“Assassination” states that the doctor reacted quickly by ripping the President’s shirt open for a physical examination, but Leale could not find the bullet wound. With that diagnosis, the focus shifted from saving the President to moving him out of Ford’s Theater (2009). “Abraham” states that Lincoln was transported to a home across the street and placed in a bed. Lincoln’s Vice President, Cabinet, and friends assembled in the house. When the Surgeon General arrived at the home, he said that Lincoln would not survive the night.
Martin Luther king was a baptist minister and social activist who died on April 4, 1968. One of the reasons on why Dr. King’s assassination was unjust was because he was unarmed. He was standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis Tennessee. He was preparing a speech about the Sanitation Workers. The sanitation workers strike was a strike that 1,300 black men took because of the neglect the city had towards them on the long term abuse they suffered.
Scout is faced with racism and hypocrisy in the town as her father defends an African American man who has been accused of raping a white girl. The main setting in the story “To Kill a Mockingbird” is Maycomb County, Alabama. It takes place in the 1930’s. Maycomb is a “tired old town” (Lee 6) during the Great Depression. The streets “turned to red slop” in the rain, and “grass grew on the sidewalks” (6).

"The year when all of the white political crooks will be right back in your and my community with their false promises, building up our hopes for a letdown, with their trickery and their treachery, with their false promises which they don't intend to keep." He is trying to create anger within the audience so that they will want to take action. Later on, Malcolm X begins talking about Uncle Sam (a personification of the US Government) and how he has lost all of his conscience. He states, "Uncle Sam's hands are dripping with blood, dripping with the blood of the black man in this country." He is trying to get across the suffering that African Americans have been going through, and what the real cause of this suffering is.
In The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, Miller uses one of his main characters, Abigail, to cause fear among the townspeople due to witchcraft. Abigail takes advantage of everyone's fear, and gets the townspeople to turn against each other or to take her side, however in the end the results are disastrous as 19 people are left dead and many remain in prison due to the accusations. Arthur Miller does this to demonstrate to his audience the dangers of using fear to motivate an audience to confront a threat. On the other hand, Franklin D. Roosevelt uses the Pearl Harbor incident to cause fear among his audience. Roosevelt uses his audience's fear of being attacked unexpectedly, like the Pearl Harbor incident, in hope to persuade them to support the war and volunteer to go to war, and the result left over 100,000 military personnel dead at the end of the war.
Danforth uses his authority as a blockade against any resistance that not even John Proctor can break through. His desire to expel witchcraft caused the law to become unjust with no hope of preventing the trials. McCarthy and the senate used the same tactic in the 1950's during the Red Scare. In her speech, "A Declaration of Conscience", senator Margaret Chase Smith accuses the senate of hunting communists with no regard for the truth or the complaints of the American people. The HUAC continuing to perform hearings after criticisms from the senate resulted in a mass panic and hundreds of wrongly accused people.
Brutus uses pathos in his speech by talking about slavery. He says, “Who is here so base that would be a bondman?,” “Who is here so rude that would not be a Roman?”, and “Who is here so vile that will not love his country?” At the end of Antony's first big speech, he uses pathos by saying, “...And I must pause till it come back to me.” Antony has to stop because he was getting emotional over the death of his friend. He also uses pathos when he begins to point out the wounds on Caesar’s body, descends to an equal level with the citizens, and when he says, “If you have tears, prepare to shed them now.” Shakespeare wrote this work with many emotions, but he still uses logos in Antony's
While on a plantation, Olaudah Equiano was sent inside the estate to fan his ill master and when he walked in he saw a black woman which had on an iron muzzle that “locked her mouth so fast that she could scarcely speak; and could not eat or drink” (Equiano 21). Further along in Equiano’s narrative he wrote about another instance of physical abuse in chapter five, he said he saw a black man who was “beaten til some of his bones were broken” (Equiano 46) just for letting a pot boil over. Today treatment like this would be deemed completely illegal, unethical, and unacceptable and yet this is only a handful of examples from his text that prove this to be an anti-slavery
complex and multi-layered . . .” (cited in Morgan 145-146). The colonisers spent years creating bleach chemicals for “denegrification” so that they can save a black man from the curse of being black as the black skin is unclean. Fanon finds himself suffering from schizophrenia and many disorders as a result of the white man’s harsh treatment.
On March 5, 1770 a street fight occurred between a mob of Boston citizens and British soldiers. The soldiers were increasingly unwelcome in Boston so the citizens threw snowballs, stones, and sticks at the group of soldiers who had been stationed here- the soldiers retaliated. The citizens were very outnumbered and the fight resulted in five deaths and six injuries from Boston. Samuel Adams and the Sons of Liberty named this event the Boston Massacre. The morning after, John Adams was sitting in his law office when Paul Revere revealed an engraving that showed Thomas Preston (captain of the British soldiers) ordering troops to fire at point blank range on the citizens.
Our client, Lee Logan, resides at 55 Bogus Hill Road, New Fairfield, Connecticut. Logan is concerned that his neighbors’ twelve-foot, wooden, stockade fence will damage his prize-winning dahlias and would like an injunction for its removal. About year ago, the Prestons moved into the house adjacent to Logan’s home. When the Prestons went to introduce themselves, Logan was sick in bed and the maid greeted them instead. Logan believes this incident led the Prestons to think negative of him because he heard rumors that the Prestons were calling him a “rich snob.” Logan’s house faces east, and the Prestons’ home is to the south.
He found some of his countrymen and asked what was going on and they told him they are being carried to the white people’s country to work for them. The boat lacked fresh air and it was so hot and unbearable that people became sick and died. When the boat reached the Barbados, the white men examined them and told them they would be put to work. When it was time to sell the slaves, the buyers rushed and picked the ones they liked best. The slaves got separated making it the last time they may ever see each other
