Declaration of Independence Precis Thomas Jefferson in his historical document, The Declaration of Independence (1776), asserts that the colonies should break free from Britain’s tyranny. Jefferson supports his assertion through the use of anaphora, parallel structure, imagery, emotional appeal to patriotism, and logical appeal to the colonist’s basic rights. Jefferson’s purpose is to advocate for the separation of Britain and the colonies in order to escape the British tyranny that King George imposes on the American colonists. Jefferson writes in a measured tone for the British parliament, King George, and for colonists who have been a victim of Britain’s oppression.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson is able to reason in order to clearly communicate the colonies’ grievances and the need to segregate from the overly controlling and demanding grip of King George III. Jefferson is able to appropriately use logos by explicitly stating the people of the colonies’ rationales for severing their connections to Great Britain. He elaborates on his complaints and requests by using logos in order to declare and represent the people’s interpretation of their rights, what they should be, and why they deserve them. He articulates that the King has neglected and deprived the people of the colonies from their god given rights as people.
It is less controversial removing the lines about God “a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed” and emphasis our roles as citizens; “I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies. ”(Source B) And if people feel strongly about the racist and xenophobic origins that the Pledge was written in the context of, they can vote against it (Source D and F). As one author claims, “The pledge reveals the central, humiliating lie of American life – this country has not earned its loyalty, not from everyone, and thus demands it.” I agree that blind recitation is bad, but the Pledge reminds many people who we
’s Thesis was centered around the idea that Lincoln viewed emancipation as “a goal to be achieved through prudential means, so that worthwhile consequences might result.” He argued that every gradual step Lincoln took towards the abolition of slavery was done to “balance the integrity of ends with the integrity of means,” to accomplish this while still placing the constitution above all of his personal opinions. Guelzo then presented and answered four questions that he believed arose as a result of his prudence argument; why is the language of the Proclamation bland, did the Proclamation actually do anything, did the slaves free themselves, and finally did Lincoln issue the Proclamation to only to prevent European intervention or inflate Union morale? In response to the first, Guelzo makes the point that the Proclamation was a legal document, and that “every syllable was liable to… legal
Abraham Lincoln made his speech persuasive by using a lot of figurative language like repetition, and by using a lot of pathos styled techniques. One of the ways he made his speech persuasive to people is by using repetition. “We CANNOT” is the main one example that president Abraham Lincoln used. He used this quote to really emphasize the thing we cannot do to make this country great and to make sure all people, no matter the color nor the race, shall always be free.
Due to his many experiences while living in Great Britain, he grew a desire to fight for the oppressed and often questioned the authority the British Monarchy had over the American colony. Thomas Paine wrote an influential Pamphlet “Common Sense” a scathing attack on the monarchial tyranny over the American colony and the significance of American independence. Thomas Paine’s ideas in this pamphlet were not original, however were more accessible to the masses due to the clear and direct way he wrote. His pamphlet helped to inspire The Declaration of Independence written by Thomas Jefferson. The Declaration of Independence contains a list of grievances against King George III and justifications for the assertion of the right for independence.
The initiation document of the Ku Klux Clan is confronting in numerous aspects of their beliefs and perspectives on society. Furthermore, it can be examined to build a greater understanding of the American culture in the 19th century. It can be observed throughout the initiation, that the members absolutely view the Caucasian race as a superior social and political race. Progressing into their beliefs that throughout history Caucasians have held more power and will continue to hold autocracy. A strict rudiment of the Ku Klux Clan was to not cohabit with the supposed lesser races to make sure the white blood was preserved.
He did not want the issue of slavery to become more important than the rights granted in the constitution. Lincoln tiredly tried to preserve the union, while upholding the constitution and used Machiavelli principles to do so. Danoff
The institution of slavery was a major cause for the Civil War, since “free states” and Slave states” were vying for land and voting rights in Congress in the new territories in the west that were recently acquired by the United States. The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 was meant to evenly divided free states and slaves states in the hopes that either side would be satiated, and the two sides could reach a compromise on this issue. However, free states politicians, such as Senator Lincoln, defined the underlying basis of perpetual conflict in the speech “A House Divided”, which would set the tone for a larger military conflict between the North and the South. More so, Lincoln’s presidency shows a massive increase in presidential powers, which allowed Lincoln to unconstitutionally declare war against the Confederacy for seceding from the Union. In addition to this military power, Lincoln also suspended the writ of habeas corpus to deny a trial for soldiers and officers caught in the battles that ensued during the war.
After the war, they were disputing over state borders, dealing with numerous uprising and not being unified as a nation.

Hunter Estes Unit 2, Lesson 2 Gillespie’s Influence, a Legacy of Discrimination and Bigotry George Gillespie played a key role in the formation of the American Union’s fledgling government. Through his works, he convinced our Founding Fathers that civil government should be kept separate from the government of the church. By forcing this, he opened the door to arguments that shut religion out of politics and suppress the wishes of a large portion of our society. Today, we hold the “separation of church and state” to be one of the most important parts of our constitution, but we must confront the uncomfortable fact that, for much of American history, the phrase "separation of church and state" have often been expressions of exclusion, intolerance,
