World War II was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, in which it encompassed the major nations in the world, including the United States of America. The aftermath of the war, in which the United States and its allied powers emerged victorious, should have marked a period of political tranquility. However this supposition proved incorrect, as the American ethos was ravaged by a state of political and military tension between the United States and the Soviet Union. More than a military conflict, the Cold War was an ideological war in which democracy and communism clashed. The Cold War fears of the American people, reflected in the mass hysteria behind the Red Scare and McCarthyism, was entrenched in the
Jimmy Carter was the 39th president of the United States. Jimmy grew up on a small family farm and later became president in 1976.

Carter had a very traditional childhood, he did some major positive thing while he was president, but he also made some mistakes, and he will always be remembered as a president whose mistakes outweighed his triumphs.
President Dwight Eisenhower is probably one of the least understood and the most criticized American president. Eisenhower critics changed their negative view of his presidency years later when they understood Eisenhower’s principles and what he stood for. President Eisenhower’s military and political career emerges as critics and historians continued to evaluate his presidency. The major theme is the criticism of Eisenhower’s presidency and the revision of that criticism. These criticisms were base on foreign policy issues, social welfare legislation, and Eisenhower’s principles and philosophy that help him to remain neutral. The foreign affair was probably President Eisenhower’s administration most important goal. Eisenhower presidency coincided with Cold War era that saw heightened aggression from the Soviet Union and China. Eisenhower used his foreign policy to contain the communist powers such as Soviet Union, Cuba, and China that had managed to split the world into two spheres- Capitalists and Communist. Eisenhower staffed the State Department and foreign embassies with new men that he believed would enhance the foreign policy. He implemented the social welfare legislation that the Democratic governments initiated in 1930’s and

Undoubtedly, The President is the furthermost known person in a country due to the position he occupies and many times his actual power has been questioned. Two distinct perspectives arose to describe the president’s power as persuasion and unilateral power.
Throughout the course of history, important events litter the ground as such common knowledge that the true power of such events becomes masked. So many years deemed crucial to the development of mankind have been written about to the point of deterioration of the stature of the events contained within said years. The unsung heroes, however, are brushed aside as a moot point in the history of the world. 1949 carries one such tune, with events that not only altered history at that point in time, but continue to impact the world today.
John F. Kennedy won the 1960 US presidency election by a small margin as the youngest and the only Roman Catholic president in history. In the peak of the cold war, Kennedy delivered the most influential inaugural address of all time, in which he inspires and unites people listening, watching or reading his speech around the world.

In 1961, the United States of America was struggling to fight communism internationally and protect its people from negative outside forces. Along with these complications, there were struggles with racial and social inequalities. The country was on the brink of its breaking point, needing a resilient and reassuring leader; President John F.

Kennedy applied interpersonal diction and the meticulous use of aphorisms to unceasingly inspire the citizens of America to unite and serve their country, and the world,

One person is to be chosen every year to be congratulated on their acts of political courage. President Lyndon B Johnson’s chance has now arrived. “The true democracy, living growing and inspiring, puts its faith in the people - faith that the people will not simply elect men who will represent their views ably and faithfully, but will also elect men who will exercise their conscientious judgement - faith that the people will not condemn those whose devotion to principle leads them to unpopular courses, but will reward courage, respect honor, and ultimately recognize right”(Kennedy).
