Can I have a basic rundown of chapter 10 of "Animal Farm"? I lost my book and I might get quizzed on it! Anything's useful.

Time has passed in chapter ten.  Not many of the animals from the beginning of the revolution are still around and a new generation is now living on the farm. They don’t remember all the rules of animalism.  The farm has two windmills and the farm is very successful, but the animals are no better off now than they were under farmer Jones.  The power is with the Pigs and the dogs.  Then Clover neighs an alarm because Squealer is observed walking on two legs carrying a whip.  A group of other pigs follow him the same way.  The pigs have changed the original commandments and have replaced them with one slogan, “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”  The sheep were taken away for training and when they return they go around the farm saying, “four legs good, two legs better.” 

Benjamin is one of the few animals left who remembers and he is upset because he had said years ago that this would happen.  Later in the evening the farmhouse lights are blazing and the animals approach the house and look into the windows.  Inside the house are Napoleon, Pilkington and others having a big party and celebrating.  Napoleon and his friends get rid of the name Animal Farm.  They decide to play cards, but when the pigs and the men begin to cheat, they all start arguing.  The animals looking in the window,  “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.”
