Thank you for Arguing by Jay Heinrichs and Lies My Teacher Told Me by sociology instructor James Loewen are two great books. While the first ten chapters of Jay Heinrichs’ piece of work principally focuses on both traditional and modern rhetoric for contemporary public speakers and readers, chapters 1 to 13 of James Loewen’s book attempts to study why most American high school students hate history studies.

Conversely, Loewen’s book cites a number of factors, which explain why the American history is intrinsically dramatic (Loewen 7). Thank You for Arguing
The novel, The Founding Brothers, is a piece of historical literature written by Joseph Ellis that follows the lives of the founding fathers of the United States of America. The story begins as the nation was just entering its beginning days of freedom as the Constitution was being tweaked to perfection, despite differences of opinion the authors of the document faced. The story then proceeds to tell the tale of Burr’s defeat of Hamilton as a result of their famous duel, and Ellis stresses the importance of knowledge of the context of the quarrel. The author then analyzes the truth regarding the dinner discussion of important issues between Jefferson and Madison, and how the account could very easily have been tainted by Jefferson’s bias. Shortly afterwards, the issue of slave trade and the manner in which the issue was handled is analyzed.

Hamilton Essay Hamilton, the American musical about the life of an American founding father, would be an amazing opportunity to experience. Because of my love for intellectual hip hop and rap music along with my interest in American history, specifically the constitution, I should be granted the honor to go see Hamilton in Chicago, Illinois. Growing up surrounded with people constantly listening to rap music, I have noticed the illiteracy of some songs and overall artists. One rapper who I have discovered to rap about social issues and important effects goes by the of Logic. Highly comparing to the thoughtful and creative lyrics seen in Logics songs is the soundtrack of Hamilton.
