The sound pierced through the air and at that moment they knew Alexander was dead. The boys were almost through the fence when the guns started to fire again. The bullets were just missing them, but as soon as Josef stood up a bullet struck his leg. Israel was trying to pick his brother up, but was too weak. He knelt down beside his brother and then glanced at Alexander.
Bully beef was the staple food, and even that was rationed. Every morning, men were sent down to the cliff to collect water from the ships. Medical supplies were limited; I had been lucky that they had managed to get the bullet out. The grimmest part of all this would be the morning roll call. There would always be soldiers who didn’t reply.
Day 1 I got lost out in the wilderness. My heart fueled my body with adrenalin, so much that I couldn’t stop shaking. My actions today put everyone in my squad in great danger, and I hate myself for it. We were all so excited for Saturday when we finished up our patrol.
The other Partisans that were with us split up and went back into the base in the woods to check on everyone. Ben struggled getting the fire lit up since he was shaking and couldn’t light the match properly. I wanted to take a quick nap to get some energy back but then we heard banging on the door and on the other side sounded like a grown
So Gilgamesh stood there for a couple second to thing where is the good place so he can die. He said, “ HEART “ The monster got him off guard and hit him twice and Gilgamesh started to get dizzy, and weak and BANG he was there laying down on the floor. The monster noticed him there and was walking forward to him. Gilgamesh was on his world already looking on the heaven, he started thinking about his people, the people he saved and the ones who love him, and he remembers he promised this little girl he’ll be back and save the land. He was rebirth, stood up and got ready to kill the monster, he went up to him and he remember that the strange guy said he, “Don’t stare at his eyes or else you’ll die”.
Again he ate my lunch then he trotted of very cocky. I was lucky the landowners gun had not landed in the puddle, it was perfectly fine. I could not think of another way to shoot this deer without him messing something up. Then it came to me, what if I used a camo ground blind? I went, set it up, then got it ready for the next morning.
The Afghans attacked all four faces of the perimeter but failed to penetrate the defences. The assault slackened at about 9:30 and petered out altogether by midday. Roberts dispatched a mixed force of infantry, cavalry and 2 guns to sweep the area to the south and east and secure the roads leading to Kohistan and Kabul. Nearby villages and forts were destroyed, and straggling fugitive tribesmen were ferreted out of their hiding places and shot without quarter.
They also fought fearlessly for the independence of their country. Some African Americans, even though they were not free, ran away and joined the military “…Many a runaway told the nearest recruiter that he was a freeman, anxious to fight. More often than not, he was accepted without too many questions: the army was always short of men” (Doc.5). In Valley Forge, countless people died during the harsh winter. “During the winter of 1777-1778, dozens of black Virginians served in every one of the state regiments, freezing, starving, and dying at valley forge”(Doc.5).They never gave up and marched and went through harsh drills for eight weeks.
Around 5 P.M. Jackson released his troops on the right flank. While screaming the “Rebel Yell,” Jackson and his troops devastated the Union 11th corps and pushed them back for 2 miles, however, the feeling of victory was short lived. Stonewall Jackson fell mortally wounded when his own men opened fire on him while he and his fellow leaders of the corps returned from a recon mission to reorganise his troops and find the Union lines because they thought it was a Union charge. The skirmishes and games of wits of the first two days gave way to a huge slugging match on May 3rd on 3 sides of the Chancellorsville intersection. General Hooker abandoned a key position in a move of naϊveness while the Confederate artillery bombarded the surrounding area from a high-ground position.
Along time ago in a city far far away from here a city called Chicago, in 1871 chicago was lit in an unknown way. All we do know is that it was a disaster. The author Jim Murphy gives us plenty of reasons why the city was ready to burn for example, There had been a long lasting drought for several months therefore it was very dry, and the town was basically made of wood and could ignite any time it wanted to. Also to made it even worse the roofs on buildings were made of tar,and there were several buildings were filled with tons of hay and coal literally.
The amount of skill needed to hike mountains, cross rivers, and survive deserts is crucial (Doc A). He was lost, and had to use a tree that had been struck by lightning and “he lit a branch in the dying flames”. “Each night he huddled in a hole that he’d dug”, so that he could be warm and not get frostbite. “He ate what he was available” and drank water store in hollowed-out horse-leg containers (Doc B). After doing all of those things that nobody else would think to do I think that it is safe to say that he has great survival skills.
