Intro Growing up, we have all heard the many stories of George Washington. While many recognize him as one of the most important figures in U.S history, others only recognize him by one of his multiple accomplishments; he was the 1st president of the United States. With presidency comes the variety of duties and responsibilities, the main being a president 's inaugural adress. In George Washington 's very 1st inaugural, he uses three rhetorical strategies: personification, amplification, and last but not least, repitition to convey what he truly wants for the States and why a successful Constitution should be in order. Historical Background Before Mr. Washington was even elected into presidency, he was a politician and a soldier.
Who was the only president to serve four terms? Who was the only president to contract Polio? Thats right, FDR. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was born January 30, 1882 in Hyde Park, New York. Franklin was the only child to James and Sara Roosevelt.
“There is nothing I love as much as a good fight.” an interesting thought to be uttered from a president like that of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR had to push and fight through a lot, not a surprise coming from someone who not only looked up to but was related to Theodore Roosevelt. I believe Franklin Roosevelt to be the greatest president we have ever had, taking on the responsibilities of presidency for 12 years through the Great Depression and World War II, fighting disease the entire time. Roosevelt battled with polio through his entire presidency until it killed him shortly after being elected for a fourth term, the only president to achieve such a feat. Franklin Roosevelt is accredited with guiding the United States out of The Great Depression with his New Deal programs as
He retired on July 10, 1920, and was the third Nova Scotian to hold this office. Borden died in Ottawa due to congestive heart failure on June 10th, 1937. Without Borden’s crucial efforts during World War I, Canada would have never been an independent power. After successfully becoming Prime Minister, Borden promised not to use conscription. However, after a period of time, there were fewer Canadian recruits, and he decided conscription would be necessary
Although the Progressive movement was highly influenced American politics, it was only effective during the terms of certain presidents and over certain people. Presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt, William Taft, Woodrow Wilson, and Franklin Roosevelt were all presidents that used the Progressive movement to influence American politics. They all believed that moral reform, an expansion of democracy, and regulation of the economy was the goal for America. Throughout all of their terms, each president changed and added to American society and politics based off of the Progressive view. Theodore Roosevelt was the first Progressive president who made huge adjustments to the American political system while in office.
George Washington is an important character in American history because he had a huge impact on the founding and governing of America. He was known for his political ideas, outstanding leadership style, and revolutionary plans. He was a commander in the American Revolution and because of him, in 1783, America won independence from Great Britain. He assisted in establishing a basis for the modern day US Government and oversaw the Constitution of 1787 being written. Washington was elected president of the United States on April 30, 1789 and remained in office until March 4, 1797.
Many American leaders were scientists and inventors during the Enlightenment Era. George Washington, however, is best known as America’s first president. Before then, his career was occupied as a surveyor. It was quite the same way for Thomas Jefferson, the third president. His interests were logical studies of nature, such as anatomy, anthropology, botany, meteorology, and physics.
Thomas Jefferson ran for the presidential election in 1800 and was finally elected in 1801 to become the third United States President. Before this win, he ran in the prior election, lost to John Adams, and then became vice president because of his second place finish. Among those accomplishments he also was a Founding Father, a champion of democracy, and he wrote most of the Declaration of Independence. His win was the first Republican victory after the first twelve years of Federalist presidencies. Brinkley (2012) wrote they envisioned a society of sturdy, independent farmers, happily free from the workshops, industrial towns and city mobs of Europe.
The first American president,One of the greatest men who walked this earth, a man who achieve some of the greatest title that a lot of people can 't achieve in today 's world. He is known for being the commander of chief in the continental army also known for a gentleman planter and many more titles. Plenty of people look at him daily and might not even know who he is or why is he on money. But I 'm here to explain and to break it down for you! BIOGRAPHICAL George Washington the son of Augustine Washington and Mary Ball.
Though our forefathers had the intention of the legislative branch to be the most important; it would appear, due to the introduction of mass media, that the president is the most important branch of government. However, the legislative branch was functioning before the first president was even elected. Platez shows the huge role the legislative branch initially served, “The Continental Congress took the king’s power to handle war, peace, send and receive ambassadors, enter into treaties or alliances, and to coin money.” (Platez, Owen, and Cook, 2012.) Though the legislative branch still holds a huge amount of power, the mass media seem to focus a lot more on the executive branch. A popular hypothesis of why the media outlets choose to focus on the president over the legislative and judicial branch is because it is easier to blame a single person rather than a group of people.
