Dr. Patrick Miller gave an amazing and interesting speech on the issue of the Confederate flag and monuments. The presenter went through the history of what the Confederate flag once stood for and how it became a symbol that affects minorities today. I really like how he was able to relate everything that was occurring in modern times. Something that surprised me is the vast amount of monuments that are still stand to this very day. Dr. Miller told the audience the great lengths people have gone to remove anything that is related to the Confederacy, for example, the many schools in the south were renamed after Obama since they were originally named after Confederate fugues, such as: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis.
Which amendment had been passed in late 1865 and what was it about? Who assassinated Lincoln on April 15? CHAPTER 4. 2 Fort Sumter Bull Run Stonewall Jackson was fighting for the Confederate Army. Ulysses S. Grant He was more dedicated to help the Confederate push the Union away from Richmond and would risk anything to lead him and his troops to a victory.
On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln gave a speech that, unbeknownst to him, would become one of the most recognized speeches in the history of the United States. The empowering speech was given in the midst of the gruesome civil war that began between the north and the south over the long-conflicted morality of slavery. Through one of the most highly remembered speeches of our history, The Gettysburg Address, Lincoln commemorates the dead and wounded soldiers at the site of the battle in Gettysburg through references to history, unificating diction and metaphors of life and death to unite the nation in a time of separation and provide a direction for the future of the country. Lincoln begins his essay utilizing historical references in order to illustrate to the public the basis of what the nation was founded upon. Through this, he reminds Americans the morals and ideals that the people are willing to spill blood for.
The very best president of the united states Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president and one of the most accomplished for his achievement in aboloshing slavery. Lincoln is giving his Inaugural address speech, reflecting about the civil war and how we were able to overcome all the violence and tragedy that came with it. Articulated by Lincoln about slaves and how they were a major sin that we the people committed, slaves were the cause of the civil war and neither side could come up with an agreement to end it. In the end, both sides prayed to God to save them, but none got that wish. The entire speech purpose is effective in convincing the audience that after the war is over we need to come together and unify the north and the south, Lincoln's purpose is effective in retelling to the audience how the civil war was a disaster and petty.
Robert E. Lee’s Impact on United States Government Official John F. Kelly once said that , “ He was a man that gave up his country to fight for his state .” To me that quote means , that he was willing to fight for what he believed even if it came down to fighting against people in the same country which he lived in . This quote proves that he would fight with all his best capabilities . Robert E. Lee was a important figure in American History , because he was General of the Confederate States during the Civil War , he served as a superintendent of West Point and he was given command of the wounded General Joseph E. Johnston 's embattled army on the Virginia peninsula. Some people say that he was born on January 19 , 1807 , but others say that he was born in 1806 . They say that , because if you look at his entry in the Encyclopedia Virginia you would
Throughout the first paragraph of King’s speech, he used emotional diction with words such as struggle, poverty, and poor to prove that the war in Vietnam was bringing down the American’s and their families fighting overseas. King proved this partly with the quote, “America would never invest the necessary funds… in the rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued…” (King, Beyond, 9). King was establishing his point that America was more troubled about healing and adjusting other countries, but would never invest the same in their own country. He was in the process of proving that it wasn 't a money issue in America, but an equality issue. Along with, “...and the almost facile connection between the war in Vietnam
Patrick Henry an American colonist who opposed of British rule spoke out on March 23, 1775 to explain his disagreement on the British having control over the American colonies. In "Speech in the Virginia Convention," Patrick Henry uses the rhetorical appeals ethos, pathos, and logos. Patrick Henry uses the rhetorical appeals to persuade Virginian patriots to go to war seeing no other option and believing there was no more working out disagreements. First Patrick Henry uses the rhetorical appeal ethos by appealing to the audience trust and credibility. For instance, “...An act of disloyalty towards the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings."
In this next paragraph Thomas Paine talks about a summer soldier explaining that we need people to fight for the right fight in the worst of times. He goes on to talk about Joan of Arc using her as a symbol of honor, liberty, and dignity. He tries using these examples as a way of telling the people that we need to fight and you need to be strong enough to stand against britain. Thomas Paine also talks about the flames of liberty saying this is what we need to fight for. He also talks about the powers of hell and that they are limmeted sygnifying that britain is not an unstopable
Battled close Antietam Creek at Sharpsburg, Maryland, was the bloodiest day in American fighting. Lee battled McClellan to a draw. A few students of history call it a Union victory,however, McClellan missed an opportunity to decimate Lee 's armed force and end the war. Taking after this fight Lincoln chose to issue the Emancipation Proclamation January 1, 1863. The British who were considering offering the South some assistance with deciding not to after the Proclamation in light of the fact that the war was presently being battled to free the
The same could be said for soldiers in the unit. It all comes from a culture created at the top where an oft-tyrannical leader can be unpredictable except in his unwillingness to listen to new ideas. Ultimately, I don’t know if Longstreet could have convinced Lee to withdraw. At this point of the war, Lee was convinced he could and needed to end the war in Gettysburg.
The Warrior Ethos is to never leave a fallen comrade, to fight all threats of any and all Americans; both foreign and at home. When a soldier sees something wrong, a threat to the way of life, he or she stands up and takes action. Donald Trump states that U.S. soldiers “would blindly ignore their oath, their training and their conscience to follow what were clearly illegal, unethical and immoral orders.” In the article A Soldier 's View on Trump, the author Mark Hertling uses pathos, epiphany, anecdotes, and common themes to get people to agree with his opinions about Donald Trump. Mark Hertling talked about his life in the military. He mentioned how it had an impact on his life, saying that the horrifying things he saw there happens in his dreams.
Patriotism was a consistent idea among the Union and Confederate warriors. As per journals and diaries left by some Northern warriors, they were battling for the Union. Confederate fighters shared a typical aphorism of live free beyond words. They felt if their nation wasn 't free, life wasn 't worth living. Even though the South and North fight with such ferocity against each other our textbook never gives a clear reasons way.
