Lee relied on the foliage at Spotsylvania to provide cover for his men not realizing this would provide the Union with the element of surprise (Korda 692). Grant out thought Lee and cut off Lee’s retreat route to Richmond forcing Lee to fight on an undesired battlefield.…

    Daniel Leonard had a strong argument because he included that it must be painful to see what the British men may have been going through while they were getting harassed, that no one’s family should experience danger like the British men have went through. That persuades readers to feel emotionally for them. On the flip side, Edmund Burke has a great argument that there should be peace and only peace between the two, but continue the British’s role to be kept in governance. However, Thomas Paine stands strong for the Americans to protect their rights and fairness. The most compelling and convincing argument I find to be is Thomas Paine’s.…

    The fundamental basis of government is to be ruled by people and with moral actions and responsibility. When taken out of the equation, immoral actions occur, freedoms are suppressed, and nothing gets done. Howard constantly reminds us that we, the people, created the government: so why have we let it push us out? Human involvement is necessary for success, and each proposition is consistent in that statement. When coming to his conclusion and his closing notes, his argument stays strong with his call to action.…

It's important to be aware of your surroundings because there is danger everywhere.

My stomach tightened...I felt a moment of relief…(American Sniper pg.100).” Chris Kyle states his priorities would be “...God, Country, Family…”(Page 8), although god and his country are before family he still cared about his family (brother) and felt fear to find him dead.…

    In American Sniper, Chris Kyle was angry and wanted to serve his country as a result of the 9/11 attack. He joined the marines and became a sniper, one of the most well known ones in United States History. In 12 Strong, a special force team of 12 men were deployed to Afghanistan to be the first ones to respond to their 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers. Critic James Berardinelli stated, “Although the characters are all types, the performances are strong enough that we identify with them despite their lack of depth.” Meaning, that he thinks 12 Strong lacks in its ability to draw a connection with the audience. While both movies had similar plots, the movie American Sniper presented a more emotional and relatable storyline.…
