History 202 Midterm Exam Paper Throughout the semester we have studied several extremely influential time periods in American history.

Maximilien Robespierre’s views of society, as seen throughout the major events in the revolution, were shaped by his childhood. His mother died at a very early age and his father deserted him. He lived with older relatives, and became a very intelligent man with the transferring of many schools. He decided to become a lawyer due to his magnificent ability in public speaking. Still in school during the years before the revolution, he anticipated the starting events to play out, and joined the Jacobin party; a party where the most critical debates took place (Maximilien Robespierre).

Where Washington performed Paine devised and wrote. The deeds of the one in the Weld were matched by the deeds of the pother with his pen.” His books inspired both philosophical and working-class radicals in the United Kingdom; and he is often claimed as an intellectual ancestor by United States liberals, libertarians,
He dates all the way back to tension of the oil crisis in the 50 's between Iran and U.S. Farber then explains what he feels was the immediate result of this crisis when Shah Reza Pahlavi was granted protection in the U.S by Carter, for cancer treatment.
