First, The Patriot movie was based off a lot of things that happened in history. Did you know that Benjamin Martin wasn’t really a… Opps I don’t think i should be saying anything yet. The Patriot was a powerful movie it had things I didn’t know about, but then had things that were lies and not right about The Patriot. This movie was somewhat historically accurate because of Benjamin Martin, Battle of Cowpens and Colonel Tavington. All facts in The Patriot really didn’t happen in history.
The militia was comprised of farmers who preferred the option of a war of massacre over being hurt by low tobacco prices and high taxes. The fight against Native Americans initiated in 1676, and encountered solely nonviolent Indians, but the group slaughtered them regardless. Bacon and his supporters demanded the power to declare war against all Native Americans, and received such authority from a daunted Governor Berkeley. Shortly after, Berkeley reconsidered his decision and called back the troop, but Bacon’s men retaliated by burning the capital of Jamestown and spared whoever joined the rebellion. However, in late 1676 Bacon died of dysentery; his cohorts dispersed and their actions
We often seen someone is only care about himself, they don’t care about others even their family and they always have excuse of it. Reverend Parris is a kind of this person. “The Crucible” is about the Salem witch trials. Starting with several young girls claim to be afflicted by witchcraft and then accuse people in the town of witchcraft. In The Crucible, Arthur Miller shapes Parris’s character as a very selfish person, and everything he did was to keep his good reputation in the village and to get rid of anyone against him, which drives him mad.
Starvation was a common form of resistance onboard the slave ships. Usually, if one slave refused to eat, others would follow. Slave captains punished those who refused to eat severely. Doctor Alexander Falconbridge recalls the ruthless methods of punishment: Upon the negroes refusing to take food, I have seen coals of fire, glowing hot, put on a shovel and placed so near their lips as to scorch and burn them. And this has been accompanied with threats of forcing them to swallow coals if they persisted in refusing to eat…I have also been credibly informed that a certain captain in the slave trade, poured melted lead on such of his negroes as he obstinately refused to eat.
The Theme of Justice in “Barn Burning” by William Faulkner William Faulkner’s short story Barn Burning focuses on Snopes’s famly, which is forced to have a roving life because of father’s behavior. The man shows clear signs of sociopathy and pyromania. At the end of the story the author mentioned that the man went to the war only “for booty - it meant nothing and less than nothing to him if it were enemy booty or his own” (Faulkner, n. d., p. 11). But this lawless position transformed into a burning sense of justice after the man turned to the civil life. The justice looks like the major issue of the plot, as Abner’s actions are explained by himself and his family as a response to an insult.
"’Cause I’m black…"(Steinbeck ch.4). This is the only time that we see crooks discussing how everyone on the ranch degrades him and discriminates him. Crooks is so oppressed by the society that he lives in, that he starts to opress himself and he seems to be depressed. Crooks never talks back to any of the ranch workers when they call him racial slurs to his face. Crooks either has a strong will to keep working here, or, he knows that he has no other choice than to go out alone and starve.
The Patriots say they are fighting for freedom and justice, but that freedom doesn’t include blacks like Ned. Hardly fair. But Patriots aren’t the only skin-specific people. The Loyalists killed a room of slaves, just because of their status. “‘There are some damned blacks in here, what shall we do with them?’ ‘Kill them,’” (144).
The Haitian Revolution was caused by oppressive slavery and discrimination against all but the French elite and led to the death of French and Haitians alike, the French’s expulsion from the island, and the spread of hope and freedom to other oppressed people all over the world. To start, the Haitian Revolution was started due to a variety of factors. But probably the most important one was slavery and oppression that was forced upon peoples from Africa who were imported to Haiti (Then Saint Domingue) and discriminated against even if they were free, just because of the color of their skin. To give context, from the years before 1791, slavery was incredibly harsh against slaves. The perpetrators of the cruelty were the French because they viewed themselves as superior and sons of the French Revolution that overthrew an oppressive government in France.
Douglass begins uses paradox to show how slavery was inhuman by acknowledging how slave overseers treated the slaves when did wrong or doing what was not told by them. ‘’ He would whip her to make her scream and whip her to make her hush.’’(page 5). Douglass appeals
Some of these cases could be whether or not Ulrick ever actually existed, if Hanna was a real person, or the amount of children the pope had. These details are most likely added, or left out for dramatic purposes or because it is irrelevant to Luther’s story. The people who watch it for entertainment aren’t really interested in how true to life it actually is, so historical accuracy isn’t that big of a deal for most. The movie Luther had a cast consisting of serious, well known and award-winning actors and they released it to theatres. This tells us that they wanted it to be shown to the general audience, and not only in church halls.
