Winston Churchill, in his informational speech, “Their Finest Hour” (June 18th, 1940) explained the military situation and rallied his people for what he probably knew was going to be a tremendous struggle against the Axis. Winston Churchill supports his thesis through, rhetorical questioning, pathos, ethos and logos. Churchill’s purpose was to inform and rally the people in order to strengthen their confidence in Britain 's military.

George Washington had a vision for the United States of America that seems to be unattainable. In his Farewell Address, he gave a strong warning to the nation: don’t create political parties, and don’t create alliances with other nations. While Washington had good intentions, there was little possibility of his warnings being heeded. Political parties were established before Washington even left office, and permanent alliances with foreign militaries show no signs of disappearing. Washington acknowledged that political parties are a part of human nature in his Farewell Address, and that still holds true today.
Roosevelt was able to both give amazing speeches and accomplish the goals he spoke of throughout his time in office. Landing the position of presidency by chance after Mckinley’s assassination, Roosevelt felt responsible to follow the deceased president’s vision, “So not to upset a nation in mourning.” (“Theodore Roosevelt"). This was a encouraging start to Roosevelt 's presidency, reassuring the people there would not be any major changes.

He honored the men who fought to liberate Europe with such grace and honesty that one cannot help but feel an urge to honor those men themselves. He spoke to the people and the government of the Soviet Union and stood firm as he told them to leave the territories that they had taken and force would be used if necessary. However, he called for that to be a last resort and he strongly desired for the conflict of
Patrick Henry, a successful Virginian delegate, spoke to fellow Virginia delegates in late March of 1775. Ultimately, his objective was to persuade delegates, especially those against war, that the only option was to fight against Great Britain for independence. By illustrating how a lack of action would result in the colonists practically being Britain’s slaves, he began to turn the people's’ minds towards his idea of pursuing war. Henry uses emotional appeal to persuade his audience, and an exceptional example of this is his famous quote: “Give me liberty or give me death!”. Henry’s use of rhetorical devices as means of persuasion were the key aspects of his speech and helped convince the colonists to fight back.
Even to this day, Washington’s farewell address is still one of the most celebrated speeches in American history. Washington’s farewell address warned the country against “the baneful effects of the Spirit of Party.” Washington greatly encouraged the country to focus on education and morality, and cautioned the country against sectionalism within the nation, and warned about foreign alliances. This speech is still greatly remembered and referenced because George Washington nearly predicted the future of the country in his speech, however, it is apparently obvious that the nation ignored Washington’s warnings. Washington’s presidency lasted from April 30, 1789, to March 4, 1797.

Roosevelt says this in the way he did because at this point in time he didn’t want to physical fight but he knows if the country needs to we will. Roosevelt knows that wars do not solve the problem which is why he simply wanted to aid countries and not physically fight with them, causing the loss of many lives. Roosevelt had four basic freedoms that he wanted to be conserved and saved.
“ by perseverance and fortitude we have the prospect of a glorious issue” (Paine, paragraph 13). If they go out there and fight they will have a chance of winning their freedom rather than just letting the British rule over them. Many colonists would have thought that fighting for their liberty would have been supported by their god so they wouldn't feel guilty for going through with the act. Using pathos influenced the colonists because if you use common beliefs and morals, it tells the public you will be on their side and you know how to win this
