The Colonial army lead by George Washington set up camp in Valley Forge to keep an eye on the British. It is winter and the colonial army is ill-prepared. I think that you should leave Valley Forge. One source of information is on the sick and death rate at Valley Forge (Doc A). About 25% of the people who went to Valley Forge died of diseases. About 50% was was too sick to fight or do anything. My second piece of evidence is a picture of a painting at Valley Forge (Doc B). This picture shows that the patriots were poorly equipped evident by the lack of shoes and good clothing. Also, it shows others leaving. My third and most important piece of evidence is a diary kept by Dr. Waldo a surgeon posted at Valley Forge (Doc C). In his diary, he
From 1865 onward, Native American culture was greatly changed by the westward expansion of the united states. Government action effectively destroyed native culture. The US was not justified in its ruthless westward expansion because of the harm dealt to the native people and the change in the American economy.
The Jamestown settlement was one of the harshest experiences for many of the people on that voyage and it was led by Bartholomew Gosnold. If one family member owned a big section of land the family would often fight over the claim on the land. The settlers lost all of their clean water supply and that caused them to have to drink salt water that carried diseases and illness. Many settlers could not handle the harsh weather. They did not know how to dress for the weather and could not find food. A lot of them died during this time. Lots of the people could not find food so that led them to starve. Some of the settlers even dug up graves to eat the bodies of the dead people. The natives began to help the settlers by giving them food. The people
Starvation is a severe deficiency in caloric energy intake. It is the most extreme form of malnutrition. In humans, prolonged starvation can cause permanent organ damage and eventually, death. During the Holocaust, thousands of people died from starvation and the malnutrition it causes. Normally, the effects of starvation are bad enough, not including the many other atrocities that took place during the Holocaust, and eventually, starvation became one of those many atrocities.
As the American Revolution was in full swing, soldiers were being recruited and fighting for their freedom from the British. However, the fight for freedom took more than just fighting skills. The men fighting had to endure the harsh conditions and the little help and supplies they received. The American army went to Valley Forge in hopes of spying on the British army. However, the winter at Valley Forge was harsh with the cold seeping into their poorly built shelters and the little amount of supplies they had was not enough to keep everyone alive and healthy. Much of the time, soldiers were dying not from the honor of fighting, but by choosing to remain fighting after their enlistment and dying from illnesses. The soldiers at Valley Forge
In times of fear and hysteria in the U.S. it is mass chaos and it only gets worse and worse. During the time of both the witch-hunt eras, whether for communist or actual witches, they prove to have many similarities between them. Both of these times were full of confusion and lying which lead to the temporary downfall of the authority at that time. Joseph McCarthy proved to be a factor in this time and add on to the chaos that was America. Arthur Miller wrote about these times in a book called The Crucible, based on the witch trial era.
Looking back to the 1500s, the English had been situating settlements in Ireland and used a familiar model in the New World. The early years of Jamestown were difficult for the settlers. The land was hot, humid, and mosquito-infested, and the settlers were mostly aristocrats and artisans that spent much of their time searching for gold. Those who didn’t die on the trip, died once they arrived from diseases and starvation. In 1607, about 3 ships-each holding more than 100 English passengers, arrived on the Chesapeake Bay region of Virginia. Settlers were excited, given that they would be the first permanent colony in the New World. Most settlers were in search for riches and others in search of a new home. Settlers ranged from the ages of 17 to 35 years old. The first years for the English settlers were harsh and devastating. By 1611, two-thirds of the settlement had died and all hope was lost for the settlers. The 3 main circumstances that caused a majority of English colonists at Jamestown to lose their lives were the environment, the social and religious conflicts with the Natives, and the lack of survival skills.
Both Progressive Era reformers and the federal government sought to bring about reform at the national level. Examples of such reforms they wanted to make include: trust-busting, consumer safety, restrictions on child labour, civil rights, and women’s suffrage. Overall, the Progressive Era reformers and the federal government were effective in their efforts from 1900 to 1920, however there were some limitations.
Corporate greedy and corrupt politicians were specific problems and injustices that were present in American life during the late 1800s and early 1900s however these were addressed during the progressive era with laws and regulations.
In the founding of Jamestown settlers would waste their time on finding gold and sliver rather than planting crops or repairing the
The people in Jamestown argued issues even though they went through a time in 1609 through 160 called the starving times! They ate dead people/ They also ate boots belts, leather, and other gross stuff. Of course they did eat berries, nuts and fish when available. Jamestown was near a swamp. The swamp has mosquitos. Which the mosquitoes had diseases and sadly the diseases killed people,so basicly the swamp killed people. These are some of the hardships, that killed many of the people in
The French and Indian war (1754-63) resulted in political, economic and ideological relations between British and its American colonies.
The british were a force to reckon with, they were the top of the food chain, raining for one-hundred years, destroying powerful nations. A group of farmers, a brewer, and some people who wanted change didn’t seem like they would be any match to the British. A group of people fighting for a cause they believe in is stronger than people fighting for a king. The British brought their own demise by putting tighter and tighter control that led to a revolution in colonial America.
When Louisiana was first settled in 1699 by French immigrants, the colonies of the newly formed state were in an impoverished, unprofitable position. The colonies' destitution was due to the lack of resources provided by their new land and government, as well as France's political and economic negligence. However, after long years of poverty, the colony would one day turn a profit by trading their naturally occurring precious metals for paper money and land.
The Jews were forced to move to the ghettos because the Nazis wanted to limit Jews freedom (Blohm Holocaust Camps 10). The Nazi convinced people that the Jews were infectious and this was one of their favorite tactics to use (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 9). They used that tactic to say that they were moving Jews into “quarantine” to protect the public from disease (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 9). Unfortunately, the Jews were only moved to ghettos for the short-term solution of extermination (Altman The Holocaust Ghettos 13).
