We saw Lincoln as a savvy strategist, a man of great depth who could out-think and out-maneuver his opponents in a way that made him self-assured in his own ability to secure the ends he desired. Lincoln held strong moral convictions about right and wrong, and was not shy about pursuing them. To Lincoln, the end result was everything, and he was willing to achieve his outcome through almost any means. In our opinion, this pursuit of ends by any means was Lincoln’s most distinctive guiding philosophy. It made him a force, but someone who could only be trusted when his goals aligned with yours.

President Theodore Roosevelt opened the doors of opportunity for America when he began the progressive era during his presidency. Starting in 1890 the progressive era was a time in U.S. history that focused on utilizing the government to assist society with their struggles such as poverty, racism, work conditions, and much more. Roosevelt was the first of three progressive presidents but was definitely not the most progressive of them. Woodrow Wilson, the most progressive president, was ironically the one to put an unintentional end to the progressive era but made huge accomplishments as well as some failures during his presidency leading him to become one of the best presidents that the U.S. has seen.
Do you think that every president should go to college? If a president doesn't go to college, do you think that they are educated enough to run our country. Truman didn't have a normal life he had to work hard for everything. He was very limited to what he could do during school. He worked many jobs throughout his lifetime but still had time for his wife and to run for president and became the 33rd president of the United States.
I believe Truman was right in his actions of commencing the dropping of weapons of mass destruction against the Empire of Japan. While morally it may have been carried out in a better way, that's a debate for a different time. There are three reasons I would like to clarify to show why I believe it was the right decision. The Japanese did not believe in surrender.
Esmé Hassell-Thean Mr. Blenner AP United States History 12th of March 2016 The controversial politics of Theodore Roosevelt.

Despite the common goal during World War II of defeating the Germans, shortly before the end of the war and continuing afterwards, the Allies’ differences of opinion began to emerge. At the Yalta Conference in the U.S.S.R., Josef Stalin, President Franklin Roosevelt and Prime Minister Winston Churchill, the leaders of three Allied Nations met to plan on how to deal with the post war aftermath. Poland, which the Germans had invaded earlier on, had been liberated by the U.S.S.R. as they were on their way to Germany. Stalin had encouraged the Poles to set up a Communist government due to the fact that he wanted to spread the idea of Communism and have a government that would allow Russia to use the land as a barrier against Germany, who had frequently
As a history buff, having dinner with an influential character in American History is more like a dream rather than a hypothetical question. There are so many greats and personal favorites in our history to choose from like Harper Lee, Abraham Lincoln, or Thomas Paine. Although, when I consider only choosing one American figure to have dinner with and engage in conversation about current issues, one man stands out to me: Theodore Roosevelt. I imagine dinner with him to be a night of endless entertainment and compelling conversation. We would eat old fashioned chicken fried steak with gravy and talk about the wilds days when he was cattle rancher and a deputy sheiff, but also his days as a United States
