Since there weren 't many medical supplies, some couldn 't be treated. The soldiers also slept in small canvas that was weak and didn 't, provide any protection from the snow. This resulted in them having diarrhea, dysentery, and fevers. With so many sicknesses going around about 2,000 out of 12,000 people died. George Washington tried to encourage the farmers to sell some of their food to the soldiers because they were short on supplies.

Also, because Salva’s shoes broke, he lost a toenail by hitting it on a rock and still had to keep walking. In addition to that pain, Salva had little water and food to keep him going. In fact, the only way he did was his uncle’s advice to take little steps at a time and Salva picturing himself with his family, who he doesn’t know where they are. As if that wasn’t
“Quitting leads to much less happiness in life than perseverance and hope.” (Page 117) -Salva Dut In Sudan the water is the hardest thing to get, imagine you going to walk 5 miles to get a 45lb water jug then put on your head and walk another 5 mile all the way back home but the water in jug is full of insects and bacteria that can make you sick or even death after while the natural water will dry up so you and your family have to move with it and you walk again for miles they hope to find water and they won’t get killed by humans or animals.

Many immigrants in The Jungle were depicted as often unable to even afford enough food to feed their families on a day to day basis, to the point where some people went digging in the dump for things to eat, “ To this place there came every day many hundreds of wagon-loads of garbage and trash from the lake front, where the rich people lived; and in the heaps the children raked for food”(p231). When they could afford food it was often full of chemicals, watered-down, or not even actual food. “How could they know that the pale-blue milk that they bought around the corner was watered, and doctored with formaldehyde besides?”(p86). However, the quality of the food Jurgis and his family were eating could be considered a small concern considering the other issues they dealt with, like their debt on the house. They were evicted after they missed payments on the houses they “bought”, resulting in them freezing to death in the winter, and the house being resold to another unsuspecting
The Gobi desert, high Himalayas, and the surrounding seas isolated China, which obviously and greatly impacted early civilization. In all the land that China offered, only a small amount of the land was able to support crops, the land in the North Plain. Naturally, early settlers chose this land where crops thrived because of the loess that was left there by floods that the Huang He caused. Since China is a land with many hills, they had to cut terraces into yellow slopes to create leveled land before being able to settle there. Because of the limited fertile land, early settlers could not raise any cattle so they did not eat meat very often.
Blues on the Mississippi I’d come to the conclusion, finally after a few hours of being on the river trying to fish for a week’s worth of food, we’d need to find somewhere else to place our camp and hunt for our fish. We picked up and wallowed across the shallow water, our dog soon behind us. We’d managed to make a couple of miles down, and found a decent little rock, that dropped off into the river. The fellow fishermen stole their glances towards our camp, though we easily dismissed it, seeing as how neither of us were having much luck out on the river or off of the bay. “Folks would’a been comin’ up to the town by now, Clarence.” “Mmph.” I mumbled back at Albert.
In the time period they also had bad economy and they had no central government. Once Rome fell, no state or government united the people who lived in European. The population started dropping and some major settlements were abandoned. Within these three hundred long time, the hoi polloi of Hellenic Republic lived in small groups that moved constantly in accordance with their new pastoral life-style and livestock needs, while they left field no written record behind leadership to the decision that they were illiterate. Lifespan was undoubtedly harsh for the Greeks of the Dark ages.
The government hoped that the internees could make the camps self-sufficient by farming, however the arid soil made this quite difficult. The lack of coal which in turn kept the internees cold at night while the desert camps led the internees to deal with extreme heat during the day. Some internees died due to inadequate medical care. Some even died due to the high level of emotional stress. If the internees attempted to flee, armed sentries, who stood watch 24/7, would shoot
After the West Coast eviction to the internment camps on March 24th, 1942, the Japanese Internment began. The inmates were prohibited from leaving their quarters, and restricted their movement as well as an added curfew for nighttime hours. The quality of the camp procedures greatly varied from location to location, but most location provided the minimum quality of life that would be granted a soldier with the lowest military rank. Other camps had no cooking or even plumbing facilities whatsoever, due to them being built on such short notice. The camps were often cramped, forcing over twenty people into living spaces that were meant for families of four.
The thousands of Indians in a month’s, went to hundreds in a weeks, and too few in a days. The federal government forced them to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Mississippi River. Some of the natives were crying that they had to leave their homeland, that they had many generations and traditions created. They made the journey to Indian territory on foot some, bound in chains and marched double file without any food, supplies or other help from the government. The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains.
