Since the death of President Lincoln there have been countless debates, essays, and dissertations on his greatest accomplishments. There are so many accomplishments of this great man that it is hard to decide which are the best, but for this assignment I have selected two specific accomplishments. January 1, 1863 President Lincoln issues the Emancipation Proclamation freeing all the slaves in territories held by confederate states. Although I do believe the timing of the Proclamation was more a Military Move than a Moral Issue. This Proclamation was used the boost the moral cause of the Union.

In this paper, Danial’s thesis seems to be clear on what he is going to write about. Danial is explaining how citizenship can save America through Barber; the author. He points out some strong statements where he is able to back up it up. As Danial explained ”Every nation in the world looked at America with admiration and not only did they respect America, but they believed in the leadership offered by America. The leadership did not come from the government however; it came from hard working citizens who were more concerned about the well being of their nation than their own lives” (2).
Throughout American history, we have seen a great deal of Presidents. We have seen some that were good, and others not as good. A President must do a lot for his or her country. They must be dependable, intelligent, unbiased, diplomatic, and kind. The President must carry America, and represent America’s integrity.
In the crucible, John Proctor from the outset appears to be a hardworking, independent-thinking man. However, he is haunted “by the judge that sits in his heart” which reminds him of his past affair with Abigail. When Abigail maliciously pursues the townspeople and his wife, he decides that in order to rescue those from the court he must admit to the whole town his sins. This great test of honesty shows how a conflict can precipitate great changes in character. The audience is shown that fundamentally, John Proctor is an honest man.
The old man who first changed his vote acknowledged this admirable transformational leadership quality when he commented: “it is not easy to stand alone against the ridicule of others. He gambled for support and I gave it to him”. A transformational leader is a role model: • He powerfully modeled having a thoughtful, investigative and inquiring mind to the rest of the jury members by re-examining the key evidences of the prosecutor and the 2 witnesses. Other members of the jury soon followed his example and started raising “reasonable doubts” which led to a unanimous “Not guilty” verdict. • He Frequently reinforces that the burden of proof is on the prosecution and that if there is reasonable doubt, then they should acquit the kid • This character has a very clear idea of what the goal is here.
Bush, but his personality was that of a serious, humble, family man who like all other presidents wanted the best for their country. As I mentioned president Reagan was a humble, family-man but that didn’t make him a weakling when it came down to tough decisions. An achievement of his that demonstrates his toughness was when he took on PATCO, which was when members of the federal air traffic control union went on strike, which in fact they were violating a federal regulation. He declared the strike a peril to national security, he ended up giving the workers an ultimatum and fired more than 11,000 of the controllers which sent a strong signal to the union workers. Also an unforgettable achievement of Reagans was ending the cold war which had been raging all the way back since World War 2 and America’s fear of communisms quest for world domination.
Through out the trial, racism was a prevalent factor, eventually leading to Jefferson’s unfair conviction and death penalty sentence. Jefferson’s aunt, Miss Emma asked Grant if he could teach Jefferson to be a man before he was executed.

Grant was unenthusiastic with the Miss Emma’s inquiry, but agreed to the request.
My grand-father was the Senator and Army General of the Zimbabwe Defence forces. He was part of the current governmental System we have in Zimbabwe today. As a member of the Zanu-pf Party which is run by President Robert Mugabe, my grand-father made sure the rest of my family was fully involved and aware of the political situation that took place in Zimbabwe. At the time Zimbabwe was in good condition. It had only just gained its independence 15 years before and as I remember Mugabe won his elections against Morgan Tsvangirai.
