Mythologies of creation (stories that exaggerate history to inspire national pride) are a trademark of nation-building, and it follows that something as central to the construction of a nation as the military would subscribe to the general view of the American public that our history is something to take pride in. The line “minutemen from the start” conjures images of brave patriots, rather than the disjointed and poorly trained militias of the American Revolution (at least in the beginning), which is obviously not the model for the modern U.S. Army. Nonetheless, Americans are proud of the Revolutionary War (and the other historical events mentioned in The Army Song), and by using imagery from that time period The Army Song draws parallels between the Army then and the Army now, although they are not the same by any means.

This is saying that like the confederate army, if they do not accept all races than they will be destroyed and will not achieve anything during the season. This speaks to the boys as the camera zooms to show their faces and that they are determined. They are determined to win, and are realizing that winning is more important than any prejudice they may have. This shows that the run to Gettysburg is a turning point, as they are beginning to overcome adversity.

A lot goes into the drafting of a college recruit: size, speed, intangibles, position, skill level and so on and so fourth. All of these important descriptions are calculated by a scout that works for an NFL organization to bring in the best young talent. The scout that a team will hire must be extremely talented in measuring the true potential a college player can have in the NFL which means that in order to have a team be considered a dynasty power house the scout you employ must be decorated and have a good track record in bringing in young talent. Hiring the right scout can be the difference in bringing in the next Tom Brady or messing up and drafting the next Ryan Leaf. Scouts are helped by the league because of the annual NFL scouting combine that is held each year to measure the capabilities of all the young recruits waiting to hear their name be called on draft day.

Resulting in the ending of WWII, production and sales of the television boomed, sending it straight into the homes of over 55 million Americans. As the economy prospered and prices dropped, the television became an even more pivotal part to almost every American life. As no other informational sources had ever proved as effective as the television, the results in American society were astounding.

Megan Morecraft Honors English II Mrs. Drake September 28, 2016 Equality’s True Motive Similar to The Giver by Lois Lowry, the society (in The Giver) is built upon rules that restrict the motives and individualities of the people that live within the community. For example, in The Giver the Elders of the society took away the ability to see color and feel love for one another by making the people resort to sameness. The protagonist, Jonas, was special like Equality in Anthem, because both of the characters figured out the problems of their society and rebelled.
