It was the Winter at Valley Forge. I am not going to re-enlist in the war because we have poor conditions, many people are dying, and we are getting very little support. The first reason I am not going to re-enlist in the war is because there were very poor conditions. In document C, the diary of Dr. Waldo, he says “Poor food-hard lodging-cold weather-fatigue-nasty cloaths-nasty cookery-vomit half my time…. why are we sent out here to starve and freeze?” They are dying out here of the poor conditions.
No meat!” This tells how us soldiers have been starving for quite a while now, and most of us are done dealing with the hardships. As Waldo also questioned, “Why are we sent here to starve and freeze? I can no longer endure it (Doc C). I am willing to admit that I am a summer soldier, as Thomas Paine wrote (Doc D). I’ve already risked my life for this country; now it is someone else’s turn.
The conditions were horrible for the soldiers and they were dying out. So would I have quit? I probably would have quit at Valley Forge. By December of 1777, there around 12,000 soldiers left in the Continental Army. By February of 1778, there were only 8,000 soldiers left.
At times, Victor almost makes it clear that he has given up, ready to commit suicide. When the creature is at a higher point, Victor is at a lower point, suffering with fevers and cold chills. Physically, when Victor is drained, his body is exhausted too. He goes through so much trying to avenge the death of those the creature has murdered that his body can’t take it anymore. Regretting his choices, Victor cries, “...tears, the first I had shed for many months, streamed from my eyes, and I resolved not to fall before my enemy without a bitter struggle.” Contemplating suicide, Victor realizes that his life has become empty.
As they straggled back , they passed General Lee, who stated “It is my fault” (History.net). In conclusion, this battle was the turning point of the war. With this Confederate loss, it forced the British to not help them in the war, leaving them with no other help. This battle also took the lives of half of General lees army. Although both sides took major casualties, the south took the worse of the two.
It is clear, that after their racing career is over, the animals are worthless, useless, and unwanted to their owners. So, instead of wasting the money the horse has earned the cheapest way is to send them off to wherever they want. Which, is not a nice home, it is a death home. Living as an animal in the racing industry is difficult exhausting. From endless suffering and injuries, being injected and digesting illegal pills, and if you fail you are thrown out of the industry and killed for multiple usages.
They slept and ate in uncomfortable places purposefully chosen to be as far as possible from their old homes. Personal relationships were discouraged, so were expressions of affection. People soon became weak from overwork and starvation, and after that fell ill, for which there was no treatment except death.Not only were those who died were dehumanized. People who escaped murder became unpaid laborers, working on minimum rations and for impossibly long hours. They slept and ate in uncomfortable places purposefully chosen to be as far as possible from their old homes.
Many people in the ghettos died of starvation or illness. There was a very small amount of food in the ghettos and they were very unsanitary. There were usually no showers or sources of water, so nobody could clean themselves or wash their hands. This lead to illness which spread very quickly in these tight, unsanitary places. The Warsaw ghetto was the largest ghetto during the Holocaust.
Such facts told him that it was cold and uncomfortable, and that was all. It did not lead him to consider his weaknesses as a creature affected by temperature.” (London 65). He is trekking through cold snow with limited resources and no one nearby to help. Frederick Douglass is born in Maryland where he is forced into slavery and must deal with white men treating him poorly. His first owner is harsh and repeatedly abuses Douglass.
The death of his friend Tebbe a few months later also caused Jünger great pain. He questioned how his friend “of noble qualities” with whom he had shared the majority of his war experience, could have died (Jünger, p. 216). While these events certainly brought about a change in Jünger’s tone from excited to weary, the battle he called the “Great Battle,” was the final turning point. On one of the first
There were a lot of poverty. They had no heat to be warm at winter time, they had cardboard coverings as their homes; the card board houses were not strong enough for the weather they had. The houses had holes and also numerous amounts of people had to stay in one household. A lot of the Natives used alcohol and drugs. They did not have enough money to
Frostbite and Smallpox have played a big part here at Valley Forge. Frostbite has gotten many people’s limb taken off. Because of this, a lot of soldiers have gotten sent home because they aren’t gonna be able to fight in battle.
The aftermath of warfare is never positive. Throughout history warfare has negatively impacted society and those living in it. The end of World War I led to a period of unrest in Canada because of rising unemployment, the spreading of the Spanish Flu and increasing negative treatment towards women. Rising unemployment after World War I, led to much tension amongst Canadians. Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum).
Would you ever think about staying at Valley Forge? At Valley Forge George Washington, General of his army, is surrounded with his troops. Some troops are ill, some are still in good condition, and for the rest their journey had already ended. So with that being said, would I stay at Valley Forge? My answer is no because of the bad conditions.
