He was truly a gift from God when he led America to war with Britain and though the writing of the constitution. Not only was he a political figure who was most remembered for his part in writing the constitution, but he was more than that, he was secretary of state and president during times in which had
There were a number of both positive and negative changes at the time John Marshall lived. Born in 1755 in Germantown, John Marshall’s was greatly influenced by a series of events. One significant influence on his later life as a Supreme Court judge was the time he spent as a Revolutionary soldier. As a soldier, Marshall highly admired General George Washington and witnessed some of the greatest changes in American history. Some of the positive changes include the making of the Constitution of the United States.
George Washington was indispensable in launching the U.S government. Although many opposed his political views at the time, Washington's leadership capabilities were unquestionable after his victory in the American Revolution. Our victory over Great Britain would have been doubtful if not for Washington and his judgement. Before becoming president, Washington led in drafting the Constitution, which is the foundation of America. When he became president, Washington believed in unity and a strong central power.
He was attacked by the press as well. In his speech, he gave America advice for the future. An important theme that George Washington reflected was nobility. He understood that he could not rule by tyranny and stepped down from power. His humbleness has carried the United States into a tradition of presidency for centuries.
This idea of leadership style, combined with looking at what Theodore Roosevelt did during his presidency, is very similar to Trump’s way of leading our nation, although they came into office with different political experience. The speech is very much focused on nationalism and on foreign diplomacy, which foreshadows such focus throughout Theodore Roosevelt’s presidency. His clear nationalist emphasis is seen when he mentions that all citizens have a duty and all must work hard, which works to his advantage in getting the attention of the middle, working class and placing himself as a populist, since he says “our first duty is to our own people” (Roosevelt, 1905). By doing so, he quickly gained the attention of the media and the love of the public, which is what allowed him to win another term
People started to like george now that he was becoming the first president of the united states ever. After presidency george resigned to the army and his office which nobody has done before. Many people said that george was one of the best presidents in the
As the president of US, Kennedy has an automatic ethos. However, due to his young age and his Roman Catholic belief, it is still crucial for him to enhance his ethos in the beginning of his presidency. Kennedy first refers to the shared roots between the audience and himself, “We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution”. The audience and the speaker are all the successors of the great funders of United States, who fought for liberty and independence. Kennedy then points out other visible shared experiences: “born in this century” represents he is with the younger generation.
Abhraham Lincoln is the president whom impacted America the most and was the strongest. The first president of our country was George Washington, and although he was an impeccable leader, not the best when set side to Abraham Lincoln. Few individuals might say Washington was the best because he had originated the Citizen President. "He showed his tremendous leadership skills on the field of battle," (Weston 4), and also served in the French and Indian war, however he still does not compare to Lincoln. One of the major problems in America during the time Abraham Lincoln was president, was the civil war.
The antebellum period took place before the civil war. During this time period, one can thoroughly see accomplishments of the presidents in charge during that time.There is one who stood out the most based on my criteria and his outstanding achievements and it was George Washington . He was one with the most accomplishments, foreign policies and impacted the union the most after his presidency. Being in charge of a nation is never easy no matter how much experience or prepared one is, issues are always going to arise whether it be political, economic,or social issues. However there were problems some of these U.S presidents could’ve prevented but they didn’t, which is why one can set aside and easily eliminate Franklin Pierce, Millard
Words can often influence more of a president's legacy. One of the most influential speakers to take executive office was president Barack Obama. In his inaugural speech in 2009; President Obama referenced God having a plan for the United States by saying, "The knowledge that God calls on us to shape an uncertain destiny"6. He continues to feed the beast by saying, "We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense." This speech has many similarities to President Polk's.
