  • Bobbitt's The Shield Of Achilles
    1,081 words
    Achilles's last stand The Shield of Achilles: War, Peace and the Course of History Philip Bobbitt Penguin 25, pp 993 The shield of Achilles was hammered and forged into shape, according to The Iliad, by Hephaestus, who inscribed on it the history of its own making, a tormented saga of unremitting strife, havoc and death. The Marxist critic Georg Lukas turned the shield into an emblem of epic: a story which must not only describe society but analyse the way it works, making clear the dependence o...
  • Roosevelts Rough Riders
    3,847 words
    Roosevelts Rough Riders And Their Path into History R. Andrew Kincheloe Towards the end of the nineteenth century, William McKinley defeated Grover Cleveland for the presidency and there was a huge push for the United States of America to expand beyond its continental boarders. (Lorant, p. 281) With an enthusiasm for a new urge for international Manifest Destiny, the American people wanted to match Europe's imperial power by making Americas weight felt around the world. (Boger p. 714) The extent...
  • Writings Of The Progressive Historians
    6,570 words
    One must decide the meaning of 'progressive historiography. ' It can mean either the history written by 'progressive historians,' or it can mean history written by historians of the Progressive era of American history and shortly after. The focus that was chosen for this paper is more in keeping with the latter interpretation, if for no other reason than it provides a useful compare-and-contrast 'control' literature. The caveat is this: the focus of this report is on the predominant question of ...
  • Union On Little Round Top
    7,463 words
    There's nothing I can say about the parade of still pictures, the faces on the television - except, perhaps, that they all seemed to share a fierce pride in their eyes, photographed for the first time in their Marine Dress Blues. Surely their families are proud of them. I certainly am, and I never got to know any of them. And now, I never will. Names scroll in little yellow letters across the bottom of our glowing screens: Sergeants, and Captains, and Privates. These men have died for us. More w...

  • One Disadvantage History
    640 words
    When studying a subject such as American history one can easily define the importance it has in schools. Not only is it an amazingly interesting subject, it also outlines our future. History easily aids in predicting the future, and most importantly, allows us to look at the past 100 or so years, as a whole and not year by year. This is an advantage in learning our mistakes and making sure history doesn't repeat itself. American history is very important in schools because it shows students what...

  • Review For Instance Of Tytler's Roman History
    1,173 words
    SS 1. The influence of Niebuhr. WITH the eighteenth century, or, more precisely, in its concluding decade, the last two of its three great British historians had passed away; and it was as if, beneath the shadow of the imposing names of Hume, Robertson and Gibbon, no growth of rival dignity and splendour could venture to rear its head. During the ensuing years of long-sustained national effort, few minds cared to concentrate themselves upon a close study of past public life. Yet, when this perio...
  • Japanese Atrocities In China
    1,526 words
    The Rape of Nanking The more one tries to accurately understand the general events of a vast subject, like the second world war, the further one must back up from individual incidences and focus on a larger picture. The acts of depravity committed by soldiers during war do not give a complete understanding of the origins of any war. The Rape of Nanking is a picture of one aspect of the Japanese occupation of Northern China which depicts the horrors of war. Iris Chang is not trying to give a comp...
  • French And Indian War
    527 words
    History has fascinated me since the eighth grade. This is when we started to learn the history of the United States. That year was only about the early ages of the United States. Some of the topics we went over were from the very beginning when Christopher Columbus crossed the Atlantic Ocean, the French and Indian war, the Revolutionary war, and through the signing of the Declaration of Independence. The main topic that really interests me interests me is World War two. World War two interests m...
  • Today's World And History
    2,665 words
    History is a broad subject. In fact, it takes up so much time, since the beginning of humanity until the present. Defined in Longman's Dictionary, history is 'all things that happened in the past, especially in the political, social, or economic development of a nation' (Longman's 498). History explains why are things the way they are today, as history adds specific events, inventions or ideas that make a transformation, major or minor. History is almost unlimited, but what it contributes to our...
