I Have a Dream’s Rhetoric A momentous day in history is exalted by the enthralling speech and resonating imagery of a man whom wanted to make a difference. Just over 100 years after the Emancipation Proclamation was implemented, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered a very riveting speech to over 250,000 Americans during the March on Washington, the nation’s largest demonstration of peaceful protest. With peace typically comes logic of which King very much emanated from his speech. With powerful rhetoric, King captivated an entire crowd and subsequently the entire nation with emphasizing while being freed from the travesty that was slavery people of color are still placed in chains by society’s gruesome yet commonplace demarcations.

He became Vice President of the United States in 1960. After John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Johnson became President of the United States (Lyndon B).

life whatever be its age” Behind the imposing structure of the Massachusetts’s State House, amidst the reek of governance and corruption, there lies a memorial in the Ashburton Park Entrance. With the glistening golden dome reflecting on it, the memorial is often ignored in bustling Beacon Hill. Acting as an area of serenity, the Massachusetts’s Fireman’s Memorial is a tremendous dedication to those who serve. On September 11th, 2007 the Massachusetts’s Fireman’s Memorial was unveiled, “As a tribute to the spirit, courage, and dedication of past, present, and future firefighters.” At first glance one might be quick to dismiss it as simple bronze statue.

With the outbreak of hostilities, Revere turned industrialist and constructed a much-needed powder mill to supply colonial arms. In 1776, he was put in command of Boston Harbor’s principal defense at Castle William, but his war record as a lieutenant colonel was largely undistinguished. He resumed his stride as a successful industrialist after the war, however, and set up a rolling mill for the manufacture of sheet copper at Canton, Massachusetts. From this factory came sheathing for many U.S. ships, including the USS Constitution, and the dome of the Massachusetts statehouse. Even after his military and political career ended he continued to discuss the issues of the day, and in 1814 he circulated a petition offering the government the services of Boston’s artisans in protecting Boston during the War of 1812.
