Though today many believe that education is what makes a person intelligent and successful, Mark Twain does a great job showing that even though Jim and Huck do not have high levels of education they both show high level thinking. Though intelligence is believed to have a direct correlation with education by some, Mark Twain shows quite the contrary in Huckleberry Finn Although Huck does not have a high level of education, you can clearly see he is very intelligent. An example his intelligence can be seen when Huck convinced three slave hunters that his sick father was aboard the raft with smallpox so that the hunters wouldn’t check to boat and find Jim. When Huck begins to hint that he has a father with smallpox in the boat, they begin to question him and one of the hunters starts, “Well,

An onlooking painter watches this scene unfold and has a dramatic reaction, where now he wants the government to kill him, when he said earlier that he wanted his death to be from himself.

Based on my interpretation of the story, Kurt’s main theme (a reoccuring theme in many of his works) is that the government does not care about who you are, they see all of their people as pieces on a game board. In other words, you are seen just as a statistic to the government and nothing more. Also, Kurt suggests the theme of a lack of individuality when he writes that the painter only
The boys become crueler after the killing of Simon takes place; killing a boy that was in their tribe and withheld the truth of the Beast contained no logic and destroyed Ralph internally. Ralph's leadership starts to fall apart at this moment due to the fact that his emotions are taking over him; he feels scared from the idea of murder, never being able to get home, and the beast. Ralph was not a leader at this time because he was not able to control himself and with that, he did not stop the boys from destroying Simon and the logic within him. The decision all these boys made together fully took away the whole importance of logic and their emotions took full control of them. Their ideas of fear are mostly shown at meetings called by the conch.

More often than not, they were over 2 metres and could have been used for warfare or hunting. It was encouraged that every freeman have a spear according to the Anglo-Saxon laws. Swords (sweord, secg, heoru, and ecg) were very hard to make and cost a lot of money, so not many people had them unless they were warriors or otherwise quite important. Helmets and chain-mail were worn by only the most important and richest Anglo-Saxon warriors. This meant that they had far more protection than most warriors.

Andrew Jackson was a good man since he won people 's heart by winning wars and by being one of the best president of the United States. He did so much for the people that they wanted him as president again in 1832. One good letter he wrote to congress was about a law.

The Patriots were the underdogs, no one expected the small Patriot army to beat the massive, powerful British army. How did they beat such a big army who had more than double the amount of soldiers as the Patriots? It was because the Patriots had strengths while the British army had weaknesses. The British did have stronger troops, better supplies, and a larger army. However they were thousands of miles away from their supplies, and their leader they also had no allies to help them along the way.
Many children dream of growing up to be the president one day. Few do, and even fewer are remembered by everyone for what they did while being president. Three of these few are Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. These are some of the greatest and strongest presidents of all time, but Thomas Jefferson was the strongest and smartest president because he was present and played a big part in government before the revolution, he played a huge role in the expedition of Lewis and Clark, and he had a huge impact on almost every aspect of society. Thomas Jefferson played a fairly big role in the American Revolution, and so did George Washington, but Abraham Lincoln wasn 't even alive.
