Initial post
During this period a number of strong individuals emerged to shape the direction of the United States.
In your opinion who is one person that you would term a “hero” or a “villain” or a “little of both” in this week’s assignments?
Analyze and explain the role played by the person you picked and defend why you think the person is a hero, villain or a little of each. Use evidence to defend your point of view.

Make sure you give evidence from the Week 8 Module to back your conclusions.

Do not repeat the questions.
