  • Women In The Civil War Essay

    Women in the Civil War Women have dealt with many inconveniences over the years, but the Civil War is one of the greatest of them.

  • Benjamin Franklin's Life, And Hard Work

    Benjamin Franklin believed that every person can become more wealthy, healthy, and wise through hard work and self discipline. I believe in his belief because it doesn’t matter how difficult or easy it is to accomplish a goal; at the end of the day, what counts is the satisfaction of the work and experience a person puts into it. Franklin didn’t favor luck or opportunities, but instead became successful through hard work. Franklin was many things such as an author, inventor, scientist, and a…

  • Analysis Of Professor Chang's Fateful Ties

    historians present America’s awe of China as preoccupation, what American officials really value are wealth, opportunities and the idea of following Manifest Destiny.
