My Brother Jack - Influences From The 1930s And 1940s - 1,063 words
Contrast the effect that the cultural influences of Australian society in the 1930s and 1940s had upon the development of both Davy and Jack Meredith. To grow up during the years when there was war and depression would have been hard, but to have on top of this, all the cultural expectations of the time, and an abusive father, would have been too terrible to tell for most. George Johnston portrays this time in his novel My Brother Jack, through the eyes of Davy Meredith, a young boy, (who in turn is portrayed unmistakably as a young Johnston), who develops into a young man. The cultural influences of this era shaped the men that both the young boy and his older brother, Jack, developed into. ...

George Washington - 1,067 words
Born February 22, 1732, in Westmoreland County, he was the first son of his father Augustine's second marriage; his mother was the former Mary Ball of Epping Forest.

That year Lord Fairfax dispatched him with a party that spent a month surveying Fairfax lands in the still-wild Shenandoah. In the expedition, he began to appreciate the ...

Chapter 1: To Kill a Mockingbird begins, "When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow ... When enough years had gone by to enable us to look back on them, we sometimes discussed the events leading to his accident.

He said it began the summer Dill came to us, when Dill first gave us the idea of making Boo Radley come out" (9).

Atticus is also a very neat person, (as seen on page ...
