Abraham Lincoln was also a politician for several years before becoming president because of his support for the American slaves and the abolition of slavery. The civil war in Rome started because the conservative members of the republican senate did not like how much power Caesar was gaining and because they were more socially traditional. Both of these leaders were assassinated by someone for political differences. Caesar was assassinated by the senators who opposed Caesar because they feared how much power he had. Caesar was attacked by over 60 members of the senate and received 23 stab wounds.
These were all significant figures that were assassinated because of the amount of power they had. It all goes back to the power that John F. Kennedy had when he was president because the assassinators were in fear of how much one person could change the United States as a
There are many tough parts to the book but obviously the worst one would easily be when Abraham Lincoln was shot in the back of the head by John Wilkes Booth. It was one of the worst thing to ever happen in the American Government and it was the first president to be Assassinated. Obviously being president Lincoln could not make every person in the United states but he did what he thought was the best for our nation and our country. And most of the time he was right. The night President Lincoln was shot there was also another attack on secretary of state William H Seward he was the secretary of state at the time and stabbed him three times in the throat and twice in the
When Andrew Jackson was campaigning for president, his whole campaign was focused on that he was the hero of the New Orleans battle and that he grew up in a poor environment like everyone else. Andrew Jackson promised that he would be the hero of the poor and, he kept his promise. Since he kept this promise he ruined the life of the rich. Andrew Jackson shut down that national bank which eliminated the loans the rich had with the bank and it hurt their financial well being. Shutting down that bank helped the poor though, because more people where going to use their local banks.
One day when Caesar went to the senate they all teamed up against him and stabbed him to death. Julius Caesar had too much control and power, Rich people wanted to rid himself. Abraham Lincoln was the first president to die of assassination. Abraham Lincoln was killed because of his promotion of voting rights for blacks. He was shot once in the back of the head by John Booth this shot immediately dropped him to the floor.
Also, the assassination of Gandhi is similar to that of Martin Luther King Jr., the main civil rights leader in the United States during the sixties who often protested the unfair treatment of blacks in America. His assassination is obscured by conspiracy, as to whether or not his convicted assassin really acted alone or if he conspired with others. Nevertheless, it can be said that his murder was most likely related to his work as a civil rights leader, who persistently pushed for the intolerance to end and for the indifference towards the hardships of the African-American community to
This essay will focus on how his marvellous yet disastrous reign changed the lives of everyone around and the modern world forever for the good and the worse. Firstly, Napoleon Bonaparte was responsible for the deaths 3.5 million French and other European countries soldiers and civilians. Some could argue that these were deaths due to his wars to protect France during these times, however I believe that actually he was responsible for the deaths of these people because of his never ending desire to extend France’s borders to make it the superpower of Europe and then the world. He showed this when he quoted “Death is nothing, but to live defeated and inglorious is to die daily” This shows he valued the lives of his soldiers below glory and victory. The effect of the war on France over this time period was
He called himself a president because he was elected, but he was really a communist leader that gradually gained more power. One of the voters said, "They told us to put the red ballot into envelopes and to throw the green ones into the wastebasket,” (Simkin); the voting was unfair which caused him to win. Ngo Dinh Diem was assassinated because he killed and imprisoned Buddhist that was not the same religion as him (Leonard).
The guillotine became a machine for revenge which prevented the French from quenching their thirst for blood and forming a new government. One who saw the death of Kin Louis said ‘blood flowed and cries of joy from eighty thousand armed men struck my ears. I saw people pass by arm in arm, laughing and chatting familiary as if they were at a festival” (Doc E). The second the French took death as a celebration became the second they drove the revolution to an end. The French Revolution would never have been able to properly form a democratic government because of the addiction to blood and revenge on their own
After taking office from his father in 2011, Kim Jong Un has systematically removed many of North Korea’s top officials including his uncle, a powerful second-in-command with a lot of influence throughout North Korea government and military, Chang Song Thaek, who was executed for alleged treason in 2013. With those facts put into consideration, the killing of Kim Jong Nam isn’t all that far-fetched, especially since Nam actually had royal blood coursing through his veins as a direct descendant of Kim Jong Il. The dictator even killed two birds with one stone. Kim Jong Nam’s murder erases other rivals of the Baekdu bloodline who could challenge Kim Jong Un: namely his nephew Kim Han-sol, the 22-year-old son of Kim Jong Nam, and his other siblings, Kim Jong Chul and Kim Yuh Jung
