when you made this you included some very strong words about John A Macdonald. I also agree that he was a heavy drinker. Back then they didn't have much to drink so they drank alcohol or water or whatever you had to drink. In the movie we watched in class he was trying to win peoples votes by offering them alcohol so that sort of says something about his personality.
The words used in this word splash. They are all really descriptive, and accurate. Everything in this word splash is related to John A. Macdonald, and is on topic. It's very interesting that you also decided to put personal information on his life in there too. You can really get to know a bit about John A. as a person, instead of just a historical figure in Canadian history. Alcohol and being a heavy drinker seems to have a lot to do with Mr, Macdonald, and from what I saw from the movie we watched, I'd definitely say this is historically accurate. John A. tried to bribe people in the movie with alcohol, for more votes. To me, this shows a bit in how politics used to work back then. It hasn't changed much either, because we still try hard to get our way with bribery. Politics are not as honest as it is usually portrayed.
I thought the word splash you created is very well done and creative and I thought the words you used in this word splash where very descriptive and creative.
