His father was Josiah Franklin and his mother was Abiah Folger. At age seven-teen Benjamin proposed to a fifteen year old by the name of Deborah Read. Like Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin was a great author and he did very well as an author. In his great life he will probably always be remembered as being on the one hundred dollar bill. He died on April 17, 1790 in his home from a sickness called Pleurisy.
Jackson was too strong of a leader when he decided he wanted to switch out the people in the public offices. He then used his power to toy with the ones who wanted to be appointed. Andrew was using his power as a leader to corrupt the ones who wanted to be appointed (Jackson’s Approach to Governing). In “The Trail of Tears” he was being a strong leader by kicking out the American Indians. He gave himself to much power to allow them to be forced out of their homes.
Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
Because of the fact that he did he had protected Asia from the mongols because of family ties. In Conclusion, the mongols were extremely barbaric, ruthless, cruel people who took the lives and cities of so many because of the want for power. They did not have sympathy for the lives took. They had many “throne-takers” or “heirs”, if you will, take over and do the same things Genghis Khan had did. They did things that would give them the title “barbarians.” Because of all of the evidence it makes it right to say they were very
He exemplified the ways of both a hero and a villain. However, it is my opinion that he is a villain. I believe this because he could be an extremely violent leader and because he never fully reigned over one of the places he conquered/ruled. He is a villain because he murdered thousands of people and soldiers from different nations. Alexander tortured many of his victims and then he killed them.
In conclusion,I believe that Andrew Jackson is not democratic. You may have read about how he was a very popular president and how he had 2 terms of presidency,how he is on our twenty dollar bill,etc, but no matter what good he did, his bad history will always have a black mark on his image. He acted more like a king than a president, he made his own rules and manipulated people to get what he wanted. In his whole lifetime, he had, obviously, done way more dictation than
This worked out to a killing rate of fourteen victims a minute over the ninety-six-hour bloodbath”. That is absolutely insane. Christopher Columbus may have killed people for shady reasons, he didn’t rip out the beating heart of innocent people, which may be one of the most painful ways to die. Even outside of sacrifices, apparently “crime and street carnage were commonplace” in the Aztec empire. Some Native Americans weren’t as peaceful as many make them out to be.
