During the course of American History there have been three major’s events that accord which changed American society and the way we live today. The Some historians (as well as I) strongly belive that the Battle of Trenton was an important event, because troop morale was at its lowest; the rebels hadn 't yet won a battle. The Continental troop 's one-year commitment would expire in 3 days, and Washington would have virtually no army. His gutsy move to cross the Delaware on Christmas Day to attack the Hessians at Trenton resulted in a victory that boosted the morale of the troops. In part, supported by the Battle of Princeton on the heels of the Trenton victory resulted in a major patriot enlistment, hence preserving the army and the future
Lewis and Clark were known for an incredible journey that changed US history. The journey increased the size of the US dramatically. From May 14, 1804, to September 23, 1806, a dangerous but yet history changing exploration occurred. Through many dangerous situations and hardships, the expedition of Lewis and Clark turned out a success.
After the war started, many of the men enlisted in the militia. The militia was like a part-time job; if they needed you in the war, they would call you over. The militia had a variety of men, like: farmers, preachers, tradesmen, but they were not trained for the army. But they had great leaders to lead them who were Benedict Arnold and George Washington.
Despite losing the fort, troops and material captured by the British, Washington’s retreat into Pennsylvania set the stage for the future battles of Trenton and Princeton, both of which significantly accelerated the loss of morale caused by the defeat at Fort
The Battle of Trenton was a turning point for George Washington and his army, and his decision to attack the Hessians was a strategic move that earned the Continental Army a desperately needed victory after a string of losses. In source one, the author states “With great boldness, Washington formulated a plan to strike by surprise at the Hessian garrisons at Trenton and Bordentown on Christmas night, when the troops might be expected to relax their guard for holiday revelry” (Stewart). Washington’s shrewd plan to surprise-attack the Hessians allowed the Continental Army to begin their ascend to victory. In source three, Washington states, “That even a Failure cannot be more fatal than to remain in our present Situation in short some Enterprize
There were many events that occurred over the course of the first hundred years of the United States history. Several events changed the path of America as well as many wars. This nation once run by slavery changed our laws through documents to give equal rights and protections to an ethnic group once perceived as ‘less than human.’ These are only a few things that happened To the United States from the time of 1776 to 1870. The country was in a spiral of many ups and downs, but managed to stay on top of everything and make sure the country was even more successful than before.

The reason why it was was because of the casualties, the letters from Robert E. Lee, and the Gettysburg Address. I believe the reason why it was a turning point was because the Union was bigger and stronger and well prepared and that General Lee gave up and that Abraham Lincoln wanted us to remember the soldiers and bring our country back
In chapter 21, America was influenced by World War I from 1913 to 1917. At this time, America struggled with Latin America such as Dominican Republic, Mexico, even though Wilson would handle some problems well during the his presidency. After The Great War broke out in Europe, America didn’t care about Europe. However, America just stood in neutrality based on Wilson’s announcement, and they supported some countries which were not The Triple Alliance through finances and some resources that would help in the war. At this time, Europe was separated by two organizations.
As each year passes in America, life continuously changes through the advancement of technology. However, a more important change in America is seen through the attitudes and actions of the people. In today's society, people place more concern toward their own needs; furthermore, people are becoming increasingly violent with others. In addition, not only are people hurting each other but also themselves through extensive drug usage.

In the number 5 spot for the most important events in U.S. history in my opinion is The Civil War. I think that because it was an important for america war it took place from 1861 to 1865. It was the war for the survival of the union or the independence for confederacy. It was between the north and the south about slavery and all the other problems that were happening at the time. For the fourth spot on the list I would have to say 9/11.
During the history we have experimented changes that prove the human evolution. Perhaps, we make history every day, but none of that can be possible without the brave people that change things and prepare the world for us in the past. This class opened my eyes to the ideals that every American should have, and how to stop the conformism that we still experimenting every day. The idea of commenting one topic of positive or negative impact is impossible because every event, good or bad, lead us to the powerful and free nation we live.

This last summer I had the privilege to reenact an important part of history - the pioneer journey west. Although my trek was somewhat difficult, I had many great experiences. Pulling and pushing a heavily laden pioneer handcart 7 miles a day for 4 days was difficult. But surprisingly, the hardest part of the experience for me was enduring the modern day 12 hour long car ride back. Being cooped up with a bunch of 12 year old boys who incessantly sang along to Taylor Swift was torturous.
