The novel 1776 by David McCullough tells the story of George Washington and his perseverance through the war, making him a successful general and leader. The novel focuses solely on the year of 1776, the year that America gained its independence. This gives McCullough the opportunity to provide great detail about battles, events, and most importantly, George Washington. The book describes Washington as both a leader and a general because of his great qualities in both areas.

Calvin Coolidge was a President who exemplified many important values; he is well-known for his honesty, integrity, rationality, self-discipline, and hard work. Throughout his life, he always remained true to himself and to these values, even when times were tough and it would have been easier to abandon them. This often times seems to be a rare occurrence amongst politicians, especially those who are prevalent in government today, but that is just a testament to the type of man, and President, that Coolidge was. While all of the values that were held by President Coolidge are incredibly important values for one to posses, I personally find that hard work is the most important of all of them. I believe this because nothing in this world is free; everything comes at a price and often times that price is the tireless dedication and hard work of those fighting to succeed.
