As I said, what they possibly though were witchcraft back then could be something treatable by now. Unlike in 1690’s, they didn’t have proof to back their hypothesis that it was bewitching. But now that the reason behind the said incidents were already established and proved wrong by people who studied what might have happened back then. People might still believe witchcraft does exist in present time solely because they have no idea that it might just be an illness that they had no idea about. That the reaction of people around toward something can affect greatly on how things can be
It a very big reason that so many colonists died. Ivor Noel Hume, says “Though Francis West was able to load his small ship with grain, the success involved some harsh and cruel dealing by cutting off two of the Salvages heads and other extremities.” (Hume 61) So not only did they not have enough food, but they had to cut off two people’s heads to load it. There was also not enough food for all of the colonists. Quoting Dennis B. Blanton, she says “The island is not situated at a point of great natural food abundance. Fish are present in local streams but only in the spring and early summer.”(55)This was a big problem because in the winter they would not have any food.
The Industrial Revolution brought down the prices of crops produced by farmers, this meant that farmers were not making enough money to pay off their debts. This increasing problem was slowly digging farmers into a hole with what seemed to be no escape. To add on to their everlasting money problems, middlemen and railroad companies were price gouging the farmers. This meant, the companies were asking farmers to pay prices which had been far higher than the actual value of the products needed for the farmers to raise crops. Companies did this, because they knew that farmers could not buy their goods from other businesses due to the fact that there were not any others in sight.
There were no famers on the ship list ( Smith). Without farmers, the colonist could not grow crops and so they starved. On the list, there were some men without known jobs. A few off the unknown men may have known a little about farming, but most likely not enough. Droughts were also a problem.
Because of this, they had fewer people that could be soldiers. That 1/3rd, however, were used to farm and harvest crops. Lastly, the Confederate States had a lot of forests, and I mean a lot. With all of those trees, they could barely build any railroads needed
During 1607-1611, early Jamestown colonists died to many reasons like starvation, occupations, and drought. Colonists did not have many resources to live a long life. That is why they died so fast through 1607-1611. Colonists died because they tried to find a new settlement for more land so they can have more resources and for a stronger defense, but instead they got attacked and there was not a lot of food there to feed them all. Colonists died by attacks by Indians.
Unknown to many of the Native Americans at the time of their capture, they were leaving their home behind forever as well as their livelihoods. When General Scott and his men came and arrived to force people out of their homes, many people “did not have blankets and many of them had been driven from home barefooted”(Burnett). At the time of their capture, they were not given any information, which made their journey very brutal considering many of them did not have the proper protection from the harsh weather. As they started on their long journey “many of the children rose to their feet and waved their little hands good-by to their mountain homes, knowing they were leaving them forever”(Burnett). The people that were left in the tribe at the time did not sign up to leave their homes, which demonstrates how powerless they were over the invasion.
They had inspectors at the factories to check the animals and make sure they did not have an illness or disease, but most of the inspectors did not do their jobs right. Since the inspectors did not do their job right some of the animals, that went through the process of becoming packaged meat, had diseases or viruses that no one knew about. Eventually, this meat ended up in a grocery store where anyone could buy it. So, essentially someone would have been eating diseased meat that could have been also spoiled. This led to many illnesses for working men/women in general, because most of the “working class” could not afford more high class meat, so they dealt with the diseased and spoiled meat, which often led to the people getting
Many Christians believe that the first sin, caused by Eve, is why women have pregnancy pains, why men have to labor, and why people have to die, with no eternal life. The new founding’s made by scientist and philosophers thought that there could be other “realistic” reasons on why things like such happened. The Enlightenment Era was revolutionary because the people were finally finding their voices. Instead of basing their day to day lives off of religion, they grew a curiosity for intellect. Certain people who were Deist believed that there was a God and that he created all life, but He was not involved in every little thing that transpired in their daily operations.
Is the Earth Flat? Over centuries, people have debated whether or not our planet is flat. But now, with the advancements of science and technology, people still choose to believe and create groups or “societies” claiming the Earth is flat. The flat Earth idea is false due to the use of science, common sense and an individual 's own opinion. Time after time, science and technology have proven that we live on a spherical planet.
