If I was a soldier at Valley Forge, I would quit. In “Estimates of Illness and Deaths at Valley Forge” it showed the estimated deaths and illnesses reported in Valley Forge. (Document A) According to document A, in February about 50% of the soldiers got sick. Also, about 1800 to 2500 soldiers died. In the second document it was a painting of George Washington presenting the Congressional Committee to the soldiers at Valley Forge. (Document B) In this painting if you look at the soldiers, you can see that some soldiers don’t have any shoes on. At the bottom left corner, you can also see a dead horse. This might be because of sickness, starvation, or the harsh cold weather. The last document I used was the Diary of Doctor Waldo. (Document
It was once said by Henry Ford that, “there is one rule for the industrialist and that is: make the best quality goods possible at the lowest cost possible, paying the highest wages possible”. This quote is quite fitting for the man that invented the first moving assembly line; which allowed products to be created more efficiently and cheaper. The assembly line was a significantly important invention because it enhanced previous technology to create a positive impact in factory operation, improved the everyday lives of Americans, and inspired modern day inventions based on the assembly line.
Tom Watson was a statesmen from Georgia who became a leading racist, anti Catholic,and anti Semite. He used his journalism to express his radical views, which sometimes led to violence. He also had a weekly paper, that was circulated repetitively. He was part of the US senate from 1920 until he died in 1922. Although, he changed his support of blacks to support white supremacy, he was always an isolationist. Tom Watson went against the black poor because the Populist Party failed, and he found a way to make money out of saying what people wanted to hear.
Thesis : After the Civil War, America was in a post-war boom. During the 1870-1890, big business moguls, such as Rockefeller and Carnegie, create huge corporations which not only affected the economy, but also affected the political realm of America. While many may assume that during the rise of these big business helped to change the economy and politics, the real focus was on the responses formed by society, such as labor unions, increase public outcry, and political opposition groups that helped to change society.
Federal agents suspected DLK was growing marijuana in his home. To gather evidence they scanned his house with a device called a thermal imager. A thermal imager detects heat. The results of the scan showed abnormal heat signatures. However was that search constitutional? The use of the thermal imager violated DLK’s fourth amendment right. Even though DLK’s acts were illegal, the process of arresting him violated his 4th amendment right due to the fact that the imager goes enhances the eyes ability, the evidence was not disappearing, and the scanning reveals details that can only be found by going in a given house.
Sherry Turkle has quite an interesting view on today`s “wired” world and the concept of being alone together. Therefore, the author is clearly convinced that the world of technology has deprived us of some of the most basic social skills. Although technology can literally grant us unlimited access to the information of the world in which we live today, I too consider that technology does represent a danger on the way we use to socialize before and now. As a result, Turkle does a marvelous job of introducing her beliefs as well as what it could be consider strong evidence to convince her readers making her argument a reasoning sound.
Corporate greedy and corrupt politicians were specific problems and injustices that were present in American life during the late 1800s and early 1900s however these were addressed during the progressive era with laws and regulations.
There were no beds just straw on the mud floor. Cold was one problem; smoke was another. I would leave Valley Forge during the winter due to several reasons. Document A states, “Death estimates due to illnesses during encampment December-June: 1,800-2,500.” This shows that many people died during the Winter at Valley Forge. Also, if this many people died from illnesses than it is likely that I will die from the illness. In Document B it shows George Washington attempting to get us proper food, water, and resources we need to last the winter. This shows that the Congressional Congress will not support us throughout the winter. Even though George Washington stood up for us we still didn’t give us the resources we wanted.

In the argumentative essay, “Should We Let Computers Get Under Our Skins?”, Moor argues that the era of cyborgs-part human and part computer-is coming whether we like it or not, but we should accept a policy of “responsible freedom” along with it. He argues against the thoughts of not allowing cyborgs. He thinks that instead of trying to fight and go against this coming of computer help, we should accept it but be aware of the things that come along with it. We should approach it with having the freedom to be able to decide whether we want computer implants or not, but also by being responsible in knowing the harms that could come with it. He also argues against the side opposing computer based implants. The things he argues against are complete prohibition of these implants and about the therapy and enhancement distinction.
