Many times the child would suffer in pain and agony until they passed away. Only about 200 children survived. Furthermore, prisoners were fed a miniscule amount of food, and they were forced to do slave labor. This would cause their bodies to be exhausted daily. With the extreme physical exertion combined with starvation, many prisoners perished.
There was about 3,989 soldiers who got sick, and 1800 of them who died. 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
Many lives were lost and changed. The Trail of Tears in 1839 was a horrific event that removed thousands of Native Americans from there homes. They were forced to travel a thousand miles on foot to a new land. Thousands of lives were lost along and after the journey. The removal effected the Cherokees greatly and it still effects them today.
Thousands of prisoners died on the forced "death march" as a result of the freezing weather, weak health and starvation. Around 3,000 sick prisoners who had been left behind in the camp, among them doctors and medical assistants, were liberated by Soviet and Polish troops on 22nd and 23rd April 1945.

River crossings, accidents, weather, and drowning, starvation, dehydration and Indian attacks caused most deaths. However, the main cause of death, by far, was disease. An estimated amount of six to ten percent of all pioneers became ill in some form. Around thirty thousand of the three hundred fifty thousand people on the trail suffered from a disease. The main illnesses were cholera, dysentery, mountain fever, and measles.
Listen to how almost 350 settlers died in these five years full of hardships. The first reason for death was Starvation. The settlers died from Starvation because they were not prepared. The settlers died from starvation because they were not prepared. A historian named Carville V. Earle once said, “Fish are present in local streams, but only in the spring and early summer are they there in impressive abundance.”(Blanton 55).
In 2011 ,an Illinois hog farm spilled 200,00 gallons of faeces into a creek, taking the lives of over 110,000 aquatic lives. (“Farm sanctuary organization,” n.d., para.3). Factory farming can cause permanent and highly impactful damage to the already dying environment we live in. Animals that are used for entertainment purposes will also bring many effects to the animals themselves. Many people go to circuses, zoos and other forms of entertainment and only see the good side of it.
This causes heavy disease to spread around the environment due to unwholesome and unnatural confinement of living creatures. As US farming industries kill more than 30 millions bird each day and 10 billions bird in a year, this animal carnage can pollutes a land, air, and water that contains variety of diseases including bacteria, chemicals and viruses. Also, poisoned well water is a major issue on the Delmarva Peninsula which kills about 600 million chickens per year and it results 3.2 billion pounds of raw waste, 14 million pounds of phosphorous and 49 million pounds of nitrogen. Another situation happened in southeastern part of us which areas are being turned into fly-infested places by the poultry industry. The wildlife habitat is destroyed to erect new poultry houses, slaughtering plants and worker’s trailer parks.
“Fifty percent of all child deaths are involved in undernourishment”(‘Facts About Hunger And Poverty’). Fifty percent is a huge number, especially when it comes to child deaths. Many people do not pay attention to their surroundings and often do not care that there are people in this world who are dying because of hunger. World Hunger all around our planet is mainly caused by food wastage, but by remembering to not waste after eating, can change everything. World Hunger around the earth is resulting in many people suffering and even dying.
Zoos can’t provide the amount of space that a animal have in the wild. Meaning if the space does not suit the animal it will stress out causing the zookeeper to have to kill the animal. “ That means tigers and lions have around 18,000 times less space in the zoo then in the wild”.Zoos are becoming more dangerous for animals. 3,000 to 5,000 stressed animals are killed each year in zoos. Do you believe that over 400 animals are killed a month, 13 a day,1 every 2 hour all killed in zoos.
Constant exposure to death and disease took their toll, as well. Disease would spread deadly and fast due to poor sanitation and the close quarters soldiers were put in. For example, there were over 1,300,000 cases of diarrhea among Civil War soldiers, and 34,000 of those cases ended in death. In addition to that, surgeries and amputations were responsible for a great deal of death as well, with over 20,000 soldiers dying post-surgery (Civil War 150 Interactive). Much of the death was a result of the fact that surgeons were not knowledgeable on subjects like hygiene or how bacteria spreads.
Yellow fever is known to exterminate thirty thousand people yearly. Since dead bodies were everywhere on the ground volunteers would gather them and they would carry those who are dying as well. During this time period African Americans were required to give care to those who are ailing and on the verge of death. This took place after the population began to decrease and many started to leave the region of Philadelphia and a small amount of people were left for nurturing and interring jobs. To sum up, many thought due to the chill, aseptic atmosphere was the reason as to why the yellow fever fled.
On September 11, 2001 the twin towers were attacked. A total of three thousand people died that morning. The worse thing is that four hundred of them were policemen and firemen they were trying to save other people but they died in the action.They all died from the collapse or being stuck in the rubble for too long. ("11 Facts About 9/11.") This disaster caused lots and lots of lives from innocent people.
The war took the lives of thousands of soldiers, civilians, and important figures. Towards the end, the confederates suffered 260,000 casualties and the Union suffered 360,000 casualties. In total, almost 620,000 soldiers lost their lives fighting for what they believed in. This war occurred between the years 1861 and 1865. The biggest battle during this war was the Battle of Gettysburg, a true dog fight that lasted for 3 whole days, where 51,112 troops were killed.
In total, over 600,000 soldiers lost their lives in battle and to disease. While many soldiers anticipated the honorable death of dying on the field, there were twice as many soldiers that died from disease in the camp as that that died in battle. During the 19th century, medicine was relatively primative, and the lack of the germ theory or knowledge of antiseptic resulted in rapid disease spreading. Lack of general resources such as adequate clothes, nutrition, clean water, and santitary stations also contributed to the spread of common diseases like measles, typhoid fever, and malaria. Most commonly, soldiers suffered from diarheia and disentary, which combined with lack of clean water resulted in many cruel deaths.
