This was the reason that I enjoyed the novel so much. The novel presented a historical background with the warfare and battles, but it also provided a storyline between the characters. It was not just a boring history book, but Shaara made the Battle of Gettysburg into an interesting novel that teaches not only the history of the battle, but what went into the planning of the battle. Many history textbooks only talk about the battle, but this novel provided insight into what happened surrounding the battle. In the novel, Shaara seems to point out one of General Lee’s only weaknesses during the war, which was playing the offensive instead of the defensive like Longstreet had
Instead, he comes across a piece of work that has nothing to do with animal life. The title to the common reader has no relation to the essay. To them, the whole essay talks about different ways of how to experience events and properly learn from them. 1. When Percy uses the example of the tourist going to the Grand Canyon, the common reader would not have a problem.
Annotated Bibliography "The Dieppe Raid." Juno Beach Centre. Web. 03 Nov. 2009. . This website had a lot of reading to do but was very helpful by focusing on the most important topics and explaining thoroughly why, when, how the battle had begun and what was going on in the battle and who was in it.
He draws very little information from secondary sources, however, and this oversight is evident. The bibliography is missing important texts from such influential Southern historians as Drew Gilpin Faust, Eugene Genovese, George Rable, and William Freehling, for example. As a result, the book lacks historical context to give the narrative larger meaning and intellectual force, especially in regard to the issues of slavery, secession, and Reconstruction. Cisco is writing to an unreconstructed Southern audience, and neo- Confederates will find much to appreciate. Like Wellman's
Should you have any other questions, post them here and someone with more knowledge on the topic may answer. Good Luck! ________________________________________ One other suggestion This response submitted by CUR on 10/8/01.

Ernest H. Cherrington. (Westerville, Ohio American Issue Press 1920). Prohibition The books chosen deal with an influential period in United States history, which is of course prohibition. These books have similarities, such as they both chronicle some of the history of the temperance movement, going back into the colonial era. In that respect, these books are written from a historical perspective but the book by Cherrington is from the era of prohibition, which has a major impact on his perspective making it vastly different from Szymanski's, who is a modern author who has had the opportunity to observe and study the effects of prohibition.
Tyler Sharp “The Things They Carried,” by Tim O’Brien, is a selection from the book of the same name that uses manipulation of time to create an interesting and personal account of characters that participated in the Vietnam War. The story is told by a third-person narrator and describes the actions and personalities of an American squad of soldiers through a repetitive and iterative use of the description of the articles each individual carried. “he Things They Carried” uses a different approach to enhance the story. It manipulates the time-frame of the story by mixing the order of the events, altering the speed of events that take place and, most importantly, giving the reader a feel for what the characters experienced by delivering an iterative and repetitive frequency to the details of what they carried with them.
History 201 Winter 2011 Written Assignment # 2 Describe how the present-day concerns of Frederick Jackson Turner, Thomas Perkins Abernathy, Arthur M. Schlesinger, and Robert Remini influenced their interpretations of Andrew Jackson and western history. Explain how “theory” both helps and hinders the interpretations of the past, then draw a conclusion about whether historical objectivity is possible, or even desirable. Andrew Jackson was a prominent figure in American history. Nicknamed “Old Hickory”, many historians have investigated on his life and career, and different interpretations were given about him and western history. Historical theory helps but at the same time hinders the interpretation of the past.
The Northern Renaissance was considered a rebirth of classical values which included Roman values. The North although there was a span of a thousand years was still trying to deal with the fact that it was conquered by Rome and their people were once Roman Slaves. Trade and ideas from Italy flowed to the North in ways of commerce. The North had strong artistic traditions coupled with Burgundian dukes and the guild systems which led to the creation of their huge Gothic Cathedrals. As trade grew in the North so did their wealth.
The difference is that history is any past time or event that has ever occurred and historiography is the physical written record of these particular events. What is difficult is the fact that historians are only able to write about the artifacts and memories of themselves or others. Because of this, all that a historian can do is attempt to retrieve and develop information about the past and in the process, hopefully discover new facts and information. From this, he or she hope to develop a semi-accurate conclusion of past events based on artifacts, testimonies, and other written documentation. It is a well known fact amongst them and others that neither they, nor any other person can provide a completely accurate and unbiased document stating past history.
