Presidents

The United States of America is constantly changing. Each president makes changes that
shape this country. Three presidents that made some of the most important contributions
to our nations history were, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D.
Roosevelt. They were involved in the three most important wars fought by the United
States of America.

George Washington was a great president who led this country to independence. He fought
the British until they surrendered. The United States won the war. Furthermore, he
appointed people to counsel him in making decisions that helped form economic and social
stability. As the first president, he created a pattern whereby all future presidents
were given the opportunity to make their own improvements to the country, yet, allow a
continuity of leadership.

Abraham Lincoln came to the presidency in a time of turbulence. Although he faced
hardships while in the office of president, he faced challenges before he was elected that

  • BLACK RAGE HISTORICAL STUDY
    BLACK RAGE HISTORICAL STUDY BLACK RAGE: A HISTORICAL ANALYSIS Outline Thesis Statement: Throughout the history of the United States, as seen through an analysis of African-American literature and rhetoric, black rage has not only existed, but has grown. As the momentum toward equality is clearly evident in the black race’s struggle, the question of where (or when) this rage will subside (if ever) remains unanswered. In examining black rage, four distinct periods of American history should be con
  • New JerseyHistory from colonization to the civil w
    New JerseyHistory from colonization to the civil war New Jersey-A History, by Thomas Flemming, provides a clear and unbiased historical account from the early stages of this colony far into its birth as a state separate from imperialistic England. Although his historical account tends to be incomplete at times and a few misconceptions are evident, he touches on the many important points in New Jersey history, pointing out that, by observing how this state has dealt with her divisions is instruc
  • Early Europeans
    Early Europeans EARLY EUROPEANS By: Travis H. The first Europeans to arrive in North America were Norse, traveling west from Greenland, where Erik the Red had founded a settlement around the year 985. In 1001 his son Leif is thought to have explored the northeast coast of what is now Canada and spent at least one winter there. While Norse sagas suggest that Viking sailors explored the Atlantic coast of North America down as far as the Bahamas, such claims remain unproven. In 1963, however, the r

    An Outline Of American History AN OUTLINE OF AMERICAN HISTORY Heaven and Earth never agreed better to frame a place for man\'s habitation. John Smith, 1607 CHAPTER 1 THE FIRST AMERICANS At the height of the Ice Age, between 34,000 and 30,000 B.C., much of the world\'s water was contained in vast continental ice sheets. As a result, the Bering Sea was hundreds of meters below its current level, and a land bridge, known as Beringia, emerged between Asia and North America. At its peak, Beringia is
  • Rome
    Rome The Greeks, after their country had been reduced into a province, imputed the triumphs of Rome, not to the merit, but to the FORTUNE, of the republic. The inconstant goddess, who so blindly distributes and resumes her favours, had now consented (such was the language of envious flattery) to resign her wings, to descend from her globe, and to fix her firm and immutable throne on the banks of the Tiber.[1] A wiser Greek, who has composed, with a philosophic spirit, the memorable history of hi
  • American colonies
    american colonies Charter to Sir Walter Raleigh : 1584 Everybody remembers Jamestown, Capt. John Smith, Pocahontas and all the rest. But do you remember Roanoke? In 1585, after a small scouting expedition had returned from North America with two Native Americans and many astonishing stories, Sir Walter Raleigh tried to establish a colony called Roanoke in the land which the British named Virginia , in honor of Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen. The site was actually an island on North America\'s easte
  • My Theory
    My Theory A composition of one\'s own political ideology is a complex task to accomplish. It takes meaningful observation of one\'s present society, the ideologies of past philosophers, and a fusing of different beliefs to offer a better one. It would model Marx\'s dialectic of having an old order (thesis) to fuse with the new order (antithesis) to form a combination (synthesis).(Brown) This is my humble synthesis of political theories to my own shaping of society. First, society would be consid
