The Battle of Bull Run

Mr. Etheridge

2 The American Civil War (1861-1865) was a major war between the states of the United States, “The Union”, led by President Abraham Lincoln, who opposed the expansion of slavery and rejected any right to secession and the eleven Southern slave states that declared their secession and formed the Confederate States of America, led by President Jefferson Davis. (Carnes, Garraty, pg. 392) The First Battle of Bull Run (named after the closest body of water), also known as the First Battle of Manassas (named after the closest town), took place on July 21, 1861, and was the first major land battle of the American Civil War. Unseasoned Union Army troops under Brigadier General Irvin McDowell advanced against the Confederate Army under Brigadier General Joseph E. Johnston and P.G.T Beauregard at Manassas, Virginia, and despite early successes, were routed and forced to retreat back to Washington, D.C. (R.M Johnston) On the morning of July 21, divisions under David Hunter and Samuel P. Heintzelman crossed Sudley Springs and swept back the Confederate left flank. All that stood in the path of the 6,000 Union soldiers were Confederate Colonel Nathan Evans and his reduced brigade of 900 men. Evans had been informed of the Union flanking movement and had hastily led most of his men from their position fronting the Stone Brigade to a new location on the slopes of Matthews Hill, a low rise to the northwest of his previous position. Sounds of the fighting quickly drew other brigade commanders to Evans aid. (Battles of Bull Run) Evan received reinforcements from two brigades under General Barnard Bee and Colonel Francis S. Bartow, but just that quickly, the Confederate line slowly crumbled, then

Red Bull Proposal

...Red Bull History: Chaleo Yoovidhya, the self-made Thai billionaire founded T.C. Pharmaceuticals. In the 1970s, it was first introduced in Thailand under brand called Krating Daeng, or Red Bull in English. It was popular among Thai truck drivers and laborers. Chaleo then co-founded a company in 1984 with an Austrian partner who helped turn Red Bull into a global brand. The creation of Red Bull was inspired by the tonic drinks category of Japan and a drink in Thailand called Krating Daeng. Dietrich Mateschitz, an Austrian entrepreneur, developed the Red Bull Energy Drink brand. Mateschitz was the international marketing director for Blendax, a toothpaste company, when he visited Thailand in 1982 and discovered that Krating Daeng helped to cure his jet lag. Between 1984 and 1987, Mateschitz worked with TCBG Pharmaceutical (a Blendax licensee) to adapt a flavor and marketing strategy for the European market. At the same time Mateschitz and Chaleo Yoovidhya founded Red Bull GmbH; each investing $500,000 of savings and taking a stake in the new company. Chaleo and Dietrich each held a 49% share of the new company. They gave the remaining 2% to Chaleo's son Chalerm, but it was agreed that Mateschitz would run the company. The product was launched in 1987 in Austria, in a carbonated format. In 1992 the product expanded to international markets: Hungary and Slovenia. It entered the United States via California in 1997[12] and the Middle East in 2000. In 2008, Forbes......

Red Bull

...Red Bull's Innovative Marketing: Transforming a Humdrum Product into a Happening Brand Abstract: The Red Bull energy drink was launched in Austria in 1987, by Dietrich Mateschitz. He claimed to have experienced the invigorating properties of a popular Thai energy drink, Krating Daeng, on a trip to Thailand. Realizing that a similar product could have good potential in Western markets, Mateschitz obtained the license to manufacture a carbonated version of Krating Daeng from its Thai owners. Obtaining permission to sell Red Bull in Europe was not easy, as it contained several ingredients whose effects on the human body were untested However, permissions were eventually obtained, and Red Bull became exceptionally successful in all the markets in which it was launched. It was generally acknowledged that Red Bull's success was the product of the company's innovative marketing efforts. This case study discusses the marketing strategy adopted by Red Bull GmbH, including the company's effective employment of buzz marketing in new markets, and its sponsorship of sporting activities, especially extreme alternative sports, to enhance its image. The case also talks about Red Bull's target markets, and its pricing and differentiation strategies. It includes a section on the various controversies surrounding Red Bull, and the effects of these on its brand image. The competitive situation in the energy drinks market and Red Bull's position vis-à-vis competitors, is also discussed. The......

To Run, or Not to Run

...To run, or not to run--that is the question: Whether 'tis easier to race And face the harsh pains of a race Or to stay lazy And, by not moving, avoid pain To run, to hit the adrenaline rush- No more – and by running to say I face The early morning preparations for the events That each race day holds ‘Tis a situation I do not wish to face To run, to race- To fall perhaps too hard. Ay there’s the problem, For in running what events may come about When we are hiding from the finish line Must make us stop and think. That’s the idea That makes disaster of running For who really wants to face the 7 a.m. sun The first start, The runners’ obnoxious cheeriness, The disappointment in Gatorade, The team’s early practices, The overly chipper song of the early bird, And the cold looks That other runners send in my direction When they too may run On weekends free from tribulations? What would heed the team’s early call To sprint and jog through the first hours of the day But that the horror of something may be missed while running That unknown events that have occurred which The gossips discuss While we stand in a confused daze Wishing we had chosen a different sport Instead of seeking those futile adrenaline rushes? Thus the chance of missing out does make runners of us all And thus the bliss of running Is tainted by eye opening thoughts of lost news And peaceful moments of calmness and scenery With this regard their paths are cut......

Battle of Little Big Horn

...Abstract On June 25, 1876, the 7th Cavalry Regiment led by LTC George Armstrong Custer, went into the valley of the Little Bighorn. Unknowingly they were walking into the largest number of Indian warriors the world has ever seen. By the end of the day 210 soldiers would lay dead including Custer himself. The Battle of the Little Bighorn has become the most discussed and most popular battle of the Indian wars. It marked the greatest, and last, battle the American Indians would have over the Untied States Army. It was also the most devastating loss the U.S. Army would have in the Westward expansion of the Untied States. The news stunned the nation and led to an endless debate about the facts, strategy and tactics of the battle that continues to the his day. INTRODUCTION The Battle of Little Bighorn also known as Custer’s Last Stand. Took place in June 1876, in the little Bighorn Valley of Southeast Montana. The number of Sioux and Cheyenne warriors that the 7th Cavalry Regiment faced was approximately 4,500. The battle showed how the failure to use the Principals of War, Mass and Synchronization, helped cause the most devasting defeat that the U.S. Army ever received during the Indian Wars. And how the use of Mass and Concentration could affect a conflict. The primary resources used Custer’s Last Stand by Peter Panzeri and Custer’s Last Campaign by John S. Gray. STRATEGIC SETTING The road to war. In the 1860’s Sioux tribes roamed the......

Sitting Bull

...honorable tribe, and Sitting Bull helped to keep this title for them throughout his life, and even after his death. He exemplifies the characteristics most admired within their culture. He helped to shape the future of Native American culture, even though it did not turn out to be the type of life that any of them would have wanted. No matter how the Lakota tribe felt towards sitting bull at the end of his time, he definitely made a positive impact during his life. Sitting Bull was especially famous for his bravery. He brought courage and triumph to everything he did, from religious gatherings to battles. Part of the reason why Sitting Bull was so popular among the Sioux has to deal with his battle strategies. The Sioux tribes participate in open combat during their battles, which involves hand to hand interactions, showing off their courage and bravery. Cowardice is not appreciated at all during battle, or in any aspect of Sioux life, which is why Sitting Bull stood out as a leader to both his friends and his enemies. He fought in battle with courage and honor, some things that were often found to lack in their enemies. At the beginning of his time as a Lakota warrior, Sitting Bull was a very respectable man. His first time going into battle, he helped to chase after a runaway enemy, killing him before he could kill another man. This was a big deal to himself as well as his tribe because normally young members of the tribe only watch during battle, and he took it upon......

3rd Battle of Bull Run

Since their inception in 1999, Jet Blue experienced a level of success unprecedented in the airline industry. Build on the foundation of “bringing humanity back to air travel. Its founder David Neeleman focused on exceptional customer service, extended leg room and free satellite TV feeds in every seat. By 2005, JetBlue ranked highest among all airlines. The customer experience in turn resulted in profits for an impressive 16 consecutive quarters. On February 14, 2007, JetBlue made the executive decision to stay true to their values of a customer experience by keep flights schedules on time even though weather conditions were not conducive to flying. Unfortunately, this strategy did not go as intended and resulted in extremely irate customers and a potential loss of $45 million between cancelled flights and flight vouchers to impacted customers. So what went wrong? JetBlue was not experienced and prepared in multiple crisis management strategies to deal with the influx of customer questions and concerns. This lead to minimal communication to their customers as they would not be able to reach any of the reservation agents......

Case 9-1: Disney’s America Theme Park: the Third Battle of Bull Run

...actually be able to pull this project off. Perhaps foreseeing that many historians have different views over several important events that marked the history of their rich nation would have helped decrease the large amount of negativity that Disney received from many. Also, in the PEC campaign, the organization proposed 32 other prominent sites that the Disney America project could be built. Perhaps Disney should have studied the locations better, and anticipated more than one location before it decided on the Prince William County as the final location. Seeing that many believed that the physical location that the theme park would be built on was part of America’s history, and building on top of that would destroy the nations most important battles in its history. What advice would you give Eisner? I personally think that Eisner never foresaw so much negative in relation to this theme park. Seeing as he personally helped develop this promising idea, all this negative publicity and setbacks had affected him greatly. I believe that Eisner does not want to end the Disney America project because of all the bad publicity, but looking ahead this time, the idea of the countless lawsuits that Disney would face was very overwhelming. In addition to the constant change in observation to how many historical events took place, as this would upset a great deal of people including, politicians, historians, governors, and lovers of history and their country. It seems like the idea......

Michael Jordan Arrives at the Bulls pg. 3-4 4. The Beginning of a Championship pg.5-8 5. Reference Page Pg. 1 Introducing the Chicago Bulls The National Basketball League is where dreams become a reality for some athletes. This organization is referred to by most people as the “NBA”. There are 30 teams in the NBA and only a few that have a winning track record. The Chicago Bulls has not only won 6 Championships, but they are the leading NBA team right now with a record of 62-20 with 62 wins and only 20 losses. The history of this team has had its share of wins and losses but there foundation is strong and growing. This team has had a huge impact on the sports here in Chicago, IL. The beginning of the Chicago Bulls Era began in 1966. This was the year this organization was founded and began. When the team began playing they were not strong enough to have a full team so they began as an expansion team. Expansion teams are teams that pick up players that are not currently on regular teams. The Chicago Bulls were the first team to ever have an expansion team and believe it or not the team did so good they made it to the playoffs. Pg. 2 During the 1970-1971 basketball seasons, the Bulls finally began to win. They struggled a lot and they finally got a......

Case 9-1: Disney’s America Theme Park: the Third Battle of Bull Run

...What are the key issues that Eisner must consider in this situation from a government relations perspective? The key issues include the location of Eisner’s envisioned historical theme park. The state of Virginia is deeply filled with many events marked in American history such as the homes of four of the first five U.S. presidents, in addition to being the site of more than two-dozen civil war battlefields. Another key issue was the commotion and traffic that this theme park would create. As visitors will travel from many places to visit Disney America, Disney would have to predict when the highway will be most at traffic while putting in mind that many residents of Virginia use this highway, knowing it is already very crowded most of the time. Another major side effect of this traffic would be the heavily increased air pollution. When Disney confirmed that they would build the park in Prince William County, the biggest key issue of all arose: opposition. Many people were alarmed and concerned that this project would destroy many of America’s national marks of history and would be replaced by a theme park full of amusement. Many people did not have faith that Disney would be able to portray a full and clear, understandable image of American History, seeing as their other parks specialize in amusement and entertainment. Another economic key issue that many anti-Disney groups were doubting, was the number of jobs Disney promised to give. One campaign that took place in hope...

Major Battle of the Civil War

...Major Battles of the Civil War Throughout the Civil War, there were a total of about 10,500 battles, military actions, and engagements between the North and South(from April 1861 to May 1865). Almost 700,000 troops died in the wide battleground of twenty-three different states. The strong disagreements about slavery, the Southern Secession, and Abraham Lincoln's presidency had contributed to the start of the Civil War, and numerous battles fought between the North’s Union and the South’s Confederacy. At Lincoln's Inaugural Address, he denounced the secession and claimed all federal property in the South, mostly in South Carolina, as the Union's (majorly Fort Sumter). However, South Carolina, as one of the first states to separate, wanted to seize the fort in order to show their seriousness. Major Robert Anderson took Lincoln's order and defended Fort Sumter at Charleston Harbor with 68 Union troops on April 11, 1861. The South sent General P.T.G. Beauregard to seize the fort and demanded Anderson to surrender. When he refused, the canon fired, and for thirty-four hours, the two sides fought violently. The Battle of Fort Sumter ended with Anderson's surrender, and the the federal authority was outraged. This resulted in the calling of 75,000 volunteers to suppress the rebellion and four more states joining the Confederacy. The Civil War began and did not end until another four years of deadly, bloody fighting. After the incident in Fort Sumter, Union General Winfield......

3 Civil Battles

...spotted flying the United States flag, but the hopes that were raised by this were false: the ships were in The battle died away after nightfall, but picked up again the following morning. Again, the barracks caught fire, and the flagstaff was shot away in early afternoon, the flag having to be raised instead on a hastily put together staff on the ramparts. At this point, Louis Wigfall, a former U.S. senator and one of Beauregard’s aides, traveled to the fort, without his commander’s knowledge, to find out whether the fall of the flag was in fact a sign of surrender. Even though this was not Anderson’s idea initially, negotiations between the two men did result in a surrender, and the flag was lowered and replaced with a white sheet. The Battle of Bull Run-This was the first major land battle of the Civil War. General McDowell conceived a fairly elaborate plan to attack the Confederate army commanded by his former West Point classmate, General P.G.T. Beauregard. For his part, Beauregard also had a complex plan. In the end, the plans of both generals fell apart, and actions by individual commanders and small units of soldiers determined the outcome. In the early phase of the battle the Union Army seemed to be beating the disorganized Confederates, but the rebel army managed to rally. General Thomas J. Jackson’s brigade of Virginians helped turn the tide of the battle, and Jackson that day received the everlasting nickname “Stonewall” Jackson. Counterattacks by Confederates......

Battle of Bull Run

...Weaponry Since many of the soldiers who participated in the first battle of Bull Run were state volunteers, they were armed with whatever the state government provided them. Many soldiers were issued smooth bore weapons at the beginning of the war. As it progressed, more and more soldiers were armed with rifled weapons, being more accurate and far superior to smooth bore rifles. For the past 150 years, the soldier’s weapon of choice was the .69 caliber smooth bore musket. These rifles were inaccurate and did not have an effective killing range (100-200 yards). A lot of luck went into the soldier’s marksmanship. In the days prior, Napoleonic tactics were commonplace on the battlefield. In this fashion, soldiers lined up side by side and fired a volley of lead into the enemy’s direction, each rank taking turns to reload while the other fired. This tactic was effective in its own right, causing high casualties to both sides. During the civil war however, good soldiers were hard to find, and advancements in technology allowed them to use tactics and weaponry that helped keep soldiers alive on the battlefield. Advancements in the weaponry used during the First battle of the Bull Run made a significant difference in many aspects of the battle. Rifles used in the battle looked identical to the ones previously used, but with one key change: rifling. Rifled weapons have groves cut inside the barrel that cause the projectile to spin as it leaves the muzzle of the weapon. This barrel......
