Paine then challenges the men’s bravery and patriotism to their country by stating the line “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country.” This statement successfully peaks the men 's interest in the passage, and takes a jab at the readers manliness and willingness to protect his own country in time of need. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.” This line, similar to the first line, is stating that this evil that was the British government is not going to be an easy opponent to defeat. This also puts the readers in a position of readying themselves, similar
Often times, in acting on serious matters, *the people involved need to be assured that the solution they are pursuing is best. Without reassurance, people may lose sight of their purpose. * *Thomas Paine wrote several pieces providing such encouragement for Patriots in the American Revolution . “Crisis No. 1” was a piece that he wrote directed at *American soldiers in attempts *to use rhetorical analysis to keep their hearts in the ongoing battle with Great Britain.
Pathos promotes either a positive or negative emotion or feeling, and in this case, Henry used pathos to evoke negative emotions. His audience could feel a sense of betrayal when he said that the colonists' petition had been received with "that insidious smile." Insidious means treacherous and crafty, and that's what Henry wanted the British to seem like in his speech. He was trying to show the citizens at the convention that Parliament was deceiving them into believing that they would accept the petitions in a positive manner, while he knew that the British were really just trying to keep the colonists under their rule. This angered his audience, and made them resent and fear the British when they realized how much power they had over
“It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to god and our country” (Henry) during the time the speech was written, the colonist were trying to be separate from Britain. People wanted out of British laws, but had fear of fighting war. The colonist struggled with no money for an army nor the support to create one. In Patrick Henry’s, “Speech to Virginia convention ” he primarily used pathos to persuade the audience to stand up and fight. It was important to persuade the colonist so when Great Britain attacked they were ready to fight back.
George Washington also acknowledge that he made mistakes himself and is far from a perfect individual but made clear to be open minded of criticism and corrections and to seek challenges by taking the easy routes in life. Washington’s Farewell Address is important part of our history and is taught up till this day to young American children in our schools and by Historians but few people understand the meaning and the importance behind the Farewell Letter. The Farewell Address the federal government, warnings against the party systems, the importance of religion and morality, warnings against forming a permanent foreign alliance, and a powerful military. George Washington has an overwhelming reputation by his military service, his position as our first president of the United States of America, and by leaving his position in office by leaving behind his Farewell Address to give present and future Americans insight on the history of our country and what it’s known for. It’s well encouraged to research what American history is about and how we can apply the Farewell Address into our life by living in peace, exercising our freedom of speech and choice or religions, along with respecting our governments and live in unity to achieve success.
The speaker presents his claim as an opinion of the colonies, which convinces the delegates that they must fight for their freedom and rights. He also shows the relevancy of his assertion through the lack of peace between the two opposing governments. The hostility between the nations is a result of the colonies attempting to create peace but failing due to being disrespected by the British. The speaker believes that the audience should fight for their freedom and defends his argument by repeatedly unifying them as a group. In conclusion, Patrick Henry conveys his opinions on what the colonists must do in order to gain freedom to the Virginia Convention through the rhetorical devices of allusion and repetition.
Henry states that the other men of the convention have different views than his but it would be "treason" if he did not speak his proposition. He continues, saying it is the colonists' duty to follow his call to action. He then infers since he is "guided... [by] the lamp of experience" the others should trust his views. Next he builds up the emotion in the room by using imagery and allusions to call to mind the Britain's recent actions. Henry remarks that the colonists' false hopes in the British "will prove a snare to [their] feet."
¨History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.¨ This is a quote said by Winston Churchill who had definitely lived up his saying. Winston Churchill was thought by many that his war tactics were bad, that his views on certain situations were wrong, and that by giving his speeches were a sign of weakness. However, Winston Churchill had won World War II as prime minister, and had become a widely known politician for Britain. As well as his speeches were thought by many to be some of the best speeches ever written. Winston Churchill should get more praise for what he is doing, because he was an outstanding politician, wrote incredible speeches, and became prime minister for Britain and Won World war II.
Both men identified what they believed the present danger to colonists and their efforts of resistance. Sherwood seeks to warn his listeners about the dangers of a tyrannical government. He is quick to identify that ruling justly is possible, but he calls on the congregation to restore the fear of God into their superiors. Boucher takes on a different tone, condoning senseless violence by comparing it to the Old Testament story of David and his son Absalom. Knowing the story, the colonists recognize his warning to be against retaliation, as Absalom dies despite David’s desire for him to live.
