Out of the people listed above George Atzerodt may not have deserved the punishment he received. Atzerodt was definitely involved with many of Booth’s plans involving harm to the president. Before the plan to kill president Lincoln came about, there was another plot to kidnap him. George Atzerodt was one of the original men involved in the plot to kidnap Lincoln, yet this plan fell through and never took place or succeeded. On the night of April fifteenth eighteen sixty five, he was given the job of murdering vice president Andrew Johnson.
Although Odysseus was only supposed to be gone two weeks, it still caused worry and concern. Odysseus caused pain by being gone for twenty years. No one in the family knew where Odysseus was. He was assumed to be dead. Him being gone for twenty years, caused Telemachus to have an identity crisis.
The video "Conspiracy Theories ; The Lincoln Assassination" discussed the three theories that John Wilkes Booth either worked with the President of the Confederacy Jefferson Davis to kill Lincoln, the leader of the Confederate Secret Service in Montreal, or the Confederate Government. Based on Booth’s motives, diary entries, and plans, he most likely worked by himself to create the elaborate plot to foil the new victory of the Union. In all three theories, Booth was told to kill the president, which would go against his unhealthy form of southern patriotism. In Booth’s last journey entry before he died, he thought he had done nothing wrong and brought justice to the South by saying, “God cannot pardon me if I have done wrong; yet I cannot see any wrong, except in serving a degenerate people. The little, the very little, I left behind to clear my name, the Government will not allow to be printed.
There were only a few hundred soldiers at the alamo so Quan Seguin delivered the message to general Sam Houston, but he told Quan Seguin to stay because it was already too late to send anybody there. So they were there basically to die for the Alamo and they knew it was a great possibility that they were all going to die. Davy Crockett kept their spirits up though, they knew that they were
Unknown to many of the Native Americans at the time of their capture, they were leaving their home behind forever as well as their livelihoods. When General Scott and his men came and arrived to force people out of their homes, many people “did not have blankets and many of them had been driven from home barefooted”(Burnett). At the time of their capture, they were not given any information, which made their journey very brutal considering many of them did not have the proper protection from the harsh weather. As they started on their long journey “many of the children rose to their feet and waved their little hands good-by to their mountain homes, knowing they were leaving them forever”(Burnett). The people that were left in the tribe at the time did not sign up to leave their homes, which demonstrates how powerless they were over the invasion.
Valley Forge At the time of George washington felt bad about how they were treated. The soldiers did not have good food, the soldiers were living in bad conditions in the year 1777 because the house has holes and they had bad food and In the morning it was really cold. If I were a soldier, I would re-enlist because they are losing people and they need people. I would re-enlist so I could fight for my nation, they need more people and i don't want to be a summer soldier. Re-enlist because now everyone wants to be a summer soldier .D.C.
After he ran away from home to escape a beating from his father Davy Crockett traveled all of Virginia. He decided that his lack of education limited his marriage possibilities. He participated in a massacre of Indians at Tallushatchee in northern Alabama. But returned home when his enlistment was up.

He has no clue how much the government will pay him in disability compensation related to his injury, so he can 't make a future budget. He just waits. Thousands of troops are like Lanier: not fully fit to serve but in limbo for about two years waiting to get discharged under a new system that was supposed to be more efficient than its predecessor. And the delays are not only affecting service members, but the military 's readiness as well. New troops can 't enlist until others are
It was my love for my son. Sergeant Tyler Richardson. Tyler had joined the military seven years back, and I hadn’t heard from him since. Normally, a forty-four year old shouldn’t be able to join the military, but due to the lack of soldiers applying, I was able to easily skip the physical and be sent to training. My wife said goodbye, muffling her tears as I drove myself to the military base, my horrific vision getting the job done.
“A doctor’s visit,” I complained to my mom. Americans despise having to drive twenty minutes to the doctor’s office, while there are patients who are desperate for medical help although their best chance is miles and miles away. Inaccessibility to health care is something that we, as well-privileged individuals, are unaware of. We have the luxury of visiting the doctor for a routine check-up, but there are people who are suffering life-threatening diseases and never get to avail the medical help they urgently need. I endured this desperation when my dad was without a job for a year.
The majority of the letters were left ignored due to soilders being labeled as "missing," with no one searching for them, or bodies never being recovered from battlefields and being identified. As she became further informed, the determination inside provoked her to do something in order to help the relatives of the men who fought for our country. Immediately, Clara began communications with Abraham Lincoln, in order to establish permission to officially respond to these lingering inquiries. Once granted authorization, "The Search for the Missing Men" commenced.19 The entire summer of 1865 was spent assisting in locating, identifying, transporting, and holding funerals for over thirteen-thousand individuals from Georgia. Not all soilders were left moratally wounded, numerous soilders had been incredibly injured, unable to communicate their identity to others, some lost, held captive by enemy confederates, or simply couldn 't endure the experiences
One night a messenger came to Sybil’s home to warn her father that the British soldiers were attacking the nearby town of Danbury, Connecticut. The messenger asked the colonel for his help.

After fleeing, Ben Hall 's father would not return, until arrested, for two years, therefore this absence left Eliza and the children to fend for themselves, earning income from selling vegetables, fruit and livestock to make ends meet. Consequently Ben Hall 's older brother William (who would maintain a close relationship with his brother Ben until his death, would, along with Ben Hall 's half brother Thomas be the only family members to attend Ben Hall 's funeral.) would therefore be arrested for his alleged participation in his father 's crime of horse theft in 1845. Furthermore in extracts from newspaper articles which follow, represent the complicity and participation of the Hall children in crime 's orchestrated by their father in and
Abraham Lincoln’s assassination was unjust because Lincoln was an amazing leader and one of the best presidents to date, he pulled a nation together after a civil war, and created the Emancipation Proclamation which led to the freedom of slaves. However, his assassin, John Wilkes Booth, killed him simply because he was sympathetic toward the Confederacy. Lincoln’s assassination was executed in 1865 at Ford’s Theater after Booth failed to kidnap him prior to the Confederacy’s downfall. He tried to save the Confederacy by killing Lincoln, the Vice President, and the Secretary of State to try to upset the balance of the Union. After he was shot, Lincoln was said to be, “slumped in his chair, paralyzed, and struggling to breathe.” He
