The “Speech to the Second Virginia Convention”, was meant to persuade the American people that the British could not be reasoned with, and, therefore a war with the British was inevitable. This speech was a call to action, as Patrick Henry felt that Americans could no longer sit idly as a war began in the north. For Henry would rather have death than live without liberty. Henry spoke honestly in an attempt to gain followers that would join him in the war against Britain.

As a result of publishing this piece, it brought hate to Paine and yet praise to him. The simple fifty page pamphlet attempted to drive many Americans unwilling to break from Great Britain and to rebel and become part of the independence. By doing so, he declared that Britain was overtaking the American’s lives, the English form of government had an unscrupulous King. Despite this happening, George Washington believed that after reading “Common Sense” to the soldiers, they were refreshed and developed the desire to fight the war unconditionally till a winner was brought upon the two sides. George Washington declared that “Common Sense” drove the war into their favor, and thus quoted, “I find Common Sense is working a powerful change in the minds of men” (Bigelow 102- 103).
The thing that really got the gears turning and set things into motion for change was World War Two.The reason why this was so significant was because of Hitler and his dominant race and when other countries like Great Britain saw that there wasn’t really a difference between that and Jim Crow it made a lot of people see it differently. In 1948 President Harry Truman tried to end Jim Crow by promoting racial equality and in protest of that four states abandoned his democratic party and that caused his first attempt to fail and later when he was secretary of state he put armed troops in states and cities to enforce equality and the troops wouldn 't leave until the states agreed to end segregation. "I wanted to remind myself and others of the old Jim Crow, so that we can remind ourselves that we 're still living in the new Jim Crow. I feel it 's important to dress in the fashion of the times" -Jidenna. In this quote they talk about how the old Jim Crow is over but the new one is in and what they mean by the new Jim Crow may not be as bad as the first one but it is definitely still there, with all of the stereotypes about how all white people and how black people are thugs and gang members.

As politicians continued to send more and more troops to Vietnam, Americans began to question the involvement of the US and voiced their disapproval openly. In 1963, Bob Dylan recorded, “Masters of War,” as an angry protest song that voiced the opinions of the young people who were protesting against the war.

In an attempt to enhance backing for World War II among American soldiers and people, the U.S. government wanted Hollywood to produce films to sell the war. These movies were either based on the war itself, or movie that possessed a war atmosphere. Most famously, Frank Capra produced and directed a series of several propaganda war films called, Why We Fight (1942-1945). The film series were used to promote how American soldiers fighting in the war as well as means to get U.S. citizens to support the war was justifiable.

This was America’s right, however, Britain was not respecting that because they would seize American vessels that were going to or coming from a destination where the British did not want American commerce. A Democratic- Republican congressman made a speech where he foresaw the threat of war. In his speech he asked a question of whether to abandon or defend America’s commercial and maritime rights (Document 2). He also said that ours rights were being violated and if British continues to do this America will have to resist. America should definitely defend their commercial and maritime rights, because trading is a big part of its economy.

Hitler, the political leader of Germany during WW2, strived to create a “perfect race”. The building of this race was at the expense of Jews and other minorities he thought of as inferior. Since the minorities were less than human in Hitler’s eyes, he imagined that the art did not belong to them. Rather than Hitler stealing their art, in his eyes the Jews stole his art. This perspective differs greatly from Eisenhower’s, the Commander-in-Chief of the US army during WW2.
President Roosevelt approved several orders and committees that specifically targeted Japanese Americans on the West Coast, while war propaganda was created to instill fear and hatred of the Japanese in the American people. World War II not only exacerbated the racial tension within the American people, but also excused the racist actions taken by American government against the Japanese Americans, as the Americans then prided themselves for fighting in the “good war”.
