He ends his hopeful message by saying “to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations” (Lincoln). This final message from President Lincoln in his address clearly demonstrates his overarching purpose- to instill a sense of togetherness in the American people as a whole. It was purposeful when Lincoln ended his address with this message. It held a strong message of peace and bonding together so that Lincoln’s address would have a lasting impact on Americans. Lincoln uses optimistic diction when employing words such as "cherish" and "lasting peace" to convey a message of harmony.
Once again addressing a general audience Adler uses relaxed language so the reader understands the biography completely along with getting across the point the Lincolns life experiences led to the Gettysburg address. The author emphasizes the difficult times of Lincolns life assuming this will appeal to the readers’ sensitive side. Although Lincoln did have a rough life having to earn everything he had the author takes a bias point of view making Lincoln’s life seem like a sad soap opera while it all led him to deliver his most influential work the Gettysburg
Some people might not like the new president but there is nothing you can do. So today, we will talk about President George Washington, and how he was a great president. We will talk about his years when he was in office, second we would talk about his birth, and his childhood. We will also talk about his beliefs, and what he did as a President. To begin with, Mary Ball had President George
Americans needed to rebuild trust in their leadership after the failures in Vietnam War. Carter’s basic ideas were clear from the beginning of his elections campaign. Carter was a Democrat, and also was an idealist. “We are a proudly idealistic nation,” (Carter, 1997) Carter said in his Inaugural address. He wanted to reflect the highest moral principals in his foreign policy but I believe Carter had high expectations for his foreign policy but he did not know how to meet them.
Lincoln also uses the rhetorical device, personification, during the the beginning of the speech when he talks about the founding fathers.“ Our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty…”(464). In the excerpt, Lincoln is discussing the past and how it relates to America after the Civil War. Lincoln also uses personification later in his speech when he talks about the world. “.. but it [world] can never forget what they did here.” (465) Here, Lincoln is discussing that the world can not forget about the many soldiers who died
The military draft was a very controversial topic during these times. Some people believed it violated a person’s inalienable rights while others argued it was a part of being an American to be honored to show your patriotism; however, if you refused to serve, you were shunned and beaten by local villagers (Greenberg). President at the time, “Lyndon Johnson, called the draft "a part of America, a part of the process of our democracy"” arguing that the draft was an honorable and patriotic sacrifice for young men to make for their country (Greenberg). With the major cultural difference between the the 1960’s and today, less young men are enlisting to serve in the military. According to the National Public Radio, an estimated 8.7 million men served during The Vietnam War while only 2.2 million men serve in today’s military.
Daniel Galindo p.6 The speech of Patrick Henry The Virginia convention had a well written speech written by Patrick Henry. He uses persuasion techniques in his speech to persuade everyone at the convention such as Pathos. He uses this wisely and amazing for the speech he gave. They were in the time period of Britain taking control and they had no independence. The people very well wanted that independence but they are feared to do anything to fight for it.
The rock, the river, and the tree, used in the poem On the Pulse of the Morning by Maya Angelou read during the inauguration of President Bill Clinton, speak of times in which they have lived through. A time that was simpler, and more humble. However, these three objects in nature have seen many wars, and much hate between different races. They ask for a change that allows for people to come together and live humbly amongst one another. This change is one that President Bill Clinton said he would strive for during his time in office.
The statue of Cincinnatus is also for former President George Washington, since he too, was a farmer who lead troops through the Revolutionary War. People found many seminaries between the two men. This statue has evidence that people wanted others to know how successful Cincinnatus really was, because since this was a Roman leader and doesn’t really have a huge effect on Americans, people still wanted his statue in America. This shows that even though he didn’t directly effect Americans, people still wanted to recognize him as a “hero” in the Ancient Western Civilizations. He sacrificed his own personal time and needs to put them toward his country, and help them win the wars with neighboring enemies.
The farewell speech by George Washington acts as a framework for our future Presidents of this country. The speech is full of conventions that are now part of the administrative framework and act as a ‘Bible’ for running the government. One of his first decisions was to reject proposals for a good part of his followers, to become the new king of the colonies. Washington was clear in not repeating the monarchical and absolutist experience just like the rest of Europe, and insisted vehemently on a balanced approach between the republican, federalists. He was reelected for a second term and was proposed to become the President for a third from 1797, which he did not accept.
George Washington, being the first president, felt that in order to maintain structure in the government after he was no longer in charge, had to leave a letter to his country’s citizens. Washington began his address by giving thanks and appreciation to everyone for giving him the opportunity to lead their country and explaining his reasoning for declining another term. Along with these reasons, he pointed out some of the flaws of his presidency, admitting to the public that he was not a perfect American leader and that he is not a stencil into which all other presidents should be carved out of. While he stated that he was not impeccable, Washington did continue on in his address to offer some advice to the future of America. Washington
McCullough reassures us how important this year was for American history. He places his views through his extensive use of research, from battle plans, letters, journal entries, and more. But as important as the Declaration of Independence and political aspects may be, it does not fit in with McCullough’s purpose. His purpose concludes military aspects of 1776 in the war itself. McCullough’s solidifies his views when he said, “Such courage and high ideals were of little consequence, of course, the Declaration itself being no more than a declaration without military success against the most formidable force on earth” (145).
Bertrand Russell once said, “War doesn’t determine who’s right, only who’s left.” The Vietnam War was one in particular where soldiers often struggled with who the enemy was. War is too often thought of as something to be won, but this novel reveals it is simply something to be survived, and the shell of a person that is left will not be the same one that walked into battle. That is a jarring reality very prominent in Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Myers. It is a lesson soldier Richard Perry learns all too well on his journey from innocent young boy to Vietnam veteran. Very early it is made clear that Perry is not just a new soldier, but is in a place that can and will change him forever.
Such as the following. After John Fitzgerald Kennedy was out of office in between elections, he was still focused on the economic and political issues and conflicts in the US. While JFK was still alive, he remodeled America’s politics. Albeit his inexperience before entering office is thought process and decision making was reasonable and becoming of a rookie. There was the reasoning behind him wanting to end the war, however is was not the right way to end the war and there were many refutations to the decision.
Rejecting or not given me a fair hearing as one of the best Supreme Court nominee by the President of the United States of America, because it is the last year of his Presidency, is unconstitutional in Harvard or any Princeton law books, the books inside of chamber is included. You don 't trust me, ask Mr. Trump 's Honorable sister, the Honorable Justice Ginsburg or the rest of the Honorable Supreme Court Justices of the United States of America. But I am standing to fight any Graduates, Professors, Congressmen, Senators or House Speakers. I have been dedicating my life serving you the American people. "Anytime you disagree with the Honorable Justice Garland, you know you are in difficult area."
