From the Kamakura Period of the late twelfth century to the Meiji Restoration in the nineteenth century, the samurai have held prominent positions as noble warriors in Japanese society. They have come to be famous in modern, Western pop culture as the fierce, stoic guards of feudal Japan, but their practices and rituals extended beyond wielding katanas and donning impressive armor. Samurai practices were rich and complex, with strict codes, ritual suicide, and a history of influencing culture and politics (“Samurai”). Samurai code was influenced by traditional Japanese culture, Zen Buddhism, and Confucianism. Bushido, or “Way of the Warrior,” was the code of conduct the samurai class were expected to uphold.
intentions were to grab the characters of the key figures from that time period. So, going off of what the director says about the movie just proves the historical inaccuracy of the movie. Ever since the days of the Samurai there has been this sense of honor and virtue that you correlate with the Japanese people. No matter what they do it constantly sticks with them. Professor Bolitho says, “It’s an idealized image that’s been pushed onto the entire Japanese people.
“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.” - President Ronald Reagan, 1983. I think this quote, by Ronald Reagan, not only speaks for marines but for all veterans who have served their people and made sacrifices to protect the rights of those people.

He left being an end with an inspiring future to help our country win one of the most savage battles in U.S. history, Iwo Jima. In this battle in Japan, Jack Lummus led his troops like a great leader. He sacrificed his life for his family, his friends, and his country. Jack Lummus was such a great, courageous person because he was an astounding athlete, had an excellent military career, and died fighting for his country. Besides being a great military hero, Jack Lummus was an outstanding athlete.
The reasoning behind General DeWitt for this command was because the Japanese race was an “enemy” (p.346). However, with so much discrimination against all Asian Americans, they still persevered and it is inspiring to see how individuals such as the Chinese Americans still motivated their children to gain an education. This strength and bravery can also be seen in literary works such as Edith Maud Eaton’s, “In the Land of the Free”, and in Chien-Chi Chang’s artistic work such as his portfolio, “USA. 1990s. New York’s Chinatown”. To begin with, in Eaton’s, “In the Land of the Free”, she illustrates the story of a husband and wife and their struggles and fight to gain back their child.
Roosevelt’s use of both pathetical and logical statements was extremely effective is driving America to declare war on the Japanese Empire. The ethos of Roosevelt is quite evident. As being president of the United States for four straight elections, he was trusted by the people and well loved so his title proves his credibility and establishes his ethos for him. In addition to the ethos
His "service to the New American Union lasted over 50 years." (Article 3 Paragraph 2) 50 years he demonstrated loyalty to this country including his terms in office.

General MacArthur said, “The American man-of-arms [...] one of the world’s noblest figures.” (MacArthur). Now, as an American, you might think that the Japanese Kamikaze were being selfish by taking their own life, but, in the eyes of the Kamikaze soldiers, they were giving their lives for their country in war, which American’s do every day and consider it honorable, as General MacArthur has said. In everyone there is a desire to be honorable, country and culture aside.
To date, I have only seen a few movies with established female characters , and the Coen brothers did an extraordinary job with the portrayal of the movie from Mattie Ross’ point of view. However I was perplexed by the fact that an high profile actor, such as Matt Damon took a secondary role in this movie. He did a very good job in the portrayal of his role. It was stunning to me that public executions were still popular to be viewed as late as the
Indians were seen as a part of the citizen ship of the country as they were given the opportunity to enjoy the rights of all Americans. One such right was the ability to join the armed forces to defend the country in World War Two which gave the Native American a sense of belonging. Furthermore the Federal government through congress in 1946 acknowledged the fact that they had mistreated Native Americans and offered compensation to the tune of 800 million dollars which did more harm than good as it caused unwanted internal conflicts within tribes. Another development to improve life for Native Americans and its relationship with the government was the reintroduction of self governance which aimed to preserve the cultural predilection of Native Americans to tribal governance in which they are able to make and adhere to their own rules and
