“Do great leaders make history? Or does history make great leaders?” Which do you believe?
I believe that great leaders make history because a person that takes charge and does something so memorable, can change history. For example, George Washington. He lead his troops to an impossible victory. When Washington crossed the Delaware River and defeated the Hessians, many people were surprised. Almost everybody thought it was the impossible, but Washington thought otherwise. If he failed to cross the river and didn’t conquer the Hessians, it wouldn’t be such great and memorable history. Since he was a great leader and was successful with such a difficult journey, he made great history. History didn’t make him.
