At least if I am lost through this journey, someone back home might be able to find this journal and understand the trouble I am facing. It also seems like forever since I’ve had a real meal. We have gone many days without food in hopes to make our rations last longer. Around day 93, some beast came in the night and stole a large amount of our food. I am traveling by the guidance veterans of the Silk Road.
This land was good for rye, corn, wheat and also some vegetables. Due to this, they are now known as the “Breadbasket” colonies. However, the climate in the Southern Colonies was perfect for farming. It was very warm all year long and with just the right amount of rain. This made it so they had a very long growing season
Things have become so atrocious that George Washington had to ask the Congressional Committee for more money. I doubt they have any to give, for they are more focused on the bigger picture, rather than a few deteriorated soldiers (Doc B). Dr.Waldo wrote in his journal, “A general cry thro’ the camp this evening among the soldiers, “No meat! No meat!” -The distant vales echoed back the melancholy sound- “No meat! No meat!” This tells how us soldiers have been starving for quite a while now, and most of us are done dealing with the hardships.
Jamestown In the film The New World directed by Terrence Malick, three ships are approaching Virginia from London to establish a colony in the New World. The three ships carried 105 passengers and 39 crew members, one passenger being Captain John Smith. However, Captain John Smith was below deck in chains due to being sentenced to death once arriving at land. Luckily, Smith was forgiven by the leader of the expedition, Christopher Newport. After a few days of being on land Christopher Newport travels back to England for more supplies.
The Cherokees were forced to drag the wagons out of the muddy roads. Death became a daily occurrence because of the road conditions, winter distress, and illness. 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.
At least a half-dozen accounts, by people who lived through the period or spoke to colonists who did, describe occasional acts of cannibalism that winter. They include reports of corpses being exhumed and eaten, a husband killing his wife and salting her flesh (for which he was executed), and the mysterious disappearance of foraging colonists.The Starving Time at Jamestown in the Colony of Virginia was a period of starvation during the winter of 1609–1610 in which all but 60 of 214 colonists died. The colonists, the first group of whom had originally arrived at Jamestown on May 14, 1607, had never planned to grow all of their own food. Leaders Captain John Smith became the colony’s leader in September 1608 – the fourth in a succession of council presidents – and established a “no work, no food” policy. Smith had been instrumental in trading with the Powhatan Indians for food.
The thousands of Indians in a month’s, went to hundreds in a weeks, and too few in a days. The federal government forced them to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Mississippi River. Some of the natives were crying that they had to leave their homeland, that they had many generations and traditions created. They made the journey to Indian territory on foot some, bound in chains and marched double file without any food, supplies or other help from the government. The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains.

He can consume 1 ½ packs of cigarettes a day. Therefore, it wasn’t suprising when the doctor diagnosed him with COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, which is a group of long-term lung diseases that make it hard for a person to breathe. Last 2014, we admitted Kuya Pedrito in the hospital. It was hard on our part because there was no one to take care of him. My husband and I have to go to work.
