The Patriots were feeling defeated after the first 2 years of war, and the makeshift Pennsylvania winter camp didn 't add to their spirits. Valley Forge was a tough time for the American Army, and many soldiers wanted to quit because of the hardships. If I were a soldier, I would have quit Valley Forge for a multitude of reasons. The living conditions were inadequate, there was a minimal amount of supplies, and illness and death was common in the camp. In essence, the cons of staying at Valley Forge outweighed the Pros.
Many people were surprised by the coziness of dugouts and sod houses. They were cool in the summer, warm in the winter and good shelter from the wild prairie weather. The fact that they were basically made of dirt made them virtually fireproof.
Fire is really dangerous and strong especially when put next to something that can catch on fire. On October 8 to October 10, in 1871, a big fire happen in Chicago that really took a toll in Chicago.The fire last around 2 to 3 days leaving Chicago in flames and thick black smoke ( Billings,et al. PG 146-147 ).
We recently did a debate on a major problem in the world today, environmental issues. Two students were given a topic, like landfills, deforestation, wildfires, etc., and had to debate on pros and cons on whether or not it is good for the environment. I did not like the setup of the debate because I could not hear some people and I did not feel fully engaged in the conversation. Overall, I liked how we were free to talk at times and the connections to real life scenarios. This was the first time I heard about Live Google which I thought was a really cool part of the presentation as I was able to expand on an idea more. Here are summaries of some of the topics the students were given.
Often a structure is designed in a way that will prove durability against climate and environmental activity. For example, Thomas Coram’s painting entitled, “View of Mulberry House and Street” (Fig. 15-6) depicts the houses of the African American slaves with very high, pointed roofs. This specific home design was used by African American slaves in order to keep their houses cooler at floor level. In this case, the function of the high pointed roof in each house was to allow for the warmer air to rise and keep the cooler air down. Another example is that of the Mesa Verde “Spruce Tree House” (Fig. 15-7) which depicts cliff side caves, built as means for stable homes by The Anasazi. It only makes sense that they chose to build caves as opposed to houses on the cliff because had they built houses, the rain and wind could have easily caused destruction on
There is a debate about using prescribed fires. Prescribed fires are fires that help reduce the catastrophic damage that wildfire creates. prescribed fires work most of the time, but they can be faulty at some points. That's why some people don't agree with using prescribed fires. Even though they sometimes don't work, they can be really helpful when they do work.
Texas is home for 25 million residents and the population will continue to rise in the future. The Lone Star is a great place to start your careers or to build a family because of the available resources and a wide range of opportunities. However, on the other hand, comparing to other states, the weather in Texas is extreme and unpredictable. According to the Texas A&M Forest Service, Texas is one of the three natural disaster states in the nation. Same as other natural disasters, wildfires in Texas can be hazardous because they can burn down resources, destroy wildlife and can put a great cost on property restoration. Fire hazards are at greater risk in regions with a big gap differences between their wet and dry seasons. Rainy season give
It is important to the environment that there be controlled fires for any number of reasons such as, putting the nutrients back into the soil, and clearing out debris that could be hazardous if a wildfire were to occur. This does not come with out it 's faults, sometimes the fire becomes to big to handle and they become near misses or wildfires. Prescribed fires are great for the ecosystem and the overall well being of forests. They make ecosystems more diverse and replenish the soil for new plant growth.
“Had the department been able to get up close to the church, water could have been thrown on the roof, but as it was, they were unable to get within striking distance and there were no ladders of sufficient length available.” There have been so many fires it is hard to count them all. To start out with, the fire that took the Baptist church is one. Next, there is the Methodist church, which the same fire took a livery barn also. Lastly, there is the Mental Health Institute, in which the fire destroyed part of the building. There have been many fires in Mt. Pleasant, including the bowling alley, the Baptist Church, a livery barn owned by Ross Bros., the Methodist Church, and finally, the Mental Health Institute.
The Grenfell Tower fire tragedy is presumed to have claimed 79 lives. Initially, the local council authorities were blamed for approving the construction of substandard high-rise buildings that threatened public safety (Scott p.1). On the contrary, it appears most of these assumptions were flawed, since additional revelations were exposed. For example, construction experts blamed the rapid spread of the fire on the of the 1967 archaic design standards. In addition, the failure was attributed to the external cladding that had been installed in the £10 m refurbishment.
No doubt about it, we support the Union. We need to get the Southern states back into the Union and abolish slavery there. We believe Antietam could have ended quicker with less casualties if General McClellan had used his advantages while he had them. He should be fired from his high position for what happened at Antietam. He lost 12,400 men because he didn’t use advantages while he had them. A man in that high of a position should make better decisions on the battlefield. General George McClellan no longer deserves his position after the events that occurred on September 17 near Antietam Creek. I hope I am not the only one shares this opinion and that President Lincoln hears our opinion and reacts with at least a demotion. I also believe
I am not going to answer that question just yet. Without assessing all of the information to prevent the making of unfounded accusations. First things first you may be asking yourself what a Triangle Shirtwaist is. A triangle shirtwaist is a type of blouse that many women wore in the early 1900's. You probably may want to acquaint yourself with the victims of the inferno. A vast, vast majority of the casualties were Jews from Italy or Russia. A high count of them was under the age of 25. Now let's talk about the owners the company. The names of the owner's of the company were Max Blanck and Isaac Harris As soon as the news of the inferno hit the printing presses the citizens
In 1871, Chicago witnessed a horrible disaster. It was a city ready to burn to flames. In the book, The Great Fire by Jim Murphy clearly shows just how easy it was for Chicago to catch fire. He also shows enough evidence to why the city was ready to burn.
On the seventh of February 2009, the Black Saturday Bushfire burnt across the state of Victoria. The most devastating bushfire in the Australian history. It is considered to be one of the deadliest fires to burn in Australia as it managed to burn down over 4500-square-kilometres of land, destroy 2029 homes, kill 173 people, injure 5000 people and kill thousands of animals. Individuals, groups and government stood together to help the victims in any possible way. They did so by donating money individually, communities helping the victims and government assisting them financially.
