There are an endless amount of Presidents that could have been picked for this project that would have worked. However getting Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt I feel like I got the jackpot. Theodore is definitely my favorite president ever. Teddy had such an interesting life before being president and you could honestly write a paper just on his life before the White House. There are just some really cool facts about Theodore too that makes him so cool to learn about.
He talks about things from the “establishment, that which [he] first formed, called the Union Fire Company” (Franklin 82) which was a big deal back then to inventing a new fireplace. He writes about his good deeds because Franklin wants to show what good Americans can do. His son would probably not have care as much, but the general public would care how Americans can prosper. Part three is all about how he prospered, how he lived the ‘American Dream’ Some believe that Benjamin Franklin wrote about his good deeds because he wanted to show Great Britain how great America was. He wanted to show that they could grow and prosper, that the Americans do not need Great Britain to survive, that they are fine by themselves, maybe ever
"brought with him a reputation for literature, science and a happy talent of composition. Writings of his were handed about" (David Colbert, Page 79) This goes to show that Thomas Jefferson was thought very highly off that he was asked to write the Declaration of Independence. It shows he was a hero as his thoughts and writing were the starting point

In Poor Richards Almanac by Benjamin Franklin, there is a quote said “A true friend is the best possession”. This quote means if you have a true friend, then it is the best thing you have in your life. It means that because a true friend is who will be on your side and be with you when you need them no matters what. They will also never turn their back on you. For example, a true friend is who will encourage you when you are sad, make joke with you when you are happy, or listen to and help you on your problem.

King Arthur was a very powerful and intelligent king. From childhood, he learned many virtues and lessons, but he didn’t know that the lessons he was learning had to do with becoming a great leader. Ben Carson is very similar to king Arthur in many ways. Ben learned several things from childhood as well as from reading literature of the world around him which made him a great man later on in life. I will be talking about Ben Carson and why he is a great reincarnation of King Arthur.
Douglass describes it as being good for his “soul”, meaning that the raw emotions he felt were so positive that they helped nourish the very core of his being, the thing that makes him who he is. That teaching his fellow-slaves was the most delightful thing he has ever done, even after he escaped and became free, there was nothing that could compare. Douglass was given the satisfaction and glee of knowing that at least some of his fellow-slaves learned to read, that they too might have this feeling of exuberance in teaching their own friends. So, the spread of knowledge to his brethren was not only good for Douglass and them, it was also good for all who were in bondage, for, the more slaves that educate themselves, the more slaves there are that will have a chance at escaping from bondage. In my opinion though, the best evidence that learning to read was good for Douglass, is this book itself.
Birmingham Jail Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most iconic people of the 20th century. One of the reasons Martin Luther King Jr. was such a great and influential revolutionary in the context of civil rights is because of his mastery of ethos, pathos, and logos. Even today when mentioning King’s name in a conversation commands respect which shows just how great of a character he was, which demonstrates ethos. King also had the ability to connect emotionally with people of all different races and could easily be seen as an embodiment of the civil rights movement. Last, but not least King demonstrated logos through his words, he was a very well educated man who articulated himself well and could appeal to logic with ease.
Also, King has made a tremendous impact on the future of equality for all. Largely his most iconic speech was that of his 1963 speech, I Have a Dream (A&E Networks Television). Martin Luther king is widely recognized as one of the best speech givers of all time. Personally I picked him as a speaker to analyze as King appealed to the masses in a time period in which it was difficult, with a subject that was very hard to enforce. Also, one thing I really enjoy about King, as a speaker is his how relatable he is and how he practices what he preaches.
