One reason a soldier would quit Valley Forge is the lack of food. The lack of food is a dreadful hardship the soldiers have to deal with. This hardship brings about not just hunger but many other factors. When you are hungry from the lack of food, you are weak and because you are weak you cannot fight well or deal with simple problems well. This effects basicly the whole war in a way.
The Reconstruction Era of American history was plagued by many problems. One of the most important problems being the recently released from slavery Freedmen. Freedmen were in a tricky situation in which they had just been released from their owner and had nowhere to go, but the Federal Government made many successful attempts to help them out. The Government helped alleviate all the problems Freedmen had from their finances to basic needs and rights, and in doing so, made the period of reconstruction more helpful than harmful for Freedmen. The events of reconstruction were helpful to freedmen as they were not only freed from slavery, they were given rights directly from the federal government.
Namely, the colonists were terrible with sanitation; terrible disease was wrought amongst them, these colonists didn’t bring women who were generally better at caregiving, and the list in Document C holds not the label of the farmer; hence, there was no well-grown food. Additionally, the list contains large numbers held to describe the gentlemen’s quantity. The gentlemen were people of wealth and they weren’t used to laboring with their hands. This was detrimental to the survival of the Jamestown colonists. Also, the first settlers brought no apothecary and only one surgeon; the expediency of every medical need, most likely in this case, only grew and ever germinated.
Including rain, which was difficult because, “there was no shelter on open plains and covered wagons leaked” (Lemke). The simplest nature changes like this on the Oregon Trail caused the important items on their wagons like food and clothing to get soaked, which resulted in a depletion of necessary supplies, harming them long-term. Furthermore, if the most basic climate brought about such an alarm, one could only imagine the effects of a disastrous storm, which caused, “Half a dozen people killed by lightning strikes”
(History.com staff) “2.5m people fled the areas that had been affected by the dust bowl”. Because of all the debris, it was hard to even breathe in that area. “Dust clouds rose as high as 10,000, making it impossible for people to live there”. The dust clouds not only were super big, but took a long time to go by too. “Drought struck from 1934 until 1937 there was a drought, so there was no water for the families”.
With actual temperatures plummeting to negative seven, and the wind chill bringing it down to -50 to -60 degrees, the dangers brought with the storm had grown beyond snow drifts and zero visibility. The devastating effects-both in terms of temperature and snow accumulation-brought on by the Blizzard of 1977 were enough for President Jimmy Carter to declare all of Western New York a federal disaster area. According to the National Weather Service, this was the first time in the history of the United States that a snowstorm had been declared a federal
Many people were not able to find a permanent job but instead working for temporary jobs that offer low wages. Some families were forced into refugee camp and barely passing with selling the few goods they still own. Selling used goods was not enough support families with many children. As a result, the vulnerable children died due to lack of nutrients . This man-made famine was a massage from the environment.
The jail smelled bad because of all the body odor and filth, one of the first things Abigail notices as she enters. It was always an uncomfortable temperature, too hot in the summer, to cold in the winter. It was crowded, at one point there was up to 150 people in Salem Jail (Weiser). Prisoners were required to pay for basic essentials, and if they couldn’t afford it, they went without. Poor people were put in cells so small you couldn’t lie down and were given nothing to survive on.
Up to 15,000 people were stranded. Walking on streets were impossible. Overall about 200 people were killed by the blizzard of New York City alone. Animals were stranded without food or water, buildings could collapse. Blizzards are the biggest harm to animals because they are stranded and stuck with
