George Washington. Abraham Lincoln. Martin Luther King Jr. When you hear these names, what do you think of? To many people, all of these men are heroes and have helped our beloved country become what it is today; Benedict Arnold should be right up there with them.
Thank you Veterans Veterans do a lot for us by defending our country and our home. We thank them by having a full day dedicated to our veterans. Three reasons that I think veterans should be thanked for are; going out to defend our country when no ones else does, I also want to thank you for demonstrating a great work ethic and doing all of this work for people you don’t even know. The first thing I want to thank you for was for defending our country.
Veterans truly are heroes, need to be heard, and we need to help them. First of all, veterans are heroes. Everybody knows that veterans risk their life every time they strap on their helmet, but how many people really know what that implies. This means they risk never seeing their best friend again,they risk never seeing their kids, wife, mom, dad, and any other any family member again. They do all this for the safety of America and the well being of all Americans.
While reading the book I noticed that those two main key points pop up on almost every page of the book. In my finding I also noticed that Gerstle base national identity off of citizenship. In “American Crucible” Gerstle argues that civic nationalism and racial identity shaped the American history, “How both ideals influenced critical immigration and war mobilization policies” and how they “shaped social reform movements”(pg.5). Both ideas are very complex in their own right. Racial nationalism are set to believe that people are held together by common skin color and blood type for the government of self.

Truth continued to help the Abolitionist Movement in the time after this meeting. Shortly after she met Abraham Lincoln, Truth was appointed Counselor to Ex-Slaves in Virginia.
I will still be scared of turning out like my mother. I'll still fear that one day I will be the spitting imagine of who she is, inside and out. She left her children for something that took over her life; left a great man for someone that made her hate herself, and chose to continue to live that way despite how many times her children have begged her to change. I'll still fear turning out like my father, his past abusive relationships with my mother and the mother of his other three children, and the past abusive realtionship with him and myself. Maybe I'll fear the fact that they both have their blood running through my veins and I have watched the struggle and the pain, and in twenty years I don't want to live the same way.

She, and other feminists such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, began to realize that there were numerous similarities between slaves and women. Both were fighting to get away from the male-dominated culture and beliefs. In 1848, these women began a convention in Seneca Falls, regarding women’s rights(Brinkley 330). They believed that women should be able to vote, basing their argument on the clause “all men and women are created equal”.
I’ve noticed that being an African American woman places me below the totem pole automatically, placing two strikes again me. However, as a black woman attending a Historically Black College/University, in my heart, I strive to seek academic excellence and create a lasting impression on the world…starting with the community around me.
