before this war started the English used heavy cavalry it was favored in battle well instead Edward ordered his men to dis mount and fight on foot , so they were known as Hobelars they only used horses for transportation also having lighter armor mad it much easier  fight and maneuver a round and you can hid easier .

King Edward III of England sailed his army across the channel and the English crushed the French fleet and won a major battle the battle was called the battle of Sluys . Six years later Edward III led an invasion across the channel captured Caen in one whole day. Philip came out to face the English and the English won a great battle at the battle of Crecy and in follow up the English captured the french city of Calais was a french port with the English owning it they could have their troops there in France. in 1438 the black death swept across England the war was put on hold for several years . it started up again when Edward’s son was wen he was at the forefront for England ,and France has a new king John II .

Edward III and his son , and Edward the black prince were both falling in health . when the English once again got back on there feet and and took the battle field but the only thing England controlled was Calais in France . wile there was no peace in England , England put up with little resistance during this stag of war . it was 1415 that king Henry V decided to sailed from England to France to resume the war . He had a very good major victory at Harfleur but he decided to go back to Calais without an more battles along the way . well the French had something else on there mind so the met him at the battle of Agincourt . the battle of Agincourt was very small muddy field and it was between two woods the size of the field gave England an advantage since they had a weaker army at that time while the French had heavy armor and they were on horses so they  were wade down in the mud , which the English were much lighter and the English was able to gain the upper hand and win a major battle the battle ended with 6,000 Frenchmen killed and about 400 English killed Henry  retook much of Normandy , including Caen and again became the duke of Normandy . in 1420 Henry married the princess Catherine . yet the English was not able to claim the French throne a hundred years.

The Titanic and American Entertainment

For this essay I will be going through who made up basket ball and the Olympics and foot ball and what people did for entertainment. Also I will tell you how and when the titanic went down.

First is American entertainment. One of the reasons whey Entertainment succeeded in America is,  with the machines that were speeding up production in factories it gives men more free time.  Are first thing on the list of entertainment is baseball. Some of baseballs rules were written by Alexander Cartwright. The form of Baseball in America date back to the 1800’s, but the first real team was in 1869 called the Red stockings. The most famous baseball player was Babe Ruth, he played from 1914 to 1935 and set some records. Next is football, it was created by Walter Camp, though the football games were not really played in till  1880’s. The first real bowl was played in the year of  1902 as the Rose bowl. Also this sport was not popular in till 1859. To show how much people in this sport got injured is they had to change some things in the game by adding some protective equipment so this sport is a little dangerous. Are next popular game that came into existence was in 1891 by a man named James Naismith. The reason why this man came up with this game was to be less injuries than football. How it started was with throwing a ball into a peach baskets that was on top of a poll. down blow is a picture of a basket ball game in the 1800’s. 

Players shooting into a closed-bottom peach basket in an outdoor game of basketball, 1892.

Are next thing is the Olympics. The Olympics were made by the Greeks but the Greeks got taken over then they were able to be free and decided in the 1800’s to revive the Olympics. So they had the Olympics held in 1870 and 1875. These Olympic games were a big hit, so they form a international Olympics.

Even though sports are every popular Motion pictures are even more popular.  Some of the first Motion picture was short films made by Thomas Edison’s Kinetograph in the year of 1890’s. By the time the 1900’s came along a lot of people started to try making short motion pictures them selves. The first susces was a short film called the great train Robbery which was released in 1903.

Last is the Titanic, the titanic was started to be built in 1909 and was finished in 1911. how big it was it was measure 882 feet in length and 92.5 feet at their broadest point. The Titanic set sail from Southampton, England, on April 10, 1912. The ship stopped at Cherbourg, France, Queenstown (now known as Cobh) and, Ireland,  then the ship set sail for New York with 2,240 passengers and crew. Well the tragedy happened Four days out, at about 11:30 p.m. on April 14. A lookout saw a Iceberg dead ahead coming out of a slight haze, the warning bell and  they telephoned the bridge. Then the  engines were quickly reversed and the ship was turned sharply, the berg seemed to graze along the side of the ship, making a 300 foot hole below the ships water line. Well the ship sank and there were only about 705 survivors that were picked up by the Cunard’s Carpathia. There were some more sad news almost all of the men died with the sinking ship that was about 1,500 people the died.

The Industrial Age in America

In this essay I will be telling you of Nikola Tesla, Henry Ford, J.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie,and what they did and how they became the business man that they were.

first is Andrew Carnegie, he was born on November 25, 1835, in Dunfermline, Scotland. He came to America at 13 years old in 1848, and he work several different jobs as he was there . The main job that help him gain the experience for being a business man  was working with the railroad with Thomas Scott, he was one of the top officials in the railroad. Carnegie left the railroad in 1865 and made a business called the Keystone bridge company. By the next decade, most of Carnegie time was used for the steel industry. By the year of 1889 Carnegie steel was among the largest steel company in the world. There is one bad thing that happened in this steel corporation it was in 188. This was when they tried to lower the wages at Carnegie steel but there was a strike. They even had to bring in a small little army to stop the fight. They still held Carnegie responsible for what happened. Well in  1901 Carnegie sold his steel company, and spent the rest of his life giving out money for buildings. Also Carnegie was the one who took over the steel industry.

Second is John D. Rockefeller, he was born July 8, 1839, in Richford, New York. When the time of the oil industry came around to Pennsylvania, Rockefeller got into it. Around the yearly 1880’s Rockefeller had almost dominated the oil industry. The oil company was worth about 55 million dollars. In the year of 1882 Rockefeller organized standard oils trust. In 1895 Rockefeller retired from working day after day in standard oil. So Rockefeller was the one who changed and took over the oil industry.

 

Third is J.P. Morgan, he was born on April 17, 1837, in Hartford, Connecticut, also he was the son of a banker. He went into the family business, then after he got out of his fathers business he stared his own banking company in 1871 and it was called as  J.P. Morgan & Co. In October 1907, Morgan balled the United states treasury, just this shows how much power he gained. J.P. Morgan was the one to take over the banking industry.

Forth is Henry Ford, he was born on July 30, 1863, on his family’s farm in Wayne County, near Dearborn, Michigan. He left home at age 16 to take an apprenticeship so  he could become a  machinist in Detroit. After a few try’s to build a car and a company he finaly did it in 1903 he established a company called the Ford Motor company and introduced the Model T in October of 1908. So Henry Ford was the one to take over the vehicle industry.

The 5th person is Nikola Tesla, he was born on July 10, 1856, in what is now Smiljan, Croatia. well over time Tesla  invented several things and one of them was the AC system, this invention caught George Westinghouse, Business man and an American engineer’s attention. Because George wanted to find a way of how to get electricity from long distance. So in 1888 He purchased Tesla’s patents for $60,000 in cash and stock in the Westinghouse corporation. Witch this corporation took over direct current, and it took over the lighting industry.

In this essay I will tell you what I chose to do my taxes out of this list, by hand, by software, or a professional tax prepare. I will also tell you Is tax refund advances offered by professional tax preparers a smart thing to do, and I will tell you what the interest rate is on this type of loan.

The one that I chose in the list is paying some one to do your tax return for you, but you also want to find a good tax preparer. The reason I chose this is 1. do you know all the laws, the person that you pay to do your tax returns is paid to know the laws.2. Since the person that you are paying knows the laws, then he can get more money for you.

Next should you Have you tax return be in advance? Me what I have seen and heard I would say no, I would just wait for it to arrive. The Reason why  would not like my money in advance is because they charge you interest because you are  technically having a loan.  The amount they charge on your Advanced tax return is if you tax return is over 2,500 dollars is the amount charged is about 35.7 present interest. Thank you for Reading, and if there is any thing  wrong with the essay please feel free to tell me.

Immigration station and Ellis Island

Have you ever heard of the time when people started immigrating to America? First to allow them access they would have gone through a Immigration station, making sure that they would not spread disease. And second  they would have them sign there name in a record book. In this essay I will tell you of some history of the famous Ellis Island and the Immigration station that was built.

Through the year of 1630-1770  Ellis island was just about 2-3 acres in the Hudson River. It was owned by Samuel Ellis, he purchased it so that he could build a tavern.  Well in 1794 Ellis dies and the new York state bought the island from his family for 10,000. The Government did use the island for the war of 1812.

Now on to the construction of the immigration station. So just be for they made the station, in 1875 the United States did not allow prostitutes and criminals to enter into the country. The first immigration station was opened on January 1, 1892. And in one year of opening it had nearly 450,000 immigrants go through the immigration station.

Now on to some of the things that happened. So on June 15, 1897,tragedy one of the towers cot on fire and made the roof collapses, good thing no one was killed, bad news all the records that were in the building were destroyed. This time when rebuilding the Immigration station they wanted it to be fire proof, It reopened in December. From the year of 1903-1910 they added some more land by reusing the dirt from making the underground subways, the amount of space they had went from 3 acres to 27 acres. Just when things really started getting busy at the station WW1 started in 1911-1919 and the station almost was stopped being used. So during the war in 1917, Ellis island was used for the U.S. as Hospital and a station for PW (stands for Prisoner of war). The immigration station was starting to be left to Abandonment, and by 1932 the great depression hit. And by November, 1954, all 33 buildings were officially closed ,on the count that it was not needed any more. In the year of 1965, the President Lyndon B. Johnson made it to were Ellis Island is now under  the jurisdiction of the National Park Service, becoming a part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument. And so it reopened to every one in 1976, having hour-long guided tours going through some of the main buildings, and during the first year 50,000 people visit the island.

Pluto

have you wondered if there is a missing planet beyond Neptune? There is a planet beyond Neptune and its name is Pluto. In this essay I will be telling you when it was discover and by whom.

Here is some more news about the planet Pluto, it was discover in  February 18, 1930 by  Clyde Tombaugh.  Creation.com says that”Percival Lowell (1855–1916), the founder of the observatory, believed in the existence of a ninth planet. He dubbed it Planet X and calculated that it would be six times more massive than Earth. He even specified its location. Lowell searched for the planet without success from 1906 until he died”. So Lowell was the first person to search for the planet called Pluto but he never found it.

Also Google say “In August 2006 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) downgraded the status of Pluto to that of “dwarf planet.” This means that from now on only the rocky worlds of the inner Solar System and the gas giants of the outer system will be designated as planets”. So now you can not say Pluto as a planet they have consider Pluto to be a dwarf planet. Thank you for reading and if there is any thing wrong with the essay please feel free to tell me. 

My business plan 2

Do you remember the last essay I wrote on”My Business Plan”? This essay I was going to tell you what type of business firm this would be.

well If you can still remember what the business was it was taking out trash for money. The type of business firm I would  first see the size of the business. Second I would see of the different type of forms there are LLC, Sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, etc. Third how many workers are there and are there needed for many. Well this trash business just needs one person, which keeps track of the money and does the jobs.

So from the information from above, I chose sole Proprietorship.  The reason I chose this firm is, 1. It has a single ownership.2. It has direct control over the firm.3. Unlimited liability.4. vast major of the firms in the US, but Generally very small. So the points above fit my business, the first point was that it was a single owner and the trash business only require one person to run the business. The last point  says that most of these firms in the US are usually very small and the trash business is very small, so that is why I chose sole Proprietorship. Thank you for reading and if there is any thing wrong with the essay please feel free to tell me.
