The soldiers who died due to being too sick to actually fight, died not because they were killed off, but because they were forced to endure the brutal and atrocious winter of Valley Forge. Another key factor as to why the soldiers in the Continental army should have left after their term was up because the help they should have received was not being given to them. The Committee of Congress came to Valley Forge to discuss with George Washington on what the soldiers need. However, once there, in the engraving by William Henry Powell, the Committee of Congress seems to be contemplating on helping the soldiers thus causing the soldiers to look angry. The soldiers in the picture were barefoot and had little clothing on than the Committee of Congress (Doc B).
The decision must be made. It would be so easy to leave and not have to deal with all the death. But it also would be hard because my freedom could rely on this decision and the Continental Army needs my help. Therefore, I choose to stay at Valley Forge, for there is a chance for me to not die of sickness because of the medical care, there is also patriotism, and people are willing to fight for our freedom. The documents A and C prove that only 14% died of sickness.

I believe that he left because he missed hunting. “I went into the army... but my real interest was always the hunt” (Connell 6). While he was in the army, he wasn't able to do what he loved most. He must have spent a great deal of time in the army to earn the title general. Nonetheless, it wasn't enough to keep him in the army.
The soldier hates the war, he says “I died in hell”, this implies that the honorable death that the young men believed in, was actually an inglorious death for an empty cause. All the soldiers received in return for their lives was a gilded name on a memorial tablet, where people probably wont even see it. He felt that the squire didn 't appreciate how much he risked for his country, for the people he loved, for the squire himself, "Two bleeding years I fought in France, for Squire: I suffered anguish that he 's never guessed".
