During the twentieth century, liberals were anxious to distance themselves from anything that might possibly be perceived as being associated with communism, which resulted in many cold war liberals abandoning their original concerns. Not only did the nation’s cultural and intellectual life suffer as a result of the weakened noncommunist left, but the institutions of American democracy suffered as well. Rather than arguing against issues, such as McCarthyism, that were occurring and would have originally concerned left-wing ideologists, those issues now became irrelevant. Therefore, in my opinion, the weakening of the noncommunist left can be partly blamed on liberals and progressives who reacted poorly to accusations that they were communist
Instead, it is Germany’s Military reorganization because it reduced Germany’s military which made them feel weak and trapped which for a nationalism country, it is the worst to no longer feel the pride in your country the you used to. These four ways the Treaty of Versailles punished Germany after WWI helped the Treaty to be the cause of WWII. On that note I will leave you with, do you still believe one document couldn’t have helped to start World War
was going to save money. A wise decision would have been to raise taxes on American citizens in order to raise fund for the war. Lyndon B. Johnson, president of the United States at the time, was unwilling to raise taxes, which resulted in a horrible cycle of inflation4 and debt. Johnson’s arrogance and stubbornness not to raise taxes, consequently led America to a worse economy. This act of arrogance from Johnson further validates the argument: the U.S. should not have invaded Vietnam.
In the American Revolution, there were two sides, the American Patriots who were willing to die for freedom, and the British Loyalists who were willing to die for their King. The main cause that the American Patriots wanted to separate from the British was because they were tired from the cruel and unfair ruling given by the British. They said the British were being cruel and unfair, for example, taxation without representation. Along with this reason, there are many more factors that led the American Patriots to leave Britain.
With all of the events that took place during this time, they all added up to cause a scare in America at the time. I believe that McCarthy was the main cause of the Red Scare because of his accusations of many American people. McCarthy accused American citizens as well as the United States government while HUAC only accused Hollywood
John Adams presidency was controversial. Following George Washington’s presidency, John Adams became president but not by many votes. John Adams presidency was an ineffective President of the United States. I believe he was ineffective due to the XYZ Affair, the Alien and Sedition ACts, his political parties, and him isolating his cabinet and him as vice president. First of all, the XYZ Affairs and Alien and Sedition Acts played an impact on John Adams ineffective presidency.
People from South Vietnam then disliked Diem for hate towards Buddhist, and soon after the Viet Cong (National Liberation Front) were created and it was an anti government activists including communists and non-communists (vietnamwar.info). After the war ended, and many people’s lives were ruined many families wanted to immigrate to America and begin a new life in America. People knew they could have more freedom, start over and have a better life with their families. My grandma and grandpa also moved to America and her children and siblings started to move to America every few years to
The Vietnam War gives valuable lessons that can be used in the present-day war campaigns. For one, the Vietnam War was based on deception that is the trend today as with the insurgents and terrorist groups. Though U.S. and South Vietnamese forces managed to hold off the Communist attacks, the offensive shocked and demoralized not only their forces but as well as the American public and further eroded support for the war effort. The victory gained by the ‘Tet offensive’ (CNN, 1988) that triggered the deliberate and shameful withdrawal of US forces from the region.
Question 1 I think that Andrew Jackson was a bad president. He was bad because he was disrespectful to the native americans. Andrew Jackson declared federal tariffs of 1828 and 1832 were unconstitutional. The nation suffered a economic downturn through the 20’s. Politicians blamed the change in fortunes on the national tariff policy.
Based on how he portrayed the former president, the author believes that George Bush was missing the point about the War on Terror. Many people believed that President Bush 's War on Terror did nothing but harm the lives of millions of Iraqi, Afghanistanian, and Pakistani civilians and cost America billions of dollars. It is probable that the author thought that Bush 's actions over the course of the war were unnecessary and that he missed the most important part of it : taking down the man responsible for 9/11. Osama Bin Laden in drawn in the picture behind a deep in thought President Bush holding a sword and having an irritated expression, I think meaning behind this is : while President Bush was missing out on his true purpose for starting the War on Terror, Osama Bin Laden was already one step ahead of him and preparing to attack America once
The concept of the Reconstruction was a “second founding” of the nation is based on the results of the Reconstruction. David Blight states in his lecture that the Reconstruction represented “… great change, great experimentation, change…” and the leadership “… rewrote the country you live in.” What evidence is there to support Blight’s argument? Foner’s A Short History of the Reconstruction provides some evidence.
In Hamilton, Mark Steinberg successfully divulges details of the life of Alexander Hamilton from his birth until his death.

This section contains a summary of Hamilton, with Steinberg beginning his book by stating his purpose in writing this book.

Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) and John F. Kennedy (JFK) were both innovative and transformative presidents in their respective times. Both Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” speech and Kennedy’s inaugural address were powerful and persuasive. However, Roosevelts speech supported freedom, had a historical context of World War II (WWII), and had a purpose of persuading the United States to join the Soviet Union in WWII, whereas Kenney’s speech also supported freedom, had a historical context of being involved in the Cold War, and its purpose was to gain more freedom while also trying to end the threat of war and nuclear destruction. In FDR’s
