Sherman and his men destroyed the food stores the people of Georgia had saved for the winter months, leaving a path of scorched-earth and hungry civilians. The Geneva Convention lists this as a war crime, “Intentionally using starvation of civilians as a method of warfare by depriving them of objects indispensable to their survival, including willfully impeding relief supplies as provided for under the Geneva Conventions;”. The carnage and destruction left by Sherman and his men left a scar that took decades for Georgia to recover from. The willful destruction of food storages, and the following starvation of civilians are clear examples of war crimes. It is now established that Sherman’s actions do constitute a war crime, but
The priests were still collecting themselves when they passed by the ruins of houses and heard screams for help. Sadly, “because of the fire it was too late to help”(Hersey 28).

The Columbian Exchange occurred when Columbus arrived in the new world and disease, culture, crops, and animals were traded. This swap caused the great biological exchange. When the Spanish and later English came over to the new world along with crops and animals they also brought disease. Europeans, living among many diseases, had built immunity to the ailment, but since the natives had never been exposed to the illnesses they had no immunity and the disease quickly spread. The Europeans, unintentionally, started an epidemic that would spread throughout the Americas and single handedly kill millions of Natives.

While Alcott and the rest of the hospital staff could do nothing for the man’s physical condition, Alcott soon realized her dear John simply needed a shoulder to lean on and find comfort in as he lived his last days in trials of great pain (Alcott 2006, page 40). Miss Alcott directly states, “I was the poor substitute for mother, wife, or sister, and in his eyes no stranger, but a friend” (Alcott 2006, page 40). Alcott’s account here reveals how desperate these injured soldiers were for companionship and the comforts of home. It shows today’s and future generations the great homesickness and sacrifice both the soldiers and those caring for them faced during the Civil War. Miss Alcott effectively paints this image through the sharing of her experience with this young blacksmith named

During the thirteenth century, a disease known as the Black Death spread from Asia to Europe at an alarming speed. It travelled through the trade routes, in the form of infected fleas carried from town to town on rats causing catastrophic loses of population . The Black Death consisted of two forms of the disease; the pneumonic plague, and the bubonic plague . Since it was unknown as to what caused the disease at the time, their responses to the plague’s outbreak were almost entirely futile. Since religion was a big factor in nearly everybody’s lives, the records of the Black Death that we do have are heavily influenced by religion, and as such, their views strongly swayed things like treatments and medicine that were used against the plague.
Completely unknown to the “New World,” this illness killed the majority of the local population and was one of the main reasons why the Aztec and Inca empires fell. The early settlers introduced the disease to the native population, which then led to a decline. This disease had the power to decimate entire groups of people and organizations to collapse. The effects of smallpox were devastating and noticeable and led to the fist examples of biological warfare during the Fresh-Indian War. The commander of the British forces suggested using smallpox deliberately to diminish the opposing
It was especially prevalent in the warm, humid coastlands from Georgia to Maryland, where the climate suited mosquitoes and there were plenty of people (and other mammals) to bite. The British planned to send their army to The South to win them over so they could gain a bit more control of the war but what they didn’t expect were the mosquitos who were waiting for prey. The South had a lot of plantations so during the summer time it was a perfect breeding habitat for the hungry mosquitos so when the British arrived, it was time for them to feed. The English were
