“I see one marker that dates back to 1823, the numbers almost weathered away. Over two hundred years later and still remembered” (Pearson, 35). This quote shows there is a futuristic setting because she talked about how the marker was from 1823 and it was over 200 years old so it would be somewhere around 2023 in her time. This is important to the story because if it wasn 't set in the future Jenna would have died from the car crash. Another way the story shows it is set in the future is when Jenna’s grandma tells her about how there was a big earthquake that caused part of California to sink into the ocean.
The San Francisco Earthquake killed many - over 3000 to be exact. Not everything is known about the Earthquake but we do know a small bit, from Art. Paintings, Stories, Films, Photos and more.

By the way one of the American author, Thomas Sowell, had said that “All thing are the same except for the differences and different except for the similarities” and that it true however both of them are the top strongest earthquakes but they are some different and similarity between them. Valdivia earthquake and Alaska earthquake are happened in America. They have the same impact like secondary hazard.
The ancient Roman town-city of Pompeii was located near modern day Naples in the Italian region of Campania. Pompeii, Herculaneum and many other surrounding villages were almost completely destroyed and buried under 20 feet of ash and pumice in the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The disaster demolished the city, killing its inhabitants and burying it almost completely. Before the disaster, Pompeii was not a town that was well known, but it did flourish. It is believed that it was founded by the Etruscans in the late seventh or early sixth century BC.

The writing “We Choose Honor” has a very moving subject that includes a variety of syntax, diction, imagery, and tone to achieve its claim. The subject itself is 9/11, the catastrophic disaster that moved the United States in a way it hadn’t in decades. With such a large topic at hand, Elie Wiesel takes the disaster and shapes it into a writing that emotionally captures millions of readers. The all-around purpose of this writing is to empower and inform the people reading; Unfortunately, such an instance will be forever engraved in the skull’s of those affected by this tragedy, and Wiesel was one of them. Nonetheless, the tragic loss of thousands of individuals on that day will be eternally remembered through history.
She would also explain a theory on why their might be another big earthquake coming soon to California. On the other hand, in The Odyssey, written by Homer, there are many amazing stories about the sea god, Poseidon, shaking the earth in wrath of something that Odysseus has done, ashe tries to stop him from returning home to Ithaca. Not only where these stories fun to listen to, and used to have a good time, but they were also what most of the Greeks believe was happening in their world. Because back then the Greeks did not have the scientific advancements that we now take advantage of in today's day of age.
This is important to understand so that we may respect the power and destruction of volcanoes. Powerful civilizations have fallen because of volcanic eruptions and the entire world can be impacted because of a single eruption. Volcanoes can erupt with more power then any human made bomb and can send an array of dangerous hazards down its slopes. It is ironic that mankind knows all of the risks that come with living by a volcano, not only because of scientific research but also because of past volcanic eruptions, and yet people continue to build houses near or next to volcanoes. Volcanoes offer a lot of benefits to society.
These wall paintings currently to this day, are the most important art form of Pompeii and its surrounding areas. The city of Pompeii was buried in volcanic ash in 79 C.E., when Mt. Vesuvius erupted, however, the ash preserved a huge quantity of wall paintings and broadened the understanding the Roman culture. For the Romans, the paintings were not only reserved for the wealthy, but those able to afford them. The paintings were not uniform throughout the home, concluding that there was a connection between the room and images on the wall.
In 1932 as well, Manchuria, China was invaded by Japan, and in 1935, Abyssinia, Ethiopia was invaded by Italy. Because of the incidents and invasions between these countries before the year 1939, I believe WWII started before a declaration of war was even signed. In 1923, there was an incident between Bolivia and Paraguay over who was going to control the northern part of the Gran Chaco region of South America. It was the bloodiest military conflict that was battled during the 20th century, and it was awful for each country because both were poor and had lost land in previous wars. The region was thought to be rich in oil because some oil was found in the foothills of the Andes.
Sometimes while writing a historical fiction, events become more factual than fictional. A perfect example of this happening in a historical fiction, is the book Pompeii by Robert Harris. Pompeii takes place in 79 AD during the days prior to the destructive eruption of Mount Vesuvius which destroyed all of the Roman town Pompeii. The location of the book are the cities or towns that surround the Aqua Augusta, such as Misenum and Pompeii. Harris’s exceptionally descriptive anecdote of the events leading to the volcanic eruptions implores readers to wonder if some of the events in this fictional story could have actually happened.
