The definition of heroism changes with the context, time, and point of view. The archetype of heroism is defined as someone who is strong, intelligent, brave, and daring. A hero usually has some type of supernatural power that helps them combat a malicious villain or force. Heroes of the past are not essentially heroes of the present, and vice versa. Upon closer and more personal consideration, many more qualities of what makes a hero become evident. Valor, honesty, selflessness, the will to persevere, and someone who is above all hatred are just a few overlooked and “more recent” qualities of what it takes to be a hero.
I think John Brown was a hero, because he tried to find ways to free slaves. Even though he killed people or got people killed in the process, he still was trying his best to help free slaves. Supplying the slaves with weapons was a good idea, but did not turn out they way he wanted. Everyone messes up, but he still had this plan to try and help free slaves. So in my eyes I see John Brown as a hero not a
Ulysses S. Grant, The Unlikely Hero by Michael Korda is a story about the life of Ulysses S. Grant. Grant became one of the first presidents to be elected without barely giving a speech.

Andrew Jacksons presidenicy was very complicated. He was a man that believed that the white folk should be treated evenly. The poor sohuld get momey like the rich, and the rich should get money the same way as the poor. Being a normal man, the rich disliked him for his opinions that did not fit the rich men and women their needs. The conflict with the Bank, and the Indian Removal act made Jackson a hero in my opinion. Andrew did indeed make some horrible decisions in his life, but he also changed history for the best of it.
Do you think Louis Riel is a hero or villain? I believe that Riel is a hero because he stood up for the rights of the Metis to the Canadian government during the Red River Settlement and the Northwest Rebellion. He was a great leader who would do anything for his people, even if he had to sacrifice himself. However, in the view of the government people think he’s the complete opposite. Louis Riel did go against the government and do many illegal things, but it was all for his people. In the end of the day he did everything for the Metis and I find that the big reason why he is a hero.

William Lyon Mackenzie King, a man of glory, forever changed Canada’s constitution during the tumultuous nineteenth century and resolved all difficulties Canada faced on its way to becoming a strong, independent, and autonomous nation. His contributions and sanctions targeted all factors at the time and had interrelated effects on the construction of Canada. Unlike other Canadian politicians, King handled every crisis with thorough planning and achieved promising outcomes from unsolvable problems. It is without a doubt that King was the most influential figure in Canada’s development. His role in the autonomy, economic development, and social stability stands as solid evidence of the pioneering impacts he had on Canada’s advancement.
In my opinion Louis Riel is a martyr because of the things he did for his beliefs. Being a martyr requires more than just a cause, it requires the individual to have strong beliefs for their religion, and then being killed due to those beliefs. Louis Riel would be classified as a martyr due to his actions and contributions for his religion as a Metis man. He helped develop and create an identity for the Metis community. He made a list of rights for Metis individuals some of which include the right to elect legislature, all sheriffs, magistrates and etc be elected by the people, all documents and acts of legislature be published in both french and english, etc. Louis Riel was also known as the Metis leader and a canadian politician, founder

When most people think of a hero, they may think of a fireman, police officer, or a soldier. Although this is true, my definition of a 'hero ' is someone who does something dangerous or brave to save another. Someone who just doesn 't get themselves out of a situation, but they also reach out and try to save the others. There are only a select few people who are brave, compassionate and selfless enough, to spend their days improving the world one act at a time with no regard for personal risk or reward. Frederick Douglass was such a man, and he saved the lives of many slaves. Douglass was born a slave, but escaped in 1838, becoming a key spokesman for many free and enslaved blacks during the abolitionist movement. Douglas conducted himself
Another patriot who proved he was a hero was John Hancock. He did so by signing the Declaration of Independance. The document had been written for the purpose of declaring the colonies separate and independent from Great Britain. John Hancock, President of the Second Continental Congress, was the first to sign the document (“John Hancock’s Signature”). “There! Now old King George can read my signature without his spectacles, and double to bounty on my head,” was what Hancock stated when examining the drying ink of his name on the document (Roatma, 17). By signing the Declaration of Independance, Hancock would be declared a British traitor (“John Hancock”). Hancock did not care about this, he knew what he wanted, what was right, and how to achieve

In this essay, I’ll be telling you my opinion on whether Andrew Carnegie was a hero or not. Andrew Carnegie, known as the king of steel, grew up poor, but became one of the richest and most successful business owner during the 1800s and 1900s.
