With all of these soul-shattering, life-changing conditions, it is less of a war and more of a test of strength for the soldiers, here at Valley Forge. Some men were going home and not returning. Other men just completely deserted. Even George Washington’s position was uncertain, the members of congress didn’t trust him. Life at Valley Forge was obviously horrible, and the ugly truth is that it wouldn’t get much better.
Today the USA Army help the widow with an insurance, instead of medal, the widow receive an American flag. But I know that in other countries this painting scene is still the same. The family has no resources and when the soldier died, there isn’t any help at all for them. For me this painting works as a voice, showing the soldier’s sacrificed, but also the consequences for the family he’s leaving
Richard Henry Lee Richard Henry Lee was born into an eminent Virginia family on January 20, 1732, at Stratford Hall in Westmoreland, Virginia. His father, grandfather and his four brothers all served as military officers, diplomats, and legislators. Richard was tutored at home and then sent to Wakefield Academy in England for his formal education. After graduation, he traveled in Europe, and then returned to Virginia in 1752. After school in England, he was elected to the Virginia House of Burgesses and later was a delegate to the Second Continental Congress, where he proposed the colonies should be independent from Great Britain.
“ before the dumping of the tea, there was an act made that when tea entered Boston all tea was taxed 3 pence a pound”(Macaulay). The east india company was the ones to tax the tea. Britain a wasn 't too pleasant about the tea dumping so they passed an act for instance. “The intolerable act where the American patriots term for a group of punitive laws passed by the British parliament in 1774 after the Boston tea party”(Walker). After the act was passed everyone who was apart of the dumping went separate ways to the loyal nine.
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
Deciding not to re-enlist is a choice I made because of the lack of trust, living conditions, illness at Valley Forge. I participated in the Boston Tea Party and little did I know that in four years I would be freezing at Valley Forge. In 1777, Washington and his soldiers arrived at Valley Forge. The Declaration of Independence helped the Revolutionary War start. In October of 1777, Washington was unable to stop the British from marching into the national capital of Philadelphia.
They will have to stay there for the rest of their lives. They will have to live from the perspective of a harp seal, so they will also have to catch their own food, there will be nothing to help them do so either, because they get no materials. The harp seals they so brutally slaughtered, surely didn’t get any materials to help them live, or to protect themselves. They have to live in the same climate as a harp seal too, which is really cold, because if they didn’t it would be too hot for the predators to survive, and they wouldn’t able to get the full experience of being a harp seal. Harp seals also don’t wear clothes, the fur that they have is natural, and is apart of them, so these people shouldn’t be allowed to wear clothes, but since I’m feeling generous right now, I’ll let them keep their undergarments, but no pants, shirts, socks, hats, coats/jackets, shoes, or anything else like that.
The Valley Forge War is not like any other war. It’s the Winter of 1777-1778 in Valley Forge and the American colonists are at war with the British and things don’t look so good for the colonists. Would I have quit? I have decided not to reenlist for three reasons which are the freezing weather, the sickness, and I don’t want to die. The first reason I won’t re-enlist is the harsh weather.
History staff.com also wrote “After Serving under Washington for four years Hamilton resigned in Febuary 1781 after a dispute with the general, but he remained in the Army.” This shows loyalty because even though Alexander got into a fight with the general he still stayed in the continental Army Alexander Wanted what was good for the cause of America. He tried to end most slavery and protect the now unslaved slaves. Hamilton stayed loyal to his fellow Americans that he fought within the war and battles, Alexander never was a trader it wasn’t in his personality. He was also a extremely smart man he wrote lots of papers and worked in different organizations. He even stayed in the army when George and and him got into a little disagreement and resigned, ALexander just went to serve in a different part of the Army.
We celebrate Veterans Day every year on November 11th to honor the men and women who served and is still serving our wonderful country. We shouldn’t honor a veteran just once a year but everyday because they are protecting us everyday. When we say the pledge in the mornings we should be thinking about our veterans and what they did for us. Many veterans we get to still celebrate with and some were not so lucky and didn’t make it back home to their loved ones. So we have
If was a soldier at Valley Forge would I re-enlist? The answer is I would not re-enlist for these three reasons which are awful conditions, don’t want to die, and disease. The first reason I will not re-enlist is their awful conditions at Valley Forge. I won’t re-enlist for this reason is there is no meat. When we have food it’s nasty and not nutrition for you.We had meat and bread to eat and firecake which was a mixture of flour and water.
The winter of 1777-1778 has been rough enough already. I’ve been here for 8 months, and in 1 more month I can choose to re-enlist, or go home. My decision has already been made. Although George Washington is trying his best, his monotonous words will not be enough to keep me in this graveyard. I refuse to risk my health and in all likelihood die from the sickness and disease going around camp.
What reasons can you think led to their fate? The settlers did not want to come over here in the first place, but James Oglethorpe gave them incentives to come. The settlers decided that they wanted to go back to England and rule the colony from there and not have to worry about what anyone did. During the travel it took ninety days to get from Georgia to England and so when they get back they do not really do anything except sit around and think that they are better than everybody
Have a meaningful life. If wars happen again, we can always find somewhere safe, and we hide until the war is ended." And she said, “There cannot be any hope for tomorrow… if no one fights for today.” Loss is a sobering phenomenon. Before the Great War, I was just an ordinary citizen. Disastrous always feel so distanced, detached.
If I had been caught, and something had happened to Liesel, Hans or Rosa, I don 't know what I would have done. I left my poor mother at home so I could seek safety but putting another family in danger to save my life was never my intention. When the inspector came today, I came to the terrifying realisation that everywhere I go, danger follows. I can’t bear the guilt of putting their lives at risk any longer. Although I must stay put with the Hubermann’s for now, I can definitely see myself leaving Himmel Street in the near future to secure Liesel, Rosa and Hans’ safety.
