He gained this by being the first American combatant to make it to the top of the castle walls and by recovering his unit’s colors for the injured James Longstreet. By the end of the Mexican-American War, he was reassigned to the 9th Infantry, and by 1849 he was promoted to first lieutenant. This U.S. victory was the only triumph that Pickett would ever know. The assault that Pickett is best known for is Pickett’s Charge. This battle occurred on July 3, 1863, and it only lasted forty-five minutes.
Introduction I’ve chosen this theme for essay as I wanted to learn more information about historical figure Ernesto “Che” Guevara , the ultimate revolutionary icon and a symbol of rebellion, nonconformity, and social inequality. He always fought so the common man could be equal. He showed this throughout his childhood, his college days, his role in the Cuban Revolution, and his revolutionary work in Africa and South America to his death. This essay includes quotations of Che’s contemporaries and journalists about his personality, as I think that these quotations will help to understand the image of Ernesto Guevara. Additionally, he was a prolific writer and diarist, composing a seminal manual on guerrilla warfare, along with a best-selling memoir about his youthful motorcycle journey across South America.
Tuesday 13th December Why was the Battle of the Somme such a disaster for the British Army? On July 1st 1916, a battle commenced that made the bloodiest day inn British military history. 60,000 British men died on the first day of fighting, with a third of them perishing in the first hour. The aim of this essay is to examine factors of the battle and decide which one contributed the most to the failure of the battle. The plan for the Battle of the Somme was to assemble a huge new army of soldiers.

The CIA equipped and trained more then 400 men fight under the command of Colonel Carlos Castillo Armas, and these men were also used for propaganda campaigns. They even created a Voice of Liberation radio station which would inform its listeners how the government is disloyal and can’t be trusted. The operation successfully ended leading Arbenz's to resign from office. The "Ten Years of Spring," is referred to the decade of dramatic social, economic, and political change that had occurred in Guatemala. This question has been asked many times “Why Do We Fight?” I honestly don’t think there is one single answer to this question because every single fight has its own reason and why it has occurred.
The Cry of Dolores marked the beginning of the long and bloody Mexican War of Independence, which would not conclude until 1821. Millions were killed or displaced in this long conflict. During his trial, Hidalgo seemed to understand what he had wrought and recanted his actions, perhaps foreseeing the bloodbath to come. The Cry of Dolores was the spark that ignited the tinderbox of long pent-up resentment of the Spanish in Mexico. Taxes had been raised to pay for fiascoes like the disastrous (for Spain) 1805 Battle of Trafalgar and in 1808 Napoleon invaded Spain, deposed the king and placed his brother Joseph Bonaparte on the throne.
The Alamo which was known as the Battle site is now “the most popular tourist site in Texas.” The Battle of San Jacinto was led by Sam Houston on April 21, 1836. The Texas Army defeated the Mexican Army and many died from the Mexican Army. The general of the Mexican army at that time was General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna. Antonio Lopez was then captured after the defeat and later signed the peace treaties which forced the Mexican Army to leave Texas. During the Texas revolution, there was a variety of weapons used.
Although each man fighting may have had a different reason, I believe the vast majority wanted independence. Travis, one of the leaders in this battle, wrote, "Under the flag of independence, we are ready to peril our lives a hundred times a day, and to dare the monster who is fighting us under a blood-red flag, threatening to murder all prisoners and to make Texas a waste desert.” Another man by the name of Daniel Cloud, who fought in the Alamo wrote, “"The cause of Philanthropy, of Humanity, of Liberty and human happiness throughout the world, called loudly on every man who can to aid Texas.... If we succeed, the Country is ours.” These two quotes display how the men were fighting for their country to become independent from Mexico, therefore giving them freedom and rights. When Cloud speaks of having Texas finally becoming “ours” it represents freedom and independence from the country that ruled them for so
