The Truth Behind The Speech In the spring of 1968 Martin Luther King Jr. made a trip to Memphis, Tennessee to support the sanitation workers who were on strike. The night on April 3 King gave his speech at the Mason Temple Church. As usual many people gathered to listen to the great words he spoke, but at the time they did not know what later events were to occur (History.com Staff). The next day at six p.m. as the great Martin Luther King stood on a second floor balcony of a motel, he was shot in the neck by a sniper (Assassination of MLK). Immediately after the fact they dispatched him straight to the hospital.
A wily, peasant-born leader, Villa joined with Emiliano Zapata to keep the spirit of rebellion alive in Mexico and harass the Carranza government. A year later, though, Wilson decided Carranza had made enough steps towards democratic reform to merit official American support, and the president abandoned Villa. Outraged, Villa turned against the United States. In January 1916, he kidnapped 18 Americans from a Mexican train and slaughtered them. A few weeks later, on this day in 1916, Villa led an army of about 1,500 guerillas across the border to stage a brutal raid against the small American town of Columbus, New Mexico.
The children both arrived in the tower in 1483 after the death of king Edward IV ; their uncle Richard Gloucester, who declared them illegitimate, stripped them of their titles. After a few months they were moved to the garden tower also known as the bloody tower and were said to have been seen playing in the court yard but by mid-1483 the children had disappeared. Later someone tried to claim to be Richard and tried to take the throne only to be executed in the tower (“6 Famous Prisoners of The Tower of London”). Violence and murder were also prevalent in the tower, which was most of the time a final farewell even for royals. Overbury was poisoned but it was said he died of natural causes, and while Charles I was king prisoners were sent to the dungeons and twenty four years later he was beheaded (Shuttlesworth, Dorothy Edwards, et al 23).
Among the most influential of his protests, Gandhi held the Salt March in March of 1930 and traveled 241 miles with tens of thousands of people, to the coast of India where he made his own salt.

On December 7, 1941, two months after Japan's attack on the Pearl Harbor, 48 American merchant ships had been sunk in the Atlantic Ocean not far from the United States Eastern seaboard by Nazi U-Boats. This onslaught was said to have officially begun on February 2, 1942, after the French ship Normandie, then the largest ship in the world, caught fire at New York City's Passenger Ship Terminal. The ship casualties led to Naval Intelligence suspecting that the Nazis were getting information on the Atlantic Ocean ship movements and logistics from their supporters and spies. The Naval Intelligence then decided to take action and fought back. While Naval Intelligence knew that organized crime had controlled the East Coast docks for years, an idea suddenly came up: why not ask the gangs for help?
The Preparedness Day parade was designed to lift morale in San Francisco in anticipation of the possible entry of the United States into World War I. Before the event, anti-war activists were harshly critical and during the parade a suitcase bomb went off, killing 10 and wounding 40.

In fact, they happen so often that some people grow desensitized to them, but Kees reacted differently. One might believe that, as nature applied its full force and awful attacks were carried out, Kees actually noticed and wrote them all down. Thus, “The Coming of the Plague” was written. According to Coyle, a fire on the ship, Morro Castle, burnt it to ash and took the lives of 137 passengers on September 8, 1934. After the inferno, the stanza “September was when it began” may very well have made its first appearance.
Because of this, Bush declared War on Terror in the Middle East and Afghanistan. This led to the deepening of hatred between USA and Middle East. Bin Laden, because of his actions, faced worldwide criticism, which ultimately led to his assassination in 2011 by US special forces.

In the film The Forgotten Plague by Chana Gazit, the story of a disease that usually resulted in death unfolds. Beginning in the early 19th century a disease named consumption swept the American nation, killing “one in seven of all the people who had ever lived”.
