The reader gets to know him as an intelligent teacher, a courageous soldier, a decisive leader, a devoted brother and friend.
This conclusion is drawn from the fact that Churchill’s speech was given only three short days after taking the position of Prime Minister. Without a reputation such as Queen Elizabeth, Churchill had the seemingly insurmountable responsibility of convincing a still recovering country from World War I to go back to war. Therefore, I believe Churchill’s speech was more motivational despite the odds against
Susan B. Anthony led the women’s suffrage movement, a movement that impacted the lives of American women forever. Although Susan B. Anthony participated in other movements, such as the temperance movement and the abolitionist movement, but she mainly focused on women’s rights. As a member of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, she was determined to bring American women their rights.

However, her decision was reasonable and she should not

Their efforts in the 1840’s eventually lead to the 19th amendment (which gave women the right to vote) being passed in 1920. The key leaders of the Women's Reform Movement of the 1840’s were
Referring to such a defining moment in history were just one of the reasons why President Lincoln’s speech was so successful. The Gettysburg Address, one of the shortest, most quoted, and successful speeches in U.S. history was all due to the way President Lincoln was able to use ethos, logos, and pathos while presenting his speech to the audience at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Firstly, of the three modes of persuasion President Lincoln used his first was ethos. Ethos, are used to convince the audience with the author’s reliability or ethics.

Churchill's speeches impacted way more than just Great Britain in the 1940s. He knew the impact words can have from since he was a child. Churchill had a lisp when he was young.

One of Albert’s most important speeches other than his coronation is his first wartime speech on September 3, 1939, the day Britain declared war on Germany. The speech was so significant because it was one that brought hope to the citizens of Britain to stand firm and be brave during the time of war.
