From this profession, Coolidge soon became the mayor of Northampton, state senator, and then lieutenant governor (Encyclopædia 891). During his time as the governor of Massachusetts, he was involved in the Boston Police Strike of 1919 where he captured the attention of the nation (“About Coolidge”).

The 1950’s was a moment in American history when rock and roll was about to turn everything upside down in American culture. Every week hundreds of singles were being released by record companies. Grease is a musical based on the transformation from the 1950’s to the 1960’s not caring about repression and tradition and living for freedom and adventure.

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.
On January 8th, 1935 one of the greatest influences to pop and country was born. Elvis Aaron Presley changed the way people heard and saw music through his songs and the way he performed them.

It is after 100 years of progress and social reform that I am here today, honoring writings of a muckraker from the 1800’s. Thank you all for being here today at the 100th Anniversary celebration to commemorate the bold and rebellious Susan B. Anthony. While creating a revolution when it comes to women’s voting rights, she also made a huge movement when it came to the abolishment of slavery in the United States. In 1848, Susan B. Anthony became a teacher in New York, and became involved in the teacher’s union when she discovered that male teachers had a monthly salary of about $10.00, while most of the other female teachers earned around $3.00 a month.
Dave Matthews was an exceptional player who brought something fresh to the table where the music industry was dominated by rap and grime music. His music, instead of containing lyrics that hold contempt for others, preached acceptance of all polishes. Matthews was also an incredible success with successful multiple visits and a great fan base that allowed Matthews to achieve four platinum albums, and one independent album gold. The music of Dave Matthews preaches acceptance of cultures, and I think Matthews intends to shift the point of persuasion of people about different cultures through his speech. Dave Matthews describes his songs as “therapy”, an effort to help listeners deal with a company “where racial discrimination is dead alive” and where people can be overpowered by a world before ruling out of command.

Ray Bradbury, fully known as Raymond Douglas Bradbury, was born in Waukegan, Illinois on August 22, 1920, and is a Pulitzer Prize winning author. from a young age, Ray Bradbury loved writing, reading, and acting. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 showed his depiction of what will happen if society becomes overly consumed within, and highly dependant on the use of technology.

Jackson changed that with his loud gatherings encouraging more votes to go to him. Good or bad Andrew Jackson brought a lot of changes into our nation to help make it what it is today. He finished his eight years of term in office in 1837 and died in 1845. Many professors thank him for his
John Simon, a drama critic said he was "as long on talent as on legs", which would prove to be true in the years to come.

Throughout all of my years in history class the 1920’s have always been one of the most fascinating decades to learn about. The decade did not gain its nickname “The Roaring Twenties” by being drab and lifeless the whole time.

Klein first introduces the readers to Charles E. Mitchell or “Sunshine Charley” who was the president of National City Bank.
