While Grand knew he was not able to do much to help combat the plague, he still persisted and handled any task that was given to him. Another example of Grand sacrificing his time for others is when he calls Rieux because of Cottard, his neighbor. When Grand finds suspicious writing on a door, he decides to go in and check if everything is okay. When he finds Cottard hanging himself, he helps him get down. In his call to Rieux, Grand says “‘Thanks, Doctor, for remembering me.

Joshua Chamberlain, a scholar, had a strong hanker to go into the military despite his family’s wishes for his attendance in college. He went to Maine and was assigned a top-notch role in the Maine 20th Regiment, but declined because he wanted to see the elephant from Col. Adelbert Ames. Chamberlain fought in many battles in Fredericksburg like the battle in Mary Height, but couldn’t fight in the battle of Chancellorsville because of a smallpox outbreak in the army. Despite of the fact that the soldiers were peaked which was the reason why the soldiers missed the battle, small pox did help Chamberlain because Alderbert made brigades out of his army and Chamberlain was a head of one of the brigades of the 20th Regiment. On July 20,
Some people wanted nothing to do with the war and wanted peace. Other people, known as Patriots, were tired of the British being under control of the city and wanted to fight for their rights. The other group of people called Loyalists liked being under control of the British. Loyalists thought the British had a strong army. Abigail Adams, who lived only a few miles from where the Battle had took place, had been woken up to the sound of bombs the day of Battle of Bunker Hill.
In Lexington 1774 the war began. Washington led his army with Commander Sir William Howe. “The shot heard around the world” had begun this fight. Washington’s army with men very untrained, they lacked food and ammunition but George Washington still somehow found the strength and confidence to show them that they really had a fighting chance. This Army won very few battles but was still had confidence they could win this one or die trying.
The three main reasons colonists died was environmental issues, lack of settler skills, and relations with the Powhatans. The biggest reason colonists died was because of settler skills. Most people that went to America were gentleman or didn’t have an occupation (Smith). This evidence shows that a lot of people did not have any skills to do anything. “English colonists dug shallow wells to supply themselves with sources of water” (Blanton).
During the first three years of the American Revolutionary war, the largest military encounters were in the north, focused on campaigns around the cities of Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. After the failed Saratoga Campaign in 1777 when the British attempted to gain military control of the Hudson River Valley, they largely abandoned their operations in the Middle Colonies and pursued a strategy of peace through subjugation in the Southern Colonies. This strategy failed as there were not as many Loyalists willing to fight as the British might have thought. Moreover, the Patriots use of more guerrilla warfare, with hit and run tactics which the British were not accustomed to. Finally, as the British chased the Americans through the countryside, they tended to take food, mainly from farmers, causing new enemies to be established.
However they were thousands of miles away from their supplies, and their leader they also had no allies to help them along the way. The Patriots had advantages that the British army lacked. The three most important reasons were the Patriots had a great leader, foreign allies and communication and supplies. The Patriot leader, George Washington was in battle with them so instead
First event is, The Revolutionary war it started April 19, 1775 - Oct. 1781. The war started because the Americans would not pay for the taxes for the seven years war that mainly benefited the Americans. The British payed for most of it during the war. Then they were going to put taxes on the Americans so they could get there money back but the Americans did not agree so they started war. It also did not help that they did not have a government or an army.
Throughout unit one we learned about the conflicts the English settlers faced as they came and settled in the new land. The first group of settlers knew very little about their voyage or what to expect when they arrived. The settlers had to deal conflict within their selves, the natives, the land, and the other settlers. Through the European pursuit to the new land they encountered a tremendous amount of conflict that lead to the loss of many men, leaving others fearful and confused, and causing conflict between the earlier settlers. It is hard to prepare for a trip when you know little about what is about to take place, but that is exactly what the English settlers did.
In 1786, Daniel Shays, like other farmers, was with his inability to pay high debts. So, out of anger, formed a group of farmers who were frustrated too. The national government didn’t have a right or means to raise any army, so the governor of Massachusett formed an army on his own. New laws were drafted, which offered welcome relief to all of the debtors. But in the end, the rebellion helped highlight issues with the articles of confederation.
The Civil war was a very devastating event in history that was a test on the families who had loved ones both in the war and living far away from the rest of their family. People on the home front wanted to help but felt like there was not anything they could do. Also, the addition of the draft into the war it caused more of a burden and fear of losing their loved ones. However, with the devastation of the war people seemed to do the only thing they knew how to do and that was to go to church. There seemed to be a lot more church going than before the war.
Our men are afraid and have started to desert the camp we have set up here at Valley Forge. So if I stay, it might encourage the other soldiers to re-enlist too. Congress hasn’t been any help either. They don’t even trust General Washington anymore, but he’s one of the few Generals who was actually
