    Moses was Geogre washinton’s slave. They were friends and they did friend stuff together. Then Georges father died and now they were not friends anymore. Now George acted bossy and made Moses do his work. Moses did not like it.
    When he was 14 he wanted to go to the nabe to be like his older brother Lawrence. George mother Mary Ball Washington did not want him to go, she said no. You have to be 21 you have to stay on the farm and help me.

    The story began with george and moses the slave fishing at the lake. When Lawrence came back from the military with a suite then george said “” I want to wear a suite just like my older brother Lawrence”. When george was 11 years old his father died. Thats when george and Moses’s friendship changed. When george’s farther died Mary Ball Washington took charge. Now George who wanted to be just like Lawrence by being in the miliatary wanted to join the Navy. George’s mom said you are not going into MIlitary!!!! And George’s mom won that war. George still wanted to go anyway

    This starts when George and Moses are kids and they were friends. But they stop being friends after George’s father died when he was eleven/11 . Moses became George’s slave. He had to do whatever George said. George’s brother Lawrence went to northern Virginia to try to get George in the British navy. When George was fourteen he wanted to go to the Navy but his mean Mother Mary Ball Washington wouldn’t let him go. They argued, but George’s mother won. That did not stop George; talk about “persistent”.

    In chapter 2 when George was 11 his father passed away. George and Moses were friends
    moses was taking George fishing. When George father passed away he was treating moses like a slave. When George met his brother Lawrence who is 14 years older than George he wanted to join the military too. George told his mother mary ball washington she told him no. So his mother refused to let him go at all so he did not go until he was 21.

  12. In Chapter 2 of Against All Odds, Moses shows a flashback of when he and George Washington were friends fishing. But a few years later, they changed and George was now Massa George and Moses was his slave. Later George wanted to be a solider because his father Lawrence was one. But his tough mother Mary Ball disagreed.

    What i first knew about chapter two is that george and moses were friends. After his father died, he wanted to take over the slavery. When he met his mother, mary ball washington, george told his mother that he was joining the military. His mother told him not to. He never went to the military until he was 21.

    In Chapter two George’s Father died and Moses and George relationship changes. The relationship went from being friends to that of Master and slave. Lawrence George’s older brother arranged for George to join the navy. George’s mother stopped him.
    George looked up to Lawrence like a second father.
