He has chosen to title his essay “Losing the War.” This however is not originally the title. The longer title is as follows; “World War II had faded into movies, anecdotes, and archives that nobody cares about anymore. Are we losing the war?” Albeit subtle subtle, this is perhaps one of the most powerful choices Sandlin made in his argument. He is suggesting that although the war is considered “won” in the history books, the trauma it caused —as the general nature of the war— is anything but victorious. He is also arguing that the American public is, actually, losing the war.
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.
Despite the mistakes and struggles that the Americans faced, the advantages and the simple strategies they used enabled them to win the war over Britain. On the other hand, Britain overconfidence and the underestimation of the Americans are the main causes of their loss in the war. At first glance, it seems that the British armies could win the Revolutionary war. When Britain entered the war, it had two advantages; the British Isles had 11 million inhabitants that outnumbered the 2.5 colonists. Also, Britain had one of the best
To give the period after the War of 1812 the name of “Era of Good Feelings” would be somewhat-inaccurate. America’s victory in the war surely did unite the states and brought upon some “good feelings” such as unity and growth as a thriving nation, but these good feelings were not all that came out of the war. The states were heavily separated even after the war with conflicts amongst each other and within themselves. Examples of America’s sectionalism come from their social, political, and economic differences, all in which pertain to distrust between the northern and southern parts of the country. Despite all of this, however, there is no denying that there was a sense of pride and togetherness during this time period.
“The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History” by John Barry is a great book for anyone who wants to know about the history of diseases that made an impact on the worlds history. Even though John Barry was not necessarily a doctor, he did know a lot about history and how diseases work. John Barry said “How prepared are we for a new pandemic? At this writing we are not prepared at all” (Barry). John Barry’s book shows us that we need to be very careful when it comes to diseases and our health.
In return, they may be notorious or famous in this case, all at the risk of a tiny mistake. Lincoln was brave for having the courage to seek success after everyone turned him down. This allowed him to lead the US to success during the Civil War. Lincoln was turned down in 1832, 1834, 1838, 1843 and 1858 before being elected as president. Lincoln 's was faced with the challenge of reuniting the shattered halves of the two unions during his time as commander in chief.
Alexander achieve a feat as great as they say it to be, he would defeat the ever growing mighty Persian empire. He was the first person to win against Persia since 646 BC when king Ashurbanipal of Assyria raids the Elamite capital (Susa) in Persia. Alexander the Great, III, of Macedon was an important leader and left an inspiring legacy because he was a military genius,a liberator and connector, and an admirable king. Alexander was a genius, showing exquisite knowledge of battle tactics and strategy. In the battle of
The one voice to unite all to a cause, the one voice to call upon their people to stop an aggressive foe, the one voice to gave their country a dying purpose of perils that have forced onto them. Roosevelt and Churchill where the voice to their country. Roosevelt spoke seriously and slow spoken for the people already knew him and already knew what has happened on their door step; “as commander in chief of the Army and Navy” (Roosevelt 2). Churchill spoke sorely and hopeful for his country; “our task is not only to win the battle - but to win the war” (Churchill 3). Even though there voices were different their, they still gave them purpose.
“ Success is counted sweetest- By those who ne 'er succeed.To comprehend a nectar-Requires sorest need. The whole stanza explains that success is seen greatest to those who dont experience it often. By the poem talking about “nectar” it talks about failure, losing, and everything wrong. The second stanza, “Not one of all the purple Host-Who took the Flag today-Can tell the definition-So clear of Victory”.This talks about the scenario of war, meaning that not all who won can understand their achievement. Those who died in the war experienced victory because they lost their lives.
Kluger’s article was very well written. He used his frustration to draw the reader in and to pull them onto his side. The cure to cancer may not be as easy as some think. Kluger provided a side as to why curing cancer is not a moonshot due to all of the different types and it’s
The American’s or colonists’ way of achieving their independence actually in my opinion would not be consider a smart idea in a perfect world but since it is not a perfect world. Their decision was great. Of course, casualties are an issue due to the war or either diseases, but those soldiers and battles made America what it is today. The colonists may have not accomplished their goal in a way they would want to but it accomplished the goals it should and achieved even more goals. Peace treaties were signed between nations and America got its independence.

The sinking of the Lusitania was not caused by a natural disaster, but was purposefully sunk in spite of a war. The Lusitania was one of the most famous shipwrecks in history, other than the Titanic, because it was the start of the World War I. America has definitely gone through the worst of times. What is so great about America, though, is that everyone unites together to fix a problem. Many passengers arrived for a relaxing, wonderful cruise but found themselves thrown into chaos as a torpedo entered the ship. This caused America to help out in the war by lending Britain equipment, soldiers, and jobs during this tough time.
To conclude, one of the “great wars” might have been deadly and we lost so many American soldiers. Our heroes were keeping us free during that time. Arguable, they are still keeping us free, and definitely safe from foreign terrorists. This war cost us to lose men but we still won and gained freedom. It
