The prison hasn’t just been used to provide a building, but its been used for it’s material and has been slowly torn apart. Piece by piece through time, parts of the prison have been torn down. In 1916, there was a flood in Yuma and what the townspeople used to rebuild were parts from the prison (Murphy 1). In order for the Southern Pacific Railroad to be built the western walls and the woman's cells had to be destroyed in 1923 (The Yuma Territorial Prison). More destruction was made when the hospital in the prison and the Mes Hall were burned down in 1924 (The Yuma Territorial Prison).
Around the time that the prison closed, a flood came through and seriously damaged the town of Yuma. When this happened, the townspeople decided to go up to the prison and scavenge for materials but when they had finished the prison site ended up looking like a bombing site. The townspeople of Yuma accidentally destroyed one of the biggest pieces of Yuma’s history. Another significant use of the prison after it closed down was as the first residence of Yuma High School. The prison hospital and library were the main locations that class took place, but some of the cells were also used.

In Lee Sandlin’s spectacular essay, “Losing the War,” he explains that in the context of World War II, the “amnesia effect” of time has lead to a bizarre situation; “the next generation starts to wonder whether the whole thing [war] ever actually happened,” (361). All that seems to be remembered is a reverie; a spectacle of valiance and bravery. The older generation —the ones who were there—simply became the collateral damage. The war, in all its infamy, can never be
The Fall Of Rome Rome was one of the greatest cities in history, and soon enough it died off. My reasons for it dying of, is plague, earthquake, and the huns. I found this information in Document D and Document F. Historians have many reasons they think why Rome eventually died out, leaving an abandoned city. Document D give information on the Huns. The Huns were the definition of savagery, Rome had to go to war with the Huns.
According to the rulers of Pistoia, any old imported cloth was to be burned and corpses were not permitted to enter within the city (Doc 2). Given that they were the leaders of that city, they might have been influenced through recent experiences. Also, according to Visconti, people who recently encountered a dead body must stay isolated for 10 days (Doc 3). Given that
The empire lasted for about 1,226 years before its “fall” in 476 CE. Critics argue rhat political instability helped bring about the “Fall” of Rome, however, the military mistakes were the primary reason behind the decline of the empire. First of all, one of the dominant reasons for the fall of Rome was the slothfulness of the army. According to the Document B Vegetius excerpt, “... because of negligence and laziness, parade ground drills were abandoned.” The military stopped doing parade ground drills.
After the war between the Districts and the Capitol, it was rumored that the Capitol destroyed district 13. The Capitol later confirmed these rumors by showing footage of the destroyed District 13 each year. The problem was that every time they showed footage of district 13, there was always a mocking jay that sat in the exact same sport every time the footage was aired. This led Katniss to believe that all was not what it seemed, and that district 13 may still be out there. This was then confirmed later on in the book.
After Montag’s house burned down montag was thinking of some of the things that were know buried under it and he couldn’t move. “A great earthquake came with the fire and leveled his house, Mildred had been buried under their somewhere and his entire life was under there somewhere” (Bradbury pg.112). Montag probably couldn’t understand why he did what he did because his entire life was in that house. Montag could be feeling that everything is being taken from him, like now his house is gone and Mildred left. Mildred had decided to turn in her husband then give up her parlor family.
This is seen when Oswald says about Engstrand’s home to Mrs.Alving “It’ll burn just like this one/ Everything will burn. There is nothing left to remind people of Father. I, too, am burning.”(Ibsen 63).In this quotation, it is seen how Oswald was trying to save his father’s image by trying to save the orphanage and he failed to do so. He was trying to save the only thing which was left of his father and the only thing which people will remember his father by. Also, Oswald feels that he is falling apart and “burning” inside just as the orphanage, this makes Oswald identifies with the orphanage and it reflects how Oswald feels.
