The way America values human rights is a big part of the lasting impression Abraham Lincoln made. During the Civil War, the United States had trouble with staying as a united nation. According to Luke and Michael Paulsen, "the United States is the nation it is today because of Lincoln 's unswerving constitutional commitment to maintaining the Union" (4). This evidence concludes that we owe gratitude towards Abraham Lincoln for our nation as it is currently. Additionally, Lincoln has made a permanent mark on the Constitution, known as the 13th amendment.
He have used several metaphors of family. The main idea of this metaphor is that people must save the country and the peace which inherited from the ancestry.

Patriots: Loyalty to One’s Country “Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of the men who follow and of the man who leads that gains the victory” (George S. Patton (1885-1945)) The primary focus of the two assigned sources is a commentary on patriotism as a reflection of American nationalism, and how such beliefs may develop an individual’s willingness to sacrifice their lives and acts of courage to defend their nation. Patriotism may be defined as the love, support, and defense of one’s country. George S. Patton, the speaker of the assigned quote, once stated in regards to the topic of patriotism that, “It is a proud privilege to be a soldier – a good soldier … [with] discipline, self-respect, pride
The American flag, the Pledge and other US Civic practices have become symbols of our democracy. Naturally a common argument for the mandatory recitation, or at the very least optional practice, of the pledge is that we are honoring our freedom and veterans. One veteran states “It fills our heart and makes us remember things that we pledged to do. The things that we did for our country, in time of combat” (Source E). These
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).

Furthermore, I would be exploring a varieties of world war one poems to compare how war is presented in different viewpoints. In Henry V Shakespeare ‘once more unto the breach’ speech, shows war to create hero’s that are confident, whereas the poem ‘Dulce et Decorum est’ shows hero’s to be scared and vulnerable. He makes war sound very patriotic. He say ‘close the wall up with our English dead’. He is saying that they are willing to die for their country and proud to be a part of England and supporting them.
He states, “Men are equal now. The rights have now come back with freedom and equality” (Lincoln, paragraph 4). This shows that the war has rebirth the nation and made it pure in freedom and equality. This also shows that the nation was not equal for all people before, but because of the war it is now equal for everyone. Another point is, “Now we are engaged in a great Civil War, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure” (Lincoln, paragraph 2).
Understanding that some Military Occupations are tougher than others, yet our goal remains; to mold diverse Leaders by providing them the foundational standards as American Soldiers. Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless-Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage, are the core values we live and breathe as American Soldiers. We must not forget or become laxed because these values are the backbone to the Army and are foundational truths to our success. As Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO) we will reprioritize our conduct, in order for these values to resignate home within us. As
With the whole nation included in our wartime endeavors more people would be apt to care about what is going on overseas and what our military men are being put up to and the situations they endure.

State of the Union Essay “Our unique strengths as a nation -- our optimism and work ethic, our spirit of discovery, our diversity, our commitment to rule of law -- these things give us everything we need to ensure prosperity and security for generations to come.”, stated President Barack Obama in his State of the Union speech of 2016. In his speech he addressed many important topics.
