One final phrase with paramount significance to Oliver Holmes poem “Old Ironsides” is “eagle of the sea”. An eagle is a very large dominant bird of prey that is known to gracefully soar high up in the blue sky. Eagles are very dominant and commanding creatures that are symbols of patriotism. Someone who possesses patriotism is known to persevere and overcome all conflicts in their way. We have already come to the conclusion that this poem is about a ship.
The 30-foot by 42-foot flag made its inspiring appearance as it flew over Fort McHenry during the Battle of Baltimore (Edwin); it was still flying over the fort when the fighting ceased, damaged by bullets and shells (Georgiady and Romano 17). The flag’s presence above the fort on the morning of September 14 signaled an unexpected American victory against an empire (Poole), resulting in a turning point in the war (The Star-Spangled Banner Project). The flag inspired the “Star-Spangled Banner” because the flag was a symbol of America, and after the battle, a symbol of its victory, being memorialized in the poem (Poole). The inspiration of one battle, one man, and one flag made the “Star-Spangled Banner” a powerful
Charlemagne was known to be successful in warfare Einhard said, “Such are the wars, most skillfully planned and successfully fought, which this most powerful king waged during the forty-seven years of his reign.” This shows not only his success in warfare, but also his diligence and fortitude to deal with wars throughout his kingship. On the contrary, Alfred handled warfare differently. He dealt with a new kind of warfare, Vikings, with their naval forces were constantly trying to loot and pillage. Although he fought back multiple times the Vikings were a constant challenge for Alfred. For instance in 881 “A sea battle was joined: there was savage fighting everywhere.” The Vikings were killed and all their ships were captured on the way home Vikings from East Anglia attacked and ultimately had victory over Alfred’s army.

By 51 BCE Caesar had conquered 800 cities and subdued 300 tribes (Bishnoi.) By the end of Caesar’s leadership he had conquered a lot of people and places, which meant all that land belonged to the Roman Empire. All in all, Caesar may have been egotistical, but he was truly the greatest military leader in European history due to his astounding military IQ, the way he cared for and fought with his men, and how he expanded the Roman Empire to its great lengths that we know today. His success gained the Roman Empire its wealth, provided a stable economy so there could be specialization, which allowed them to invent things such as roads, highways, plumbing and sewage, concrete, and even the calender. Julius Caesar’s legacy lives on through these innovations that are used in everyday life to this

The introduction of this technology has further enabled to Marine Corps to deploy from a Navy vessel, such as a LHD, with great efficiency (The US Navy). The AAV-7 brought both the capabilities of a small landing boat, such as the Higgins boat, and an armored tracked vehicle with weapon systems that could be easily attached. Along with this, the AAV-7 has the ability to carry more than 5 tons of gear and up to 24 Marines (three of which are the crew) on board. Probably the biggest benefit the AAV-7 has brought is it’s enhancement of armor. The AAV-7 is covered entirely with a heavy aluminum haul, which provides Marines with the protection they need to get closer to their objective.
The USS Antietam 's primary mission is to operate with carrier battle group five and actions of the ship affect the fleet and the safety and security of the mother carrier.

Many pilots said later that the sea was packed so full of ships that it almost looked as if you could walk to France.
