Sukh Singh Period 2 October 16, 2014 Synopsis I did my this day in history report on Alexander the Great. Alexander the great is known for many things. He was king of Macedonia, a military genius, and the greatest conqueror of all time-to name a few. Alexander was taught by many great minds, perhaps most responsible for his greatness was Aristotle. Alexander was given many hard tasks and tremendous responsibilities as a child and teen, which he carried out with ease.

George Washington is indeed one of the best presidents our country has ever had. The citizen's adoration for him was endless, and his achievements and history still lives on today in our books and part of our education system. Washington did not start out to be a president, "He believed so strongly in that (running 2 terms only) concept that he refused to run for a third term." (Paragraph 3, Father of Our Nation), before his presidency, he was a general who fought at the front line of most battles. With such incredulous leadership skills, this lead him to becoming the well known Commander in Chief of the American Army.
The Life of Julius Caesar The History staff uses facts and evidence to support their claim that Julius Caesar is often remembered as one of the greatest military minds in history and credited with laying the foundation for the Roman Empire. The History Staff supports their claim by including his life before he was known for his many achievements and the First Triumvirate that started his career.

During his life, did Alexander show enough leadership, courage, and concern for others to be considered great? By these measures, Alexander was great for at least three reasons: military genius, inspiring leader, and spread of Greek cultures. First of all, one reason that Alexander was great was because he was a military genius. He was a genius because he conquered so much land and did not stop. In document B it states, “That Alexander made a plan to trick Porus by acting like he was going over the river by making
Through his battles, Caesar is known for his conquest of Gaul. Caesar had many victories and soon became the dictator of Rome. Not only did Caesar eliminate all his enemies and conquer places but he was kind to his defeated rivals. Without a son of his own, he needed an heir. Caesar then adopted Augustus.
Glorious men have graced the earth and have left significant impressions on the following generations. Alexander the Great suits that profile like none other. As arguably one of the most influential military leaders in history, Alexander conquered the majority of the known world, including large-scale empires such as the Persian. Succeeding his father, Philip II, to the throne at the age of 20, Alexander commanded an already skilled military, which he schooled further in the beginning of his reign. Even militarily significant empires had no chance against Alexander 's military brilliance and so he constructed one of the largest empires in history.

Caesar battled in many wars and was also involved in Roman politics. He then became the dictator of the Roman Empire which carried on for the short span of a year before his unexpected death. However, he accomplished many duties and responsibilities by the young age of 31. The cause of Julius Caesar’s death was by assassination by his enemies. Caesar might have died but shortly after his death he became the scapegoat in the new Roman Empire.
Julius Caesar proved that he was one of the greatest Romans to be apart of Rome and with his military strategies that led him to conquer most of Gaul and parks of England, this shows that he was a true genius. The way that he was able to manipulate the government so he would win his election is just so elegant. He got the richest man in Rome and one of the most respected and joined them three together, and together they could have done anything. Julius Caesar used his greatness in battle as a way for him to gain popularity within the Roman population. Julius Caesar was a Roman
Qin Shi Huangdi and Caesar Augustus’s domination of multiple empires during their different lifetimes is what lead to them gaining the title of the first emperor of their empires. With peace finally brought to their territories, they gained supreme power over all. Their commitment to honoring their title showed by the way they appealed to the people. But, having great power was a substantial responsibility. They constantly had to show dedication to their empires, so the people never doubted why they were in power.
One of his earliest major events was when he joined his uncle, who was an important military commander, in the Syrian army. Saladin helped Shirkuh, his uncle, in leading the 1st and 2nd crusades, which were very successful. He played a vital role in this part of his life but his uncle had a much bigger role in this event as he was the one who helped him grow as a militant combatant and agreed to let Saladin join him. Another one of his, most significant events was when he was appointed the lieutenant of the Egyptian army meaning that he had one of the highest positions in the military. He played major roles in deciding how the military would “interact” with the Christian Crusaders and what the strategic plans for the military would be.
He set leaders over the regions he vanquished like the how the Persians put satraps over their kingdoms. He had an enduring effect on the world. The enduring influences Alexander 's victory had on the world can be seen from multiple points of view. He spread Hellenistic values everywhere throughout the old world, which helped really taking shape of numerous dialects around today. He spread exchange courses, which are still being used, and innovation that sent the world forward in the territories of transportation and
There have been many presidents who have done spectacular things that stick out in our minds and in our history forever. George Washington, our very first president under the new constitution, is the one that most frequently comes to mind with how he helped win the Revolution against Great Britain. Another who does is Thomas Jefferson who helped expand America and gain the territory we have today and who wrote our Declaration of Independence. However, the most influential out of all of them is Abraham Lincoln, the president that brought us out of the civil war and end slavery. Abraham Lincoln was a very strong president in the fact that he kept the government balanced and leveled out when it was reeling back and surviving the war.
Alexander the Great is often referred to as one of the most powerful and the greatest leader of the world has ever seen. He achieved a great deal in his leadership role and military expeditions. In a span of twelve years, Alexander was able to take control of the Persian Empire, conquer Egypt and a large part of the Middle East. Alexander enjoyed the finest education of that time, molding him into a leader that his father, Philip II would have wanted. The Greek philosopher Aristotle helped to expand Alexander’s knowledge in science and philosophy of the modern world.
