Also the Declaration of Independence caused the war by angering the British in 1776. I strongly agreed with this document that gave us freedom but the British did not sadly. So I joined Washington to fight the war. I remember when we had victories at the early wars like at Princeton and Trenton which gave me as well as other soldiers hope for winning more battles. The first reason I will re-enlist is the hope that Thomas Paine gave all of us.
All I’m trying to say is that this is our chance to free America from Britain. I wouldn’t care If i were on the verge of dying I will fight till my last breath and keep my heart towards the truth. We are an amazing country and we deserve to be free and that is why I am Reenlisting. Because this is my duty to protect our country from Britain’s unfair rule. The question “Would you Re- Enlist” is significant because it shows who will stand for America or back down.
The idea of using a draft or calling up of individuals into the armed services of America has been around since the late middle 1800’s. This draft of people to serve is known to the world as conscription. While there have been multiple controversies and debates of this heated topic, both sides seem to have an equally important point to prove which has led to the subject never being actually settled. I feel that reinstating the draft would be an important asset to the United States of America, and in many cases I believe that if a military draft were in place we could save a lot of lives and win more battles as a nation. A mandatory military draft for the United States of America should be reinstated so that every person in this country whether rich or poor joins in to help defend their county in time of need.
The combined efforts of our strength, with the help of the French will prove to be the key to winning this war. The Committee of Correspondence will signal the beginning of this war, when the British are seen off the shore the signal for war will be initiated throughout the colonies. Lexington and Concord, the first of many battles to decide the fate of the Americas led by patriot farmers. Bunker Hill was a battle that showed the British the strength and determination of the patriots, they would not give in to the rule of Parliament or the king any longer. General George Washington forced the British out of Boston with the help of Henry Knox and a small group of men who captured hundreds of pounds in canons from Fort Ticonderoga and brought
As cannon balls flew threw the sky, I knew I had to save my country. My family heard about our glory, that we won Trenton. I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are family, glory and freedom.These three reasons are very important, especially for us soldiers. Many things happened during this timeline like in 1773 the Boston tea party happened, in 1776 the declaration of independence was signed, in 1787 the writing of the constitution began, in 1783 the treaty of Paris ended the revolutionary war. Also, many diseases went on during this war, including more things for example: we were the Continental army, many people deserted to not fight in the war, scarlet fever was one of the best known diseases, Howe's army quartered in Philadelphia, valley forge was a camp 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia, quakers were people who fed the Continental army.
No generation before and after them could do the same, that’s why Brokaw named them the “Greatest Generation.” However, I cannot agree with him yet. I might change my mind as I read over the book, but so far, I think every generation has achieved its own part, and there is no “better” achievement. I agree that the generation who went through the WWII did great, but their work could not have been done if the first generation of America had not founded America. How about the generation of the Civil War? They abolished slavery and raised awareness of racial discrimination.
A few troops from either side were killed or wounded, but the colonists remain victorious in this battle. The Battle of Trenton was one of the battles that was a major turning point in the result of the war. The American colonists were forced to move out of New York City and off to somewhere else. The British had reclaimed the city. On December 26, 1776, Washington had made a plan to attack, knowing it was Christmas.
I myself, tend to steer clear of social media and even certain new cast, but I imagine in those time people did not have many options. They look to the news from these committees to know what was going on in the country. I believe that by doing this Samuel Adams became a key figure in the war to come and would even go as far as to say played a large hand in the winning of the war. In any conflict I believe information is key to a battel, these committees set up by Adams spread inland and carried the words of the patriots to towns all over the state. The American colonies would greatly use this resource during the war against the
At last, in the family of a strong Patriot such as the Sons & Daughters of Liberty were extremely, extremely radical and vigorous because they were the extreme Patriots who made propaganda and would tar and feather the tax collectors. Furthermore, their discussion also included reflection toward their protests and propaganda to inspire other colonists and the governors to take tenacious action much like themselves. The extreme Patriots were the beating heart all through the American Revolution and the events that led up to it. Without the strong, leading Patriots, the United States of America may not have ever existed. In conclusion, the discussion about the Stamp Act in a family of strong Patriot would be extremely vigorous and without them, there would have never been an American
At the beginning of the war, Jünger was excited to be fighting for his country, but by the end he admitted he tired of the war. When he first arrived, he was “enraptured by war” (Jünger, p. 5). The war would be a great adventure and Jünger and his fellow soldiers were excited to partake in the war. Even months later, after Jünger sustained his first injury and went home, he saw the loss of blood and lives during the war as a necessary way to protect his “beautiful country” (Jünger, p. 33). Jünger’s tone gradually changed throughout his war years, perhaps because death and destruction constantly surrounded him.
If his face was printed on a postage stamp, that stamp would not only represent General Brown, but also all the gallantry and sacrifice military personnel go through to make our nation safe and strong. As a military child, I have seen firsthand the hardship of far-away deployments and the physical and mental strength these soldiers have. General Brown represents that and more. For a service member to gain all the accolades he has, they must be dedicated. As a commander of the Special Operations Forces, he had improved the way they fought.
By the end of the war, the loyalty that the Colonies had to England was gone. Before the war the Colonist would 've done anything for Britain and would fight till the death for them. This could be seen for the many wars that the Colonist aid England in even though they didn’t why they were fighting. In Document C, George Washington wrote a letter to Robert Orme showing his dying love to be in service for General Braddock and the British empire quoting, “ believing a more favourable opportunity cannot offer, than to serve under a Gentleman of General Braddock’s abilities and experience”. Serving for British could have one of the most honorable thing that the Colonist could have done.
