The Patriots were feeling defeated after the first 2 years of war, and the makeshift Pennsylvania winter camp didn 't add to their spirits. Valley Forge was a tough time for the American Army, and many soldiers wanted to quit because of the hardships. If I were a soldier, I would have quit Valley Forge for a multitude of reasons. The living conditions were inadequate, there was a minimal amount of supplies, and illness and death was common in the camp. In essence, the cons of staying at Valley Forge outweighed the Pros.
The Battle of Vicksburg was one of the most crucial points in the Civil War. It helped Eradicate the Rebels/Confederacy once and for all. The Civil War was fought for over 4 years and it lasted from 1861-1865. It was one of the most horrific wars the world has ever known and witnessed. The Civil war was fought over the topic of slavery and the issues it presented, and the injustifications of slavery. The Civil War was one of the longest and hardest wars ever fought. The Siege of Vicksburg was won by Union General Ulysses S. Grant. The Confederate General in the Battle of Vicksburg was John C. Pemberton. Pemberton’s troops made him surrender to Grant because the troops were starving to death (literally) and so he surrendered on July 4th, 1863. This was a major day in history.
Holidays celebrate an area’s culture and/or the day(s) it commemorates with various festivities and traditions. In Theodore Geisel’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas, the light-hearted denizens of Who-Ville are preparing to celebrate Christmas. For the Whos, it is a time of fun and merryness, in which they sing and play with one another. This is a time of camaraderie and fellowship between everyone in the town. Apart from this is the antagonist, the Grinch, who dreads the holiday along with the singing, feasting, and other festive activities that the holiday inspires. As an outsider of the society, the Grinch doesn’t understand the celebration and resents it as a result, and it quite peeved by the inescapable uproar that it brings. Christmas
Tenement life in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s was very difficult, it could even be called somewhat dangerous. Tenements were usually very small living spaces that contained no more than 2 rooms. Most rooms had 2 or no windows at all, the buildings were also built very close together on narrow streets. Some tenements had little ventilation, there was no central heating or air conditioning so the tenements were very hot during the summer and very cold during the winter. Tenements were not the safest place for a person to live because living conditions were very poor.
She told the guards she needed to get flour, but she really was trying to find a way to warn George Washington. She couldn 't get caught but at least if she was caught her family would be safe. She was on her own. Her name was Lydia Barrington Darragh. She was born in 1729, the specific day was unknown, in Ireland. She lived in Philadelphia as an adult. Lydia was an average colonial woman until the British soldiers made their base across the street. She had light colored hair, blue eyes, and she looked neat and slender. She was loyal to her country and she didn 't let her religion stop her from helping others. Lydia was also part of the Monthly Meetings of Friends of Philadelphia in the Arch Street Meeting House.
Throughout my childhood growing up in Miami Fl, was an amazing experience, it’s unique variety of cultures spread through one city is absolutely mind blowing. Although there was one thing one my mind at all times. One thing I never experienced was living out west and getting away from the Miami life. Its kind of hard to believe someone would prefer living out west, in the middle of nowhere than along a beach shoreline. As a matter of fact, living out west had become one of my priorities when I was making my college decision. For some odd reason I have at all times wanted to be near a desert or spacious land unlike Miami and that’s why this picture really has an essential meaning to myself.
Often I hear the phrases “this state sucks or I can 't wait to move” but many don 't know exactly where they want to go. As for me when asked if I could live anywhere, Texas came across my mind instantly .
_ Are refugee camps over some population still camps? Or are they cities? Which population should be the limit?
New Orleans has been my home for the last twenty-four years. There is so much offered in New Orleans like delectable foods and diverse cultures. My grandmother was a very influential person in our community, and a very talented seamstress; people would come from all over the city to have her make their outfits. She would sew complicated costumes for parades, gorgeous gowns for balls, and Indian outfits for the spy-boys, flyboys, and big chiefs. The Indian costumes are my absolute favorite. I would sit, and watch her for hours, and if I was well behaved, she would let me hand stitch a few wampums on.
Valley Forge was a base winter camp located next to Pennsylvania. George Washington helped out and taught the soldiers how to use guns and fight battles. I am going to leave Valley Forge because the quality of this camp is horrible. (DOC A) There was a very high percentage of soldiers who died of illness because they did not cure any illnesses. Almost fifty percent of soldiers were sick, about 3,989 were sick with chickenpox and smallpox. (DOC D) Thomas Paine compares tyranny to hell. The camp was very cold and sometimes the soldiers didn't have shoes to wear. (DOC C) The huts at Valley Forge were very cold and dirty. There was very poor food, they had no meat and nothing to fill our stomachs. Valley Forge was a very poor quality camp and it
World War II brought great changes to the state of Arkansas. Arkansans faced great challenges both during and after the war.

More than 5,000 families in the United States, have sedulous relative fighting for our country’s freedom. Many of those families have not the slightest idea of what war is like, and all of its physical and mental effects. The author uses descriptive words to take the reader on a mental voyage. The soldier keeps a conversationalist tone and uses rhetorical strategies such as imagery and rhetorical questions to show how miserable he is living.
It is now May, 1778. The army is preparing to leave Valley Forge and renew hostilities with the British. The suffering we endured in Valley Forge was horrible. We spent the winter season starving, freezing, and dying of diseases. Thousands had no shoes and even clothes. Most had no blankets to keep warm and had to stay up all night to keep warm by the fire. You could see the tracks of blood from people's feet freezing to the ground. The camp had experienced a famine and we went without food for days. I am disappointed in the soldiers who decided to leave camp to go home. I mean, I can understand why they would want to leave. Especially since many had families to provide for, but I believe that this war is one all colonist should have fought
I was fortunate enough to complete a three-hundred-hour internship with Albion Fellows Bacon Center. Albion is a non-profit organization whose mission is to prevent domestic and sexual violence while striving to empower victims through advocacy, support services, education, and collaborative partnerships. The agency provides services 24 hours a day to the following eleven counties in southern Indiana: Crawford, Dubois, Gibson, Harrison, Orange, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh, and Warrick. The agency is named after a prominent Evansville woman who committed her life to improving living and working conditions for women, children, and the poor.
The Book Thief, directed by Brian Percival, is a film adaptation of a book by Mark Zusak centred around adolescent girl Liesel Meminger (Sophie Nelisse).

Percival uses skilfully chosen aural and visual elements as well as cinematic techniques such as lighting and camera angles to communicate and explore the central theme to the audience: the power of human spirit, especially when dealing with adversity.
