JOHN F. KENNEDY IN VIETNAM
JOHN F. KENNEDY IN VIETNAM There are many critical questions surrounding United States involvement in Vietnam. American entry to Vietnam was a series of many choices made by five successive presidents during these years of 1945-1975. The policies of John F. Kennedy during the years of 1961-1963 were ones of military action, diplomacy, and liberalism. Each of his decision was on its merits at the time the decision was made. The belief that Vietnam was a test of the Americas ability to defeat comm

In 1954, many barriers were broken that made this a year of success. One of the major achievements is the cure for Polio being discovered which saved many lives and made the disease extinct. Other successes include the revolution of music and the birth of Rock & Roll. Other achievements this year were the invention of the first 2-seated sports car, the corvette, and the beginning of the Sports Illustrated magazine. During this year, RCA also produced the first color television where families cou

Introduction The Allied invasion of France on June
Introduction The Allied invasion of France on June 6, 1944 is variously known as D-Day, the Longest Day, Cross-Channel Attack, and probably some others as well. It was the largest single military operation of World War II. Hence, the Normandy beaches are a must stop if you get anywhere close to France. The 50th anniversary celebration in 1994 generated a lot of hype. The recent movie Saving Private Ryan rekindled that interest. However, the landing always held a special niche going back to the e

Ludwig von Beethoven One of the greatest musical geniuses of all time didn’t even know his own birthday. Ludwig von Beethoven was born second in his family, behind Ludwig Maria, his older brother, who died very young. This loss may still have stung their parents. Their pain could have overshadowed the second Ludwig’s own early childhood. The brothers shared a name, Ludwig, which probably added to his confusion. A common mistake is the claim that Beethoven was born on December 17, 1770. This is a

Doesn’t it always seem as though rich and famous people are larger- than-life and virtually impossible to touch, almost as if they were a fantasy? In The Great Gatsby, set in two wealthy communities, East Egg and West Egg, Fitzgerald describes Gatsby as a Romantic, larger- than-life, figure by setting him apart from the common person. Fitzgerald sets Gatsby in a fantasy world that, based on illusion, is of his own making. Gatsby’s possessions start to this illusion. He lives in an extremely lavi

It did a good job of putting all the scenes in perspective, but there were some parts in the movie that were not necessary. They would always make out on the gallery for like seven hours just to say goodbye. Also when they showed the girls breasts, because they only showed them for like a third of a second, so why show them at all. When they showed Romeo’s ass, it was really forced to get into the movie, like

Miller wrote the play to parallel the situations in the mid-twentieth century.

The characters in this play are simple, common people. The accused are charged and convicted of a crime

The transition that these men under went from solider to ranch hand or cowboy, and the making of their legends through the media molded the way we per
