As a teenager, Jackson had already suffered through the deaths of his mother, father, two brothers, and also spent time as a prisoner of the British during the Revolution (Hollitz, 194-95). It’s a miracle that Jackson even made it to his adulthood, let alone to lead a democratic movement to the top of American politics. Given the choice, we would never want anyone to go through a torturous childhood like Jackson did. Nevertheless, his childhood experiences helped him mold into exactly the type of person the democrats needed. In the 18th century, the common man of America needed someone in politics who they could relate to.
There were many generals I liked because of their hard work to put their army together. One general named Robert Shaw volunteered and put the Union army of colored people together.

“When a man contributes something of vast importance to a nation, he is set above others and revered” (Schwartz 29), one great man and President who defines that phrase is President Abraham Lincoln, who was taken from the nation way too soon and is the President I most admire and that is admired and modeled by many politicians and citizens of this glorious nation.

Obama has the ability and strength to carry on this nation to restore the damage that has been done in the past eight years.

The Deep Impact of Octavian For forty years Octavian, post 27 B.C. known as Augustus Caesar, held power in Rome and he was able to establish a firm foundation for emperors to come by changing laws and enabling others to act. He believed that the Roman laws had proven to be weak under the Roman Republic and they needed a strong leader. The senate approved and appointed him consul, tribune and commander in chief for life.

Cesar Gutierrez Jr. History 1301 George Washington When thinking of George Washington, first president of the U.S. is probably the first fact that comes to mind. We grow up learning that at such a young age, and sadly that’s probably the only thing some know about him. The numerous amounts of victories in such difficult battles is quite mind blowing, leaves you wondering where we’d be if it wasn’t for him. Which is why George Washing is known as the Father of the U.S. and many will argue, the best president of the U.S. by far. Washington was born on February 22,1732 in Westmoreland County, Virginia and was the first son of his father Augustine Washington and his second wife Mary B. Washington.

Most people underestimated Lincoln since he had such a kind heart. They thought he wouldn’t be capable for this type of position, but they soon found out they were wrong. Today, Lincoln is remembered for his small speech he gave the Gettysburg. It’s called the Gettysburg Address.
