President George Washington had to be brave in order to make the bold decisions that he had to make when facing one of the worlds largest, and well put together armies of the world. While the British army had men who have been trained to fight and win, the confederate army had nothing but farmers, blacksmiths, and maybe even some bakers. Not to mention, that some of these men that were being recruited to fight along side of Washington had never even held a gun before. Yet, he was able to see things that no one else could see, he knew that there was a way to win their freedom. He knew that it was going to take time, effort, and lots and lots of training.

In other words, presidents are not obligated to follow public opinion, two reasons for this being: presidents are not directly elected by the people and doing so could be a danger to society.
In the Elizabethan Era, there were a lot of weapons and wars. Weapons were to protect people and to fight in wars. If we never had weapons in this period of time, there wouldn’t be as many idea we could have came up with to make other weapons. During the Elizabethan Era, Spain and France treated England to start a war. England wasn't the type of country to start a war and the trained military men felt uncomfortable using small weapons so Queen Elizabeth I immediately advanced the strength and the agility of the weapons.
The delegates that were included in the convention are well-known figures of American history, such as George Washington. Washington was among the first people to recognize the weakness in the Articles of Confederation. His involvements in the revolution war had convinced him that, the government was unable to feed, accommodate, supply, or pay the army, which was more than enough to convince him that the central government needed more power to raise money and essential to maintain such an extended nation.Therefore, George Washington believed in a central
There are always two sides of an argument, in this case for ratifying the constitution there were the Federalist and the Anti-Federalist. Federalist wanted to ratify the constitution because a powerful government would help many individuals under it, “The constitution would find its supporters among the farmers and workingmen of the nation, of course. Urban artisans and small shopkeepers saw the advantages of a government powerful enough to increase commerce and trade. And backcountry subsistence farmers facing hostile Indians and their Spanish allies on state borders saw the virtue in a government strong enough to repel frontier enemies or negotiate favorable international treaties”(pg 173). Furthermore, the only people that opposed it were the wealthy and educated which were the very few in the nation, they even wanted a new constitution but not the one being

The American Civil War produced a unique period of opportunity for Northern businessmen during the war. The length of the struggle and the 2 million men that the North put into the field created a huge demand for small arms during the war. During this time businessmen scrambled to obtain arms from Europe, acquire domestic supplies of weapons, create factories to produce weapons and develop new small arms. The ability of the federal government to provide these weapons is one of the most important events of the war. Without these weapons the war may have lasted longer ended in Confederate victory.
3 However, Gandhi was dedicated to the ideal of a united India. It was under his guidance that mass nationalism was truly seen in a country as vast as India. Gandhi’s arrival in India was during World War I (1914-18). It was at this time that Britishers increased taxes on goods in India, raised prices of industrial and imported goods and food crops while that of exported Indian raw materials did not increase at the same pace, and also forcibly recruited Indians in the army to fight the war. Because the Britishers were busy with war, they were also not able to look into the conditions of Indians, leading to failure of crops, spread of epidemic diseases and death of many.
Nations struggled to keep their people invested in the fight, and subliminal phrases and images became the key to sway citizens. Posters would highlight images of the ideal man, masculine and strong, subliminally instructing others to “do their duty” and protect their homeland. This was prior to the establishment of laws that could coerce citizens to serve in the armed forces, meaning that most countries had to rely strictly on volunteers. Encouraging as many men as possible to join was vital to many war efforts, and this consistent use of propaganda made those who refrained from enlisting feel inferior and cowardly. This resulted in many successfully drafting into the military forces (“Posters”).

The fight for American independence is the most significant event in history because it helped smaller nations rebel against their mother country, the seven years ' war was over power and land from the French and England, not the colonies, our country shouldn 't have to repay the war debts for England, and the colonies deserve to have a land to call their own. In the beginning, the British colony had experienced a peaceful life under the British rule. Unlike England, the colonies are owned by a majority of low impoverished citizens or peasants that survived on selling goods to provide
