rumors about Frederick and the tortures of his farm were dismissed.
  • The animals have been scammed

    The animals have been scammed
    The banknotes given to the animals by Frederick in exchange for the pile of timber were found to be fake. The animals are again worried about Frederick's possible attack, and so the pigeons are sent to begin to try and rekindle their relationship with Pilkington.
  • The windmill is blown up

    The windmill is blown up
    Frederick had come to attack Animal Farm, bringing 15 men with him. There were explosions and harmful pellets, and the animals could not take it, so they hid in farm buildings. The men approached the finished windmill and began to go at it with a crowbar and sledgehammer. Benjamin reveals that, as he expected, they are putting holes in the walls in order to place blasting powder inside and blow it up. Benjamin is right. The windmill is blown up, and virtually nothing salvageable is left behind.
  • Napoleon drinks whiskey

    Napoleon drinks whiskey
    The pigs come across a case of whiskey, and they begin to drink from it. In the morning, Napoleon is hungover. The pigs mistake this for illness, and they believe that their beloved leader is dying. Napoleon declares that the drinking of alcohol was to be punishable by death, though it was already prohibited in the commandments. Later, Napoleon is better.
  • Barley is to be grown

    Barley is to be grown
    Napoleon gave orders that the small paddock beyond the orchard, which it had previously been intended to set aside as a grazing ground for animals who were past work, was to be plowed up. It was given out that the pasture was exhausted and needed re-seeding, but it soon became known that Napoleon intended to sow it with barley.
  • Squealer falls

    Squealer falls
    Late in the night, a loud crash is heard in the yard. When all of the animals rush out to see what it is, they see Squealer sprawled out on the ground next to a ladder. Near him lay a lantern, a paintbrush, and an overturned pot of white paint.

  • Rules are changed

    Rules are changed
    Napoleon is teaching the new piglets, but keeping them isolated from the rest of the animals.They took their exercise in the garden, and were discouraged from playing with the other young animals. About this time, too, it was laid down as a rule that when a pig and
    any other animal met on the path, the other animal must stand aside: and also that all pigs, of whatever degree, were to have the privilege of wearing green ribbons on their tails on Sundays. This goes against two commandments; 3 & 7.
  • Spontaneous demonstration

    Spontaneous demonstration
    At the appointed time the animals would leave their work and march round the precincts of the farm in military formation, with the pigs leading, then the horses, then the cows, then the sheep, and then the poultry.

Boxer and Clover always carried between them a green banner marked with the hoof and the horn and the caption, ‘Long live Comrade Napoleon!’

    Animal Farm was proclaimed a Republic, and it became necessary
    to elect a President. There was only one candidate, Napoleon, who was elected unanimously.

    Moses returns
    Moses the raven suddenly reappeared on the farm, after an absence of several years. He was quite unchanged, still did no
    work, and talked in the same strain as ever about Sugarcandy Mountain. They all declared contemptuously that his stories about Sugarcandy Mountain were lies, and yet they allowed him to remain on the farm, not working, with an allowance of a gill of beer a day.

  • Boxer is sold to a glue factory

    Boxer is sold to a glue factory
    The pigs of Animal Farm, seeing as Boxer's strength has depleted and is therefore useless, decided to sell Boxer to a local glue factory. Boxer attempts to escape from the truck taking him away, but he is too weak and unsuccessful. Squealer lies to the animals and claims that the truck was owned by a hospital, and that his last words were; "Forward, comrades! Forward in the name of the Rebellion. Long live Animal Farm! Long live Comrade Napoleon! Napoleon is always right."
  • The pigs buy whiskey

  • The pigs walk on their hind legs

    The pigs walk on their hind legs
    The pigs each walk out of the farmhouse and across the yard, all on their hind legs. This is horrifying for all the other animals, and goes against the first commandment and rules that they had implemented in the very beginning of the revolution.
  • The commandments are altered

  • Humans visit the farm

    Humans visit the farm
    A number of dogcarts drove up to the farm. A deputation of neighboring farmers had been invited to make a tour of inspection. They were shown all over the farm, and expressed great admiration for everything they saw, especially the windmill.
  • There is no difference

    There is no difference
    The animals of the farm left their areas of labor when they heard loud noises from the farmhouse. Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No question, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.
