. . shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him?,” and then himself answers, “Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away.” The question-answer form of rhetoric, a hypophora, allows Lincoln to put forth his point of divine retribution. By allowing the audience to silently mull over the question and then affirming their thoughts, he successfully drives home his points against slavery and for unity. In the third paragraph of Lincoln’s speech, we find an anastrophe in the example “That of neither has been answered fully,” when referring to the prayers of the Union and Confederacy.
There's been a fair amount of president's in the United States. I remember when I was younger and i found out there'd been a lot of presidents, I almost immediately asked, "who was the strongest?" I soon found out who that was in the third grade when I learned all about Abraham Lincoln. I think Abraham Lincoln was America's strongest president because he perservered through a civil war, he repaired the country afterwards and brought us back together again as a nation, and he abolished slavery in the United States. Imagine you'd just become the principle of a high school.

He was reelected for a second term and was proposed to become the President for a third from 1797, which he did not accept. This gesture Washington established, a habit of non-acceptance of the third term for following presidents until Franklin D. Roosevelt whom was elected for three terms.

The era of Andrew Jackson which was nicknames the era of the “common man” certainly lived up to its name. As the seventh President of the United States, Jackson had a major effect on the life of the common man, in such a way that the life of the common man would never be the same again. Jackson’s aim, after the manner in which he was defeated in the Presidential Election of 1824, despite receiving more popular votes than John Quincy Adams who took on the office, was to reduce the power and the authority of the elite. When he came into power after the 1828 election Jackson began to carry out his proposals.

Based on John Tyler unexpected Presidency in 1841, he should be ranked with a 4.5. Though he was a slave owner and joined the Confederate State Congress during the civil war, he still had a very strong will during his Presidency that positively all Presidents after him.

President John Tyler did not have much of any goals when he was inaugurated because he was serving as vise president before President William Henry Harrison died, but he did have some major accomplishments. At the beginning of office he had himself immediately sworn in which set a precedent for all Vice Presidents who became President.

The war was unavoidable, the South needed slaves and the North didn’t do much to stop it.
Kings goes on to say how racial equality can not be achieved until “...justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream” (King). He deliberately tries to make the audience feel as if racial segregation is both wrong and against basic morals. Martin Luther King’s most famous speech, “I Have a Dream” was the changing point for racism in America. It managed to inspire a generation of blacks to never give up and made thousands of white Americans feel ashamed of their actions. To make the speech effective, King uses all three rhetoric concepts to make his speech stronger.
