Winning a war isn’t an easy task especially against the greatest army in the world at the time, but because of the unity of the American people or the colonists at the time, because of their courage, strength and perseverance they benefited from it and because of these factors they were able to win the war and claim what they so strongly believed they had the right to.

Roosevelt has always seemed like he was prepared for everything in office with his incredible leadership skills and his energy, even though the first time he became president was because another president had been killed.
Richard Howe could be considered the most successful general, when compared to William Howe and George Washington. The bases of this argument are mainly; the military experience of each general and the number of recorded mistakes made by each general during their military expeditions. One of the main reasons, Richard Howe was the most successful general was because of his vast experience in military leadership or command. In hindsight Richard Howe had far more experience of being a military leader than William and Washington as he was enlisted in the Royal Navy in 1739 and then became Admiral, the rank of the highest naval officers, in 1775. He was also serving as commander in chief, “the officer holding supreme command of the forces in an area or operation”, of a Mediterranean fleet.
In 1846, the “Manifest Destiny” began to be America’s new future. The Manifest Destiny was a 19th century belief that the expansion of America from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean was inevitable.

The exploitation of workers led to regulations guaranteeing safety codes, minimum wage, abolition of child labor, and the rise of unions. While they did not intend for these things to occur, they are still byproducts of their efforts to build American industry. They set up the country to become, financially speaking, the largest beneficiary of World War I as the U.S. supplied much of the material used to fight the conflict.
The commercials, “ Towards the Sound of Chaos,” by Jay Walters Thompson, talks to the audience on how being in the marines is a special opportunity and privilege. The commercial attracts qualified civilians by explaining what the Marines are disciplined to do and how they acquire such advantages and skills. Created in 2009, when most modern countries in the world have fully equipped and developed armed forces, military power has become the standard for the country’s strength. This idea is exemplified by how the U.S wanted to draft more marines for their army. Being in the marines is advertised as the epitome of bravery, and this commercial is doing just the same.
George Washington leadership definitely contributed to the success of the American Revolution. George Washington demonstrated bravery, humility, intelligence, and sacrifice to his soldiers during the American Revolution. Washington showed his intelligence and strategy skills in both successful surprise attacks on the British in Trenton, New Jersey and Princeton, New Jersey. During the surprise attack in Princeton, Washington displayed bravery to his men by riding into the midst of battle and them to victory. Washington earned respect from his men by showing humility and sacrifice when he chose to live in harsh conditions with his soldiers instead of his person quarters.
The United States military I consider one of the best in the world which is one reason I love learning about it. The U.S. military is well funded and generally has some of the newest and most advanced technology out there such as a railgun that fires ferrous projectiles using magnets to 3 times the speed of sound. For reasons like this I also want to join the marines to get to use technology like that. My family has joined the military often and it’s usually the navy. One of my cozens is in the navy and so was my uncle who operated the sonar on a Cleveland class cruiser which was apparently hit by a torpedo.
Treating wastewater is extremely vital to the health and well-being of eco-systems all around the world. The treatment of wastewater is a fairly modern concept, though collection systems to remove foul-smelling water were common in ancient Rome, it was not until the 19th century that urbanized areas began to realize that removing the pollutants from the water that they were discharging into the environment was extremely important. (1) The reason that this became so relevant was a direct result of populations becoming so concentrated by the late 1800’s that outbreaks of life-threatening illnesses were being linked to bacteria found in the polluted water. (1) As a result of this, the practice of wastewater collection and treatment was developed
So the enemy’s discern the japanese plans in time for the Allied fleets to assemble in the Coral Sea. Frank J.
