Thesis: Rice appears to have two major arguments in his book. The first argument is that Bacon’s Rebellion had a lasting impact on early America. He ties the rebellion to later anti-Catholic sentiment and ultimately how the English colonists responded to the Glorious Revolution. His second argument is that race played a significant role in unifying colonists, specifically by giving them an outside enemy and reducing some internal class tensions. This argument culminates in his assertion that Bacon’s Rebellion was critical for the development of the Old South.
The experience that you get from reading this is similar to being told a bed time story because of how you are able to imagine and visualize what is happening. Personally, as a take away I now know the origin of how Rome was built and some of the myths behind it like Romulus and Remus for example. I was surprised that Livy would describe both tales of a story too because in my experience ancient scholars would only write what they believed and that was that. Then in the book when Romulus was King, how he tricked his neighbors to go into Rome, so he and his people could take women to marry and how it ended with the women saying it was all their fault sets the standards of how women were perceived back then. Which was trouble, even though the women didn’t do anything (not including the part of the book where Tullia convinced her husband to kill her father), but that’s how it all worked back

Constantine I was also know as Constantine the Great and was the first emperor for Rome. But he called himself a, Christian.

The Albigensian Crusade will differ from foreign crusades in fighting fellow Christians, distance would be drastically closer compared to the Holy Lands, and how this particular crusade was also different in the beginning of how it
The United States used some of the practices Ancient Rome used with government and laws. The Romans used jury trials in court just like we use today in court. The saying “innocent until proven guilty” also came form Ancient Rome practices just like we use today in our criminal justice program.
The crusades were a religious dispute between Christianity and Islam that took place in order for the Christians to take back their holy land, Jerusalem, from the Muslims. Urban II initiated the crusades at the Council of Clermont through a speech, with an audience of noblemen and clerics. His main goal was to urge “European princes to stabilize Christendom’s borders and then go further to recapture Jerusalem and restore Christian rule to the holy land” (Bentley et al. 422). These expeditions sparked new political, religious, and economic developments for the world. The crusades were a huge accomplishment for the people of Christian faith because new people began to convert.
Near the beginning of his renowned essay, "Civil Disobedience," Henry David Thoreau appeals to his fellow citizens when he says, "...I ask for, not at once no government, but at once a better government. " This request serves as a starting point from which the rest of "Civil Disobedience" emerges. Thoreau 's essay is particularly compelling because of its incorporation of rhetorical strategies, including the use of logos, ethos, pathos, purposive discourse, rhetorical competence and identification. I will demonstrate how each of these rhetorical techniques benefit Thoreau 's persuasive argument. Thoreau uses logos throughout his essay to strengthen his argument with reasoning.
In conclusion, the goals outlined by Justinian in my opinion included the reformation of the existing Roman law, the expansion of Byzantium, and the support for religious unity, were all achieved to different degrees by one of the greatest emperors of the Western world, Justinian.

Justinian’s ambition and servitude towards the restoration of the Roman Empire is admirable and inspiring. Not only did Justinian’s legacy help shape Rome and the Roman Empire for years after his death, but his legacy leaves history with
