The first time a child leaves home is an important milestone in every family. This principle applies to even families belonging to the nobility in the mid-eighteenth century. In Lord Chesterfield’s letter to his son, he voices many opinions about him that many parents would like to say to their children even today. Lord Chesterfield skillfully uses subliminal messages in diction, humble concessions, contradictory language, indirect threats, and demoralizing lectures to impose his values on his insubordinate son. It is clear to the reader that his son takes his father for granted and the letter is a last-ditch effort by Lord Chesterfield to help him.
Cowart, Shelby 7/19/12 AP English 11 Some Advice Dear Boy… It is always a huge breakthrough for any family when a child leaves home. This obvious proposition even applies to noble families during the eighteenth-century such as Lord Chesterfield’s family. In his own letter to his son, Lord Chesterfield delivers numerous opinions that many parents today would still agree with. In a tactful way, Lord Chesterfield sends subconscious messages through personification, diction, analogy, and rhetorical questions in order to impose his values on his incompliant son. It’s incredibly evident to the reader that Lord Chesterfield’s son takes advantage of him and this letter is probably Lord Chesterfield’s last effort to guide his son.
The most important factor and root for all of the problems was Charles. Due to his personality and as he ruled by Personal Monarchy, this shaped how he deployed his prerogative. His policies throughout 1625-1629 were often extreme and passed as a reaction to what he felt was a threat from parliament and an act of disloyalty on their behalf, knowingly angering them. These provocative actions were very much resented by Parliament who felt he was threatening them and provoking them, thus causing the collapse within their relationship. The next most important reason for the collapse was religion and Charles’ push toward Arminianism and absolutism.
This hard truth was true even in the mid to late 1700s—during Benjamin Franklin’s lifetime. In Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin, Franklin clearly illustrates his concept of “Father”, not only in his own biological father, as well as God the Father, but also in the world. For Franklin, the concept of attaining wealth and prestige was directly related to his foundation in Biblical values and to instruction from his father. Franklin demonstrates this clearly: …and my Father having among his Instructions to me when a Boy, frequently repeated a Proverb of Solomon, `Seest thou a Man diligent in his Calling, he shall stand before Kings, he shall not stand before mean Men.' I from thence consider'd Industry as a Means of obtaining Wealth and Distinction, which encourag'd me.
She cared about him and believed of what he was capable to do in his life so much that even followed him to West Point when he was a cadet, and lived there so she could be close to him. The main influence in MacArthur’s life was the military academy West Point. He lived his life by the West Point values of duty and honor, which shaped his personality and who he became. General Douglas MacArthur was one of America’s most powerful leaders in history. His fantastic strategies combined with his skills of being a great general helped many of the outcomes of the American conflicts in his time and many of the victories may not have been received if it was for MacArthur.
Morgan had come to New York he had started work at Duncan, Sherman & Co. where he was an accountant for the company. This first job had created a solid foundation for J.P. and his future, because he knew such important people and also because his company was connected with George Peabody & Co. in which at this time the Civil war had broken out in America. With this J.P. Morgan had took the strategy his father had taken and worked both from New York and in London, while doing this he greatly increased his financial wealth through all his firms. In 1864 J.P. was a very important figure in the firm, Dabney, Morgan & Co. After this partnership had ended Morgan went on and held a firm with Tony Drexler called Drexler, Morgan & Co. This firm was the one that would set J.P. Morgan out from the rest, because it is here that Morgan had accumulated most of his wealth and business assets.
France wasn’t part of the colonies like America was, America was sick of being treated badly, and unfairly so they decided to fight. But as for France they were having trouble with their government and needed to create a new one witch they did. And to me it seems like America had much more at stake. The American and French Revolution both worked out in favor of France and for America they both got what they wanted France got the government they fought for, and America parted ways with Britain. The two revolutions were a big part in both America’s history, and a big part in Frances history.
Many look to George Washington for the great things he accomplished in his lifetime. Winning the War for American Independence, being the first president, and shaping the way the Constitution was written and how the federal government was formed are all attributable to him. However, from his youth, he was a man who focused on the little details in his life predicted his behavior in large situations as they were presented to him. The mentality and experience he had from such a young age made him into the great leader he was. People who were under him as president must have enjoyed having a loyal educated president who knew what he was doing.
Even though the names and roles of the political parties were changed throughout time, they still divided and created turmoil because of the competition between them. This issue was foreseen by the first president George Washington. He even warned about it by writing it in his Farewell Address to America (cite) yet despite of his warning they instead continue with the political parties. Those parties became the Republican Party in the North and the Democratic Party in the South. There were many differences between the two and each difference created more and more tension until they reached the breaking point of war.
