The best president in U.S history I believe is Abraham Lincoln. Abe Lincoln deserved to be the best president because he led his country through the civil war, abolished slavery by issuing the emancipation proclamation, and by issuing the emancipation proclamation the north gained British support. Abe created an economic development program, which began when the country was bankrupt and made the United States the world’s greatest industrial power. I believe that the 2nd best president is George Washington. Washington led the revolutionary war which began the birth of a new nation which goes under foreign policy, helped with the constitution that had much to do with equal rights, and dealt with the whiskey rebellion.
In the process, they could hold back a number of potential rebellions and create a consensus of popular support for the rule of a new, privileged leadership.When we look at the American Revolution this way, it was a work of genius, and the Founding Fathers deserve the awed tribute they have received over the centuries. They created the most effective system of national control devised in modern times, and showed future generations of leaders the advantages of combining paternalism with command. 2. According to Zinn, how did the creation of the United States benefit the upper class? They created a world where a few families owned most of the wealth.
He served as a role model for countless soldiers during America’s Revolutionary War and helped establish future presidents. He was a believer in a strong presidency and a stable government. George Washington inherited a nation that was fearful of power. He acted very carefully and was very much aware that the young nation was in desperate need of a strong central Government. He appointed Thomas Jefferson as Secretary of State, General Henry Knox as Secretary of War and General Edmund Randolph as Attorney General.
Matt Ulinski 1/6/14 History New Deal The Great Depression was an economic disaster the hit the United States so hard that the lives of the whole country were affected in one way or another. There was little response from the first president who was in office when the disaster first struck, Herbert Hoover, but Franklin Delano Roosevelt who was elected after him formed a series of plans which collectively he referred to as The New Deal. The Three main points that constituted this plan of action is what some like to call the three R’s; Relief, Recovery, and Reform. While all three were crucial to the recovery of this great nation the two that seemed to be the most beneficial were relief, and recovery. When all things are considered, these
Due to the country facing the biggest economic crisis since the second world war, Obama and Democratic Party leaders suggested an economic stimulus package to confront the crisis. The nation needed immediate relief and great recovery from the economy downfall. The nation needed a reform to avoid future depressions, due to these being major factors, relief, recovery and reform became Franklin D. Roosevelt's goals when he took the honor as president. The New Deal was a form of authority given to the government to aid help to all classes, groups and sections of our country. The New Deal plan was a form to deliver relief to the unemployed and those in danger of losing farms and homes, it was also set out to recover agriculture and businesses, and reform.
United States History Proficiency Task Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson where two very important men in our nation’s history. Both had very strong opinions on topics such as: interpreting the constitution, the aristocracy of the United States, and how strong the state and national government should be. Of the two, Hamilton’s opinions toward our new nation’s government and policies were greater than Jefferson’s. “Alexander Hamilton believed in the importance of a strong central (national) government, and convinced Congress to use the Elastic Clause to pass far-reaching laws.” The Elastic Clause gave him the ability to pass all laws “necessary and proper,” such as paying off the nation’s debt, constructing the National Bank, and placing an import tariff as well as a whiskey tax. Jefferson and his republicans were believers in a strong state government.
During the Great Depression, President Roosevelt used several revolutionary tactics to heal the suffering American economy. These tactics, the providing of public service jobs, the movement for social security and the implementation of a "blanket code" for workers rights, had great success and greatly revolutionized the role of the federal government. The providing of public service jobs (the New Deal) was the tactic that served to heal the most daunting problem in American society, unemployment (document J). In 1935 the Roosevelt administration created the WPA to help employ Americans for publicly funded projects such as "city beautification." As seen in Document J this jobs did help to greatly lower the percentage of unemployed between 1935 and 1938.
President Eisenhower stated in his First Inauguration address, his plans to establish a stronger Federal Government, as well as an effective political power. He also stated that the American people may have to sacrifice what they hold dear in order to stay strong and powerful. (Eisenhower, First Inauguration Address) This was Eisenhower’s reaching point of power for after this speech Eisenhower gained his apex of power. Soon afterwards, Eisenhower began Dynamic Conservatism, which mostly consisted of keeping New Deal Policies in effect and expanding on many, by creating new offices such as the Department of Health, the Department of Education, and the Department of Welfare. (The Right Man for the Right Job).
In the 1600’s Louis XIV used absolutism to gain power and to do what he thought is the most beneficial thing for his country. Louis XIV was one of the first leaders to use absolute power and even now those techniques are still used. Louis XIV and Hu Jintao used ceremonies to make themselves appear more important, policies against religious minorities, and economic advisors and economic reforms to increase power. These specific methods are what Hu Jintao and Louis XIV enforced during their time of leadership and is why they were able to gain power over nations. Louis XIV used the Palace of Versailles as his center of political power by having huge ceremonies to make himself look powerful and important.
America`s role as world policeman Since the United States of America gained the right to form their own nation, as a result to winning the war of independence, they considered themselves as the protector of freedom and democracy. Those beliefs grew stronger and later became the main reason as to why they started meddling into the rest of the worlds business after a long period of isolating themselves from European conflicts. During the 1800’s the US tried to isolated themselves from being involved with the European imperialistic politics. However, it was inevitable since their interests clashed as they grew bigger. In 1898 the Spanish- American war began when America decided to liberate the Spanish colonies Cuba, Puerto Rico, Guam and the Philippines.
