In the early 1330s a contagious disease was going to spread all over Europe and it was going to kill many persons, not a lot of people would survive to it. This disease is called: Black Death. This illness have changed the population of Europe and its future, as a fact many are the consequences of the Black Death. Historians think that this plague started spreading from the arid plains of Central Asia, because by the mid-thirtheenth century Europe. In 1338-9 in the south of the Lake Balkash, more precisely in Issyk Kul in a community of Nestorian Christian the first three known victims of the plague have been identified.
Three details about Crossing the Ocean are that people got diseases that killed have of the crew another reason is storms blew immigrant vessels off the boat. The last reason is about four hundred people had to shared two toilets. Poor immigrants I wish life wasn’t so hard for the immigrants as it is now the people on that boat deserved a nice trip instead of a nasty, gross frightened, awful trip. The nest story I am about to tell you is about the immigrants life and how hard it was for them.
Economic and Social Consequences of the Black Death The Black Death was no modest disease it swept all over Europe during the dark ages , had immense and annihilating effects and is in fact one of the most disastrous and destructive pandemics in human history. It rapidly spread through Medieval Europe during 1347-1351 killing more than one third of the population. In the midst of Italy’s overpopulated cities 50 to 60 percent of the population died while villages were completely swept of their people in England and Germany (Spielvogel World History and Geography 248-249). The Black did not only bring the tragedy of killing millions but it also came with many consequences such as economic inflation and extreme social distinction ("Social and Economic Effects of the Plague").After the intense shock of the Black Death, Europe’s economically declined, its internal affair were instable and its social systems
The black death had affected Europe by killing ⅓ of its people within 4 years. The black death also known as the black plague had given people black boils that had oozed blood and puss. It also withheld them from keeping food down as they became overcome with fever and delirious pain. The plague had not only affected humans, it also affected cows, sheep, goats, pigs, and chickens (“Black Death”). The living conditions in Europe of the time were very harsh.
The Black Plague was a horrible epidemic that killed between 25 and 45% of the populations it encountered. The plague spread from China to Europe and the Middle East quickly. While the Black Plague hit the Middle East and Europe, Christianity and Islam were the dominant religions. Though they both lived through the horrifying experience of the Black Plague, they had different responses, and Muslims had the most reasonable one. During the Black Plague, the Muslims didn’t look to their God for answered to the death that was laid upon them, but they accepted it.
The lifestyle they experienced was inhuman and very difficult to even find a way to keep yourself alive many of these marches had a 50% death rate, according to “Encyclopedia Judaica” . During the marches, if you began to fall behind the SS soldiers had strict orders to club you, or shoot you. The soldiers mad them run the whole time as fast as they could. If you tripped or fell you would risk getting trampled to death by the other inmates who were running. “Night,” by Elie Wiesel states, “The SS made us increase our pace... Why not?
Never before had they experienced summers so warm and winters so cold, especially as they arrived to America during “the little ice age”. Disease affected both natives and colonists. Smallpox devastated the Indians, “their flesh became so consumed with sores that their flesh adhered to the mats on which they slept,” (pg 172). Influenza also killed hundreds upon thousands of Indians and Colonists. Settlement & Migration The colonists may have been wary of traveling to far into Indian territory when the first arrived to America, but they soon spread along the coast.
When the Europeans came over, they brought diseases and wars which caused the Native American populations have a sharp decline. This happened because the diseases were killing off millions of Natives while wars between the Native Americans and Europeans cause more Natives to be killed because the weapons that the Europeans had were more advanced than the Native American weapons. This allowed for Europeans to come to the Americas and colonize without much issue because of the lack of Native Americans that were trying to stop
The area the carried the most disease was the Isthmus. When Americans had took over the job of building the canal, many of them had lost their lives due to the disease. Roosevelt realized that with people getting sick, and some dying he needed to find help quickly. With the help of William Gorgas, the disease of malaria was finally wiped out. However, this did not happen right away because in 1905 an outbreak of yellow fever had just hit.
This was the main factor of the decline of the Roman Catholic Church. Since two thirds of the population died, the serfs who survived the plague decided that they wanted more money because they had to do a lot more work. This caused the decline of the feudal system because the serfs gained power and did not want to stay at the bottom of the feudal system. (A).
