Specifically, 1776 the year we gained our independence from Great Britain. He reminds us where we came from and how we as people joined together in the past to defeat a common enemy. Abraham Lincoln reminds us that we came from a king that showed no mercy towards us Americans. President Lincoln takes time to show honor for all of those who fought in battle and got wounded or killed. “The Gettysburg Address” is specifically made up to this point in time in our nation’s gruesome history.
John Mosby, a Virginian lawyer, joined the Confederate side as a private in the Virginia Volunteers and fought in the First Battle of Bull Run, one of the first major battles of the Civil War. Impressed with how well he gathered information, in 1862, J.E.B. Stuart promoted Mosby to First Lieutenant and gave him cavalry scouts. Mosby and his rangers, the 43rd Virginia Cavalry, used hit and run tactics to steal Union supplies and ammunition and to harass their couriers. Because of how fast Mosby’s Rangers could appear and disappear during attacks, he was called “The Gray Ghost”.
Today, millions of women can implement their rights to vote in all elections in the united states of America, but this (rights) did not come easily to those women who sacrifice their lives to make this happen. In the speech “Address to Congress on Women’s Suffrage”, Catt delivered her message for women’s right from a firsthand account of what she had experienced as a woman living in the United States of America in the 19th century. She advocated for the rights of women to vote because she believes in equal rights and justice for all citizens. The speech was very successful because of the use of ethos, pathos, and logos.
Some persuasive and rhetorical techniques used in this speech are the fact that he is credible. The more ethos you have, the more persuasive you will be. His credibleness is present because he gives examples of ethos. The audience of this speech is intended to be the entire nation.
Speeches in America’s history have been very powerful and moving. The speech given by Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain before the Battle of Gettysburg that changed the minds of 114 mutineers to fight alongside him in this battle. I feel like I could compare Colonel Chamberlain's speech to the wonderful “I Have a Dream Speech” spoken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Both of these amazing and powerful words spoken by Martin Luther King Jr. Colonel Chamberlain’s speech were trying to move these mutineers to fight for his regiment that is below half strength and Dr. King is trying to get rid of racism. So both of these men are giving their speech for something incredibly important.
Pope Francis’ address to congress was not only a memorable speech, but also a speech that brought up many important topics regarding all Americans. Pope Francis’ eloquent discourse captured the attention of all of those in the crowd as well as the millions who watched his speech from other locations. Overall, Pope Francis’ address was concerned with the moral responsibility of political action for the good of the whole. In his opening statement, Pope Francis puts himself on a level with all others in the room as he states, “I too am a son of this great continent.” Rather than addressing himself to be much higher up than those who he is speaking to, Pope Francis chooses to relate to his audience rather than speak down to them.
Kennedy has many good uses of pathos all throughout his speech. He brings many emotions alive, but by far the one that is brought to life the most is when he says, “I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man.” You can sense the sadness that he felt when he spoke in front of all those people. As for logos Kennedy has plenty, he is clearly informing the people about the death of MLK. When he says “Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice between fellow human beings.”
This suspense helps him in the long run with his goal of persuasion. The plebeians listen to what he has to say, between that time of hearing the will, and start to agree with the pleas Mark Antony makes. “‘Tis good you know not that you are his heirs; For, if you should, O, what would come of it!” In this quote Mark Antony means that the people of Rome change their beliefs so often, like they did about Caesar after Brutus spoke, what would happen it they acquired Caesar’s inheritance. Therefore, the initial feelings the people get when hearing the words of Antony is guilt.
As I spoke, I felt his eyes gazing upon me, taking in my initial appearance and associating it with his own experience. “Well it’s a pleasure to acquaint myself with someone of your immense beauty.” His way with words exasperated me. Such a proper, sophisticated young man, I’ve never seen anybody like him. He appeared to be an incarnation of one of my dreams.
“We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal.” This phrase, though written in 1776, was not followed until August 18, 1920. After 144 years, women received the right to vote because of the many women who fought to put an end to the injustices against them. “Declaration of Sentiments and Resolutions” and “Solitude of Self” by Elizabeth Cady Stanton were two remarkable essays written in defense of women's rights. Although these speeches were written by the same author, there are many differences in their writing style and technique.
He used his determination to win battles before he was the top general he led “a bunch of who led by generals who played by the rule book”. He did not go by that unlike and it translated to win after victory after victory. Which led to the confidence of the Union soldiers
After winning approval from Major General Halleck Grant embarked with 30,000 troops into Tennessee. The fort was bombarded by ironclads and wooden ships. Before Grant could storm the fort, two naval officers went out to accept the Confederate surrender. Although 3,000 rebels escaped, the battle was very important because it gave the Union an opening to Tennessee and
When the Confederacy moved its capital to Richmond, Virginia, 100 miles from Washington, everyone expected a firm battle on the ground between the union and confederate cities. In the spring of 1861, 35000 Confederate troops led by General Pierre Beauregard moved north to protect Richmond from being attacked. Lincoln 's troops had nearly completed its requirement of 90 days and field commander, General Irvin Mcdowell, didn 't want to fight. Pressure to act, on 18 of July McDowell marched his army of 37000 troops in Virginia.
The War begins March 4, 1861. Major Anderson, the commander in charge of Fort Sumter, and 80 men, reported that the Confederate patience for having a foreign fort in its territory was wearing thin. On April 11, 1861 Confederate Brigadier General P.G.T. Beauregard sent 500 men to Major Anderson to demand the fort’s surrender. Major Anderson refused and the next day Confederates opened fire on the fort. The fort was continuously under fire for 34 hours until Major Anderson surrendered.
