The plague occured in the United States in 1900(“Plague”1). In the United States Bubonic formed all over the country and people were scared and confused There were rats that sneak onto the steamboats and get people affected. New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, California, Oregon, and Nevada are impacted today by the plague(“CDC”). The plague occurs in the wild. If untreated, people still can die from the plague, which in the United States occurs in the wild(“Plague Occurs”).
When the victim is bit by the flea the toxins drain to the nearest lymph node and swells to a tumor or a bubo. The average time to die with the bubonic strain of the plague is twenty-three days whereas the plague bacteria can break out into the bloodstream causing septicemic strain of Black Death (historytoday.com).The septicemic strain of Black Death is far worse than the bubonic plague it spreads the bubos to other parts of the body, the septicemic strain causing the pneumonic plague therefore this strain is the most dangerous. You could breathe the air of the infected and be dead within two days (The Black
Therefore, strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them". But this is an ironic thing to think as the Bible has 842 verses that are cruel or violent (roughly 3%). Christians feared the Muslims because of this teaching calling for war against non-believers and as a result of this teaching Muslims were killing Christians and other religions in the Middle East. So the first justification was that the Christians should retaliate and kill them in return. The second justification was that these “barbarians” had taken territory belonging to the Christians especially holy sites such as Jerusalem.
Slavery and the Holocaust has a lot of similarities. Some similarities are people were mistreated because of their race/religion. Both slavery and the Holocaust were tortured or beaten in some kind of way. Some lives were even taken. I think that Slavery would be worse fate because it lasted a very long time.
The medical division of the Freedmen’s Bureau provided hospitals and doctors for newly freed people but their racist ideologies followed them, “... many Bureau physicians seemed to harbor beliefs that black people were inherently inferior and susceptible to certain illnesses…”(19). The medical professionals that were meant to aid emancipated slaves took a bias approach that made them incapable of actually helping them. These beliefs continued and the wide spread disease and illness that plagued newly freed slaves led some to believe that African Americans were ill-equipped to handle freedom (Roberts 633 of 4234). Despite the inaccuracy of this belief, it goes to show how the ideology of the United States was not prepared for the emancipation of slaves. This resulted in unequal services, segregated housing and inequalities in political representation which contributed to overall health inequities but more importantly it contributed to the foundation of the problems that Americans face
In the Elizabethan Era there were multiple ways men and women could meet death. Many people were hit by history’s most famous plague-- The Bubonic Plague. The unintelligence of society was a major contributor to many deaths during this era. No one understood that when crimes happened there was punishment, that also led to multiple deaths for people in this time period. Diseases seemed to have wiped out most of the population in the Elizabethan Era.
The Black Death (Plague of 1348) had a deep and lasting impact on Medieval Europe for a variety of reasons. First of all, the Black Death influenced the way people lived in Medieval Europe. People formed communities, isolated from each other. Men and women also abandoned their cities, houses, dwellings, relatives, property, and went abroad. It is clear that they believed that God would have mercy on them if they fled, or that the Plague would decline outside of the city walls.
Prejudice and hate for the Jewish people also developed notably during the time of the Bubonic plague. A common belief amongst many Christians was that the plague was punishment from God. To atone for their sins, religious cults such as the flagellants, who aimed to appease God and stop the plague, developed. The Flagellants would march through
Their numbers were small, they were very indepented on western Europe for supplies and soldiers. The havoc the zealous crusaders brought on the local populations, especially the Jewish communties, made them hated by all groups throughout the religon. Document 7 states that to make matters worse, the crusading knights often abused and committed atrocities against eastern orthdoxs Christians, Jews and Muslims sin the areas through which they passed. This is important because crusading knights often abused the Easten Orthodox Christains and Jews and Muslims in the oars they passed, which is a negative impact in the crusades Document 6 states that the 4th crusade was a wasteful and destructive even that resulted only in further dividing the Christian world. Pope Innocent 11, the crusade did not attract the support expected.This is important because this is in Constaniople in 1204, the Venetians, who had been hired to transport the crusaders, and the knights agreed to attack the Byzantine capital instead.
This evidence showcases that Europe was in a dark age because of The Black Death, Crusades and the Government The Black death is one of the reasons why Europe was in a dark age. At least 1/3rd of the population of Europe had died; it was also in a dark age because the people in Germany thought that it was the Jews that had started this disease and kill most of them and once they killed most of them they realized that it wasn 't the Jews that started this and it still came and infected the people in Germany. Really the black rats and fleas were the main cause of the black death spreading. This is the story of how it started. It all started in Asia with a creature known as the flea.
The Black Death had a big impact on European religion. Because people could not understand the plague, they strongly believed that the plague was a punishment sent by God. The church claimed that God was punishing people because of the sins they have committed. They organized religious marches and told people to pray to get rid of the horrible disease. However, around 1348, Christians started accusing the Jews of bringing and spreading the plague to Europe.
