On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln gave a speech that, unbeknownst to him, would become one of the most recognized speeches in the history of the United States. The empowering speech was given in the midst of the gruesome civil war that began between the north and the south over the long-conflicted morality of slavery. Through one of the most highly remembered speeches of our history, The Gettysburg Address, Lincoln commemorates the dead and wounded soldiers at the site of the battle in Gettysburg through references to history, unificating diction and metaphors of life and death to unite the nation in a time of separation and provide a direction for the future of the country. Lincoln begins his essay utilizing historical references in order to illustrate to the public the basis of what the nation was founded upon. Through this, he reminds Americans the morals and ideals that the people are willing to spill blood for.
Some of the Mongol rampages had little to no survivors, others had up to 2,000,000 fatalities (Doc. E). Furthermore, in a manuscript titled Book of Kings, there is an art piece made around 1300, that shows the execution of a group of people (Doc. F). In detail, some people have their head buried in the ground, and others are being shot in the chest with arrows (Doc.
Genghis Khan Even though Genghis Khan and his army killed 30 to 40 million people through his conquering of most of middle Asia with the help of a great army, he had the most powerful attack strategy in the world. In his early days he was know as Temujin. Temujin’s early life was very harsh and brutal, he grew up in a poor village with his mother and brothers (his father was poisoned when he was much younger).

One day himself and his older brother were hunting and they got into a fight over a small deer, it resulted in Temujin killing his older brother and his brother was never seen again.
The difference in the two accounts is the prelude to the battle. According to Lakota Chief Red Horse, he with many Sioux Indians were only moving across the land in attempts to find a place to settle. When they did settle next to the Little Bighorn River, there were many Native Americans with them ten different tribes and eleven including themselves. The account from the military standpoint was the Sioux, and Cheyenne were hostile over the Black Hills and was corresponding with Sitting Bull. From the event of the Sioux Nation on the move, the U.S. Calvary dispatched three units to attack.
America has been very unkind to the Native American. Throughout history, from Christopher Columbus’ arrival in 1492, who called the natives “Indios”, thus beginning the label of the Natives as “Indians”, to the 19th Century, a time of enormous hubris, greed, prejudice, Indians suffered enormous violence. From the foundation of the Manifest Destiny in 1845 giving white men all the privilege, while the Native’s saw their culture, and homes ripped away from them. Dee Brown’s “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” brilliantly captures the actual truth of the plight of the Native Americans from 1860 to 1890. Dee Brown’s reason for writing “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee” was to tell the truth of the Native Americans.
Crisp goes on to explain many incorrect facts he had found in documents which had been inaccurate, biased, or censored. Spending a lot of time focusing on the truths, he first studies new information based on the text in front of him, and his previous opinion and knowledge on the matter. Once he asses the information, if he does not agree Crisp will search for proof and other facts to supplement why his beliefs are this way. For example, on page 39 Crisp offers his opinion on Houston’s speech which supported the argument for Texas’s independence from Mexico. Crisp says “I was stunned and disbelieving.
