During the french revolution, Napoleon was a supporter, from afar, and let that influence his policies during his reign as Emperor. However, he also let the power go to his head and became the absolutism ruler that the revolution had fought against. But when comparing his rule to that of the the monarchy and the national assembly, it still stands out as the best of the three for his better
Beating Hitler’s notion was a good thing because everyone was hoping for the best well obviously for their notion but when Jesse Owens won, their was weight lifted off their shoulders because if Hitler’s notion win he would hold it against all of these innocent people that don’t deserve to be treated the way Hitler treats Jewish. Jesse Owens left a legacy a legacy that will be known as not just a miracle, but it was a legacy that was heard around the WORLD! “ Despite segregation and a social hierarchy that was an impasse to both black opportunity and achievement, Owens created a lasting legacy that drastically impacted race relations.”(dc.etsu.edu). Jesse Owens was the fastest runner in the world for approximately 30 years, getting to shake Hitler’s hand was disapproving because Hitler was not quite thrilled when Jesse Owens won but that didn’t bother Jesse Owens, in fact he felt he didn’t need approval from the guy who tries killing every
The period between the end of the Civil War and the Great Depression had many notable achievements such as western expansion and the Reconstruction Era. However it was also a time period in which many minority groups were fairly disappointed in the American government. The Reconstruction Amendments had many holes not making it effective enough, and with more expansion to the West came more extreme racism towards Native Americans. It is clear that there were attempts to change America for all the people’s freedom, but there are still many flaws those changes possess. Because of that, I find myself in the middle of the debate about who benefited most from this time period.
During the 1900s, many people took pride in their countries and wanted to prove the world how great their country is. And to do that, they would have to declare and win a war against their rivals. It led to the war for the reason that the overconfidence fueled their strength in militarism. This is probably why other countries such as Portugal and Italy joined the war- simply because of their confidence. There were downsides to it- it made the war longer then everyone thought it would be as there were so many countries fighting, hence being called World War 1.
Nationalism is a strong force of patriotism, and a strong supporter of political independence for one’s country. Nationalism is also one of the main causes that led to the crack of World War 1, since all the powers had a nationalistic pride. Many nations believed that nationalism helps the nation to gain the support for war, in addition to competing with other countries on which nation is the better, stronger and most powerful. The greatest nationalist movement was the Slavic group in the Balkans. The Balkans was a very unstable area, and it was also known as the “sick man of Europe”.
Throughout ww2 propaganda seemed to be the main thing that got into everybody 's head. It changed the way that they thought about other countries and the way that they thought about their own country. Hitler did a great job at using propaganda to control the minds of his country, but he didnt use it for good. It wasn 't just in Germany that propaganda was used. It was used it just about every country but mainly in Britain, France and America.
Many people say that World War I was one of the bloodiest conflicts that the world had ever seen. There are many reasons why people think this and one of them is due to the innovations in military during the late 1800´s. The world powers had expected a short war, but that was not the case. The immediate cause of World War I was the assassination of archduke of Austria-Hungary, Franz Ferdinand. But this was not the only cause of the First World War.
The Unpreventable Great War World War I was one of the most devastating and destructive events that occurred during history. It was inevitable to happen due to three main factors including, militarism, nationalism, and alliances between certain countries. However, there are other people who believe that World War I was not inevitable and could have been prevented through certain measures. This source describes that World War I could have been prevented if there were more stable and successful negotiations between countries. However, due to the lack of peaceful negotiations between certain countries, many conflicts arose because of desires to expand military and navels.
The differences between the North and the South in the United States were far greater than any geographical distance might infer. Political ideas about freedom and who should be a recipient of it were one defining difference. Economically the North was booming and the South was stalling, and social norms and religious ideas were also on opposite ends of the spectrum. These differences were all factors that turned the South and the North against each other and ultimately led to the Civil War. Politically speaking slavery had become a divisive topic among Northerners and Southerners.
In the panoramic picture of the 20th century, it is difficult to opine a certain factor as the most significant. The true interpretation of the word ‘’significance’’ lies in ‘’meaningfulness’’ , which is far beyond the extent of proportion or popularity. Different people have myriad perceptions of the greatest influence, the sheerest savagery or the brightest scene in a panorama fraught with bloody wars and high mortality rate but also depicts the density of scientific breakthroughs. However, as a global citizen, I believe those events have its root in the human rights problems. Mankind discriminate other human races, whereby our previous generations declare war against each other.
