Finally, he also uses logos to show logical appeal towards the audience. Patrick henry says "shall we try arguments" talking about and thinking about everything they have done in the past that hasnt worked. Henry say the British will betray the colonists, telling the audience you can't trust the British that why we shall fight. Give me liberty or give me death is a way of him saying and showing he will get peace one way or another, but if the people dont agree with him then there is no hope for freedom so give him
All I’m trying to say is that this is our chance to free America from Britain. I wouldn’t care If i were on the verge of dying I will fight till my last breath and keep my heart towards the truth. We are an amazing country and we deserve to be free and that is why I am Reenlisting. Because this is my duty to protect our country from Britain’s unfair rule. The question “Would you Re- Enlist” is significant because it shows who will stand for America or back down.
He believed that by letting himself join the British military it would somehow weaken the American forces and their quest for liberty. In 1785, Arnold returned to American soil as a commander of British forces in Connecticut. The most famous of these battles would be the burning of New London. This would be Arnold’s gravest decision, for he turned to the losing side and lost his position in his home country. Benedict Arnold’s name lives in disgrace.
That doesn’t matter to him, he feels as if he will do better. Macbeth begin to feel as if the bonds and relationships were fake, so he turned against the people who supported him with little to no regret. He was solely focused on this motive of becoming king and gaining as much power as he can. For example, he ended up killing his best friend Banquo and almost killed Banquo’s son. This was all to try and prevent them from fulfilling the second part of the prophecy, Banquo’s descendants becoming king.
In addition to figurative language Henry uses loaded words to get the audience's attention. For instance, at the end of his speech his closing words were "but as for me, give me liberty or give me death" (Henry 83). This shows that Patrick Henry will not stand for the oppressing British any longer, and he is willing to die for what he believes in. If he cannot live by his own rules and make his own decisions as a free man, then he does not want to live at all. This really grabbed the audience's attention and sparked a feeling patriotism among many.
In Zinn 's book, Nathaniel Bacon is described as a manipulative man, who persuaded the gullible to agree with his ideas and values. The rebellion itself was because Bacon hated both the elite and the indians, and after he was released from prison for being a rebel, he took his 'army ' and began attacking innocent indians. After Bacon had died, Zinn includes the fact that the anti-rebel forces tricked Bacon 's militia into thinking that if they surrendered, the slaves and servants (who made up most of the rebels) would be given freedom. Instead, they took them back to their masters. The governemt strived to stop the rebellion for two reasons: to make a policy to control indians, and to discourage rebellion in the future.
To be honest I wouldn’t give up my freedom for increased security from terrorism. Benjamin Franklin stated, “They who would give up essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.” I couldn’t have said it any better. We have been fighting for our rights for a very long time. Many people have died to ensure that people have liberties. So why should I give up these rights that have been long fought for.
Imagine if you were being hunted down in your own country by an army who wanted you dead. What would you do? Would you run away and hide from the danger or would you accept the situation you were in and let yourself be killed? Some lucky people got the choice between both options, and I was one of them. I chose to hide from the danger present in front of me, purely because of a promise made between my father and a man named Hans Hubermann.
But without that, I think quitting would be the best solution for me. I cannot help my country if I were dead. But I can help my country at another time in the future in other ways. I am sure there are those who went into hiding, not because they were afraid, but because they knew they could still fight the enemy in other ways while staying
They seized the armory and seven people were killed while a dozen others were wounded. His intention was to arm slaves with weapons from the arsenal, but no slaves came to his calling and the raid was put to rest by Colonel Robert E. Lee and his marines. These acts of treason are what made John Brown a important figure back then. He tried a different approach to having slaves freed but in the end it back fired and cost him and some of his kids their lives. Some people say he was a hero because he stood up to the south bulling of slaves but others say he was a terrorist because he killed innocent people based on their
I was accused for killing the Inca’s and my best friend or partner on my crew Diego Almagro. I mean I did kill the Inca’s but not for fun for an actual reason. The King and Queen told me that whenever I find land I can claim it for Spain. I was with my crew and Diego was captured and we didn’t know who did it so I sent my some of my crew to spy on the inca’s. They found the inca’s territory and they asked their empire about what happened to Diego and he wasn’t giving us any information so
I found out that Sir Walter Raleigh tried and plotted to kill. He hated me so much but, then I found out that Raleigh cheated on Queen Elizabeth. Also had an affair with one of Elizabeth’s maids. Then after that some of my servants told me that Raleigh was plotting to kill me again and almost succeeded. Raleigh was committed for treason because he was trying to
