David saw himself, as Dorothy Johnson pointed out in her book, Jacques Louis David: Art of Metamorphosis, “as a pictorial historian responsible to posterity for representing the Revolution (72).” By becoming a pseudo minister of propaganda, David was able to manipulate truth in order to represent Marat as virtuous, while defaming Corday as a deceitful anti-republican who disregarded society’s standards. The blurred gender role of Corday instilled fear within republican men—and the brainwashed women—to eventually disallow women to participate within the New Republic other than as submissive mothers/wives. This is turn creates what I believe to be a hypocrisy within the ideologies (liberty, equality, and fraternity) which the French Revolution fought to achieve. By excluding Corday from Marat, David foreshowed condemnation and fear towards intellectual independent women. Although she did assassinate a public figure, the punishment to all women clubs were overzealous and truly unjustified, as well as David’s blatant erasure of Corday from the
The leaders of the political parties at that time were Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton. The acts were passed after the XYZ affair. At this time, many federalists wanted the President, John Adams, to declare war on France. Adams refused, but started the building of an army and enforced a land tax to pay for it. This caused what Republican party leader Thomas Jefferson called a “War Fever”.
McKinley gave into the public pressure, on April 11, 1898 he asked the congress to declare war on Spain so the congress did so,It made them want to go to war. The first war was not fought in Cuba, After the USS Maine blew up Roosevelt saw the prospect of the war growing.envintaly he war shifted to Cuba which got Spain involved with the war the effects caused One of the best units was the Rough Riders that was lead by Roosevelt, he had given up his navy post to join the war, Roosevelt helped lead his men in a successful charge up San Juan Hill, that became the most celebrated event of the war, but The 24,000 Spanish Soldiers at Santiago surrendered two weeks later after being trapped by the U.S..After all these events had helped to lead up to the war it all did come to an
Nevertheless, the United States declared war on Spain, thinking that the destruction of the U.S.S. Maine was caused by Spain. Although President McKinley used this incident as a reason for intervening in the conflict between Spain and its colonies, many Congressmen felt the United States had a more important reason for invading. Senator Henry Teller stated that he believed the United States should go to war with the Spanish to assist in Cuba’s revolution from Spain.2 The Monroe Doctrine clearly stated that the United States, as part of its policy for isolationism, would not interfere with any European colonies already established,3 and since the United States was interfering with Cuba, one of Spain’s colonies, the United States was breaking the Monroe Doctrine. It could be argued that since Congressmen assumed that the Spanish had already attacked the United States first,4 the war was justifiable.
British policies established in 1763-1776 greatly affected the colonists and pushed them towards developing their own republican values. All of the acts and taxes the British issued and how overly controlling the British were over the colonists was the starting point, also the increasing rebellions encouraged the colonists to break away from Britain’s rule, and finally the wars that resulted and seizing authority from the British was the final turning point for the colonists in eliminating Britain’s heavy-handed ruling over the colonists. The acts, and taxes that came with most of the acts, that the English imposed on the colonists was a substantial reason the colonists opposed British rule. After the French and Indian war the British found
Montag broke the law multiple times and tried to change society and made people afraid. He was also justified in taking montages earpiece so he could track down faber so they could stop illegal activities. This relates to mccarthyism because the us government did these same things to stop the spread of communism. The us was full of spies that leaked information and it makes sense why Beatty would want to stop Faber. Historians at the history channel state that the government use the hollywood ten as a example of communism spreading in America.
For example, Machiavelli would see the Revolution more than likely repulsive. He did not believe in caring for the people and he took brutal actions to prove so. His experience in violent politics influenced his idea on how government should be, and he believed the correct form of government was absolute monarchy. The American Revolution showed a revolt against the leader, a government made for the people, and a shared rule of power between branches. All of these things would most likely make Machiavelli outraged and cause him to be extremely upset with the outcome of the American Revolution.
After World War I, America had come across some terror attacks which contributed to the Red Scare and also prompted A. Mitchell Palmer to initiate a campaign that “...targeted men and women who harbored ideas that Palmer believed could lead to violence, even though the individuals may not have done anything illegal.”(Roark, Pg.738). In his campaign he was determined to find and convict radical immigrants who held “revolutionary conspiracies”(Roark, Pg.738), in order to enforce the American way of life. In Palmer’s eyes, in order to prevent crime in America “...there could be no nice distinctions drawn between the theoretical ideals of the radicals and their actual violations of our national laws.”(Doc.17, Pg.66), which resulted in the “...500 noncitizen suspects deported.”(Roark, Pg.738). A.Mitchell Palmer’s significance was that he was responsible for being a great contributor in the anti-radical revolution within in America which was responsible for many deportations of immigrants after the Great War. (Roark, Pg.738; Doc.#17,
The freedom of the Gilded Age was further curbed with the start of World War I. When America set its foot into the war, many Americans did not want to sign up for the war. This led to Espionage Act which demanded a silent submission to the government. By the end of the war, even patriots started seeing the socialist agendas as their torchbearers to freedom. The government had to use other means to stop it.
This inspired colonists to want to break away from Britain and become their own country. However as the war progressed it became a civil war because colonists divided between loyalists and patriots and fought almost themselves. This was the result of colonists disagreeing on the decision to cut ties with Britain, since many colonists thrived off of economic ties to them. As the war ended it became an ideological revolution. Colonists inspired by Enlightenment thinkers fought for these ideas and by the end of the war they were focused on forming a new government.
