We saw Lincoln as a savvy strategist, a man of great depth who could out-think and out-maneuver his opponents in a way that made him self-assured in his own ability to secure the ends he desired. Lincoln held strong moral convictions about right and wrong, and was not shy about pursuing them. To Lincoln, the end result was everything, and he was willing to achieve his outcome through almost any means. In our opinion, this pursuit of ends by any means was Lincoln’s most distinctive guiding philosophy. It made him a force, but someone who could only be trusted when his goals aligned with yours.
Being the president of the United States comes with the responsibility of making tough decisions that aren’t always perceived as the best, especially when it involves the war. In 1945, President Harry Truman had to make a difficult decision that ultimately gave americans a leg up in the war. President Harry Truman’s decision to use the atomic bomb on Japan in WWII is surrounded by much controversy but holds many positive advantages that helped end the war. Presidents Harry Truman’s decision to use the atomic bomb posed nearly no significant dilemmas overall.
In the 1790s, there were two men who had different beliefs regarding how the United States should function. The two men were Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson was the leader of the Republican party and Hamilton was the leader of the Federalist party. The political parties were created by Hamilton and Jefferson based on their differences in opinion on how the country should run. For example, Jefferson believed that the government should be self-governed and all of the power should go to the individual states.
The sudden death of Franklin Roosevelt left Harry S. Truman in a tough situation with the war going on, Truman had to make decisions that would help end World War 2 as quickly as possible. Harry Truman became the president of the United States of America on April 12, 1945, after the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He came into the presidency of a country that was in the middle of a world war against Germany, other European countries, and Japan. With no experience with foreign policy, he was in charge of ending the war as quickly as possible. The war with Germany was nearly over when he became president.
In 1901, after the assassination of William McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt became the United State’s youngest president and he viewed his presidency as a way to “increase the influence and prestige of the United States on the world stage and make the country a global power” (Milkis 1). His accomplishments were made using American influence rather than force. Previously, presidents had used the American armies to ensure that America was seen as a capable leader. Roosevelt thought ahead and saw that helping other countries emblematically during times of war would benefit the United States. He realized that the US did not have to necessarily place boots on the soil in order to make advances whereas his predecessors did not.
“Never before have I had so little time to do so much” were the great words of 32nd president, Franklin Delano Roosevelt who was me! I had the nickname FDR and it is also true that I did so much in so little time. I led the country through the last six years of the Great Depression as well as the furious World War II. I then died on my fourth term because of a cerebral hemorrhage. I was a great president, don’t you agree?
The Progressive Era and The New Deal Liberalism Era were two very important eras in American History. Progressives contended that old ways of governing and doing business did not address modern conditions. Theodore Roosevelt believed that corporations were good for America, but he also believed that corporate behavior must be watched to ensure that corporate greed did not get out of hand. Then we have the New Deal Liberalism where President Franklin Delano Roosevelt referred broadly to providing a “new deal” and bringing to the White House “persistent experimentation.” New Deal Liberalism would mainly provide relief, put millions of people to work, raise prices for farmers, extend conservation projects, revitalize America’s financial system,
On January 11th, 1944, Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR) gave the annual State of the Union Address, (SotU) which was professional and insightful, yet flawed. As most things go, FDR’s SotU Address was presented with faulty arguments; however convincing the arguments may have been. These are called fallacies. In a fallacy, you try to persuade a person to do something by giving an argument of an ethical, emotional, and/or logical nature with false evidence.
The letter of Teddy Roosevelt to the next Secretary of State, Sen. Knox was about his thoughts and impressions of the future world scene concerning Europe, Central America, Cuba and Venezuela. The United States was in and out of the Caribbean and Central America putting down many rebellions and skirmishes, Teddy Roosevelt felt these would continue. Mr. Roosevelt did not see a possible conflict in the near future with Germany because of the better understanding between the two countries. One thing I learned from the letter was Mr. Roosevelt 's wise understanding of the cultural nature of the Japanese nation. The Japanese maintained a powerful military with a conceded attitude based on their recent victory over the formidable Russian
