The language used by Andrew Jackson in “On Indian Removal” and Michael Rutledge in “Samuel's Memory” is different because of many different writing factors. The difference in purpose, audience and tone create the changes in these author's works. The purpose for a piece of writing determines the language used, which also influences the audience and tone. Knowing the audience can help make the purpose more clear and better represented. While the tone can give clues to who the audience is and what the purpose is.
After three days of Jackson on trial, the jury has decided that the defendant, Mr. Andrew Jackson was not guilty of crimes against humanity. The vote was very close though, Andrew won by a hair, with the votes being 5 versus 3. The jury found that even though the prosecution proved Jackson was a bad man, he did not commit the crimes against humanity.
Wendell Phillips, a prominent white American abolitionist, gave an empowering and reverent speech regarding his admiration for former slave and Haitian general, Toussaint-Louverture. Phillips uses the power of figurative language and rhetorical devices to reveal an unmistakable abolitionist passion for African American rights, and attempts to ignite this enthusiasm into the hearts and minds of the audience through his zealous attitude. Phillips employs hyperbole, understatement, and metaphor to persuade the audience that the support of African American soldiers will be an influencing aspect in an impending American victory. The speech is rife with parallel structure and reference to historical allusions. This technique allows him to praise Toussaint-Louverture while also influencing and inspiring onlookers.
Andrew Jackson in “On Indian Removal” uses diction as an uplifting tone. He talks on Indian removal as a great thing for white people when he states, “in relation to the removal of the Indians beyond the white settlements is approaching to a happy consummation.” So the way this creates a uplifting tone is because he states that with the indian removal the whites agree and it would make a happy conclusion. Another thing that Andrew Jackson says is,”It gives me pleasure to announce to Congress that the benevolent policy of the Government” This gives another uplifting tone with “gives me pleasure”. This is important because he gives this bright happy tone when he is talking about a disgusting thing on removing Indians.
Andrew jackson was a important cotributor and one of the most influential presidents to ever serve the country. He took on the countries domestic issues and used his executive power far to its extent. Jackson effectivly evicted the native americans which stopped the conflict between the colonists. He vetoed the second bank of america, terminating the recharter bill from ever becoming a law. Also, he avoided south carolina’s seceding from the union. Jackson had a great vision of running the country from a common man’s perspective but failed to oversee beyond this perspective and see the bigger picture.
The Trail of Tears was part of the Indian-removal process. The federal government drove out fifteen thousand Creeks from their land with promises of money and concessions. All across America, nearly a quarter of a million Native Americans, who eventually were stripped of their land by immigrants from Europe, lived happily in the Americas. In the early 1830’s, America was prosperous with natives. By the late 1830’s; however, barely any natives remained in the southeast of the United States. The government drove out all of the natives from their land to grow crops such as cotton. The land the natives lived on had better soil for these crops. When the Americans kicked the natives off their land, they needed a place to “put” them. So the American
Whether Andrew Jackson’s Indian Removal Policies were ethical has come of debate from the time they were enacted and before. The time that Jackson was president has been fittingly named the Jacksonian Era. One of the iconic images of this era is a political cartoon that depicts President Jackson as “King Jackson the First” as he steps on the constitution and the Albany Plan of Union. I think that Jackson’s actions were not ethical.
Did Andrew Jackson have a really big life in the 1800’s? Yes he did, starting in 1830, when he signed the Indian Removal Act on May 28, 1830. This allowed the president to grant unsettled land west of the Mississippi , in trade for Indian land within state borders. In 1838 the move had started. Some went peacefully, some did not. Would the new territories be slave -holding or free? Was Andrew Jackson a hero or a villain?
President Andrew Jackson was a very popular president and did a lot of things during his presidency. But in my opinion, I think he was not democratic because he wanted everything done his way or no way, like during the Indian Removal act in Document 10. He wanted the Indians land so he had his soldiers move them \west into the Indian territory.
Andrew Jackson has been remembered as a ground breaking president, even being put on the $20. President Jackson was a controversial figure, doing many popular and unpopular things in his time. Although he is remembered as a hero from the war of 1812, he also caused the Trail of Tears and tried to destroy the National Bank. As a result, Jackson should not be put on the $20 bill. His actions have caused many misfortune showing that villains do exist.
To begin, he uses emotional appeal to create powerful imagery to persuade the reader that celebrating freedom is wrong when slavery still exists. He announces, “fellow citizens, above your national, tumultuous joy, I hear the mournful wail of millions, whose chains, heavy and grievous yesterday, are today rendered more intolerable by the jubilant shouts that reach them” (para. 4). By creating a picture in the audience’s mind of other people’s cries of freedom deriding slaves, they begin to feel ashamed for being so cheerful while African Americans have no liberty. The readers have recognized that they are being hypocrites by supporting slavery while boasting about their freedom as a country, which leads them to begin wanting to
Pretty much what was summed up there was Jackson is a bad person. He forced innocent people to go live in another state, and that state was like the worst one. All because he is racist. He hated Indians because they were with the British and hid.
America lacked opportunities for Black Americans and Africans to live peacefully among themselves. The height of political tension erupted in the American Civil war, and thousands died to “save the union”. The Civil War ended in 1865, but black American issues would last for decades to come. In 1905, James Weldon Johnson wrote Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing, an illustrious poem meant for Africans and black Americans across the nation. While it was originally written as a poem, Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing was performed by Johnson’s brother, and it has since aptly been adopted as the Black National Anthem. Despite this, Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing is not simply a song; rather, is a medium through which pure black pride, passion, and pain exists and can
Speeches have been used to inspire people for thousands of years. From President Kennedy’s inauguration address, to Winston Churchill’s speech in the House of Commons, to Martin Luther King Junior’s speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, speeches have been used by many to inspire, as well as call listeners to take action. Therefore, the speeches made by Frederick Douglass and Marie Fatayi-Williams, which were intended to encourage an emotional response, were two successful examples of a moving speech that has left a lasting legacy in history.
