Imagine living during the time of the Civil War. Now imagine being a teenager through the Civil War, and your father was fighting that war. “Little Women” is a book that expresses the emotion of four young sisters while their father is away at war. Each young lady has their own job ad way to keep everything orderly at home. This story by Louis May Alcott is said to have been her life with her sisters and that she was the character Jo.
After hearing this, President Woodrow Wilson had told the German government to stop sinking unarmed and neutral ships. For a while Germany had agreed, but soon went back to their previous methods and further turned the U.S. opinion against them. The United States broke diplomatic relations with Germany, and the American ship Housatonic was sunk by a German U-boat hours later. That seemed to be the straw that broke the camel’s back, and the United States started preparing to enter the war. During that time, Germany sank four more American ships.
The Spanish forcefully took control of the empire and brutally murdered the emperor (Inca Empire - Google Sites). The Spanish arrived in 1532 on the conquest of Peru led by Francisco Pizarro in the city of Cajamarca and they were probably interested in the Inca empire due to it astonishing high economy (Inca Empire - Google Sites). The Spanish only came with 110 men and 67 horsemen and met with the Sapa Inca Atahualpa who thought that the meeting was peaceful and that the Spanish were showing their respect to him (The Fall of the Inca Empire). However, his belief was proven incorrect very quickly when he got captured for not swearing loyalty to the King of Spain and Pope and throwing the bible on the floor. The Spanish then went on to kill and capture Incan soldiers and Atahualpa probably realised then that the Spanish were after gold and silver and were not there for peace.
He did punish hard, fast and all at once countless times during the holocaust and he was loved by his people but feared by his enemies. However, the only way he was not a “real prince” was by keeping most of his promises to his people, but this did not stop his rise to power, it merely helped him. With all of this information we can see that Hitler indeed followed the manual of Nicolo Machiavelli, “The Prince” to become one of the most remembered leaders of all
The purpose for the killing was to break off Austria-Hungary’s south slavs provinces so they could be combined into a yugoslavia. The prince was Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his assassination basically lead to WW1. Austria-Hungary then declared war after the assassination of prince Archduke and his wife Sophie. When Austria-Hungary declared war upon Serbia, Serbia then called their big brothers Russia. Russia then declared
Though Serbia accepted all but two of the ultimatum’s terms, and Russia declared its intention to back Serbia in the case of such a conflict, Austria-Hungary went ahead with its war declaration against Serbia on July 28, one month after the assassinations. June 28 was Franz Ferdinand’s wedding anniversary, but now we know it as the last straw that allowed WWI to occur. His beloved wife, Sophie, a former lady-in-waiting, was denied royal status in Austria due to her birth as a poor Czech aristocrat In Bosnia, however, due to its limbo status as an annexed territory, Sophie could appear beside him at official proceedings. On June 28, 1914, then, Franz Ferdinand and Sophie were touring Sarajevo in an open car, with minanume little security, when Serbian nationalist Nedjelko Cabrinovic threw a bomb at their car; it rolled off the back of the vehicle and wounded an officer and some bystanders. Later that day, on the way to visit the injured officer, the archduke’s procession took a wrong turn where one of Cabrinovic’s cohorts, 19-year-old Gavrilo Princip, happened to be
Upon their arrival, as they were heading towards the city hall, the “Black Hand” member threw a hand grenade at the emperor’s car but missed and hit another car. On their way back to the palace, Gavrilo Princip, a young nationalist, triggered his gun that caused the death of Franz and Sophie. After the assassination of emperor Franz Ferdinand, other countries started to question the Serbian government for the incident and for the movements of the nationalist. Austria-Hungary declared war against Serbia to fight for their independence and with the alliance of Serbia with Russia, they declared war with the Hungarians and Germany declared war with Russia and lastly, Britain and France declared war against Hungary and Germany that started the World War I in 1914. During the 4 years of World War I, there was an estimate death of 17 million people and about 20 or more million wounded (pbs, n/a).
“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.” Within the World Wars’, deaths in the battlegrounds were not the only lives countries lost; World War I and World War II caused the immense loss of souls (Souls Wars) by the productions of deaths in battlefields and in genocides. Significantly, World War I started the entire flood of deaths within a chain effect. For instance, the war all started with the assassination of a duke of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, “On June 28, 1914, a young Serbian nationalist named Gavrilo Princip killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, in Sarajevo, Bosnia… the assassination set off a chain of events that would lead to the start of World War I barely one month later.” An act of terrorism commenced the succession of innocent lives lost; thus, commencing the Souls Wars. One death between two countries launched the start of millions of deaths and instituted the first hatred of countries rivaling against each other. Among that, alliances were made by countries choosing which side of war they wanted to fight for, “Wilson warned the Germans that he would hold them to account if any American ships were sunk.
