He is respected for his tactics in selecting and supervising his army generals, commanding and preserving the army, appropriate coordination with state governors and Congress. Further, he rendered great appropriate attention to logistics, supplies and training. However, Washington was usually outdone by the British in war, due to their large number of army officers. After winning in 1783, he resigned as the commander-in-chief instead of taking up more power. This was aimed at showing his disapproval of dictatorships and portray his support for American republicanism.
He advises the American government to not be indifferent to victims of injustices, he also hopes that people in the twenty first century will be indifferent. The entire basis of this speech was to evoke emotions in the audience to effect change, so Wiesel uses a lot of pathos to support his ideas.

Alexander Hamilton was one of the United States founding fathers, and was the right hand man to George Washington. Alexander Hamilton was the United States first Secretary of the Treasury and the founder of the Federalist party. Hamilton was born in the West Indies, and was an orphan as a child.

In the movie Crimson Tide, we look to the question ethical decisions, and what someone would do when thrown into a situation that made them question themselves, and who they serve for. In this example, when serving in the United States Military, once a solider is given orders, that solider must follow the orders out and not to question them. The trust between the solider and the higher command giving orders is almost based on blind faith. The solider relies on the higher commands decision of protecting democracy, even if someone, or a lot of people are killed.

Civil disobedience serves the purpose of giving the people a say. For example, Thoreau stated, “Let every man make known what kind of government would command his respect, and that will be one step toward attaining it“ (Civil
