Paul Revere shouted throughout his midnight ride, “The Regulars are coming!” He was an American Patriot in the American Revolution who lived in Boston at the time. His lifespan was from 1735 to 1818, during the American Revolution. One of his famous quotes was “In Medford, I awakened the Captain of the Minutemen; and after that, I alarmed almost every house, till I got to Lexington.” Paul Revere is important to history because if he didn't warn Lexington about the British, America itself might not be known as America.
The boston massacre will forever be known in history. This battle occurred on March 5th, of 1770. Revere got to working on his masterpiece within days of the incident. The engravings that he made fueled the fire of the revolution itself. He showed the innocence throughout the colonists
The Boston Massacre is one of America’s most memorable moments in history. The Tragedy of March 5th was a leading event that soon stimulated its significance toward the American Revolution. The debate of who to blame for the occurrence of the massacre is still ongoing, and like most debates there are two different sides to the argument. Doug Linder, phenomenally explains the events that led to the massacre in his article “The Boston Massacre Trails: An Account”, in which he analyzes all facts and aspects that occurred during the trial to the point where he explores who is to blame for the horrendous event on the night of march 5th. In the article, Linder is trying to explain that through all the pain and death during that dreadful night, the
The Assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King was a very established civil rights leader who not only stood up for the equality of blacks, but also for the issues of poverty throughout our country during the mid 1900s. Throughout this paper I will be summarizing and comparing the differences between two articles on Martin Luther King. These articles were originally published in historical journals. The articles I will be using include “The Death of Martin Luther King” by Richard Cavendish and “”Now that He is Safely Dead”:
Samuel Adams’ interpersonal skills of leadership, organization, and coordination boosted him to the forefront of the revolution. As people grew more and more tired of the laws England had placed upon them, Samuel Adams rose up voicing his opinions of the independence they desired. The principle that it was “lawful to resist the Supreme Magistrate, if the Commonwealth cannot be otherwise preserved,” (Samuel Adams, 1740) which was his Harvard college thesis, followed him throughout his entire career. He publicly defended these rights, organized the Sons of Liberty, and staged many protests. Beginning in Boston, Massachusetts,
Analysis Part 1: The political cartoon I picked was created by Joseph E. Baker an American artist. He was born in 1837 in Maine. He was an apprentice at first for John H. Buford lithography.

Since the win Benjamin’s popularity grew like wildfire. Ben was then fired, due to tensions building when a letter was printed containing information on cracking down
Causes and Effects of the Boston Tea Party On December 16 1773, the Sons of Liberty led by Samuel Adams, conducted a union of Patriots to the Boston Harbor. King George had recently confirmed the Tea Act, which forced colonists to pay for unreasonably taxed tea. Furthermore, they plotted to boycott tea because of it. This boycott began the Boston Tea Party, causing many other crises after, leading to the Revolutionary War. By diminishing the tax on imported British tea, this act gave British merchants a biased advantage in selling their tea in America.
If the following events didn’t take place we wouldn’t have America. In my opinion the Boston Massacre was one of the very main causes to why the Road to Revolution took place. The reason I believe this was an important cause because it was, “ the first episode which resulted in the loss of life.” It is stated that, “Four Bostonians were killed when Redcoats fired into an angry mob.”
The second persona of the speech delivered by president Obama when addressing the Boston Marathon Bombing was the Bostonians themselves. The term second persona was defined by Black as defined by discourse, and “that persona is its implied author,” (p.111). Therefore, by mentioning the Bostonians as those most effected by the event, Obama has created an implied author through calling on all other American citizens for support, and concern. The elements of any rhetorical situation as outlined in Bitzer’s essay that include exigence, constraints, and audience, can all be found in Obama’s speech. As defined by Bitzer, audience “constrained in decision and action, (p.6)” whereby making the audience in this case, the American people excluding
When you here the name George Rogers Clark you probably wouldn’t know who it is right off the top of your head. Well he is remembered as the heroic Revolutionary War commander and that he also led a force of frontiersman through the numbing waters of the Illinois countryside so he could capture a British-held named Fort Sackville during February of 1779 (National Park Service). The capture of Fort Sackville was by far his most dramatic accomplishment. He continued exertions throughout the war (National Park Service). During the war he put a lot of effort into building forts along the Mississippi and Ohio rivers.
Dickstein’s main focus in the article is how even after 50 years since Catch-22’s creation, we have not escaped the novel’s message. Dickstein repeatedly calls attention to the cynicism and madness presented in the novel and how it has and continues to impact the world. Dickstein uses the prototypical college undergraduate, selfish soldiers, and even American presidents all as examples of cynicism. Dickstein specifically uses John F. Kennedy’s famous quote “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country,” as his main example. Dickstein eloquently sums his claims up towards the end of his article when he states, “But subsequent history from Vietnam to Watergate, from Nixon’s lies to Bush’s wars, dimmed youthful idealism, stoked disenchantment, and turned peaceful protest into cynicism and rage.
Revere learned early the lesson of perseverance, a lesson that would be an important in his later life, Revere would need to keep on going no mater what obstacles appeared in his way. Paul Revere was an American silversmith and a patriot in the American Revolution. He is most famous for alerting Colonial militia of British invasion before the Battles of Lexington and Concord. Revere was a prosperous and prominent Boston silversmith who helped organize an intelligence and alarm system to keep watch on the British military. Revere later served as an officer in the Penobscot Expedition, one of the most disastrous campaigns of the American Revolutionary War, for which he was absolved of blame.
"Honest Abe" is not all that Americans think. Sources state that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated because of the money he printed debt-free ("Whiteout Press"). But the real reason John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln was because Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus, arrested people that spoke out against him and oversaw concentration two camps. Abraham Lincoln 's assassination is directly correlated to him being a war criminal ("Southern Sentinel").
A member of the Boston 's Sons of Liberty and a silversmith, Paul Revere, helped stir exasperation against the British army by producing an inaccurate print of the Boston Massacre depicting British soldiers firing into an unarmed crowd. Revere’s reason for this was believed because of the government in London decided to impose a new set of tax laws. As a result, caused Revere’s items in his silver shop to be taxed. The image became one of the most influential pieces of the revolutionary
