Meta Keywords: Four freedoms, BiPartisan coffee shop, Norman Rockwell, World War II The Seventy-Fifth Anniversary of FDR’s Four Freedoms Speech and the Norman Rockwell Series that Commemorates It In January of 1941, seventy-five years ago this year, Franklin Delano Roosevelt delivered a State of the Union address to the joint houses of the U.S. Congress. This speech, delivered on the eve of our entry into World War II, is remarkable for both its content and its intent. It came to be known as
The first paragraph of his speech sets the tone entirely, in which Lincoln doesn’t directly mention the bloodbath of Gettysburg, where 50,000 soldiers died. He refers in the opening phrase, “Four score and seven years ago,” to the founding of America though another important written document, the Declaration of Independence that was wrote in 1776. Lincoln wanted the country to focus on preserving this country and this speech remind citizens that this nation was in fact “conceived in liberty, and dedicated to all men are created equal. I believe Lincoln wanted all Americans, Confederate and Union, to focus on preserving the nation. He didn’t want to upset everyone by dwelling on the blood spilled in the Battle of Gettysburg.
His main purpose of writng this novel was to ensure that the world knew everything about the life of a European Jew between the years of 1933-1945. He wanted for the people who haven't experienced the suffering of the concentration camps to get a detailed image about what their lives were like. The way he used imagery really made you feel as if you were there, which helped him establish his purpose of writing Night. For example, “The trees were in bloom. It was a year like so many others, with its spring, its engagements, its weddings, and its births.
Edward Hopper's painting titled Nighthawks is his most successful as well as the most well-known piece of art in America.

Hopper uses value and variety to direct the viewers attention through the painting.
Even though there were some “violent protests and strikes… across the country”, most people claimed that “in spite of hard times, the president had given them hope,” and this hope had come through the relief from the New Deal (Grubin). The people felt like they had a strong connection or relationship with the president through the Fire Side Chats, which was Mr. President speaking to them through the radio every Sunday. They also gained this hope during President Roosevelt’s inaugural address, in which he told the country that the only thing they had to fear was fear itself (Grubin). This hope had given the Washington boys, and much of the country, hope to create a determination to push through the Great Depression’s touch challenges. By pushing through these challenges, they became stronger mentally from training their minds, socially from learning to get along with different people, emotionally from learning to control their emotions, and physically from conditioning and working hard at rowing.
After Winston Churchill broadcasted his speech, he signed an agreement with President Franklin D. Roosevelt on September 2, 1940, where, according to U.S. Department of State, OFFICE of the HISTORIAN “the United States gave the British more than 50 obsolete destroyers, in exchange for 99-year leases to territory in Newfoundland and the Caribbean, which would be used as U.S. air and naval bases.” This agreement had an effect on the progress of the war where Great Britain was in need to support its army divisions to be able to stand up the German ambition, adjust the war strategy and reduce the losses. Therefore, the Prime Minister said: “We expect very large additions to our weapons in the near future, and in preparation for this we intend forthwith to call up, drill and train further large numbers.” There is no doubt that after the U.S entered the war in December 1941, Germany gradually lost control, and there were several defeats that led to the victory of Britain and its allies. Accordingly, Sir Winston Churchill implied in his speech “Their Finest Hour” to the American that the German dream would not stop by Great Britain, but it would control and govern not only the Europe, but even all the countries that overseas, and the United Stated was one of them. Hereby, the Prime Minister intended to mention “the whole world, including the United Stated…will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age.” Winston Churchill
I was so happy when I got word in 1776, that the Declaration of Independence had been written by Thomas Jefferson. I also remember having to leave my family to fight in the war. My most recent memory was helping to build the huts here at Valley Forge. It has been hard in this desolate camp place 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia. I remember when the Continental Army marched into the valley led by General George Washington.

Paul Revere was the one who started the midnight ride and it spread quickly throughout the world. He was very brave to do that knowing that he was going to start something. Also he pretty much started from nothing and he wanted to make a difference so he did that. Two of the sources used were “Excerpts from the Letter from Paul Revere to Jeremy Belknap, circa 1798” and The Tipping Point book. Paul Revere connects to the book The Tipping Point because he showed traits of a connector and salesmen in his midnight ride and how he spreads the word that the British are coming throughout his village.
In 1952 John Kennedy ran for US senate against Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. Kennedy won by 70,000 votes. Kennedy ran for president in 1960, he won by less than 120,000 votes. A famous statement that John Kennedy once stated was, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” Russian leader, Khrushchev, the British Prime Minister and John Kennedy all signed the nuclear test ban treaty; therefore Kennedy won his greatest foreign affairs victory. Many people to this day remember the shocking moment when they first heard of President Kennedy 's assassination. He was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963 by a communist sympathizer named Lee Oswald.
As James was working with the congress he was very close friends with Abraham Lincoln and as they had long conversations Lincoln persuaded him to resign his commission (Freidel). As he repeatedly went for election he won constantly and he was in office for 18 years, later he became the leading republican in the house (Freidel). Around 1880 at a republican convention, he failed to win the presidential nomination for his friend john Sherman. On the 36th ballet Garfield became a Dark Horse.
the reason being is because the long wall in the Book is based on the Berlin Wall, as the Yooks and Zooks are to the United States and Russia.“The ending of the book is a cliff hanger and it forces to think about ourselves”, as it says on ("Shmoop.com"). That is why Seuss’s books and poems were so precious to us as children because they provided life lessons and inspire us. Theodor (Dr. Seuss) Geisel’s story begins in 1904 Springfield ; Massachusetts.
It was given after the Civil War almost as a way to retsore the nation. In the speech Abraham starts off by saying “ Four score and seven years ago” which is significant because that was when the Declaration of Independence was signed and when the colonies gained their freedom fromGreat Britain. He then goes on to say that the founding fathers bulit the nation on liberty and equality for all men, but years later they are fighting to see if its true. He uses atlleration to honor the fallen soliders by saying, “The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.” To conclude, Abraham Lincoln was a hero to many people but to others he was a man with a questionable motive. To Hofstader he was a man that used his “unfortuante upbringings” as a way to advanced his politcal
It’s December 19th, 1998 and the trial for the impeachment of President Clinton is about to take place. He has been our president since 1993, and now they think he needs to be impeached for everything he has done. However, I do not think he needs to be impeached he is a very good president. So far throughout his presidential term he has created over six million new jobs. “As a part of the 1993 Economic Plan, President Clinton cut taxes on fifteen million low-income families and made tax cuts available to ninety percent of small businesses, while raising taxes on just 1.2 percent of the wealthiest people (whitehouse.gov, 2013).
