According to Document C, “There comes a soldier, his bare feet are seen thro’ his worn out shoes, his legs nearly naked from the tattered remains of an only pair of stockings.” This shows that the soldiers barely have clothes. How can someone in the army continue to get stronger and fight more if they barely have clothes in the freezing temperatures of winter? Also, according to Document C, “I can’t endure it-Why are we went here to starve and freeze.” This shows that the camp lacks in both food and clothes which causes the soldiers to freeze and starve from hunger and lack of clothes to keep them warm. There is constantly a lack of food in the camp and when there is food is it very nasty tasting food. How can I know that after we are done at this camp I will get the supplies I need to survive if I didn’t get them now?
Because he did not take any food or water a lot of people thought he died of starvation. It was hard for him to hunt for food without any hunting gear and it was hard for him to find water. People thought that McCandless camr across a plant and it so happened to be toxic. Thats not what killed him krakuar says, “McCandless simoly had the misfortune to eat moldy seeds”(194). McCandless did not ask to die, it was just an accident, he knew nothing about which seeds where good and which where
He wanted to live life on the edge. Alaska is a very unforgiving place, it's a place where if you do not know what your doing then it will kill you. Chris messed up big time by going out there with no experience or advice from anyone. If Chris made one mistake it was going out to the Fairbanks bus on the stampede trail in Alaska without anything to help him or even to help him call for help. Even though many people come up to that trail, the weather is so inconsistent and unpredictable in Alaska there was no way to tell if he would ever get any help or see
The Jungle exposed the horrific work conditions, the poor food quality, and the deceitfulness of the business owners. Working in Packingtown, Chicago was a nightmare because 99% of the jobs were very deleterious. Finding jobs were very scarce and there were not a lot of jobs that were great, so people had to take anything they could get. These jobs had no safety precautions or safety rules; employees got seriously injured daily and death would happen occasionally as an effect of on the job accidents. Some of the jobs were just detrimental to the employees’ health even without the accidents.
On page 52 Henry Drummond said ““I understand what Bert’s going through. It’s the loneliest feeling in the world - to find yourself standing up when everybody else is sitting down...Walking down an empty street, listening to the sound of your own footsteps.” This quote means that it’s hard to be alone, standing up when everyone is against you. You’re lonely and cautious of all of your surroundings, hearing your own footsteps and you think it’s someone following you. Henry Drummond used this quote because the whole town hated Cates at this point. No one in the town besides his girlfriend.
Jamestown and Plymouth both struggled from hunger and disease In Jamestown the gold was not apparent and agriculture was not their lifestyle. The settlers ran out of food, they turned to eating horses, dogs and eventually cannibalism. In Plymouth it was not as severe, but arriving in Winter would prove fatal for many. As the temperature gets colder the food got scarcer. Many Puritans were too hungry to work, so only the strong built homes.
Two days after their journey on Tuesday, April 4, 1865, Lee’s army finally makes it to Amelia Court House, but little do the know, there was no food and Grant and his army were “racing to block Lee’s path” (35). The only other option is a walk “to the city of Danville” (44). That same day, Lincoln had found out that the city of Richmond was wiped away by the city’s own people. When Lincoln arrived to the city of Richmond, the slaves that had escaped flocked to him and viewed him as the hero although he had “never fought in battle” (40). Although he had not fought in the battle, they cheered for his arrival and was happy to see him in their town, where they never thought he would show
One reason a soldier would quit Valley Forge is the lack of food. The lack of food is a dreadful hardship the soldiers have to deal with. This hardship brings about not just hunger but many other factors. When you are hungry from the lack of food, you are weak and because you are weak you cannot fight well or deal with simple problems well. This effects basicly the whole war in a way.
The Jamestown colonists didn’t bring enough food. This led to starvation which killed a lot of people. Some of the most important occupations that they needed to survive, they either only had one person to do the job or none. The drought was a very big problem too. Because there was no rain there was no water, meaning dehydration.
As I peer through the thick smoke, reminding myself why I chose to come in the first place, I see a half dead man on the floor- begging for water. We don’t have enough food or clothes. There are very few of us left to fight against the redcoats. Even though on some days we are cheerful, we are starving and freezing. I am wondering if I should re-enlist or go back home.
Another reason why people might think Lacks faced more adversity is because she was poor and faced racial discrimination. Although she did face adversity in these situations it does not compare to having to walk through a frozen tundra without food and in constant danger of becoming a human popsicle. Who would you say faced more adversity a women who only had to die to face adversity, or a man who walked aimlessly in the antarctic without food or water and was in constant danger of
My final and third reason is the bad weather and poor living conditions. There was always cold weather and never a bright sunshine, you never had good clothes to keep you warm for the weather many people didn 't even have shoes.They said some people when they walked around in the snow, barefoot their feet cracked and there were bloody footprints everywhere. They didn 't have the best quartering either all they had was a simple, tiny, log cabin with no air conditioner or ventilation. It was always smoky like in them and probably as cold as it was outside. My final thoughts on staying or leaving are simple, I 'm leaving, no matter what were down in numbers, people are getting sick and dying, the food is running out and I 'm starving.
At night, we slept almost naked and the temperature was thirty below. We were collecting corpses by the budreds every day"(Wiesel 70). Many things can contribute to your health being good or bad. People in the concentration camps didnt get any water which lead to dyhydration and hydration is deadly. They slept almost every night in temperatures below thirty degrees, they also slept naked with no blankets.
Things have become so atrocious that George Washington had to ask the Congressional Committee for more money. I doubt they have any to give, for they are more focused on the bigger picture, rather than a few deteriorated soldiers (Doc B). Dr.Waldo wrote in his journal, “A general cry thro’ the camp this evening among the soldiers, “No meat! No meat!” -The distant vales echoed back the melancholy sound- “No meat! No meat!” This tells how us soldiers have been starving for quite a while now, and most of us are done dealing with the hardships.
It has been a rumor saying that the Union went to the city looking for shoes but although there was a shoe factory they didn 't go for that they went for food. This three day battle was horrible, the two best armies going to battle was not going to be a pretty sight. Thankyou to all those people that have lost their lives, another battle won and another battle closer to be done with this dreadful and disgusting war. Thanks to you our flag still flies
