Samuel Adams and John Hancock were highly influential in the spurring of the American Revolution. Each contributed by provoking the American colonists into action, especially in Boston.

For instance, the writer claims that the book Uncle Tom’s Cabin and its common predecessor who attacks the topic of slavery in order for the abolitionists to unite together and fight for the same beliefs, isn’t fair or moral since they were disrupting the peaceful state that the U.S was in and shifting the people apart even more. On the other hand, the other passage written by the Southern literary messenger of Richmond also opposed Mrs. Stowe;s tale but he/she had a very biased opinion towards the South so he/she just argued using his/her untrustworthy opinion and very little knowledge. For example, the messenger didn’t think that the author of the story should have put emphasis on the abolition actions since they didn’t deserve the attention and it was unfair for the South since they their opinions didn’t get noticed. 1) C-1 2) The Pro-Southern Court Speaks (1857) 3) Author: Roger Taney 4) Author’s Position: Against Dred Scott and his wish to become a free African American 5) Bias: The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court has the authority to speak for what he favors and in this case, his bias leaned toward the South so he supported them by going against Dred Scott.

In addition to the fear of Europe’s’ encroaching imperialism, the progressives were afraid of what would happen to the reforms and the movement were the U.S. to declare war (Wilson, 13). War destroyed the family and the family was the center of society and government in the progressive
Soldiers from Continental Army had not been paid, and they feared that Congress would not meet their promises. By early 1783, some officers were considering forcing Congress to pay, but, obviously, Congress had no money. Disappointed by his fellow soldiers, George Washington gave a passionate speech. His message opposed anyone "who wickedly attempts to open the floodgates of civil discord and deluge our rising empire in blood." Not only was the country indebt but also the colonist fought so hard for their independence and their country.
Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” added fuel to the already seemingly lit fire in the American colonies. Paine not being a war fighting man, deserted his loyalty to England and encouraged others in the America’s to do the same as well. He asked why a landmass as big as North America could by under control by such a small country like England?

William Seward was a leading anti-slavery figure who later became secretary of state in the Lincoln administration. He believed that the two systems held by the North and the South (free labour and slavery) were “incompatible”.

While not everyone felt so strongly about this in the North (many didn’t care about the slavery issue at all) it was a reason that soldiers and leaders on either side went to war and fought for (in the North to end it, in the South to defend it). Lincoln was of the opinion that while he would never accept the extension of slavery he would make no direct attempt to interfere with it where it existed.
One of the greatest things he’s ever done was that e freed the slaves. He was able to go against the confederacy (his own country) and fight to help keep America a united country. He risked his life for our country, and then he was assassinated for standing up for our country. He is an idol, if that’s the right word? He is more than courageous.

President George Washington emphatically stated that,” we should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the promise of profiting by dearly bought experiences.” Many doubted his greatness but his impact on the United States of America remains paramount. Winning the War for American Independence, being the first president and shaping the way the Constitution was written, were all attributes of the “Father Of this Nation”, President George Washington. From his youth he lived by his belief that “Knowledge is Power” and he was not afraid to let the world know that God is an important part of everything we do. He was an advocate for justice and freedom. The little details in his life predicted his behavior in loftier and more difficult situations presented to him.
