It’s main function was to assert Augustus’s position as a god to people in smaller, less populated areas of Egypt so small temple like this were commissioned in multiple villages. In fact, almost identical temples can be found in museums across the world. Although the temple was not incredibly prominent when it was built and didn’t receive as many visitors as other temples at the time it is still a great example of Egyptian architecture and roman eclecticism. The temple is divided into two parts: a gate that is twenty six feet tall, and a main temple that is twenty two feet wide and forty four feet long. The temple itself is architecturally simple, the inside area consists of a small, open antechamber and a more private inner sanctum where offerings would take place.
Speer’s first introduction to Nazism was in 1930 where he attended a meeting which Hitler spoke at. He admitted that he was swayed by Hitler’s charisma and his speech gave Speer a sense of hope thus, joining the Nazi Party. This led to his first commission of renovating Hanke’s home in Berlin in 1932, leaving the Nazi Leaders impressed. Goebbels offered him his second job to rebuild the Propaganda Ministry with a promise from Speer that it would be completed within seven months. Speer gained a reputation from this commission as not only a creative architect but also an efficient organiser.
Two Forced Loans (parliamentary grants) where used for Henry’s second French War in 1522 and 1523 which raised £250,000. His Act of Resumption 1515 by claiming back royal lands given away in earlier reigns increased royal revenue. Wolsey was extremely successful in the area’s that where more important to Henry. On the other hand, some his greatest failures were acknowledged in this area, gaining him powerful enemies among the landowners and in Parliament. He conveyed poor management in achieving difficult tasks like in the anticlerical parliament of 1515 and had to settle for only half of what he had demanded in the Forced Loan standoff of 1523 as people resented the request and refused

Multiple treaties were made with the Native Americans; however, these treaties were rarely enforced and often broken, especially during the time of gold rushes. Once the United States had fully expanded to the West, it seemed like the only thing left to do was populate the area. However, there was a problem, Native Americans occupied and had occupied the Great Plains for hundreds of years. To solve this problem, the United Stated government created Native American reservations to avoid clashes over land boundaries between Native Americans and white settlers, and issued a series of treaties with the Native Americans in attempt to buy out their land and relocate them. By confining Native American tribes, the military could keep a watchful eye on their activity and occasionally provided for by federal effort.
to forge military alliances with kingdoms west of his northwestern archenemy the Xiongnu (or Hun) tribes. He charged General Zhang Qian with this mission, giving him one hundred of his best fighting men and valuable gifts to seal the military cabals. Thirteen years later, having been a Xiongnu hostage for ten years, General Zhang returned to the Imperial Han court with only one other member of the original party. Though he had failed to make a single military alliance, General Zhang enthralled the court with information of the thirty-six commercially vibrant kingdoms west of China's frontier. Compounding the Emperor's interest was his description of the magnificent horses he'd seen in the Ferghana valley (modern day Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan); horses that were stronger and faster than any in China, horses so fine as to render the Chinese army

It is important because it is a place where people can go to honor the men and women who gave their lives for freedom and our way of life.
His success in implementing arms treaties and starting foreign relations with these other countries was significant. It became the era of “Nixonomics (Sons).” Basically “Nixonomics” was opened trade routes for China and the US, proposed a steep tax in imported goods and a freeze on all wage and price increases for the next ninety days (Nixon). His purpose was to try and stabilize the national debt. Also, the value of a U.S. dollar dropped. Nixon then devalued the American dollar; he did this by severing its ties to gold.
It was left for Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, to make some sort of justification for the carnage. He was invited to give “a few appropriate remarks,” and he delivered 272 words, which are recognized as a masterpiece of the English Language. Only a short time ago, seventy-seven years, the Constitution of the United States became fact, but the struggle continued. The profoundly moving text can be found anywhere. It is the last part that draws our attention.
