Along with the numerous achievements in government, Washington also had some literary achievements. A number of people believe that Washington single handedly wrote the Articles of Confederation, Declaration of Independence, or the Constitution. As a matter of fact, he did not write one of those documents. Although he was in the meeting for the Constitution, he did not write it himself. However, Washington did author a multitude of letters.
He was the commander of the continental army. First battle of the American Revolution, the battle of Lexington and Concord, involved leadership of Washington. The battle was also known as “The shots heard around the world.” Washington proved his leadership by laying out a surprise attack at Trenton after crossing the Delaware River in 1776. Although Washington and his men experienced tough luck at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777, his military was able to survive. George Washington also proved his leadership in the last years of the war.

America’s path from George Washington’s Farewell Address to FDR’s Four Freedoms Speech has been one of increasing involvement on the world stage. In 1796, America had only been an independent nation separated from mother England for twenty years. Naturally, the dangers of being made subservient to another nation were more real, having so recently been a reality. Washington’s remarks that “attachments [to foreign nations] are particularly alarming to the truly enlightened and independent patriot” (Source A), then, make perfect sense given the fresh memories of British rule that Americans still had. By 1941, America had undergone numerous changes.
Isolated in his vast empire of a home, Kane uttered only one word before he passed: “rosebud.” The whole country knows about this news publisher’s life, but for some, his life story is not enough. For the duration of the film, a reporter called Thompson (William Alland) tries to debunk what this last word, “rosebud,” could have meant. Could it be a person? A place? Maybe an item he held close?

Anna Wilson Ms. Keri Hamrick HIS 201 June 6, 2015 Review of 1776 1776 by David McCullough is published by Simon and Schuster. In 1776 David McCullough perfectly illustrates how the American army was always on the edge of defeat during the year of 1776. The story was limited to only one year with little background information; this causes confusion. Those who do not have a good understanding of the American Revolution will have an especially difficult time deciphering what the book is describing. McCullough makes up for the confusion by adding vivid details from diaries, journals, reference works, and a numerous amount of books.

Americans also known as Patriots knew the land very well.
GEORGE WASHINGTON The story of George Washington, the ‘father of the nation’ has been told and retold. His accomplishments stack up, one after the other, delicately preserved in the annals of time, to serve as a reminder of why this man, and America, are so great. But rarely has a biography set out to capture the soul of the man, as opposed to the legend everyone knows, and painted such a vivid picture. George Washington was born to a large family, with a total of seven siblings. His family moved a lot in his formative years, and his youth was permanently derailed by the death of his father, which meant he could not obtain the education he wanted.
George Washington had a very rough but successful childhood. He was born in Westmoreland County, Virginia on February 22, 1732. His father owned plantation, businesses, and mines in many places. When George was eleven, his father died. As a result, he moved to live with his half-brother, Lawrence, on the estate they had inherited from their father.
