Long Answer

1. The novel ends with Adam’s return home and his uncertainty about whether he will return to war. The author may have chosen to conclude this way to show the maturation of Adam, who now has a better understanding of war and its consequences, and to draw attention to his new personal responsibilities, like taking care of his family and completing his father’s chores. (Various chapters)

2. The Lexington community is important in the novel because they offer support to one another and their colonial community. For example, people in the community offer support for Adam after his father’s death. More important, perhaps, is the community’s willingness to come together and fight for their land when they are invaded by British troops. (Various chapters)
