Almost all of the Jamestown colonists’ water mishaps was the unforgiving droughts they experienced. The droughts obviously impeded rainfall which retarded corn growth. Ultimately, the drought left colonists with little water and no food. Speaking of little water, Document A says tides played with the colonists a little. For example, the high tides would come in and make the freshwater from the
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. The environment the colonist chose to settle in wasn’t
Variety of factors contributed to lack of research. According to Document G, it explains there was poor hygiene during the time of the plague. Many people dragged corpses and piled them. The bodies were dumped on lands, which is not the proper method to dispose bodies. The priests thought they only had to bury one body, but found themselves with six, eight, or more.
And it was overall a terrible event that occurred in Oklahoma. Oklahoma was so terribly destroyed, it was an awful tragedy. Other information in this book, for example: Billie Jo being poor is accurate because when the Dust Bowl hit, it took out most farms and farmers’ jobs. This means that Billie Jo’s father lost his job as a farmer. And with no job, then that means no income, which resulted in being poor.
These diseases had a vast negative effect on the population of the Indigenous people of Australia, due to that they couldn’t even fight a common cold. Chickenpox produces a fever and a rash of itchy swollen red bumps which in some cases turn into blisters.
Prime Minister R.B. Bennett had not provided adequate funding for the camps(1). The inhabitants were fed nasty food and had bad living conditions (7). One male who spent time in the Canadian relief camps stated that he felt as if he was enslaved in the camps because he had nowhere to go and was essentially obligated to stay at the camp (2). The wages were poor and he hated the manner in which the camps were run.
In fact, this is exactly what Sandra L. Dahlberg described in her research on Richard Frethorne’s letter called "Doe Not Forget Me" when she stated “in the letters, Frethorne painted a dire portrait of his life in Virginia: he was hungry, he had insufficient clothing, and he lacked consistent access to shelter” (Dahlberg, 2012). That means that the people were not only immigrants they were poor also. The same can be said about the immigrants working in the tobacco fields today. However, the people was basically brought over either by involuntarily, forced or maybe kidnapped. They lived in little to no shelter.
For a lack of a better term, it was a complete and utter culture shock. I saw how they lived their every day lives, how they struggled to find food and water, how they basically had torn rags as clothes, and how they were diseased stricken. Their homes were nothing more then mud huts and one mattress for the whole family to sleep on. Children often could not go to school because their families did not have the money or they could not walk the distance to the nearest school. I found myself angry for multiple reasons.
My source claims that poverty is a big problem in certain countries, yet most people aren't doing anything about it, they're too focused on themselves. Banksy claims that society is selfish and ungrateful. Mondays have become a big thing to be mad about anywhere, society seems to hate waking up early and doing work, yet in other countries people are dying due to lack of clean food. An argument that is linked with Idols of the tribe is society feeling like nothing is enough. Society feels that having to do tasks is just plain boring and makes life bad.
