The inauguration had two main purposes in the speech which are the spirit of reunion and the meaning of war in which it has received criticism. The spirit of unity of the nation is emphasized in the address and it is also shown in the “We must not be enemies.” (Waugh page 406) “His wife, Mary whom he accompanied to church, observed religion was a kind of poetry in his nature.” (Rawley page 162) Mary Lincoln describes religion as second nature to Abraham Lincoln. Religion was an element in his Second Inauguration as a part to reunite the South and the North, Lincoln wrote “Both read the same Bible, and pray to the same God; each invokes His aid against the other.” Religion was used on the address by Lincoln to bring together the nation and to overcome the problem of slavery instead of using religion against each
“The Gettysburg Address” is specifically made up to this point in time in our nation’s gruesome history.

Not for their courage, but for their efforts to shape America so that we can make it a better place and a safe haven so that all men can have equal

After killing Grendel, Beowulf’s men describe him as “the mighty protector of men” and “Edgetho’s brave son.” Since Beowulf defeated a monster that no other man could kill, Beowulf is immediately heralded as a hero. Beowulf’s pride and respect both drastically increase after his fight with Grendel. Hrothgar is the first to inform Beowulf of his terrible flaw that could potentially leave him in danger. When Beowulf is warned of his prideful nature by Hrothgar, he mentions Beowulf’s strength and how it is “in bloom” but reminds him “it fades quickly” Hrothgar pleads to Beowulf, “Do not take pride.” (1760-62). Beowulf must take into account how fleeting his pride
“As whence the sun ’gins his reflection ship wrecking storms and direful thunders [break,] So from that spring whence comfort seemed to come” (2.1.27-30).

They 're savages with bows and arrows '" (The Last 00:30:24).The Colonel immediately assumes that the Samurai are powerless natives that follow a primitive lifestyle and will be easily crushed by the Imperial Army. Algren, however, is not so sure of this, but Bagley initiates the attack regardless of Algren 's input. The little respect that the Colonel shows for the Samurai demonstrates ethnocentrism because the Colonel believes the Americans are superior to the Japanese. During the 18th and 19th century imperializing nations ' only concern was profit, so they exploited and manipulated the less modernized countries. Although Algren has a less rude outlook on the Samurai, in one scene of the movie Algren says to Katsumoto, "‘There was once a battle at a place called Thermopylae, where three hundred brave Greeks held off a Persian army of a million men... a million, you understand this number '" (The Last 02:10:31).This quote demonstrates that the imperialists believe that the foreigners are not educated.
The rule of the conch was the first rule established by the assembly. Breaking the conch led to the end of civility on the island. People’s voices can no longer heard. Jack’s philosophy of having no rules is ultimately what kills Piggy and Simon.The boys would continue to harm others because without rules, they cannot be controlled. Their deaths give Jack more power and therefore
The conch shell, representing law and order, assisted in the election of Ralph as chief and ultimately determines the future of the island. However, as time progresses, the conch shell loses its power, when which allows Jack to rise as chief of his tribe. The conch eventually becomes only a reminder of how rational the boys used to be. Once the conch shell shatters and Piggy dies due to Roger’s illogical decision of triggering the lever and releasing the boulder, the era of rationality completely ends, marking the beginning of a complete savage takeover. At first, the conch represents democracy, power, and civilized behaviors, but in the end, the destruction of the conch shell illustrates the innate evil in human beings and the abrupt end of a civilization.
All the warriors appear in the Iliad join the battles as they value glory more than their life. Trojan War initially starts by the Trojan prince Paris as he kidnap Helen, the wife of Menelaus, the king of Mycenaean. Since the conflict is actually between Paris and Menelaus, other Greek warriors including Achilles and Odysseus did not need to join the war.

Now after, people began to see the United States as a united nation. Grant was aiming to take down Vicksburg as it was one of the last two strongholds left in the confederate states. However, he wanted this one more because it would grant him the ability to control all water traffic in that area with their weapons an control that land for a long time.

Foul language, which I won 't repeat. In fact, I’d rather not say anything at all. (29). Most of John’s problems relate to his experiences in My Lai, where his platoon was ordered to eliminate the “Viet Cong” in the village. Because the men had seen so much in Vietnam and because of how the war was fought (Guerrilla warfare), they had little to no remorse when gunning down children and woman.
In the book Smith writes about the presidencies such as the following George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and George W. Bush. The book starts off with the following quote said by Jean Bethke Elshtain, “’Separation of church and state is one thing. Separation of religion and politics is another thing altogether.
