This was just one of his strategies to bring America back together, and showed even more of his strong leadership skills. "One of the little known leadership styles that Lincoln used to his advantage...was his appointment of talented national figures from opposing parties to be part of his cabinet," (Stone 4). He had members from the loyal opposition inform him of the issues on each side. This strategie is what made him one of the best presidents, as he was mature, and did not let his personal views make him one-sided. Without a doubt, Abraham Lincolns best known contribution was the erosion of slavery.
Newell opens his essay by emphasizing how George Washington’s busy work schedule did not conflict with the seriousness of his civic duty. He quotes George Washington in his Farewell Address, “I beg you…to do me the justice to be assured that this resolution has not been taken without a strict regard to all the considerations appertaining to the relation which binds a dutiful citizen to his country” (1). Newell moves to praise George Washington due to the fact that he came out of retirement twice and none of that impacted his responsibility to his nation. He praises George Washington in order to demonstrate the ideal citizen, one who works hard and never forgets his civic duty. The appraisal of George Washington conveys an inspiring tone that forces the reader to remember the core values that this nation was built upon.
Gallant heroes must not back down from a challenge and an audacious hero will take risks to help commoners. Courageous heroes are brave because they are fearless and courageous heros also help out the public. According to Sam Adams, a hero of the revolutionary war once said “ The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” By saying this he showed he had respect for the american citizens and their beleifs. Sam was one of the most courageous heros because he was the first person to address the Boston Massacre, the day after the massacre happened! Samuel Adams is courageous because his respectful political views and he was well respected for his care for the american people, and he was the first to address the boston massacre.
The address was given during a time when the president of the country was not voted in but instead was selected. George Washington was a war hero and was a favored person by many in the country. Because of his incredible leadership skills and favor, he was chosen (not elected) to be president and lead the country. Washington quickly gets to the point in his speech and addresses the fact that he will deny the request for another term. He believes that the country will do well without him and that someone else will take his place as a great leader.

The impacts and criticalness of Bacon's Rebellion in history is that the administration in Virginia got to be startled by the risk of Civil War (the English Civil War was still crisp in everybody's memory). Bacon's Rebellion was the first insubordination in the American Colonies. Bacon's Rebellion and the Declaration of the People set a point of reference for future Americans to get uniformity. The Declaration of the People started the guideline of the assent of the general population. The disclosure of tobacco began the manor economy in Virginia and made an interest for shoddy work filled at first by poor, white Indentured hirelings and after that by dark slaves.
His actions sent a message that he was to be respected no matter what. Also, the fact that he contended with the top man drove his point home: he demanded respect. A man capable of capturing the respect and admiration of an army is a man capable of leading an army; inspiring them, stirring them to bravery, to courage, to wrath, to love, to sorrow, to indignation, to arms, to war. He understood the importance of the way the men viewed him, and knew exactly how to manipulate this to his advantage. Achilles was socially aware, whereas Agamemnon neglected his social
George Washington is indeed one of the best presidents our country has ever had. The citizen's adoration for him was endless, and his achievements and history still lives on today in our books and part of our education system. Washington did not start out to be a president, "He believed so strongly in that (running 2 terms only) concept that he refused to run for a third term." (Paragraph 3, Father of Our Nation), before his presidency, he was a general who fought at the front line of most battles. With such incredulous leadership skills, this lead him to becoming the well known Commander in Chief of the American Army.

In Washington’s 1911 memoir: My Larger Education: Being Chapters from My Experience, Carver was given praise. Washington claimed carver to be “one of the most thoroughly scientific men of the [Black] race who I am aquatinted.” The next leader of the Tuskegee institute, who took over after Washington’s 1915 death, was a lot less strict and demanding as Washington. In 1930, Carver gave a very emotional speech at the 1930 Conclave in Tuskegee, Alabama. Carver started to work on and researching new uses for peanuts, pecans, sweet potatoes, Soybeans, and other crops. Carver also made his assistants research the existing uses of these crops.
The economy was bad because the king raised taxes but when they started making the tobacco plantations helped the economy out. The Native Americans learned how to make corn and they showed the Americans where to hunt. The pilgrims also did not
In the history books, George Washington was considered a great man because he was calm in battle. It was never far from his mind to envision himself as a hero and a conquistador. "There [was] a persistent feeling in his correspondence as well as in his children 's writings that people like Thomas Jefferson, who shied away from battle, were not completely men" (Hendrickson 342). For Hamilton, it wasn 't the blood, the pain, or the suffering of battle that made it appealing to him. Hamilton viewed it as a stage for him to act on, and to display the qualities of selfless courage that would win him the honor, love and respect he so
In my opinion George Washington is the strongest president.
