As of now you are the future president of The United States of America. With that title comes the responsibilities such as controlling foreign affairs, economic issues, and upholding civil rights. With all that said, you can see why it took many by surprise when you used “Twitter” as a means of spreading the message that in a situation where the burning of the American flag takes place, consequences like being jailed for one year and being striped of citizenship should be inforced. Although having pride in one’s nation is important, the act of flag burning should not be punishable; therefore, flag burning should be respected as a form of free expression. To begin it is important to note, that flag burning is and has been since the beginning, protected by the U.S Constitution.
The Confederate flag, born from slavery and rebellion, continues to serve as a symbol of racism, discrimination, and white supremacy towards minorities.

Color Guards’ Amazing History! People know that during half time at football games two bands play and in the band there are the color guard.

The aroma of powder scattered along the breeze, carcasses laid mystified upon the ground, the barbaric Confederacy has been thwarted. Our tactics of taking the lofty ground proved to be decisive. The presumptuous Robert E. Lee instructed his troops to Antietam and Chancellorsville, while planning a storm on the Union defense. I’ve heard gossip about Lee miscommunicating in with James Longstreet, which is why he foolishly let George Pickett led his battalion into the superbly structured Union lines. We shrouded ourselves behind trees and grasslands, dawdling until them came into range.
The sun began to give way to the night as it hid behind Duckwall Mountain up in the Tuolumne hills. The smell of popcorn throughout the stadium would have been given the highest praise from Mr. Redenbacher himself. Fans piled into Thorsted Field like ants looking for a sweet area to claim as their own. The Bears marched onto the field as if they were mighty Mongolian Empire warriors being led to battle by Genghis Kahn - defeat not an option. Dressed in their finest battle gear, the Bears’ flag was carried in front of the troops as a way to show the fight of the night was on its way.
This commemorative coin was based off of the Capitol building in Colonial Williamsburg. The Capitol was where Patrick Henry gave his speech Caesar Brutus. This speech was very inspirational and important to the colonists. This is why on the front side of the coin Patrick Henry’s face is shown along with his famous words “Give me liberty, or give me death!” These very inspirational words are a sign of liberty which is why on the back is the Grand Union Flag.
In these three writings, Harry Macarthy's “The Bonnie Blue Flag,” George F. Root’s “Battle Cry of Freedom,” and “The John Brown Song.” Display their views on how society fought for their freedoms. Men were told they had to fight, causing many to die because of fear. All of these writings express the value of freedom and how all people should have rights. In the American Reader by Diane Ravitch, almost all of the readings are similar in the sense that everyone wanted equal rights, Natural Rights, and a strong but not too powerful government.
The Black Death (1347-1352) was the Medieval black plague that ravaged Europe and killed a third of its population. It was due to the plague which is caused by a bacterium (Yersinia pestis) transmitted to humans from infected rats by the oriental rat flea (MedicineNet, 2018). There are three main forms of plague in humans: bubonic plague (the commonest form of plague in humans, characterized by fever, delirium, and the formation of buboes), septicemic plague (an especially dangerous form of plague in which the infecting organisms invade the bloodstream), and pneumonic plague (a severe lung infection caused by the bacterium Yersinia pestis). There are a few factors in explaining plague in the Middle Ages: religion, medieval medicine, and modern science, and I will be discussing religion in the Middle Ages as well as
The issue of the confederate flag has been an important cultural discussion point for some years now, but has recently taken on even greater importance in light of recent hate crimes in South Carolina, as well as rampant police brutality and shootings across the country. Much of the discussion has been an argument between the two schools of thought being that either the flag is a symbol of cultural heritage and nothing more, and the other being that it is a symbol of systematic and violent racism that has no right being in a place of honor and reverence in today’s society. In a way both schools are correct. The Confederate flag is a symbol of southern cultural history; it also happens that that history is a history of systematic and violent racism, starting from the flag’s creation and on to its popular resurgence in the south at the time of desegregation and the civil-rights movement.
To begin with, Confederate statues, flags, and monuments has been the history of our country so the people and the future generation can see what America have dealt with to be where we are at. In the United States, the statues and monuments are representation of historic mark as they are important part of the US history.
