According to Document C, “There comes a soldier, his bare feet are seen thro’ his worn out shoes, his legs nearly naked from the tattered remains of an only pair of stockings.” This shows that the soldiers barely have clothes. How can someone in the army continue to get stronger and fight more if they barely have clothes in the freezing temperatures of winter? Also, according to Document C, “I can’t endure it-Why are we went here to starve and freeze.” This shows that the camp lacks in both food and clothes which causes the soldiers to freeze and starve from hunger and lack of clothes to keep them warm. There is constantly a lack of food in the camp and when there is food is it very nasty tasting food. How can I know that after we are done at this camp I will get the supplies I need to survive if I didn’t get them now?
The neglection of the sanitation of camps and little knowledge about how diseases are carried led to many many deaths during the civil war. The hospitals still had not discovered the importances of sanitation and hygiene. The lack of water and time meant that they did not wash their hands or their instruments after usage and surgery. Knives covered in blood were used as scalpels and doctors wore pus stained clothes, because of this sepsis or pyemia, pus in the blood, was very common and very
These are the three main characters in the book that had their appearances misunderstood. Boo Radley is constantly assumed of being a horrible person. There are many rumors that spread around the town. A rumor about Boo Radley started and spread quick, ¨...Boo drove the scissors into his parents leg…,¨ as he was sitting in his house cutting up newspaper for his book (Lee 13). Boo never goes outside so no one has ever spoken to him, no one knows if this actually happened.
As cannon balls flew threw the sky, I knew I had to save my country. My family heard about our glory, that we won Trenton. I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are family, glory and freedom.These three reasons are very important, especially for us soldiers. Many things happened during this timeline like in 1773 the Boston tea party happened, in 1776 the declaration of independence was signed, in 1787 the writing of the constitution began, in 1783 the treaty of Paris ended the revolutionary war. Also, many diseases went on during this war, including more things for example: we were the Continental army, many people deserted to not fight in the war, scarlet fever was one of the best known diseases, Howe's army quartered in Philadelphia, valley forge was a camp 18 miles northwest of Philadelphia, quakers were people who fed the Continental army.
He talked for a whole day and convinced the House of Commons that the Stamp Act was not really good for England.” Quote from source 2: “Nevertheless, he threw his energies behind the cause of independence and got himself appointed to the Second Continental Congress. He also traveled to Canada to get the Canadians to join the colonial fight for independence.” Quote from source 3: “In October 1776, Franklin and his two grandsons sailed for France. There he achieved an amazing personal triumph and gained critical French aid for the Revolutionary
Just because I am not re-enlisting, it does not mean that I have lost all hope for the Continental Army. They still can win the war, even if all they are is just a group of barely trained farmers. The soldiers in Washington’s army are dedicated. They believe that they have a chance at winning. In 1773 I got the news that my brother participated in an event in Boston.
Tenement life in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s was very difficult, it could even be called somewhat dangerous. Tenements were usually very small living spaces that contained no more than 2 rooms. Most rooms had 2 or no windows at all, the buildings were also built very close together on narrow streets. Some tenements had little ventilation, there was no central heating or air conditioning so the tenements were very hot during the summer and very cold during the winter. Tenements were not the safest place for a person to live because living conditions were very poor.
Thousands of prisoners died from starvation, cold or exhaustion. The marches were usually held in winter, and prisoners had to walk miles with little rest while SS guards swapped groups to rest. Any prisoners that fell or lagged behind were shot and left on the road. The prisoners scooped up snow to drink, and were given little food throughout the march. They could not save the food to make it last longer and had to eat it at once for fear of other stronger captives stealing it (Ancona-Vincent).
Waldo’s central focus in his diary entry is the struggles the army went through at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777. He talks about how the troops are becoming sick, are running out of food, are exhausted, and have very poor living conditions in the harsh cold. According to Albigence Waldo, “Here all is confusion, smoke and cold, hunger and filthiness.” Additionally, he discusses the effects of these harsh conditions on the soldiers. Their situation causes them to become downcast with loss of faith and hope of surviving through the winter. The winter of 1777 at Valley Forge was one of sickness, trials, and gloom for the soldiers fighting in the war.
Is skipping that ten-minute drive to the shelter really worth putting a pet in that bad of a situation? These animals are starving, dehydrated, lonely, and sometimes even injured or hunted by another animal that wants to eat them. A quote on Pinterest says,”Life on a chain is no life at all. If you don’t want them in your home, you shouldn't have them.” This quote is trying to say that
