In DOC.E you can see just how many conflicts the two groups had. If the colonists would have been kind to the indians and then asked for help the indians may have helped the colonists learn how to plant crops and get a fresh supply of water which in the end would have led to very few casualties for the colonists. Although to survive you definitely had to have made tough decisions, In the end Jamestown was successful.The colonists had no idea what they were going into upon arrival in Jamestown, and many died. Why did so many of the Jamestown colonists die? In the end the cause of death for many colonists was starvation,disease, and their unstable relationship with the Powhatans, but because of those who survived the creation of America was made
Even in the text, Martha states, “We were short of provisions most all the time and went hungry…,” meaning they always never had enough to help the company. Drastic differences between us now and the American Settlers back then show how life has improved over the years and gotten easier as well. Journey on the Western Expansion was long and gruesome. Compared to what society has today, American Settlers had to face many challenges that were often hard to face in the first place. As people of today, we get the means of transportation to save the time of difficult journeys and medicine to heal us from illness, but after seeing Martha’s life on the trail through the interview, her and her family’s life led to a difficult path to just getting to Oregon.
They had affected everyone and everything in the area, so many Migrated West. Those who did move still struggled with things because farming was difficult but they did manage. Until, a drought came upon the middle of the nation. Many farmers had little to no money because they couldn’t work. As a result of the drought, the topsoil
Illnesses, death, dangerous animals, severe storms that destroyed crops, droughts, and bad harvests were just some of the hardships that pioneers had to brave through. For immigrants migrating from foreign countries, the move was even more difficult. They not only came to a land where they do not know the native language, they also had to become acquainted with customs that they were unfamiliar with, such as how to farm the land and how to survive on very little. When they first moved to the mid-west, many immigrants had nothing but a small, inconvenient sod house to live in. Immigrants that decided to migrate to the mid-west from eastern America may have determined to do so because of religious reasons or to get a better opportunity to provide for their family.
The civil war took place in the 1800s. Approximately 620,000 people died in this war. Civil war medicine wasn’t very effective because diseases usually spread in reusing equipment. Due to lack of supplies and constant woundings, reusing equipment was required. Many woundings would just lead to amputations.
FEMA was established in 1979 when people started to complain that because of lack of resources country was not able to rescue or do them properly. In the case of Katrina in Louisiana, even though the FEMA was established they did not follow any plan to rescue the victims. People were trapped for many days without food and shelter, if only plans were implemented, lives would have been saved. The states did their entire job as they send so many letters to federal for help, but it was a federal responsibility to do the next step. Maybe because of miscommunication or misunderstanding planning were going really slow and people were blaming the government for the poor management and the states were blaming government and government were blaming states.
Slave homes were not supplied with the accommodations of their slave-owners. The housing that slaves resided in lacked features conducive to healthy living, slave’s homes were usually crowded with several generations residing in a small area on dirt floors. In addition, they were not supplied with outhouses instead they would often dig ditches (latrines) to handle urinary and bowel movements, which could contaminate water. Food preparation was also done in unsanitary conditions. Although slaves were provided with weekly rations of food that was thought to be sufficient for survival they were severely malnourished as their diet lacked in vitamin c, calcium, protein, iron and other essential minerals even after they added fruits, vegetables,
It usually involved the rotation of different activities across three large fields, As you may not all know the open field system may have worked for well for centuries and in 1750 and half of all farming in England still relied on this approach. But this system had a number of disadvantages. It was very unreliable because one third of the land was left unplanted each year, and the pathways separating the strip were not used for crops. Also weed and animal disease were spread easily as everyone was sharing the available land, finally with the open field system going on for centuries it made it difficult to introduce new agricultural methods to help grow crops because many people had to grow the same crops and work together all the
Wells can take water from millions of acres away. “Even if that means you are drawing water from beneath your neighbor’s property into your well.”(Khokha 3). People that don’t have wells feel like farmers are stealing most of their water. They are mad because they struggle to get their water and people with wells have more than enough. “You’ve got to put reasonable restrictions so people are only pumping out a reasonable amount of water that underlines their land.”(Khokha 3).
Our water supply has decreased, and the quality of water also declines during the severe drought. Moreover, our agricultural industries have lost a lot of money because they do not have enough water to plant their plants, so there are thousands of farm workers that have lost their jobs; the California state also loses a lot of their tax revenue from agricultural industries. Furthermore, our environment becomes unstable, especially due to the loss of wetland, it impact wildlife to migrate from the dry and hot places to better places. Some of the environment impacts are permanent and some are temporary. Because California has encountered a serious loss by drought, our local and state government passed several bills to have water regulated, drought reduces surface water and groundwater so quickly, and it is very crucial for the government and all citizens to start to save our environment and water for our next
