    James Knox Polk, a candidate of the Democratic Party in 1844, became the US president between 1845 and1849; however, he remains largely forgotten today, in the popular US imagination, because memories concerning his presidency had been overcome by memories of the most famous presidents like Abraham Lincoln. Remembrance of Polk as the 11th U.S president can be more despised than loved by many, because, as a leader, he resorted to expand the US territory by all means. His presidency deserves scrutiny, since he oversaw an era of intense internal agreement in the nation that led to the outbreak of the Civil War in the 19th century. He served a one-term presidency, and his predecessor was John Tyler.…

    The seventh president of the United States of America was Andrew Jackson. He was known as the “common person,” because he was from a poor family. At age 13, he was arrested by the British for being a rebel messenger. As he got older, he became a self-educated lawyer. He is well known for fighting in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815. Today, Jackson’s face can be seen on the twenty dollar bill. President Jackson shouldn’t be on the twenty dollar bill because he did not favor the National Bank, he was cruel to the Native Americans, and he was a big hypocrite.…

    William Penn was a holy man, a do-gooder by all means, who in 1681, was granted land in the New World, and set out to commence his “Religious Experiment”, with his Quaker brethren. Penn had a vision for his own utopia and would end up investing all of his assets in the newly found colony which is now Pennsylvania. Much of his money as well as other investors’ went to the process of actually acquiring the land which was one of the most crucial objectives in Penn’s plan. Because William Penn was a religious man, and because the land he acquired was already partially settled by native tribes, the financial capital needed to execute a smooth and peaceful transaction was quite enormous for the time.…

    As I researched Carl Sandburg, I began to find that there were truly many sides to Carl Sandburg. First, he was a poet whose Chicago Poems brought him fame and recognition. He is often associated with the "Chicago Literary Renaissance," which took place in the 1910s and 1920s and included such authors as Theodore Dreiser and Edgar Lee Masters. However, Sandburg never believed he was an author for one place alone and actually termed himself "The Eternal Hobo."…

    Robert Frost grew up in a state of turmoil. From his tumultuous childhood right up until his death, Frost was a character who could speak at Harvard and live on a farm in New Hampshire. He could dazzle the brightest students with poetic ingenious, but boil life down to, “It’s hard to get into this world and hard to get out of it. And what’s in between doesn’t make much sense. If that sounds pessimistic, let it stand” (Updike 535). Robert Frost’s poems “Mending Wall” and “The Road Not Taken” both exemplify the struggle between individual autonomy and the confines that society puts on it through deceivingly simple speech. Frost specifically deals with the idea that life is no more than a series of relationships and choices, which are never simple to discern.…
