Olivia Blanda Professor Seo-young Park English 102 16 February 2018 Rhetorical Strategies in FDR 's Pearl Harbor Address "December 7th, 1941-a date which will live in infamy" are the famous words Franklin Delano Roosevelt used to describe one of the most damaging surprise attacks placed on the United States of America. On this day of heartbreak, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, killing over two thousand people and leaving several Americans terrified. The day after Japan attacked the U.S, Franklin Delano Roosevelt (one of the only presidents in history to be elected four times to office) delivered a speech to the nation, now known as FDR 's Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation. With the use of pathos,
The Great Speech Abraham Lincoln on November 19, 1863 delivered one of the most iconic speeches in American History. His delivery infuses us with such raw power and emotions that poured out from the bottom of his heart will change the hearts and minds of Americans for ages to come. Abraham Lincoln did not just write one speech he made five different copies with different sentence structure and paragraph structure, to show how important the layout of the message and how it needed to be simple and to the point. Dissecting “The Gettysburg Address” we begin to understand Abraham Lincoln’s heart lies, he reminds everyone about our past and that we should honor those who fought for our freedom; he tells us “All men are created equal” only to show us what we need to work on as people in the present, he spreads hope for the future and encourages us to grow together
The battlefield of Austerlitz was the site of Napoleon’s great victory over the Russian, Austrian and Holy Roman Empire in 1805. (Wikipedia: Battle of Austerlitz). Conversely, is Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo in 1815 by Britain and Prussia. (Wikipedia: Battle of Waterloo) As a result, this juxtaposition creates a tension in the verse at the very beginning of the poem, making the intention clear that this poem is about both the horror of war, and the battles being mere markers in the passage of time. Gettysburg is the only battlefield referenced not located in Europe and since Sandburg was American one can assume he was writing for what was largely an American audience.
Chris Rosas HIST 1302 03-29-2016 Renee Celeste A Critique on Walters Lords Day of Infamy In reading through and examing the book Day of Infamy by author Walter lord it stands up as a decent but powerful and harrowing account of the attack on Pearl Harbor on december 7, 1941. The author does a really good job of documenting a blow by blow, minute by minute account of what really happened that day in Hawaii, the accounts of all the people who were there and lived through it on both sides the Navy men, Japanese fighter pilots, civillians living on the island, everybody who was there to see it to experence the fear and terror of that day. Though at times the author can drag on and get a little too much into detail at times, but overall

The Gettysburg Address: Why, how and what happened? On November 19, 1863, during the Civil War of the United States, a speech was held in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania that would later go down as one of the greatest in American history. The speech was held during the dedication of the Gettysburg Cemetery, a cemetery founded to honour the deceased soldiers of the battle of Gettysburg. The 272 word long address that the then current president Lincoln held at this event have been remembered ever since and have had a huge impact on the people and the history of the United States. My intention with this essay is to give a wider understanding on why the speech happened and just what impact it has had on the country.
They stayed there from 1942 to 1945 due to executive order 9066. There civil rights as well as there freedom were taken away from them without choice.

In the article, Japanese Americans: The War at Home , the author Roger Daniels explains part of the issue, “On December 7, 1941, Japan launched a sneak attack on the
My Captain!” by Walt Whitman, readers can see how the death of Abraham Lincoln leads him to create a poem with a distinct rhyme scheme while focusing on the literal meaning of the loss of the President; Walt Whitman also uses symbols and a variety of literary devices to develop the poem with the theme of the death of Lincoln and the end of the Civil War. While Walt Whitman is famous for an American poet, the Civil War and the President Abraham Lincoln had great influences on his life. Especially, he is known as an American poet of Democracy. “He conceived of democracy as a state of society in which every individual must actively participate in shaping the policies of the government” (Ford 202). He is famous for not only an American poet but a nurse.

On that day, Japanese planes attacked the United States Naval Base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii Territory. The bombing killed more than 2,300 Americans. It completely destroyed the American battleship U.S.S. The Battle of the Atlantic is one of the most overlooked battlegrounds of World War II but it proved no less important for control of the vital shipping lanes between North America and Europe. The German U-boat scourge was one of the more deadlier components of the German war machine, a component utilized in World War II as well.
It was fought on September 17, 1862. There was over 23,000 casualties on both sides. It is considered, “the bloodiest single day of the Civil War.” The “fall” of Fort Henry opened the Columbia and Tennessee rivers to be controlled by the Union. This was a disadvantage to the Confederates because they now were cut off to two important rivers. Just 10 days later, the capture of Fort Donelson happened.

Dr. Patrick Miller gave an amazing and interesting speech on the issue of the Confederate flag and monuments. The presenter went through the history of what the Confederate flag once stood for and how it became a symbol that affects minorities today. I really like how he was able to relate everything that was occurring in modern times. Something that surprised me is the vast amount of monuments that are still stand to this very day. Dr. Miller told the audience the great lengths people have gone to remove anything that is related to the Confederacy, for example, the many schools in the south were renamed after Obama since they were originally named after Confederate fugues, such as: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis.
Hawaii time, on a Sunday, 360 Japanese war planes attacked the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack that, lasted about two hours, against the United States immediately put us into World War II. On this day two radar operators had spotted an alarming large group of aircraft coming their way from the north. They were told to not be alarmed due to the fact that a flight of B-17s were expected from the United States during that time. Thus, when the air assault coming from the Japanese came, it came as a surprise to the naval base.
