The play follows the story of a traveling salesman, Willy Loman, and his last 24 hours alive before his death. It follows his life and has many flashbacks where Willy is remembering his family and is eager to find where he went wrong in life to be going through this mid life crisis of having to be distant from his family as well as financial woes. This play was written through the late 1940s and during that time period it was the end of the second world war and so not only America, but the whole world was looking for a new era and fresh start. Willy and his family lived in New York, which was the city that was the most popular place to live in.

The Women of the American Revolution played many roles. I believe women were a vital part in how the war played out. In chapter three the author, Carol Berkin, focuses on how the lives of women change as the war breaks out. Women were left at home to run things such as their businesses, farms, and to protect their children while their husbands went off to war. There were shortages of food and goods which had an effect on everyone. “While men faced the enemy, women faced the challenge of managing…
Sports play a critical role in American society. Sports unit the population and the team name unites the team, the fans and the city. Some names and mascots have been deemed offensive to Native American tribes because they can be seen as racially motivated or as stereotypes. However, these names are preserving Native American culture and honoring them. Certain schools and tribes have agreed to keep the Native American mascot in return for scholarships for members of the tribes. Native Americans…
"All men are created equal and have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," (Thomas Jefferson, In the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776).
The American Revolutionary War is probably the greatest underdog story to ever happen in history.

Many things led to the assassination of Lincoln; most people were upset with him because he wanted to end slavery, and gain back the states that seceded, which required the civil war.

President Lincoln served as president through the entire civil war and was essential to getting all the states joined back together and be united. On April 9, 1865 at…
I think that the ‘pens’ played a more crucial role in the American Revolution to gain independence. With the help of Patrick Henry, Thomas Paine, and Thomas Jefferson, these three men did many things to win independence from the British. They motivated people to fight in the war, showed that independence is best for all the colonies, and officially declared the United States of America independent.
“Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” is a famous speech spoken by Patrick Henry to the Virginia…

What role did slaves play in the American Revolution? They played a big role in the American Revolution for several reasons. The southern states were apposed to the abolishment of slave trade and slavery. This one of the major reason for the escalation of the war. Slaves were very helpful during the American Revolution. During this time period slaves really had to work to keep everything going and make sure everyone had what they needed. Slaves really got a lot done.
