In 1781, he forced the surrender of Cornwallis with the help of French allies. Later, George had thoughts of retiring, but then soon realized the Articles of confederation wasn’t operating well, so he became a big part in the steps of leading to the Constitutional Convention. When the Constitution was confirmed, George was unanimously elected as the first ever President of the United States of America (“George
In an attempt to heal his wounded pride, Aaron Burr challenged Hamilton to a duel, and the discredited Alexander Hamilton died the day after. (Foner). However, it is believed that Hamilton intentionally misdirected his shot, showing that he may have recognized his flaw in the end, redeeming himself in the eyes
HISTORY ASSESSMENT TASK 1 - INVESTIGATING THE PAST CHOSEN INDIVIDUAL: Alexander Hamilton Alexander Hamilton was an incredibly intelligent and significant individual in America’s, and the world’s, history. Hamilton was one of America’s Founding Fathers and also features on the American ten dollar note. Alexander Hamilton became a Lieutenant Colonel and George Washington’s aide-de-camp in the Revolutionary War and helped lead America to victory.

His repetitive questions engage his audience with his words, forcing them to recall each failed attempt at peace. He says they "have held the subject in every light... but it has been all in vain." To further prolong the colonists' failed methods, Henry uses an anaphora that lists each failure and blatantly shows the obviousness of the situation and the desperation that should be felt. He stress how "there is no longer room for hope" which brings together the claim Henry makes that many want to stay away from: to fight. "We must fight!"
Perhaps if Adams decided to go to war the history of the United States would have been very different. Adams is also remembered for his opinions on Republicanism, which introduced Republican ideas to the American government. However Adams is negatively remembered as a vain, eccentric, and stubborn man, and most of his cabinet and Congress believed he was unfit for president. This was evident when he lost his attempt at re-election to Thomas Jefferson and become the first president of the United States to serve 1 term. Despite these opinions Adams had a significant impact on American history and the formation of the United States into what it is
In 1815, the Congress of Vienna was signed but the old order in Europe was not fully restored. This is to explain why I came to this conclusion. Until 1789, all countries in the continent of Europe, with an exception of England, were ruled under absolute monarchy. In the French Revolution, Louis XVI was overthrown and killed by the revolutionaries on the guillotine and France became a republic until Napoleon Bonaparte rose to power.

Horatio started to notice Mac's lack of emotion for the death as well as the fact that Banks, Mac's cousin, had just lost his chance of going to college.

The words in this ultimately caused Burr to lose the election for governor of New York. After Burr brought up the allegations against Hamilton for this, he demanded that Hamilton apologize, which he did and also promised that he would stop, but he continued his campaign to back-stab Burr.

The rising tensions between the colonies and Britain created a desire for colonists’ independance. The revolution can be described as “...a political upheaval”(1), taking place between 1775 and 1783.

President James Madison, formerly Secretary of State, was a member of the Democratic - Republican Party and was given the label ‘father of the United States Constitution’ by some. In addition to this he was essential in the framing of the Virginian constitution and a leader in the Virginian Assembly. He’s responsible, even if just partly, for some well-known documents we remember in the present day, and was supportive of a protective tariff in addition to the creation of a national bank in the years of his retirement. There’s so much more to this founding father than meets the eye, and delving deeper into his history can unveil some surprising facts. Regardless of his involvement in the creation of the Constitution, James Madison was not one of the
