Thomas Cobb When Abraham Lincoln was elected president in 1860, Thomas Cobb realized that the South had suffered a major loss in power. Since the Republican party controlled the executive, there was no way the South could have any say in the government. All their opinions could be easily disregarded by the North; their neglect of the Fugitive Slave Law was a perfect example of this. Cobb also understood that the Northernerąs sudden patriotism for the Union was quite out of place. Only fifty-fou

These rights represent what is important to me and what I believe in. Freedom of speech is an imp

This device of symbolism is portrayed well in the novel, especially through the scarlet letter A. The A is the best example because of the changes in the meaning throughout the novel. In the beginning of the novel, the scarlet letter A is viewed as a symbol of sin. The middle of the novel is a transition period, where the scar

Throughout most of my school years, before attending MCTC, I had never experienced inter-racial schooling. I went to a small high school with about twenty minority students. These students were not outcasts they were treated as any other non- minority student. Therefore, I had little experience with minorities in a non-minority school. After the speech that was given by Michael Jefferson, I was more informed on the effects of stereotyping of minority students in a non-minority school. Stereotyp

Heroism was not an invention of the Greeks. Yet, through the first hundreds years of their civilization, the Greek literature has already given birth to highly polished and complex long epics that revolved around heroes. These literature works gave many possibilities of definition of heroism. The Greeks illustrated heroism to obey the rules laid down by the gods and goddesses, and those who obey the rules would gain honor and fame. The Greeks regarded intelligence as one of the highest gifts th
