The Civil War was a great turning point for Americans and their ideas and thoughts of freedom. Slavery began to be questioned because of this change, as several writings express the belief of everyone having freedom and equality. For example, the “Gettysburg Address” by Abraham Lincoln strongly expresses that every man was created equal and everyone should put that into action. Another great source expressing equality is “Ain’t I a Women” by Sojourner Truth. The Civil War reshaped ideas and beliefs Americans once had and molded them into understanding that all people men, women, blacks, and whites are all created equal.

They party and play around while together but when the time comes they’re always ready to do what needs to be done.
The military believed they had more advanced planes than their enemies and that they would help them win the war. Towards the beginning of the book, all of the squadrons name their planes. Many of these names were crazy and all of them symbolized hope, despair or regret. “Phil would write that it was copilot George Moznette who suggested Super Man” (Hillenbrand 68). Louie and his squadron had been fighting the war for some time and their initial hope was fading, but they felt their plane was strong like its name and this belief helped renew their hope.

This speech is extremely effective as King 's use of rhetoric demands racial justice in an unjust society. Martin Luther King use of carefully planned use of language through a wide range of techniques make 's this speech an effective one through both the oral delivery and written text.

The Tuskegee Airmen is the popular name of a group of African-American military pilots (fighter and bomber) who fought in World War II. Officially, they formed the Fighter Group and the Bombardment Group of the United States Army Air Forces. The name also applies to the navigators, bombardiers, mechanics, instructors, crew chiefs, nurses, cooks and other support personnel for the pilots. Black Americans in many U.S. states were still the subject. The American military was racially segregated, as was much of the federal government.
Since both heroes were African Americans, they went through many hardships in order to conserve their rights as human beings. Davis once said, “All the blacks in the segregated forces,” as cited in Goldstein, “operated like they had to prove they could fly an airplane when everyone believed they were too stupid” (2002, para.6). In addition to that, Brashear and Davis received several awards for their achievements. For instance, “Men of Honor” is a movie that acts out Carl’s life, while Benjamin got medals, such as the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal. Another similarity between these two heroic figures shows their influence on people.
“Malcom X” is a great movie where Denzel Washington plays the role of Malcom X. Washington did a phenomenal job playing this role. After doing my research on Malcom X in the past, Malcom X once said “I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against”. In the speech that I will focus on Malcom X shockingly said he stands for nothing but what he was when he was born; a black man. Malcom X’s address to the people of Harlem grabbed many people’s attention.

When the pilots of the 332nd Fighter Group painted the tails of their P-47s and later, p-51s, red, the nickname “Red tails” was coined.
