Our country has had quite a few Presidents in its day and with that come the good and the bad. Now, not all Presidents are either purely good or bad. There are some that mostly bad with a bit of good while others can be mostly good with a hint of bad. Now, no man is perfect by any means but there are a few Presidents that have done fantastic while in office and that have been a purely beneficial factor for our country.
Over hundreds of years America has had many presidents, some able to complete the tasks at hand, but many were not worthy of leading this nation. President Abraham Lincoln was one of the few who led the United States of America with great strength and courage. Abraham Lincoln was the best U.S. president because he had a great impact on ending slavery and he was one of the greatest natural strategists and leaders of all time. Abraham Lincoln is considered to be America 's wisest president.
Their have been many presidents throughout the years; some good, some not as good. Each and every one of them have their pros and cons. All though Teddy Roosevelt had many struggles to face him before coming president, I believe that Teddy Roosevelt was the best president. Not only was he smart, he was athletic, and a dedicated conservationist.
William Henry Harrison was the ninth president to serve in office. He was also the oldest president elected at the time and the first to die in office as well. Harrison was born into a well-connected family, and having his father and brother both to serve an important role in Congress, Harrison was bound to be a part of the “planter aristocracy” (American). Surprisingly, William originally went to college studying classics and medicines. William changed career paths and took up the military services before taking a role in the government (Bio). For the short time William Henry Harrison did serve in office, and the time leading up to his presidential run, Harrison made a large impact on the U.S. due to the many things he did such as his upbringing, his, military experience, presidential intentions and the lasting legacy he left behind after his untimely death.
Charles Cotesworth Pinckney was born to planters, Eliza Lucas Pinckney and Charles Pinckney on February 25, 1746. He grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, with two brothers and one sister. (Wikipedia). His mother, Eliza, was a wealthy and brilliant agriculturist who introduced a new cash crop--indigo. His father, Charles, was a successful politician. As for his siblings, his brother Thomas grew up to be a veteran of the American Revolution, his brother George died soon after birth and little is known about his sister Harriott.
James. M Pherson really knows his facts about president Abraham Lincoln. He focused more on Lincoln’s efforts to win the war instead of the other political things he accomplished during his presidency. Lincoln was a great commander-in-chief because he attempted to run the war and also maintain political stability at the same time. This was impressive because although he had no military experience, he was persistent in provoking his commanders to stay active and to always strive for victory. He wanted generals that would attack and destroy the Confederate army, and at the same time be able to work together as a team. Lincoln never strayed from his duties as president, even under extreme international, military, and political pressure.
As Dave Attell once said, “You know, men and women are a lot alike in certain situations. Like when they’re both on fire-they’re exactly alike.” Attell’s quote ties in perfectly with Fahrenheit 451 regarding the novel’s futuristic society. The government’s goal is to make everyone equal and create overall happiness by making books illegal and disposing of all the remaining books through the rise of fire. The author of Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury, was an American creator that wrote many pieces of work including short stories, novels, plays and more in the genres of fantasy, science fiction, and horror (Weiner 79). Bradbury was a master of creating allusions and other literary devices, including the novel’s title itself throughout his writing,
In the course of American history, many presidents have come and gone. Even some of our Founding Fathers, such as George Washington, became president. In Washington 's case, he was the first president and the one to pave the way for many U.S. presidents to come. They are remembered in text-books, journals, bibliographies, magazines, websites, and much more. Some of their faces are even plastered on our money. The one dollar bill? George Washington. The five dollar bill? Abraham Lincoln. The twenty dollar bill? Andrew Jackson. Now, Andrew Jackson is the center of much argument. Many argue that he was a great president; others disagree. There is even a movement to remove his image from the twenty dollar bill, which has a figure with a likeness to him. And he earned the right, as others have before and after him, to have his face on a form of our currency. Why is it a bad idea to remove a U.S.
Harry Truman accomplished many things in his life time and was one of the best presidents to ever be in office. Many of his accomplishments came from what he did in his early childhood years and the time he put in when no one knew about him. He joined WWI and that shows he would be able to fight for his country and not back down. He also made a huge adjustment from County judge to Vice President showing he knows a lot about politics and is ready to take his career further (“The History of Harry truman”).
Over a period of 240 years there has been 44 presidents and the U.S has had both good times and bad times and that all depended on who was running the country and what choices they made when it came to crisis and many other difficulties. John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Quincy Massachusetts. He studied at Harvard and received his Undergraduate and Master 's degrees. After receiving his degrees he became a faithful lawyer and was chosen to help draft the Declaration of Independence in the year of 1774 while also serving on the first Continental Congress. In the year 1797 he was elected as President and served until the year 1801 and is one of the United States Founding Fathers. John Adams was an amazing president because he showed perseverance at all times during his candidacy, and always put on a brave face no matter what the circumstances were, and did what was right no matter what!
At a young age, Franklin was a determined. He would become his brother’s apprentice in his printing press company. This would inspire him to establish his own printing press which would be well known throughout all the colonies. He was then given the rank of postmaster, which made him the head of all the post offices in the colonies. He was very interested in pursuing science and enjoyed inventing; this curiosity of science would lead him to be the first to discover electricity. He also helped invent many useful things that would help the colonies. While in Philadelphia, he opposed British taxation in the colonies. In the second continental congress he would declare independence from Britain’s rule over the colonies. He would then at the end of the revolutionary war draft the treaty of Paris, which ended the war and dissolved the relations between the America and Britain. Making America at last a free and independent nation. That is why I think Benjamin Franklin should be in the US Hall of Fame because without him, this country would be what it is
Thomas Jefferson was the third president of the United States. Jefferson was one of the most important president during that time period. Jefferson’s home state was Virginia and was a Democratic Republican. He had many accomplishments and was also the author of the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson went through some hard and cruel times during his presidency. He was one of the better presidents in my opinion through his accomplishments.
Andrew Jackson, being a tyrant, abused his power in his time of presidency. He was the 7th president, but before Jackson’s presidency, he had no political experience. One of the only things that really qualified him was the hardships he went through when he was younger. His father had died while Jackson was young and Jackson received the reputation as a “self-made man”, or an independent man. This title gave him a boost on reasons of why he should become president. Other than that, Jackson should not have been elected president, for he made many inexpert and wrong decisions such as the Indian Removal. Andrew Jackson was considered a tyrant because of his removal of the Native Americans, overuse of vetoing, and the general fact that he just
“We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unbailable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The signers of the Declaration of Independence risked their lives when they wrote their
Many of you are taught all about the Founding Fathers and how America got it’s Independence. I’m positive you’ve all heard about the famous Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin, and about all his contributions to history. He has contributed to the draft of the Declaration of Independence, but that wasn’t the only important contribution he made. He bought a famous paper, the Pennsylvania Gazette, proved the electrical nature of lighting with a kite, and many other things were done by Benjamin. You were probably not told too much about Franklin’s other accomplishments. In order to understand how important this man was, I’ll be talking about his life, work, and accomplishments.
