Albert Einstein One of the greatest heroes of American(and international) science and culture in the past century has been German physicist Albert Einstein. Born in 1879, Einstein used his early years to educate himself and began to think up his own methods for solving his newly found inquiries into science and higher-level mathematics. In a short time during the beginning of the twentieth century, Einstein pulled together his research and incredible intellect for unprecedented gains in science and theory used throughout the world. One need not go far to view the incredible impact that innovative genius Albert Einstein has had upon the twentieth century. His impact stretches far beyond the reaches of physics and life in the early 1900's.
President Andrew Jackson's military command and his life were protected thanks to the support of 500 Cherokee allies at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend in 1814. It was Jackson who authorized the Indian Removal Act of 1830 following the endorsement of President James Monroe in his concluding address to Congress in 1825. Jackson, as president, endorsed an attitude that has carried on for many years among countless white migrants. Thomas Jefferson, who often quoted the Great Law of Peace of the Iroquois Confederacy as the model for the U.S. Constitution, had been supportive of the Indian Removal as early as 1802.

Fried and Tom Reigstad both suggest that Buffalo was a major point of transition for Clemens. Fried writes, “His Buffalo experience, scanted in most biographies, has significance because it was the final stage in a long campaign for an artistic existence free of financial worries and of the burdens of journalistic writing.” This suggestion—that his time in Buffalo inspired his development from humorist and journalist to the novelist who produced Huck Finn—intrigued me de... ... middle of paper ... ...287 _____________. 11 and 13 March 1871.Mark Twain’s Letters, vol. 4, 349-350.

History In 1855, miners discovered Gold in the Colville mines of northeastern Washington Territory. Newspapers such as the Oregonian began running daily advertisements to attract miners into the region.

He was the American frontiersman who was mythically responsible for developing the west. He would take his giant axe and clear hundreds of acres a day to make way for civilization on the frontier. By his side was his blue ox, which is said to be responsible for plowing the Grand Canyon and assisting with other western marvels. The Frontier is a prominent symbol of American culture. Although it intimidated the colonists and later Americans, it did not prevent us from spreading.
National parks are known as one of the greatest American ideas because they conserve American history and the legacy of our ancestors, preserve our nations natural beauty, and create an authentic American experience. The nature within the national parks has been around forever, but the history of our parks started with an idea put into action by President Theodore Roosevelt. During the Progressive Era, a period in time at the turn of the 19th century motivated by the need for social improvements, John Muir thought of the idea of the national park system. John Muir started with rough beginnings and by the time he was thirty years old he still hadn’t found his place in the world. In fear of being drafted in the Civil War, he fled to Canada and by the time he returned the American industry was completely different.
This paper will explain why Lewis and Clark are two of the greatest explorers in American history. Some of the distinguishing factors of these explorers and the three main points in this paper are their exploration of the uncharted west by way of the Missouri river, the many discoveries made along the way, and the effect they had on the westward expansion of the United States. In January 1803, Thomas Jefferson sent a confidential message to Congress asking for approval and funding of the exploration of the Westward part of the continent and was granted 2500-dollar budget for the expedition. Captain Meriwether Lewis was chosen as the expeditions’ leader because of his previous experience with the west and because he was an experienced Army officer. William Clark another Army officer was chosen as Lewis’s co-captain in the expedition.
