Their story is known to all of you. It is the story of the American man at arms. My estimate of him was formed on the battlefields many, many years ago, and has never changed. I regarded him then, as I regard him now, as one of the world's noblest figures; not only as one of the finest military characters, but also as one of the most stainless. His name and fame are the birthright of every American citizen. In his youth and strength, his love and loyalty, he gave all that mortality can give. He needs no eulogy from me, or from any other man. He has written his own history and written it in red on his enemy's breast. But when I think of his patience under adversity, of his courage under fire, and of his modesty in victory, I am filled with an emotion of admiration I cannot put into words. He belongs to history as furnishing one of the greatest examples of successful patriotism. He belongs to posterity as the instructor of future generations in the principles of liberty and freedom. He belongs to the present, to us, by his virtues and by his achievements. Always for them: Duty, Honor, Country................................................................................................................................................ "General Douglas MacArthur"

In the recruitment department. Lord Kitchener launched a famous propaganda campaign in the early stages of the war to boost army figures with his iconic finger pointing and saying, "I want you - Join your country's Army!" and in the first month 300, 000 signed up! This is an astonishing amount, and in the end a staggering 2 1/2 million joined - partly thanks to this hard-hitting piece of propaganda.

During active American involvement in World War II (1941-45), propaganda was used to increase support for the war and commitment to an Allied victory. At first, the government was reluctant to engage in propaganda campaigns as did the communists. But the alliance became user of propaganda for education of the civilians.

No because the soldiers did not fire their guns for any reason. The people there began to throw rocks, stones, and sticks at the soldiers, which in fact made them shoot in the first place.

Shakespeare's sonnets were first published in their entirety in this year. However, there is good reason to believe that Shakespeare was not responsible for the publication, not least of which is the fact that the dedication is not signed by Shakespeare, but by the publisher.

THE propaganda movement was a FAILURE because of various reasons. First and foremost, the leaders were ambitious and somewhat greedy. They did do some reforms but those reforms were only for their own interest. Another reason was the lack of fund to support the movement. Internal Conflicts was also present between propagandists Rizal and del Pillar which led to del Pillar's backing out from the movement. -JEFFERSON G. GEVA, AB Journalism IA BUCAL

John Hancock was the first to sign the Declaration of Independence. He was president of the Continental Congress.He used large bold script and signed under the text in the center of the page. He said the reason he signed it large was, "So fat George can read it without his spectacles." This is why, to this day, when you sign something it is called putting your John Hancock on it.What many people don't know is that there were two versions of the Declaration of Independence. John Hancock signed the first one on July 4, 1776. No other delegates signed that version.John Hancock signed the second version on approximately August 22, 1776. This is the version that most of the other delegates signed.
