The colonists, however, were used to fighting in their own style, very relaxed, and guerilla-like. This was in stark contrast to the British style of fighting, which was very upright, rigid, and lots of drills. The colonists were very unhappy with the British officers trying to take control, and this led to bitter feelings later on. These feelings intensified when Britain kept part of their army in the colonies. They meant to use it to protect the colonists, and make sure the French and the Native American’s were keeping their promises, but the colonists viewed it as a standing army, ready to turn against them.
Congress men always think twice about the fact of losses of their States and their Civilians. Therefore the Congress now desired to build up upon nothing that would invent their opponent. The main concept behind all of these was nothing but to create a strong centralized government which is having more decentralized in authority and power. Congress felt establishing a weak national government will win the approval that time simply because it didn’t threaten or didn’t change the basic concepts of the exciting British laws among the States. Somehow they knew the limitation on the powers of Congress will be became more obvious once they change the method.
I feel it was more positive towards Sam because in my organizer he was very hard on the Soldiers but also that’s good because it makes the soldiers stronger and he taught them how to win wars. Sam did the right decision when he told Lord Kitchener that he wouldn’t let the Canadians be spread throughout the English army, only thing he did was made the Canadians use the Ross rifle when the Soldiers truly hated it because it was single shot bolt action. 3. Describe what it was like for a Canadian soldier fighting in World War I, based on what you see in the two paintings by Richard Jack (The Second Battle of Ypres (1915) and The Battle of Vimy Ridge (1917)) and the letters written by Sergeant Harry Leacock and Captain Harold Tylor. Organize your information in the following table: Paintings by Richard Jack|Letters|
Canada struggled to keep US influences from weakening its national identity. Canada developed its independence when they decided to create a flag for Canada. Pearson believed that Canadians should sever their British connections and that Canada needed an identity that would be meaningful to all Canadians. The last step toward making Canada a completely independent nation was to sign the new Constitution Act, giving Canada the ability to make changes to the Constitution. Canada took this opportunity and is now the independent nation that we live in
On the other hand, the internal conflict is the difficulties of creating Arnold’s own autonomy while being faithful to his tribe. Arnold refuses to give up but at the cost of losing his best friend and being considered to betray his tribe. I don’t think this conflict can be resolved only through Arnold’s hard work; it also relies on others’ understanding. I’ll never forget what Rowdy says to Arnold, “You’re an old-time nomad.” It seems Rowdy finally forgives Arnold but I think Rowdy has never really get mad at Arnold. They’re truly best friends.
During 1914-1918 at the time of the First World War the perception on war was very different that it is now, the men were uneducated on what war was like and the hardships they would have to face. The media of the day glorified war and there were no other mass media alternatives that highlighted the problems of war. War was perceived as honorable and manly. All the men were encouraged to join and ‘shirking your duty' was frowned upon. Public opinion in the world at the beginning of the war was optimistic and young men were looked upon to fight for their countries.
This effected political development in the New England Colonies. They believed that everyone needs to put the community before themselves. They thought no one man should have too much power (Doc A). This idea of no man having too much power influenced how the colonists’ felt about victories. After the colonists’ attack on the Pequot’s Mystic River village, they gave the credit to God and thanked him for beating the enemy (Doc D).
Military officers job is not to look who is with him and who is against, their job is to have the squat prepared and be ready to go to war. And democracy is all about some people agreeing and disagreeing. And now military has become a career, and "you can be all you want to be", they appeal of peoples self interest, and put them I to a situation of self sacrifice. But say that people will learn a trade, and be able to go to college after they finish their service. That is what gets people sucked in, because its an easy way out for someone who have gone through a depressing time, and weren't able to get any sort of
True Tales from the Battlefield I’ve found the story How to Tell a True War Story to be a tremendous story with moments of gore, but nonetheless an attractive piece of work. I believe that this story is a representation of his entire story. It’s almost as though O’Brien is being completely honest in this story, and he’s divulging all of the lies and secrets that we will soon read, or have already read. One main idea that I believe O’Brien is trying to get across, throughout the entire story, is the fact that “of course, a true war story is never about war” (296). One line that continues to resonate in my mind is when O’Brien is telling the story of Rat shooting the buffalo, and the letter he writes to Curt’s sister.
I thought him to be a great president, but wasn’t completely sure why. I never could have imagined the things he did for our country. He knew it was inevitable that we would be drawn into war, but instead of pressing Congress to enter war, he let the war come to us. Something most leaders would never consider. I have the utmost respect for FDR for the way he handled his disability.
