Some people have so much pride they would rather fail a class than ask for help or keep fighting for an obvious lost cause simply because they can’t give up. Pride is one of the things that I believe drive our military. Our soldiers have so much pride I don’t think they could ever accept defeat. Soldiers fight for their families and friends and even the
What horrible things did the continental army have to suffer in their six- month encampment? They experienced hunger, diseases, and death. Since it was cold some couldn 't bathe causing them to have bad hygiene. Also at the time smallpox and pneumonia was being spread. Since there weren 't many medical supplies, some couldn 't be treated.
Starvation in the Ghettos Do ever wonder how hard it was for people to not starve to death in the ghettos? Well, it was very challenging because you’re starving and can have no clothes in the winter. Also, life in the camps and ghettos were not very fun. People of the ghettos were starving and being fed a very little amount of food. Most of the people in the ghettos would have to smuggle, trade, or buy food.
Your part one was spot on and I completely agree with you. The two colonies have much in common, but also have some important differences. They were both backed by companies looking to make a profit, but Jamestown was all young men while Plymouth was more families. Plus, there is the issue of religion which played a huge role in Plymouth but none at all in Jamestown. I was also interested by what you said about owning property and company property, I didn’t think about that.
However, many of the settlers focused a bit too much on the "find gold" part of their orders (being the most important part of course) because of this, few colonists focused on gathering food, leading to a lack of food for the colony to sustain itself. To combat this, Smith established a simple "tough love" policy, in simple terms, if you did not work, you did not eat. Smith also made trade agreements with the tribes under the leadership of Chief Powhatan. The colonists offered glass and metal goods to the Indians in exchange for food for the colony. Thanks to the actions of John Smith, things were looking great for the colony, however, "his (Smith's) strict leadership made enemies within and without the fort, and a mysterious gunpowder explosion badly injured him and sent him back to England in October 1609."
The colonists of Jamestown endured many hardships in their colony due to their location, lack of planning and poor leadership. After the failure of Roanoke, colonists set up another colony in present day Virginia about 30 miles up the James River from the Atlantic Coast in 1607. The location only set Jamestown into a pit of despair when they figured out it was a horrible spot. The land was swampy, making the land ill-suited for growing crops, not to mention it was plagued by mosquitoes that carried diseases such as Malaria that killed most of the colonists, and the brackish tidal water was unsuitable for drinking. Furthermore, there was lack of planning in the process.
In an interview, Brian said that he, “wanted to give people the freedom that they deserve.” In 7 Qualities of Heroism by Kendra Cherry, “People who rush in to help others in the face of danger and adversity do so because they genuinely care about the safety and well-being of other people.” In the same article, it says that heroes have the ability to overcome fear. Brian overcame the fear of leaving his family so he could be able to protect others at all costs. Being a soldier means making great sacrifices to be able to make a difference. Brian took risks to become a hero that an ordinary human being would not make without immense
Jamestown may have prospered, given proper usage of time and energy. The colonists of Jamestown have made many mistakes, which led to the downfall of Jamestown. Many were not prepared to colonize. If changes were made to the types of people sent, location, supplies sent, government and plans of growth, Jamestown surely would have done much better. With these changes, the outcome of colonizing in Jamestown would have been much easier and prosperous.
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.
This is good because we need less people to give in to their wants. When people give in to their wants they regret because most of the time it affects someone else. When a decision affects someone else it is not a good thing. In the story “The Golden Touch” someone says, “King Midas was fond of gold more than anything.” This is saying that he loved gold and money more than anything. He wanted to have all of the gold in the world.
But it was the shortage of jobs in other areas that presented major opportunities. It goes like this; immigrants would make the trek to California with big hopes, only to be let down when they find the gold wasn’t as easy to find as they thought. They would then get jobs in the fast growing cities. Negatively, this did cause troubles for the Native Americans as it exploited them. The Native Americans fell victim to genocidal attacks, starvation, and diseases.
The people of Jamestown, who came first, came with the dreams of entrepreneurship. They were charted by the Virginia Company and came here to prospect and mine gold. They had no farmers, so they wanted to make a living from other, more capitalistic means. They used indentured servants and native slaves to do the hard labor, while they would search for gold. To their dismay, there was no gold to be found.
Also Jamestown had gigantic drought while they were there and with not enough water, there aren’t going to be very many crops for the colonist to eat. When they brought new people, they brought some grain with them. When they saw the amount it was clear that the grain would help but they wouldn’t last the winter.
