    Reaction of Chapters 1 and 2 I have just finishes reading the first 2 chapters of "A Night to Remember."

  • Shays Rebellion Country Stronger States
    314 words
    I believe that the states had all the rights to take the tools and properties of the farmers to pay off the farmer's debts. I think that the property was a kind of collateral for the money that the farmers borrowed for the ammunition. I do not think that Daniel Shays and his band of farmers had any right to rebel and close down the banks. I do think, however, that what he did was also a good thing. It made the states realize that a stronger central government was needed. It was used by importan...

What amazes me about this story is not the fact that two people went into a school and shot a bunch of people (apparently this is the seventh in-school multiple homicide in ten past 18 months), its the fact that the media has given extensive c...

Opening night, it all changed. We stood backstage, in costume and makeup, and I dared to peak from the side of the stage out at the huge auditorium. It was ...

    The Napoleonic Era "Victory belongs to the most persevering." Should Napoleon have been able to foresee the future, he perhaps would have restated this quote into something along the lines of "don't let your ego get in the way of victory." It would be difficult for one to argue that Napoleon had a great impact on France during his rule from 1799 to 1814. However, one could argue whether he was successful in his rule, or if he left a positive impact and carried out his will in his own best intere...
