I think John Brown was a hero, because he tried to find ways to free slaves. Even though he killed people or got people killed in the process, he still was trying his best to help free slaves.

In this essay, I’ll be telling you my opinion on whether Andrew Carnegie was a hero or not. Andrew Carnegie, known as the king of steel, grew up poor, but became one of the richest and most successful business owner during the 1800s and 1900s.

As he started getting older he taught himself new things which would eventually lead him to making $1,500 a year at the age of 17.

Some of the reasons that I think that are because he found new land that people could move to and live on, was a good navigator and he knew exactly where to go, and the final reason is because he never gave up on what he wanted to do.

The story Frankenstein can be interpreted differently by many people. Some people may view Frankenstein as a hero. Others however, stick with the traditional idea that he is a monster. Many people have a set opinion on who they think Frankenstein is. My opinion; however, is not a set opinion. I can see where both sides are coming from and agree with both ideas. In my opinion, Frankenstein could be seen as both a monster and a hero.

A hero does not fight for fame and glory but for the greater good. A hero is someone who goes through adversity to help others in desperate times. A hero fights evil, and defends people. Beowulf should be considered a hero because he is a strong, brave warrior who defended his people and slayed evil monsters.
To many, Christopher Columbus was a very remarkable man of history. His many discoveries and conquests, despite all the hardships faced, have led others to believe that he is some sort of hero. But is that really what he is? A hero? In A people’s History of the United States by Howard Zinn, he states, “To emphasize the heroism of Columbus and his successors as navigators and discoverers, and to deemphasize their genocide, is not a technical necessity, but an ideological choice”. This quote is true, in the sense that history is often told from a biased perspective due to being told or written by an objective historian that is able to prove their thoughts with details and information.
