During the war with France, Washington had developed an aversion to militiamen and an appreciation for British professionals. He had experienced nothing but problems with the Virginia militia It looked as if the colonies were embarked upon an unequal war. A population of two and half million (20 percent of whom were slaves), without an army, navy, or adequate financial resources, confronted a nation of eight million with a professional army, large navy, and vast wealth. Yet many colonists were confident and determined. They believed in the “natural courage’ of Americans and in God’s divine protection.

However, Poe is only able to accomplish this through his unique writer’s style, particularly his forceful imagery and meaningful syntax. However, Edgar Allan Poe’s famous morose outlook on the world did not come out of thin air. In fact, his life was riddled with disasters and mishappenings. Poe was born on January 19, 1809, to two professional actors who tragically died before he reached three. He excelled academically, and his life seemed to be going up, but was kicked out of his university due to some gambling debts, so he enlisted in the army.
The downsides of Jefferson came from his other beliefs- he claimed he believed in small government spending, but he bought the “Louisiana Purchase”- which was actually a great thing for the United States, yet it was a big government purchase. This caused some opposition, but in the end the purchase went through without any major rebellions. After serving two terms, Jefferson retired from politics and returned to his plantation at Monticello. Overall, Thomas Jefferson was another one of our greatest presidents that helped in the shaping of our
"Canada entered World War I as a colony and came out a nation..." (Bruce Huchison). Canada suffered many deaths and struggles from the first world war. They rushed in voluntarily, not expecting the bloodshed and the pain, in return experiencing death, pursued by a fall in economy, job loss, and a somewhat divided nation. But, despite of the clear negative effects of this war, Canada obtained its deserved autonomy. Before this conflict, Canada was nothing but a small British colony, living under the control of England, incapable to be brave and victorious.
The legacy of Canada’s contributions to the First World War was small but significant. Throughout Canada’s years as a powerful nation, they acquired the harsh realities of war and why it is important to separate themselves from Britain and start gaining independence and nationhood. The First World War was truly the period where many nations fought against one another leading to the immensity of destruction. Although at the end of the war, Canada was no longer seen merely as the colony of Britain , but a nation with full independence that had been shaped into a strong and powerful country it has become today. The Great War commences on July 1914, it is assumed tacitly that Canada would also join the war as Britain 's ally and subordinate.
King articulated this impetus for immigration in his speech where he mentioned “the danger that [lay] in a small population attempting to hold so great a heritage as [Canada]” (King in Walsh, 2003, p.794). The large landmass of Canada in combination with the “low birth rate,” (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.340) particularly during WWII, required a larger population to ensure its prosperous future (Green & Green, 2004, p.113; Satzewich & Liodakis, 2007, p.42). This was particularly true for less desirable rural Canada, where the government specifically recruited Dutch farmers to occupy this relatively uninhabited area (Kelly & Trebilcock, 2010, p.340). Furthermore, Canadian immigration policies were created to encourage individuals to immigrate “as settlers rather than…temporary residents” (Walsh, 2003, p.795). The focus on growing Canada’s population appeared to be successful; by 1960, Canada’s population had nearly doubled in size from the 1940s to 18.5 million people (Kelly, 2010,
