He knew that if the Confederates took this hill that the Union defense would have had a very big problem. The Confederates would have a large advantage over the Union. He conferred with General Sickles and Sickles thought it best to defend the hill, then push forward (Dupuy,
Jünger’s tone gradually changed throughout his war years, perhaps because death and destruction constantly surrounded him. After the numerous close calls with death during the Battle of Somme, Jünger “noticed the experience had taken its toll on [his] nerves” (Jünger, p. 88). A year later, Lieutenant Brecht, who Jünger knew as a calm man, even in the face of total war, was killed. His death caused Jünger to think of his own mortality which was disheartening (Jünger, p. 197). The death of his friend Tebbe a few months later also caused Jünger great pain.
He was shortly awarded with the Military Cross for his valour under fire after which he then returned to Canada in 1919. To outline one of Frederick Banting’s best moments in his life taking place in military service, he was very dedicated to the task at hand and to helping those in the war. He showed his support and valor during the hardships of the war and for that calling him great would be an
The British had won the hill and the battle, but they did have many soldiers and officers die, unlike the Americans. This gave the Americans courage knowing that they could stand up to the British. Many more colonists joined the army after the battle and the revolution continued to
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself”(Campbell). According to the article, “Why Remember," it attests that we must reminisce on the sacrifices of Canadian soldiers, who have died for their families and country to ensure that liberty is protected. The article declares that these soldiers considered their actions to be meaningful, and we should live up to that dream. Lastly, the article believes that by remembering those soldiers, we can acknowledge the difficulties and terrors they faced in order for peace to remain in Canada (Veterans Affairs Canada). In order to promote peace, we must first fathom that we must remember, reflect and most importantly learn from history.
Paine then challenges the men’s bravery and patriotism to their country by stating the line “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country.” This statement successfully peaks the men 's interest in the passage, and takes a jab at the readers manliness and willingness to protect his own country in time of need. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.” This line, similar to the first line, is stating that this evil that was the British government is not going to be an easy opponent to defeat. This also puts the readers in a position of readying themselves, similar
He believes that the revolution will not be easy, but that it will be worth it in the end. Paine describes this when saying, “the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” (98). Paine says that men will be tested and some may not finish the battle. He also persuades the soldiers to fight in the battle by telling them
Also the Declaration of Independence caused the war by angering the British in 1776. I strongly agreed with this document that gave us freedom but the British did not sadly. So I joined Washington to fight the war. I remember when we had victories at the early wars like at Princeton and Trenton which gave me as well as other soldiers hope for winning more battles. The first reason I will re-enlist is the hope that Thomas Paine gave all of us.
By the end of the war, the loyalty that the Colonies had to England was gone. Before the war the Colonist would 've done anything for Britain and would fight till the death for them. This could be seen for the many wars that the Colonist aid England in even though they didn’t why they were fighting. In Document C, George Washington wrote a letter to Robert Orme showing his dying love to be in service for General Braddock and the British empire quoting, “ believing a more favourable opportunity cannot offer, than to serve under a Gentleman of General Braddock’s abilities and experience”. Serving for British could have one of the most honorable thing that the Colonist could have done.
