There were many great American figures of past and present day. However, the greatest American president in history is George Washington because of the following reasons: he served as a loyal soldier, as the first president, and as a wise political leader and pioneer after American Independence. Around mid-18th century, the thirteen colonies of North America declared independence from the oppressive monarch and his Parliament. They had decided to declare independence from Britain after the Age of Enlightenment, which was an age where people lived out their lives with reasoning and scientific evidence and doubted the idea of theocracy. Inevitably, the war against Britain followed, commonly known as the American Revolutionary War, and George Washington loyally served, first as a soldier, the Continental Army as its leader.
There were two Revolutions that are connected, The French Revolution and the American Revolution. The American Revolution came first, and the French Revolution was inspired by the American Revolution. George Washington was one of the main leaders in the American revolution. He led the colonies and future United States to a victory over the British government. The leader of the French Revolution was Napoleon Bonaparte.
Introduction George Washington was many things, from the first Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army to the first President of the United States of America. He was a Founding Fathers of our nation and considered the Father of American Intelligence. Throughout his military career, he had many successes and an equal number of defeats. One such defeat almost cost him the Revolutionary War while still in its infancy, the Battle of Long Island. This paper will analyze the battle and the misuse of intelligence assets using the four-step method: define the subject, review the setting, describe the action, and assess the significance by offering an alternate outcome.
Also, Revere warned everyone throughout the countryside that the British are coming to steal their resources. During the war, Paul Revere built a gunpowder mill and led a Militia army.

George Washington demonstrated Remarkable leadership in a long and difficult war. Being the commander of the continental army he faced many challenges that some people would not be able to overcome. One reason the American army started to act more like an army rather than a bunch of farmers and workers was because of George Washington. He had a huge impact on the war and the starting of the revolution, Its safe to say he had a big impression on the way everything turned out. Not only did he have a huge impact on the war side of the revolution he also had an impact on the political side.

RESEARCH ASSIGNMENT FOR MILITARY HISTORY 114: THE AMERICAN MILITARY SYSTEM (UNION DURING THE CIVIL WAR) Appendix A: Bibliography INTRODUCTION 1. One could define the term Military System as “an assemblage or combination of things that belongs or relates to the establishment of a nation and here armed forces”. 2. The development and integration of the Military System, by Abraham Lincoln, played a major role in winning the war for the Union during the Civil War.
Throughout much of the United States history, our country has found itself in some sort of conflict with another country, as is the nature of civilization. In most of these wars, some sort of leader or general rises to prominence to aid in the effort. Often times these leaders are considered for president after the wars are finished. In this paper, I would like to compare two presidents who got their fame on their battlefield and carried the success into the white house. The two presidents I will be writing about are Ulysses S Grant and Dwight Eisenhower.
During the Vietnam War, President Eisenhower placed CIA operatives and many different military advisers into Vietnam. President John F. Kennedy was the one to finally make the decision to send American soldiers over to Vietnam so that we could fight. President Lyndon Johnson announced and ordered the very first authentic combat by American troops, and finally, President Richard Nixon was the one who ended the war all together. Unfortunately for America, despite all the decades of resolve, whopping amounts of money, over 60,000 American lives and injuries, the United States had still ultimately failed to achieve all of its
A prime example of Walter Conkrite 's work for society is seen from his conclusional reporting on the Vietnam War. Like many others of his generation, he was informed by the government that the war in Vietnam was met with numerous victories and achievements. Optimistically, he continued to believe in the power of America to win the war. Therefore, after venturing to Vietnam to see the situation for himself, he was slightly unnerved by the chaos he saw around him, "unready" for another abnormal war that had no justification. More and more causes of discontent like the unreasonable destruction of natural scenery for military use, the talk of "body count" as measurement for winning the war, and the surprisingly effective Tet Offensive started
The Vietnam War proved to be the longest war in both Australian and American history in the 20th century but presented a lot of debate as well as mixed opinions about Australia’s actions and involvement. The USA, who lead the operation and campaign, purely took part in the War to prevent the spread of communism globally, and also to prevent the domino effect from occurring in neighbouring countries in Asia. Furthermore, the Viet Cong were fighting the North Vietnamese government to improve Vietnam, which was under communist rule. However the alliance with America that Australia had, through SEATO and also ANZUS treaties, played a major factor and also a trigger for our involvement. Australia feared communism, and was definitely a key threat which ultimately forced us to contribute to the Vietnam War.
American being a capitalist national and Russia being a communist nation, these two highly contrasting ideologies resulted in major aggression between the two countries resulting in a series of proxy wars across the world including Korea and Vietnam in a attempt to eradicate each other. Communism ideas began to become more prevalent in China during the 1950’s. China then began to support smaller countries in Indochina to become communist nations such as Korea and Vietnam; this was an early example of Australia using military action in order to defeat communism in the Asia pacific. The domino theory was a thesis put forward by America stating that if South Vietnam were to fall to communism, because of its geographical position the entire region would eventually convert to communism therefore communism had to be eliminated in South Vietnam to prevent the spread of communism in the Asia Pacific. Australia due to its allegiance with Europe became weaker overall after the war as Europe would be unable to support Australia in case of a mainland invasion as they needed to rebuild from the effects of war, this left Australia in search for a new powerful ally.
