A big part of this number is the employees themselves.

The foundation indentured servitude laid for not only the economic advancement of Americans but also of immigrants has greatly benefitted the state. Without them, the Plymouth Colony and other early settlements would not have succeeded and turned into the colony of Massachusetts, which then developed great industry and became a leader for the country. Later on, indentured servitude was the reason immigrants were able to build such incredible communities in Massachusetts, all of which contribute something unique and wonderful back to the state that houses them. Indentured servants sacrificed countless years of their lives to the labor required to build Massachusetts, and the growth and success of our state is to show for
President Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the United States, was known for his love of nature. This was conveyed most strongly in his speeches, such as “Conservation as a National Duty”, in which he advocated for the preservation of natural resources in the interests of the nation and its people. In this speech as well as others he gave during his term as President, he stressed that conservation did not just pertain to preserving natural resources or deferring their exhaustion; rather, it was closely intertwined with the patriotic duty of ensuring that the nation would be able to provide for future generations, and was second only to the “great fundamental questions of morality”. One such example of how Roosevelt connected conservation with morality is found in his “The New Nationalism” speech, given in Osawatomie, Kansas in 1910. Here, he compares the way he believes the nation must behave in terms of conservation to the manner in which a farmer acts in reference to his children and the land that provides for them.
The Interstate Highway Act of 1956(National and Defense Highways Act) was one of the largest public efforts that had constructed 41,000 miles of the system over a 10 year period. It was a work that had greatly revolutionized the way the world progresses while also enriching the quality of life for almost every American citizen. This event was important enough to remain in the textbook because socially it made traveling more efficient while also allowing citizens to travel to many more places inexpensively,economically because goods were able to be transported more productively which ultimately allowed many companies to lower transportation/production costs and enhance productivity/profits,higher gas prices due to increased production of cars,and
In conclusion, it was because of Theodore Roosevelt’s unique background and experience that enabled him to facilitate a Conservationist movement. This Conservationist movement brought an innovative ideology which encouraged the promotion and preservation of wildlife and our environment. Roosevelt’s leadership not only affected the era of his leadership, but Conservationism carries into present time in aspects of various presidential programs and

National parks are a place where people can go enjoy nature at its most natural state. Many other “natural” things in the world have been mutated, or have been changed to make it more beautiful and more appealing to people. However, a National Park is something that has been around most likely for years and should not changed but instead preserved so that years into the future people can still enjoy its natural look. “Congress decreed that 2.2 million acres be reserved and withdrawn… dedicated and set apart as a public park or pleasuring ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people”(Layzer, 279). National parks were for people to enjoy in a way that is enjoying to them.

Safety of our citizens is of utmost importance in creating a robust society. Building sustainable communities that are inclusive, secure and sensitive to needs of the citizens will continue to be of national priority. However, over the years, crime has stymied this endeavour.

Good policing, targeted social interventions and an efficient judicial system are needed to help our nation thrive.

For example, The Ferry has magnificent scenery that flaunts the crystal waters of the Potomac and Shenandoah. Even Thomas Jefferson declared that it “is perhaps one of the most stupendous scenes in nature”. It also shows the importance of African American civil rights because of Storer College, John Brown’s Fort, and Maryland Heights. The park attracts tourists which helps the economy of the state since tourism in our largest industry.

The staff ride to the Marin Headlands was an amazing way to tie America’s history to our current senior enlisted leadership. Assigning each group a different site at the park made it a more realistic experience. Anybody can go to a historic site and read a few sign post, but the research each group put into the assignment made in a more memorable experience. Not only was it a learning experience but also a team building exercise. I believe the time researching the material and being together at the site brought our group closer as a team than any other project in the
In his opinion, the great blessings that America enjoyed were something that every country should experience. Therefore he fought for the ratification of the Treaty as it would support his belief, with one of his strategies being the League of Nations.

Lastly, I support Donald Trump and his ideas on common core. He believe that common core standards should be set by the states and local levels instead of the national levels. I agree with this because I believe that the state 's understand where their students and schools struggle more. A common core standard is necessary because there needs to be a baseline of information students need to know. I strongly believe that there should be a baseline standard but the state should set that baseline standard.
