The "Surrender Speech"

Alliteration: They still love its valleys, its murmuring rivers, its magnificent mountains, sequestered vales and verdant lined lakes and bays and ever yearn in tender fond affection over the lonely hearted living and often return from the happy hunting ground visiting, guide console, and comfort them.

Rhetorical Questions; There is not death only a change of worlds.

Repetition: Let him be quiet and deal kindly with my people for the dead are not powerless. Dead, did I say? There is no death only a change of worlds.

Pathos: "I am tired; my heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever."
