The ships brought some supplies, but the ships had been sent to take goods back to England, goods that had not yet been created by the colonists. They might have survived if they had abandoned their original settlement and moved inland where food, water, and firewood were in ample supply. Of course, they did not know if the natives would remain friendly if they moved inland. And the fort they built on the "island" did offer some protection. So they did not move inland.
At some point, both settlements were involved with trading with Native Americans. An area where Plymouth were more successful was how they prevented casualties by befriending Native Americans. Although Jamestown and Plymouth were plagued by hunger, disease and environmental hazards Plymouth was triumphant because they overcame their setbacks. This proved that the English and Native Americans could live together in harmony. Although Jamestown had better success in creating a thriving economy, it 's ceased to exist in the 1700s because people had lost interest in it.
They had to learn how to plant these crops and how to help them grow and harvest them. This is no easy task, especially when they didn’t have much help and support at first from the indigenous people that lived there. The colonist struggled to build alliances with them, and therefore struggled to find
Before they conformed, Merry Mount did not succeed as a society and neither did the Puritan’s, but through a unity of the 2 it created a better society; neither pure conformity nor pure individualism can succeed in a society. Finally, the people of Merry Mount lose some of their freedom and individuality, but the merging of individualism and conformity leads to a better
However, many of the settlers focused a bit too much on the "find gold" part of their orders (being the most important part of course) because of this, few colonists focused on gathering food, leading to a lack of food for the colony to sustain itself. To combat this, Smith established a simple "tough love" policy, in simple terms, if you did not work, you did not eat. Smith also made trade agreements with the tribes under the leadership of Chief Powhatan. The colonists offered glass and metal goods to the Indians in exchange for food for the colony. Thanks to the actions of John Smith, things were looking great for the colony, however, "his (Smith's) strict leadership made enemies within and without the fort, and a mysterious gunpowder explosion badly injured him and sent him back to England in October 1609."
Vaccinations protect us and the people around us from harmful diseases, some of which can be fatal. In fact, most schools, camps, and colleges require you to have your immunizations up to date for admission. For those unfamiliar with the idea of how vaccinations work, there’s an easy explanation. A vaccination is a preparation of dead or weakened pathogens that stimulate an immune response after entering the body. This solution is much easier for the body to deal with than if you were to allow the strong, living pathogens into your body for your antibodies to fight off.
Now, however, the ideal of honor is “a lot more fluid,” with a possibility to change and “rebuild that honor” (Bishir). Although the process may be long and arduous, a person can slowly repair his reputation to a larger degree than previously possible by performing actions that contradict or counteract the offending incident. Because of this opportunity, a loss of honor is not as devastating as in Shakespeare’s time. One does not fall into nothingness if his reputation is compromised. This, however, does not mean honor no longer exists; people cannot go around doing whatever they please and expect to be forgiven easily.
They valued piety, courage, and industry. If they lacked piety, the Puritans would have also lacked the faith and trust required for them to believe they could be successful in this New World. Without courage, they might have been too scared to leave England in search of a new land where they wouldn 't have to face persecution for their beliefs. If they had not valued industry, they might not have worked hard enough to survive in the conditions they had to endure on their long journey. Bradford showed appreciation for these values, along with their generosity and fairness towards one another and the Native Americans, as he wrote about the Pilgrims.
They were in collaboration with the Army and they embraced the risk and opportunity of creating a flu vaccine, which ended up helping the world and solving the epidemic problem. Lastly, Salk and Francis nurtured and sustained the environment and community in which they live by doing everything for their neighbors and their country. Because of them, America became a better community and an easier place for people to nurture and sustain the environment. That is why Salk and Francis epitomize the Mid Pacific Learner
The communication would have eased trading, so that the natives would not be tricked into selling their land and belongings for cheap trinkets and alcohol. This would have eased tensions further down the road, when Americans wanted to spread west onto land owned by Native Americans and the Indians had learned not to trust the white man’s trades. It would have cooled the fires of war when Tecumseh gathered his army, or on the Little Bighorn as the Sioux rebelled against harsh reservation laws set by the government. Having a common language would have given the natives and the foreigners a basis from which to work at the start, without tricks or
I feel as if mostly it was revolutionary, but some points leave me unable to come to a consensus with the point of views. The revolution was the start of America after all, yet some people argue that it mostly did not change the colonist 's lives. As historian Howard Zinn says in his quote, the working citizens, whom were poor and white, were back where they used to be after the war, creating no devolopment in their lives whatsoever. Though a disappointment for the colonists, it was an improvement for the country that they lived in. This would lead to a better life style and more money in the long run.
The natives though didn’t appear to be altering the land, which meant they had no legal rights to it. Thus, settlers were granted the land by the crown, or through trade/buy with the Indians. Through granting of the land with no acknowledgement of prior ownership shows the disregard for the Natives, and the Europeans view of how the land should be used. In order to “improve” the land, much more agriculture and use of livestock would be introduced. With the Europeans introducing livestock to their land, it had crucial ecological consequences.
Also Jamestown had gigantic drought while they were there and with not enough water, there aren’t going to be very many crops for the colonist to eat. When they brought new people, they brought some grain with them. When they saw the amount it was clear that the grain would help but they wouldn’t last the winter.
This experiment may not give ideas on where they went, but it does inform people that they were suffering from their resources as stated before. Once the settlers realized it was taking White longer than expected to come back with supplies, they could have left to find an area with more pleasing
