It allowed our founding fathers to preserve the fragile Nation through the decade of Revolution and left for its posterity the legacy of the most celebrated works of American history.

  • The Populist Persuasion - 818 words
    The Populist Persuasion : The Populist Persuasion Populism is a movement begun in the mid-1890s by farmers and other rural residents at the time. It quickly gained strength and has undergone many changes since then.

  • 12 Angry Men - 333 words
    12 Angry Men 12 Angry Men Last night I rented the latest version of "12 Angry Men". It starred Jack Lemmon and Tony Danza.

It was pretty slow and non-eventful with no action. I found it to be a very predictable movie, which made it a little difficult to pay attention to. I understand why this movie would pertain to a psychology class, and caught a lot of si ...
