An example od strong leader would be Jamestown’s governor John Smith. Thoughtful and powerful man in every sense of the word. Then other important thing is that English colonists unlike spanish didn’t want a dominion over the native Indians the British men just wanted land… English North America was a place where businessmen sought investment and ordinary men and women wanted to escape from religious persecution. All they wanted was freedom and better life.As the great leader of Jamestown said:No man will leave England to have worse life in America”
To some the missionaries had no impact on. However the Western ideas did have a huge impact on Nwoye which changed his true self and altered his identity. Even before the westerners had stepped foot onto Ibo land, Nwoye was and outcast in his society. With his father being so great and successful, Nwoye had a high standard to live up to. One of which he could not match.
This means he’s a credible source to pay attention to and take into consideration. This leader shows his intentions of defending his people to the best of his ability. He changes to third person but talks about himself when he says, “He has fought for his countrymen, the squaws and papooses, against white men, who came, year after year, to cheat them and take away their lands” (qtd. in Drake). In this section, Black Hawk actually uses both ethos and pathos.
In the speech written by Patrick Henry he is trying to declare that the American people are under British rule, and are being completely controlled. Patrick says through his speech that if we do not fight now there will eventually be nothing to fight for, because the British rule will take over. In the speech by Benjamin Franklin he talks about some parts of the constitution approve, he believes that the government is right for the people but it was truly not made for the people. These speeches were both written to solve a problem, these two brave men ready to do something to fight that problem, to try to rise against the odds and skirmish for what they believe in. In the speech written by Patrick Henry he starts by setting up others to listen to him by talking about patriotism.
With the number of personnel the rebels had vs union was little to none, they held off the north by smart tactics of well-trained officers. It should have been much easier battle based on the advantages he had at hand. I don’t know if the outcome would have been different had not Stonewell Jackson died, from my prospective he must have been a man who was looked up to with his military experience and victories. Once Lee and Davis surrendered and went home in peace it lifted much worry and weight off Lincoln’s shoulders. Over all I do think that Lincoln was overall the driving force who drove the country to unity once again, Could he have done better I do believe so.
Let’s start with colonists; one of the biggest advantages they had over Britain was they had a major cause for wanting to fight. They were fighting for their independence, pride, liberty and the rights they deserved. They had a desire to win which was probably stronger than England’s desire because they were fighting for their own cause. Another major advantage America had was how far away from home the British were. They were over 3,000 miles from home, leading to poor communication with supply lines and their leaders.
The differences between the two is what makes Ralston a hero and McCandless not. Although they were both put in life-threatening situations, Ralston is more heroic than McCandless because of his commitment to society and the fact that he sees being stuck as a problem he can solve. Contrary to Ralston, McCandless made the decision to isolate himself from everyone who had ever cared about him when he began tramping. Along his journey McCandless formed many meaningful relationships. The friendships he developed as he tramped around the western United States were very strong, but he portrayed that he was not as involved in the relationship as the other person.
This was, in my opinion, the event that officially qualifies him as a traitor; the fact that he disobeyed the government whenever he pleased. In conclusion, Nathaniel Bacon was a traitor. He purposely disobeyed the laws, did what ever he pleased because he knew there would be no repercussions, and he rallied up his own mini rebel army. He had good reasoning for things that he did but he did not think things though very well and he was very physical about problems. This is historically significant because he may have been the only one who would have fought against the government so diligently.
Okonkwo's one and only weakness was his fear of becoming a failure like his father. This fear drove Okonkwo to embrace the values of manliness and fueled his desire to be strong; which then drove him to rashness and in the end contributed to his death. Accepting the ways of manhood isn’t a sign of weaknesses, the problem is how narrowly he defines it. Okonkwo was part of a patriarchal society and the male gender was already established with great authority. For Okonkwo, however, any kind of softness and tenderness was a sign of weakness.
All of the colonists were killed and John Smith was taken to see Chief Powhatan. He was sentenced to death, but his life was saved because of the Chief’s daughter Pocahontas. Captain John Smith was great leader and made great efforts in Jamestown. He showed them how to farm and trade with the local Indians. He left Jamestown in 1609 to return to England.
