It was the Winter at Valley Forge. I am not going to re-enlist in the war because we have poor conditions, many people are dying, and we are getting very little support. The first reason I am not going to re-enlist in the war is because there were very poor conditions. In document C, the diary of Dr. Waldo, he says “Poor food-hard lodging-cold weather-fatigue-nasty cloaths-nasty cookery-vomit half my time…. why are we sent out here to starve and freeze?” They are dying out here of the poor conditions.
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.
With almost a week of continuing snowfall (a little difficult to believe), the snow piles up almost 15 feet leaving the school with a power outage, no heat, and a collapsing roof. Therefore, Scotty and his friends have to quickly figure out how to escape the school with the resources around them. Even though every character in this book has a distinct personality, they were
1 Diseases Today I want to tell you about the diseases in World War one. Many of those diseases led to the dead of the soldiers because they had little knowledge and medicine. The conditions in the trenches were horrible. Little foot and fresh water, living in wet trenches, no medical care were the cause of those diseases: Trench foot, trench fever, gas, trench mouth, venereal diseases...Soldiers were sick, hungry and were exposure to the elements of nature. World War one was a really bloody affair.
Meat tended to be wormy and bread hard. Even so, his troops were constantly fighting hunger, cold and disease. Such conditions always negatively affect an army 's morale. And in the case of the
I was only a young boy when I was forced to be one of the Continental soldiers, this was one of the coldest winter I’ve ever experienced…… It was on December 9th, 1777, when General Washington and we, the Continental Army, had to build a winter camp at a place that in the future, killed thousands of soldiers, and the name of this place is Valley forge. This place is about 20 mis away from Philadelphia. But here’s the problem, my enlistment is up in one month, my friends wants me to stay so we can fight for liberty and freedom, but I don’t think I’m able to afford the cost of dying,I thought long about this, but I choose to leave…..(Waldo 141) Starting from the first day we arrived at Valley Forge, my life never had been better, instead, it’s
All iron that was used to build the railroad was American made. This made it hard for the Central Pacific Railroad Company to work quickly. The iron and other supplies had to be shipped by sea to Panama then hauled across the isthmus and then reloaded onto ships heading for Sacramento. The Central Pacific Railroad Company faced much more snow than they expected in the Great Plains, at times there were more workers shoveling snow than there were working on the railroads. The building of the railroads would be halted due to avalanches in the winter and scorching high heat in the summers.
They slept and ate in uncomfortable places purposefully chosen to be as far as possible from their old homes. Personal relationships were discouraged, so were expressions of affection. People soon became weak from overwork and starvation, and after that fell ill, for which there was no treatment except death.Not only were those who died were dehumanized. People who escaped murder became unpaid laborers, working on minimum rations and for impossibly long hours. They slept and ate in uncomfortable places purposefully chosen to be as far as possible from their old homes.
There are also icy slopes that they may have struggled up of the death zone, the part of the climb above 26,247 feet where the last camp before the summit is located. The problem had been worse by the large number of climbers who want to meet their goal on climbing Everest. Climbing season lasts for about two months and when the winds on the mountain are not as powerful as during the rest of the year, climbers need to leave the last camp by late morning. There are traffic jams when so many of them are in the death zone. So, climbers can be delayed and can suffer exposure, using their precious supplies of oxygen.
The city of Los Angeles is also struggling with providing shelters, especially for the winters. City council members of Antelope Valley, a city in the Los Angeles area, have decided to step up to this problem. "Lancaster 's only emergency shelter actually closed around August, ' said Raquel Ziegler, crisis housing coordinator for the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority. 'There 's very limited shelter in that area and it gets extremely cold. "The Antelope Valley has some of the tougher temperature extremes in L.A. County, with hot summer days and winter nights that can dip into freezing temperatures.
The conditions were horrible for the soldiers and they were dying out. So would I have quit? I probably would have quit at Valley Forge. By December of 1777, there around 12,000 soldiers left in the Continental Army. By February of 1778, there were only 8,000 soldiers left.
The thousands of Indians in a month’s, went to hundreds in a weeks, and too few in a days. The federal government forced them to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Mississippi River. Some of the natives were crying that they had to leave their homeland, that they had many generations and traditions created. They made the journey to Indian territory on foot some, bound in chains and marched double file without any food, supplies or other help from the government. The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains.
