Hello, my name is Alex Feuer and I’m a freshman who is a historian and am on the lacrosse team. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and I am looking forward to the rest of my time at Roanoke college. I find digital history to be crucial to understanding aspects of the past due to the accessibility and ease of use of digital platforms. Secondly, some events in history are best represented through video, or text found online containing primary and secondary sources.

these two-word clouds are derived from speeches that were given by president Aberham Lincon and President James Bucanan. Lincon is considered to be one of the best presidents in American history because of his will to retain the union and end slavery. Bucanan is considered to be one of the worst presidents in American history due to being pro slavery and creating an extreme divide that eventually led to the civil war. The economy was also bad under his watch among other things. Lincon in his speech focuses more on human rights and the country while James talks more about his ideals.
