Many men traveling with Eliezer had died from hypothermia along the way. They were freezing and tired. They had nothing to eat so they ate snow. If someone fell on the side of the road, they would be killed by an SS officer. The men walked for miles and miles and soon some just laid on the side of the road.
Throughout the duration of Crisis No. 1., Paine knew how to appeal to the colonists in just the right way, and used that to his advantage. Paine played a crucial role in persuading the colonists to go to war with Britain; and some might even say that the gaining of America’s independence would not have happened without him. Thomas Paine knew that America not only needed their independence, but deserved it as well. “Not a place upon earth might be so happy as America”
D. Martin Luther King has shaped America into something we today know as normal but things in the past they would look at us like were crazy. Dr. Martin Luther Kings “i have a dream” speech is one of the most influential peices of writting ever written. it inspired people back then to stand for what they belive in. Anf today for our generations it shows us to be brave and do stuff for our country and be patriotic. Dr. king had many mediums he could have used, but same of the main ones we know today , are television, paper, recording/ audio.
George Washington was indispensable in launching the U.S government. Although many opposed his political views at the time, Washington's leadership capabilities were unquestionable after his victory in the American Revolution. Our victory over Great Britain would have been doubtful if not for Washington and his judgement. Before becoming president, Washington led in drafting the Constitution, which is the foundation of America. When he became president, Washington believed in unity and a strong central power.
The time at Valley Forge for Soldiers was dreadful and I could say the same for myself. It 's the winter of 1777 two year in the Revolution and things are not look good for General George Washington at Valley Forge. People are dying left and right of sickness like smallpox the cold is getting to some of us. Some soldiers are leaving to go home to their family even going as far to run away from their duties. The question I keep asking myself is, should I go or stay with the rest of my group?
Many soldier left due to the lack of food, clothes, shoes, and equipment while other soldiers deserted not for the lack of supplies but to the opposition the Confederate policies and principles (1). However, the major cause of desertion was homesickness and to once again be with their families back home. Many men left the army after they became aware of the hardships and danger encountered by their families back home. Soldiers also deserted in an attempt to alleviate the hardships endured by their families and communities. Enlistment in the army kept men away from their homes for extended periods and destroyed the economic foundation of semi-subsistent mountain families.
The winter here in valley forge is quite harsh. There is severe wind and lots of cold,heavy snow, and many of the men here don 't have enough shirts, shoes, and stockings. At least half the army here are unable to fight due to lack of clothes. During the night, these men are forced to stay warm besides a fire or else they will most definitely freeze to death. Often we can track a soldier 's path by their bloody footprints they leave from walking barefoot in the snow.
Also because I need to get in touch with my friends again and have a party. I have decided to not re-enlist for three reasons which are there are lots of diseases and I could get sick, I don 't want to die, and my family needs me. I want to go home because there are lots of sicknesses and i could get sick and possibly die. Some people have been staying because the revolutionary army needs more soldiers to fight and I can understand that but, I would still go home to see and help my family. Before you think that I am being selfish remember our conditions no food, no clean water, living off of fire cake (flour mixed with water cooked over an open flame), no clothes, no shoes, just wearing rags.
In the picture on Document B it shows a dead horse, a man going insane, and another man being helped from the ground after he fell over.. In Document B it says, “George Washington presenting Congressional Committee to soldiers at Valley Forge.” People were probably jealous of the congressman and many of them were overworked this caused them to get sick or die. Because of Because of illness, harsh conditions, and overworking and jealousy I would not stay at Valley Forge. That's like saying you would rather stay outside in the zombie apocalypse than inside a safe haven. You’d rather die than be alive.
As the hunger began to overcome us, and the Scottish wind blew colder than ever, we began to lose faith in Charles Stuart. Our Bonnie Prince had failed us, and we were only just beginning to realize that. He had failed us from the beginning, but our blind faith, and our fervent patriotism had filled our stomachs and lit the campfires that we warmed ourselves by. It was the night before Culloden, when my clansmen, Graham Mackenzie, grabbed me by my tartan and pulled me away from the light of the fires. It was dark, but I could still see the desperate look in his eyes as he clutched me.
