Plan of Investigation Why, and with what results, did Simón Bolívar play a role in the revolutionary movement of Venezuela in the early to mid-1800s? Venezuela, in the late 18th century and early 19th century, was an economic powerhouse as well as an intellectual hub for Latin America.

Daniel Morgan According to Russell Yost writer of the article “Daniel Morgan Facts, Biography, Accomplishment,” Daniel Morgan came from a poor education and a rough childhood to become an American hero. He rose through the ranks based on his ability and not his last name.

Daniel Morgan’s early life was quite full of interesting events. According to the article “Daniel Morgan” from The American Revolution.org, Daniel was mostly illiterate.
Courage, bravery, leadership, and dedication are only a few of the great attributes shown by King Leonidas of Ancient Sparta. Leonidas was King of Sparta for only a short amount of time, but in that time ensured himself a legacy that will never be forgotten. In Leonidas’ life he did many things but, the most diligent and respected action was the stand he took at the Battle of Thermopylae along with 300 other warriors.

After a year's imprisonment, he traveled to Mexico where he formed a revolutionary group, the 26th of July Movement, with his brother Raúl Castro and Che Guevara. Returning to Cuba, Castro took a key role in the Cuban Revolution by leading the Movement in a guerrilla war against Batista's forces from the Sierra Maestra.

He believed that individuals can overcome any obstacle they desire if they have a strong will to do so and that revolution is the important mission worth pursuing.
In my opinion originality really stood out in his music especially in Redemption Song. How his voice resonates so clearly, how the song progresses and how he was able apply such bombastic words in to the song. It is a shame that Marley passed away without ever being able to see the success of the song as Redemption Song has seen a lot of glory in recent years. In July 2003 the Redemption Song statue was unveiled in Emancipation Park, New Kingston with the words “ None But Ourselves Can Free Our Minds” on the base of the dome. In 2004 Rolling Stone placed the song at #66 among the “Top 500 Greatest Songs All Time”.
The best president was Theodore Roosevelt. The four qualifications that justify this are: military experience, effective communication skills, large support for environmental conservation, and his ability to accomplish major goals and legislation from the beginning to the end of his presidency. Roosevelt was not a perfect president, but for being the youngest president at the time, he served in many political and military positions that made him a brilliant leader and one of the best U.S. presidents. A president who has former military experience provides valuable insight to strategy and diplomacy. Being a highly decorated war hero and former Assistant Secretary to the Navy made Roosevelt a prime choice for a president with military experience.
When we had our first black president in America history, something that people only decades ago would have laughed at the idea of, the world changed. When Obama was elected president, it was a huge turning point in history: "The victory was heralded as the arrival of a “post-racial” America, one in which the nation’s original sin of racial slavery and post-Reconstruction Jim Crow discrimination had finally been absolved by the election of a black man as commander in chief," (Joseph). I only lived when the world changed, because I practically grew up knowing Obama as our president. Obama was inspiring, not only for black Americans, but for all other races as well. Racism was something I never knew about until the third grade and I thought it was absolutely ridiculous that people could hate another person simply for their race.
Former President and founding leader of the Peoples National Congress (PNC) Party Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham for two decades shaped Guyana’s Foreign Policy destiny after Guyana gained independence from Britain in 1966.
