The price Henry must pay for this battle, a number of men that must die is enough already. He cares for every man in his army and believes that even one more life from his army is too much behalf of everyone being worth something. Henry composes his men as though they are not discriminated against based on their past and have a high degree of importance despite the various differences between them. In the army, social status does not matter.
He while he was a sort of Stateman, he was more Kennedy than Roosevelt but without the high level administrative wit either of them had. That never hid, they that had it all, he was a made man, and he did not need to report to anyone, the kind a man a person could admire. I grew up in a low-income area where you always thought about making it big and while Lorenzo de’ Medici was not from a poor family by a long shot that is that kind of man you wanted to be. You would see men
Lincoln was brave for having the courage to seek success after everyone turned him down. This allowed him to lead the US to success during the Civil War. Lincoln was turned down in 1832, 1834, 1838, 1843 and 1858 before being elected as president. Lincoln 's was faced with the challenge of reuniting the shattered halves of the two unions during his time as commander in chief. His main purpose was to lead and fight during the Civil War, but saw that it was neccessary to make changes to his strategy if it would benefit the union.
This is proving that Lee was ready to surrender after Gettysburg. Morale was a major factor as to why Gettysburg was a turning point. The Battle of Gettysburg was a game changer in the Civil War because of it’s geography, morale, and losses. Geography because it was fought in the North. Morale because Robert E. Lee didnt want to fight anymore.
That weapon was an unwavering love and desire to truly help those in need, one of the greatest qualities there can be in a leader. “Please Lord. Help me get one more.” (Gibson) A true leader is one that is not selfish and only cares what is good for them.
It is simply waiting out there for you to grasp it, and all you have to do is reach for it” (pg 57). Christopher McCandless is a remarkable man who sincerely believed in the transcendentalist view of having a simplified life, mirroring Henry David Thoreau’s ideals. Christopher broke out of his life of conformity to accomplish something he was immensely passionate about. Lots of people admire him for his braveness and independence, and others think he went nuts. When it comes down to it, Christopher McCandless ended his life the way he wanted.
All wars are fought, won or lost, by the success of the hierarchy within the military. A chain of command, as seen in this classic film conveys that dependence on leadership, in war or in life, does not denote negativity. Through the graphic realism of the settings and strong, dependable leadership portrayals of the actors, Saving Private Ryan, ensures that audiences are aware that war necessitates a dependence on leadership, but does not detract from the brutal reality that all wars facilitate loss of life. “Which means that for the men engaged in combat, the actual experience of war is often nothing more than a battle to the death, independent of right and wrong” as stated by Caldwell. Leadership provides the structure necessary, in which to overcome the fundamental chaos of war and enable the success of missions, which knowingly may lead to the death of those involved.
Alexander Graham Bell, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, world war I and II veterans, Vietnam war veterans, and soldiers currently serving today. These men are remembered today, not because of what they wrote, or said, but because of what they did, what they actively did. Sure, Abraham Lincoln gave some mighty fine speeches, but let’s be honest here, we all know Abraham Lincoln, for his great beard, his amazing top hat, and his actively getting us out of the civil war. These were acts, not words. Today I will not be arguing that the pen is mightier than the sword, but rather, that the sword is mightier than then pen.
This is a very strong point that the Soldier makes. But he is only looking at himself and Ryan as a resource that is worth a certain amount to the Army. If you look at each individual as a resource than the decision to save Ryan is very difficult because it would cost a lot of resources to find a resource and then take that resource out of battle in the end. This ideology leads to treating Soldiers not as humans and it is a slippery slope of unethical or moral
Grant on the other hand was not raised wealthy at all he knew the struggle, he had a vision for where he thought the future was going. Completely different, but exactly the same when it came to their personality. Almost the same even when they were fighting, Grant fought with tenacity, Lee fought knowing he would give his life at any second if he had too. This is why people looked up
I would agree with both characters in certain ways since each captain showed different aspects that made themselves unique. Grant, for example, was a great soldier that only care about the future of the nation. On the other hand, Lee was the image everybody wanted to follow. His personality was higher than Grant’s, and his desire of keeping the old aristocratic mentality was the nation’s example of loyalty. But, they both had the same purpose which is keeping the American nation as one united country.
Quite a number of the Confederate’s generals were hurt, dead, or dying which made Lee one of the few generals who were capable of leading the army. In a letter to Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederates, Lee requested him to replace him as general. Document C explains that Lee felt like he not only failed the South, but he also failed himself when he lost The Battle of Gettysburg. Document C states, “I therefore, in all sincerity, request Your Excellency to take measures to supply my place. I do this with the more earnestness because no one is more aware than myself of my inability for the duties of my position” (277).
The Unions leaders had General George B. McClellan. He commanded the Army of the Potomac. He was very well loved by his men and always wanted the best for them but at the expense of the Union. He disliked abolitionists and the Republican Party and had very little respect for Abraham Lincoln himself but his biggest problem was that he was a perfectionist. Because of this, McClellan was almost always ready to move but not quite.
“Failures have been errors in judgement, not of intent,” said Ulysses S. Grant in his final state of union address as the 18th president of the United states. Ulysses S. Grant was one of the most famous people in America during the late 19th century, second only to Abraham Lincoln. He is known for leading the United States through the civil war, eventually winning the war for the northern states against the Confederacy. After winning the war, he became the eighteenth president of the United States. Growing up in Ohio, he was sent to West Point, where he learned how to be a good commander.
