Many things happened during this timeline like in 1773 the Boston tea party happened, in 1776 the declaration of independence was signed, in 1787 the writing of the constitution began, in 1783 the treaty of Paris ended the revolutionary war. Also, many diseases went on during this war, including more things for example: we were the Continental army, many people deserted to not fight in the war, scarlet fever was one of the best known diseases, Howe's army quartered in Philadelphia, valley forge was a camp 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia, quakers were people who fed the Continental army. The first reason I will re-enlist is because of family. Family is a very important thing to remember.
Hope was being lost, once proud people, now thought to themselves that they were cursed. To draft Indians and not call them, “The First American Citizen,” (Page 126) is very clearly disrespectful and dehumanizing. Wassaja wanted these words spoken to the “Washington father”, to spark some sort of fire. Hoping to show proof that the Native American deserved to be an American equal. That would then let them proudly call this country “
In his “9/11 Address to the Nation” the 43rd President of the United States of America, George W. Bush assures that America will not be affected by the unruly and evil attacks carried out on September 11th, 2001. The President drafted this speech to resist the impending fear and questioning that American citizens around the country would soon be consumed by. Because 9/11 was the most impactful, yet devastating terrorist attack on the United States to date, Bush was not able to derive his thoughts from others’ ideas and speeches, thus he was forced to dig deep and extract the emotions and thoughts aroused by the “despicable acts.” Much like any great leader, President Bush wanted to stress the importance of instilling a sense of pride and resilience in the country and fellow countrymen and women to come together and remain as one. As the head of the “brightest beacon of freedom and opportunity” President George W. Bush declares that the United States of America will “remain strong” and appear unaffected as the country continues to build and rebound from the senseless acts of terrorism and hate.
The blue represents justice, and the stars represent reaching for the stars, and attempting to achieve greatness. The 13 stripes on the flag represent the original 13 colonies that were a part of the American Revolution and the creators of the country. Because the flag represents so much, there are many rules and procedures that must be
There is no other purpose for this. Our society should be more interested in the salary of our soldiers and we should support them, more than football icons. There is one NFL football player who can help prove this. Pat Tillman was a linebacker for the Arizona Cardinals in 1998. When the United States invaded Afghanistan, Tillman decided to put his professional career on hold in order to join the U.S. military.
Why do stars represent our fifty states and the reason for them being white. Who made our flag and why did he or she design it the way it is today. I understand that only half of the states in America salute to the flag and I would like to know why. Finally, I want to learn about major events that our flag was in and when
Kim said frustrated “We need to do something”, I said to her “Let’s go somewhere quiet, so we can think clearly about this”, She came with me and we agreed on doing whatever is necessary to save the land. I asked some people and searched about it, I discovered that the government was taking it to build a new city hall. I thought it was ridiculous, they don’t need a new city hall and shouldn’t destroy something important to some people. We organized a strike and everyone went to the garden. There were more than a thousand persons fighting against the government to keep the garden.
Kneeling during the national anthem is a form of peacefully protesting instead of choosing to stay silent and not have a voice. Former NFL player Colin Kaepernick who is currently a free agent brought the attention to “kneeling during the national anthem” when he decided to take a knee during a preseason game. Him kneeling brought an uproar of people who believed he was being “disrespectful” and “unpatriotic”, others believed he was being “brave” and a “hero”. Kaepernick had a reason for doing so, he was standing up for social justice and police brutality again African Americans. Significance of The Flag
The South refused to acknowledge this day, as they found they should be able to honor the veterans on separate days. Their thoughts later changed after the war. Although, the North immediately accepted Memorial day. Many cities today have a parade, marching soldiers fill the streets with firefighters, cops, and other service jobs. Thousands of U.S. Citizens do crowd the streets, holding the American flag, singing songs, and giving out flowers.

Andrew was a strong believer of what they stand for and always participated in their meetings and peaceful protest. The Sons of Liberty started only about a few months ago, however they are already playing a major role in battling against the Stamp Act. They take the protests of the British taxes to the streets, where they burn decks of cards, newspapers, magazines, and legal documents. The Sons of Liberty use intimidation to get the tax collectors to quit their jobs. Not only has the Sons of Liberty taken action, but so has others colonists.
her exact words stated, "I cannot believe that we do not have the heart in this body,to do something meaningful, such as take a symbol of hate off these grounds on Friday. " After half a day of legislative battle, the House then passed the bill. On July 9, Haley signed the bill into law with nine pens, one for each of the victims killed at Emanuel AME Church. On July 10, two members of the South Carolina state highway patrol, took down the flag and then handed it to Leroy Smith, director of South Carolina 's Department of Public Safety.

“In your hands, my dissatisfied fellow-countrymen, and not in mine,” he said, “is the momentous issue of civil war.” That sentence epitomizes Abraham Lincoln’s entire approach to the issue of secession. He considered it a constitutional impossibility, and would never officially concede that it had been successfully accomplished. That’s why, when he directly addressed citizens of the states that three weeks before had installed Jefferson Davis as president of what they claimed to be a separate nation, Lincoln still spoke of them as “my dissatisfied fellow-countrymen.” I think that the speech of Abraham Lincoln is more appealing as he did not considered the South as his
Beyond the British and their warships in Boston Harbor, black smoke rose above the city. John Quincy and Abigail were deeply affected by this. The British had won the hill and the battle, but they did have many soldiers and officers die, unlike the Americans. This gave the Americans courage knowing that they could stand up to the British.
