The use of pathos during Henry’s speech is intense and concentrated on words about or pertaining to slavery. Henry compares the colonists to Britain’s slaves multiple times, inducing an emotional uproar, “Our enemies shall have us bound hand and foot,” in “There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains have been forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston!” and lastly in “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?” (Henry 104). Patrick Henry has his audience wrapped around his finger by his incredible use of loaded words, imagery, and fear tactics.
Fidel Castro: Animal Farm Antics In 1952, Fulgencio Batista overthrew the Cuban government and became a dictator. Fidel Castro then organized a group of rebel forces and defeated Batista in 1959. Castro was then elected by common city dwellers as the undisputed prime minister of Cuba. Later on, he became president through several techniques used to gain and maintain his rule. Therefore, Fidel Castro is similar to Napoleon from Animal Farm because both use lies, censorship, and police terror to gain and maintain control.
McKinley Shamed as an Insolent Fool Scandal has erupted in McKinley’s infant presidency, as Spanish Ambassador Enrigue Depuy de Lome expressed his rather harsh views on our “Leader of the Free World”. He declares President McKinley as weak and simple-minded, as his foreign involvement in Cuba grows tiresome. The letter has been intercepted and released to the public between its intended course to the Foreign Minister of Spain. USS Maine Blown to Shreds by Spanish The U.S. battleship, USS Maine, was stationed in Cuba’s Havana Harbor. American troops were stationed in Cuba, generously willing to protect our citizens overseas, helping the government with the suppression of riots and uprisings.
General Washington and the French had General Cornwallis trapped by land and sea and they forced him to surrender.George Washington’s strategy was to trap Cornwallis by surrounding him on land and then have the French destroy his reinforcements and block off his escape to sea. .

In 1979, religious fundamentalists dethroned the Shah and took 66 American hostages from the U.S. embassy. The group would return the hostages in exchange for the Shah’s return to Iran in order to stand trial for his crimes. President Jimmy Carter attempted diplomacy and a military rescue of the hostages but did not succeed. Carter became aware of the consequences of the nation’s dependence on foreign oil and delivered a State of the Union Address. Carter stated, “Our excessive dependence on foreign oil is a clear and present danger to our Nation 's security.” The dependence on foreign oil escalated to endangerment of American lives.
Another famous and well documented act of lunacy by Caligula was his planned military campaign against Britain. Suetonius, a historian documents that his execution was bizarre as he allegedly stopped his planned attack on Britain to suddenly gather his troops so they could declare war on the sea. He supposedly forced his troops to gather and collect sea shells and attack ocean waves. These troops had to carry these seashells back to Rome as tokens of emperor’s glorious victory over the sea-god Neptune. Some say Caligula was insane, but historians have hypothesized that Caligula could have possibly suffered from a disease.
After that, convinced that Arbenz threatened U.S. national security because of his alleged Communist sympathies, Eisenhower approved the first-ever clandestine military action in Latin America. June 18, 1954, after approximately one year of preparation, U.S.- backed troops invaded Guatemala with the intention of overthrowing Arbenz. Realizing his army had forsaken him and fearing for his life, Arbenz resigned as president on June 27th and fled to Mexico. The U.S.-chosen leader of the military coup, Carlos Castillo Armas, assumed control of the government, thus ensuring the promotion of American interests in Guatemala.
• Emiliano Zapata was born on August 8, 1879 in Anenecuilco, Mexico and died in April 10, 1919. • He was arrested after protesting the hacienda that had taken his and other peasants’ lands.

The Bay of Pigs Operation The Bay of Pigs Operation is the U.S. final measure in preventing the spread of communism into the western hemisphere. For years the CIA and other intelligence agencies have taken interest in Cuba, following the overthrow of U.S. backed Cuban Leader Fulgencio Batista by rebel leader Fidel Castro. The initial proposal of the operation is to outgoing President Eisenhower towards the end of his administration. President Eisenhower approves of the initial plan to overthrow the newly formed Castro regime. President Kennedy approves the final plan early in his administration.
After a year's imprisonment, he traveled to Mexico where he formed a revolutionary group, the 26th of July Movement, with his brother Raúl Castro and Che Guevara. Returning to Cuba, Castro took a key role in the Cuban Revolution by leading the Movement in a guerrilla war against Batista's forces from the Sierra Maestra. After Batista's overthrow in 1959, Castro assumed military and political power as Cuba's Prime Minister. Fidel Castro’s political style emphasised active engagement and self-discipline. He believed that individuals can overcome any obstacle they desire if they have a strong will to do so and that revolution is the important mission worth pursuing.
During the Spanish-American War, the Spanish ruled over Cuba for approximately 400 years and finally, Cuban rebels declared independence. Also during this time, Americans had expansion fever so we decided to help Cubans overthrow the Spanish. However, Americans used yellow journalism to create reenactments of the war to show citizens back home what war was like, but sometimes the reenactments were lies. The war started because the United States’ ship, the Maine, mysteriously exploded in one of the harbors of Cuba and we blamed it on the Spanish with no proof. When the United States attacked Cuba, it was our first attempt at global expansion.
Though a great charismatic leader, one operation puts a blemish on JFK’s report card. This operation was The Bay of Pigs Invasion in which JFK authorized a militia to enter Cuba and attempt a coup d 'état to overthrow Fidel Castro. The communist rule in Cuba knew well in advance of the CIA’s plan, making the attack a complete failure. Inside the museum sits a large portion of what was the Berlin Wall. Although the wall fell in 1989, its construction during Kennedy’s presidency in 1961 nearly started war.
Considered by some to be the starting point for the Cuban Missile Crisis and one of the worst foreign policy disasters of the 20th century, the Bay of Pigs invasion in April 1961 was a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-guided effort by 1400 American-trained Cuban exiles living in Miami to overthrow Fidel Castro’s regime and replace it with a more U.S. friendly, non-communist government. Deemed “Operation Pluto,” the plans for the invasion originated during the end of the Eisenhower administration, as a response to Castro’s ousting of General Fulgencio Bastista, a corrupt and repressive dictator who was pro-American and supported American operations. Becoming nervous at the thought of communism so close to the U.S.’s borders, the Eisenhower
1898 Spanish American War On the year of 1898, tensions between the United States and Spain begun to rise over the domination of Spain of Latin America and some places of the Caribbean. The war started because Cuba was eager to reach for independence from Spain. There was word that the spanish rulers of Cuba were treating the people brutal. Cuban forces demolished areas of the island so the Spanish would not be able to stay. General Valeriano Weyler, the Spanish army leader got revenge by placing Cubans in concentration camps.
the United States invaded Cuba in 1898 to pursue humanitarian efforts. the United States used propaganda targeting humanitarian concerns to incite the public to declare war. As Americans were interested in the Cuban Revolution, sensational journalism only raised tensions between the United States and the Spanish monarchy, which would help cause the war. While General Weyler
