    ... nd the new superpower status of the United States (Lafeber 314). Lodge grouped Wilson and Jefferson together in their mutual willingness to keep peace at all hazards (Widenor 203). While Lodge may have been correct in his argument that Wilson needed to back up American neutrality with some use of force, Wilsons interpretation of American neutrality leading up to World War I kept America from war as long as possible without compromising American national interests of trade and security. The rivalry between the two politicians escalated with Wilsons introduction of his 14 Points for Peace after World War I. As Wilson negotiated with other leaders of the Entente Powers after the war, the P ...

    Chapter 9- Effective Participation (Wilson 253-255) What: I will go through each of the five categories under effective participation and tell what I observed on our group for each one. First- I think each member of our group was committed to do their best as time and resources allowed. Each contributed to the group in meetings and in presentations. Keith often was the leader behind our group presentations. I would say that he always was but I'm not sure that my memory is accurate. He came up with the ideas for the presentations that we ended up using, he coordinated them, made sure that everyone knew what they were doing and that they were going to do their part and be there on the day of t ...

  • Lodge And Wilson - 1,033 words
    Lodge and Wilson Political rivalries define American government. The dual-party system by nature sets up partisan rivalries between members of all three branches of our government rivalries that have at times pushed our government to progress and at other times slowed it to a grinding halt.

  • Puddnhead Wilson - 720 words
    Pudd'nhead Wilson The book, Puddnhead Wilson, seems like a modern day soap opera. It has one main theme with other stories and subplots that revolve around it. With all these stories, Mark Twain must of had many influences to help him write this wonderful book. Before we begin to discuss that, let me give you a little background on his book. Contrary to the title Puddnhead Wilson, the main character, to me, seems to be Roxanas son Valet de Chambers/Tom Driscoll. Why the reason for the two names? Well, let me explain. Roxy is 1/16 part black, but that still makes here black and a slave. She belonged to Percy Driscoll, who had son named Tom. Tom was born around the same time that Roxys son, Ch ...

    Woodrow Wilson The turn of century was an important time for pre-WWI America. National and international affairs were in full swing, just as ever. America was trying hard to remain with its Isolationism, yet could in no way thoroughly do so. Yet with this isolationistic stance, that was deteriorating daily, much emphasis was put onto national affairs of the United States by the government. Woodrow Wilson, the third president of this new century, also had great concern with the national affairs of the U.S. Elected in 1912, Wilson strongly believed in a government more concerned about human rights than property rights (Comptons). Through these strong idealistic views, Wilson was in fact the pr ...
