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.
After sending Keav to a labor camp, Loung’s family receives notice that Keav is very sick and on the brink of death. Loung remembers, “People have always said that Keav and I were similar in many ways. We looked almost identical to each other and were also alike in personality… I wrap my arms around my stomach and double over in pain, falling to the ground. In the thick grass, my tears pour out for my sister and seep into the earth” (Ung 99). This quote can connect to the theme because tragedy occurred and Loung was not prepared.
Well many colonists died because of their water supply, their relationship with the natives, and because of their knowledge of survival. These factor lead to early death for most of the colonist. The water supply for Jamestown was brackish, or filthy, and lead to disease. Also, there were many years that they went through a drought and did not have enough water for farming. The colonist dumped human waste into the rivers, and it tended to gather instead of flush away.
Soldiers escorted the natives to their new territory. Thousands of Cherokees died on the journey to their destination due to harsh conditions, “whooping cough, typhus, dysentery, cholera and starvation”. Protection of territory was promised to them but later ended in 1907 when Oklahoma became a state. The Indian territories have completely disappeared. America desired more land and spread of influence.
Looks like the grim reaper had other plans. Many colonists died in Jamestown, Virginia due to lack of fresh water amestown colonists experienced a drought in the first few years before the indians helped them, (Document B). They experienced drought from about 1561-1576,(Document B)This statement proves they had drought (which means lack of water). Settlers in Jamestown called winter the “starving time” because so many died due to
In addition, the article, “Panic Rises in Saigon, but the Exits are Few”, states, "'I called hoping that I could speak to her in one more time,' he added. Now I will never talk to her again'" (Butterfield 55). This quote demonstrates how this person lost his family because they had to leave while he was at work. Due to this, he lost his family like many others. This is a universal refugee experience because many people were forced to leave their families behind in order to survive.
The Dust Bowl was a period of time where the prairies became victim to severe dust storms that greatly damaged the agriculture. These dust storms, largely due to severe drought and wind erosion, caused many farmers in the prairies to experience extreme poverty for as long as eight years. In an effort to escape the storms, starvation, and poverty many farmers and their families left their farms to look for work and food elsewhere as a means of survival. Migrant workers on the other hand were compromised by the overwhelming number of the unemployed during the depression. Largely these migrant workers worked as migrant farm workers planting and harvesting crops, moving throughout the seasons.

The U.S. expansion consequently harmed many Native Americans and caused many problems. The Native Americans were kicked out of their homes, were depleted of resources, or killed. According to the “Trail of Tears” painting context, “the Cherokee faced hunger, disease, and exhaustion. Over 4,000 died on the journey.” Robert Lindneux displayed the Native Americans looking deathly tired and weak during the Trail of Tears. There were many of them all ages moving by horse, wagon, or walking.
Drought It’s been years since water came out of my faucet and days since my last drink of water. Even if I did have water would it be worth the risk? Our people have become diseased. Our animals are suffering and we have to walk miles and miles until we find “adequate” water. How long will it be until that nonprofit comes back?

Henderson was injured while hiking the Appalachian trail when he decided to get off the trail which resulted in him slipping while crossing a stream causing him to break his leg. When this occurred it became a fight for survival.
