Next, in Document C (Diary of Dr. Albigence) there was bad food and it was getting very cold causing soldiers to freeze. Also, they ran out of meat and everybody was throwing up, this was a vary disturbing time. Last, in Document B(Painting by William Henry Powell) the painting shows that the people staying in Valley Forge aren 't doing so well. Also, they look ready to fight because
Even the Supreme Court couldn’t help the Cherokee Nation because Georgia law does not apply to Georgia law. In 1838, President Martin van Buren used the New Echota Treaty and forcibly removed any Cherokee that was still on the land. “ Sixteen thousand Cherokee began the journey, but harsh weather, poor planning, and difficult travel resulted in between 3,000-4,000 deaths on what became known as the Trail of Tears” (yawp). Some Native American Nation’s still dislike/fear the American government. We have taken over Native American land and left them with
If you were a soldier would you stay or would you leave? I would not reenlist to the army because of the sickness and diseases, terrible and harsh conditions, and being overworked and freezing. The soldiers in Valley Forge had to deal with illness and disease. In Document A it says that, “in a six month span, there were more than 1,800 deaths.
Many of the tribe members died as they fled. They finally gave up and surrendered to the soldiers after Chief Joseph gave his famous speech, “Hear me my Chiefs, I am tired. My heart is sick and sad. From where the sun now stands, I will fight no more forever.”
World War I was one of the most barbaric and horrendous events that impacted world history. In the novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich M. Remarque drives home this brutality through his main character. The theme brutality and carnage is displayed through the presence of death, violence, and the guilt the soldiers must carry within them. The soldiers were permanently scarred by the events they witnessed as death is always around them..
In all, four unarmed civilians were killed and dozens injured. English and French Canada hadn 't been so divided since Louis Riel was hanged in 1885. When the war ends, the fallout of the conscription issue would continue long after. For many years the Conservative Party, which had brought in conscription, will find it hard to get votes in Quebec.
The Holocaust was the worst thing to ever take place in history. Many people lost their faith, their family, young children lost their innocence, and many, young and old, lost their life. These weren’t the only things that got lost during the war; many lost their mind as well. Whether it was losing your family or for hunger these people suffered a great deal.
Dozens of people buried at each stop? ⅓ of the people who walked died, this is about 4,000 people but though estimates set as high as 6,000. The main reason these people died is because of Dehydration. Dehydration is when the human body has the loss of bodily fluids such as water. The body sweats off more water than it takes in and when they were walking the trail they had limited amount of water and sweat because of the walking.
Fear struck the community, this dark and stormy night. Things came in stages and out of nowhere. We begin our remembrance ceremony here today with broken hearts in this town in which about 3 weeks ago, this place became the site for yet again another fatal shooting. About half the community killed in a deadly mass shooting in this dome. As we stand here in this ceremony joined by victims and community with points of light shining in the darkness.
The government only provided a single blanket to each Indian as shelter from the cold wind of the winter. The ill-equipped Cherokees were trapped beside the frozen Mississippi River with many of them dying of pneumonia. Starvation and malnutrition made the Cherokees more prone to diseases like cholera, dysentery, and smallpox. After arrival in Oklahoma, the Cherokees tried to acclimatize to their new territory in the process re-establishing their system of government. Currently in the United
It is October and the weather is cold , wet, windy, not to mention snowing and freezing rain. This caused even more pain and suffering with the deaths due to illness and disease. Many also died from hunger and exhaustion. Over 4,000 out of 15,000 Cherokee Indians died during the move to the west. In conclusion, President Jackson was a confusing figure.
There are so many soldiers getting sick with smallpox (Root) and other illnesses, there is a high chance I will get sick too. I overheard General Washington speaking to one of the surgeons concerning the health of our troop. 49% of all of the soldiers are sick. 1800 to 2500 of these die (Busch, 147) including one of my dear childhood friends that came with me to fight the war. I walk by my fellow soldiers and cringe at the sight of some with missing toes or worse (Powell, 149).
The Civil War was one of the bloodiest and most brutal wars America has ever fought. Approximately 620,000 Americans died during this four year war.

Two-thirds of the soldiers that died during the war were due to the lethal diseases. Some of the most common diseases found among soldiers were dysentery, typhoid fever, pneumonia, mumps, measles, and tuberculosis.
