On the other hand, there were fewer diseases since the cold climate killed many of the germs. Although the weather and soil made it hard for the Puritans to farm, people could still grow some crops such as pumpkins and corn. Additionally, colonists also fished for food. However, in the Middle Colonies, there were many hills and flat lands.
However, many of the settlers focused a bit too much on the "find gold" part of their orders (being the most important part of course) because of this, few colonists focused on gathering food, leading to a lack of food for the colony to sustain itself. To combat this, Smith established a simple "tough love" policy, in simple terms, if you did not work, you did not eat. Smith also made trade agreements with the tribes under the leadership of Chief Powhatan. The colonists offered glass and metal goods to the Indians in exchange for food for the colony. Thanks to the actions of John Smith, things were looking great for the colony, however, "his (Smith's) strict leadership made enemies within and without the fort, and a mysterious gunpowder explosion badly injured him and sent him back to England in October 1609."
The people on the Mayflower were plagued by disease and weariness with many dying in the colony due to lack of clean drinking water and the low supplies of food. The Native Americans recognized the suffering of the colonists and offered them help in the establishing of their colony if they agreed to a few terms that were focused on not bringing war and injury to the Native Americans. The rocky soil of Massachusetts was not suitable for the planting of many crops, however the Native Americans understood how to plant corn in the soil of Massachusetts, so they shared this knowledge in order to give the colonists of Plymouth the agricultural production necessary to build a sustainable colony. Squanto showed the colonists where the most bountiful places to capture fish in order to supplement their corn diet with a protein along with using the fish as a fertilizer by burying the fish corpses in the rocky soil then planting the corn near to the fish in the newly
The soil and fertility of the land was different than what they had experienced in their homeland and therefore they struggled to find ways in which to make and grow food for themselves. They came during a terrible winter when it was extremely difficult to find anything from the land they could eat. In William Bradford’s “Of Plymouth Plantation,” it demonstrates how new food affected the lives of the colonists such as “digging up, found in them divers fair Indian baskets filled with corn, and some in ears, fair and good, of divers colours, which seemed to them a very goodly sight having never seen any such before”(11). Finding and exploring new food to eat affected the colonist because they now had to adapt and change their diet to fit the products that they could now harvest in their new home. They had to learn how to plant these crops and how to help them grow and harvest them.
Agriculturalists were usually healthy because they would grow crops and have food and eat a diverse diet and same thing with the hunter gatherers except they didn't have a big topic of food to choose from. Hunter gatherers and agriculturalists have okay things. They have what they need and that's good enough for them. Their different in some ways and the same in other ways. They live good for their lives.
Climate at the time was very important for them because it depended on their lives to either live a good life or a bad one. Climate is important for farming because “tells the farmers when the right time is to plant some of their crops when they need it” (National Climate Data Center). If the farmers did not know what climate was the farmers would not know what season it is and they would plant the wrong crops at the wrong time which means they would lose those crops. “In hot weather some crops can grow and those that are included are beans, corn,cucumbers, melons, peppers, and tomatoes. In the cold weather there are also some crops that can grow which are rice and sugarcane” (Bonnie Plants).
Silvopastoralism, which can be practiced in different ways, is one of the new techniques they are starting to adapt which will help them with water and soil quality. Silvopastoralism is the relationship between trees and pasture to create better livestock production. Around 54.9% of land in Mexico is used for
Fake Christmas trees also come in many different colors , like white green pink and black etc. Real Christmas trees are pretty nice , too but cutting trees down can hurt our environment. If our pollution and oxygen does down it can hurt others . It can hurt the ones far away also , and animals can also get hurt and also their homes. Real Christmas trees take up a lot more pollution than a fake Christmas tree.
Slaves were sometimes provided old and tattered pots and pans for cooking. Proper nutrition was scarce in the diet of the slaves. Their diet lacked adequate quantities of vitamins, minerals, was deficient in protein and fat, and short on several B vitamins, vitamin A and possibly vitamin C; there were also iron other mineral deficiencies, which prevented their bodies from functioning efficiently. In the popular song sung by field slaves as shown below, it shows that the whites discriminated them when giving them food which were of small amount, but was considered enough for
Without this the natives would have been forced to live in a more congenial environment. Mesa Verde may seem very similar to the parks surrounding it, but it is unique and amazing in its own right. It is hard to imagine that something like a tiny change in incline, precipitation, or temperature fluctuation might make a landscape look completely different. In this case an entire civilizations home and way of life would be drastically changed.
During the Great Depression, farmers did not have the help of electrical equipment on the farm. They had to do everything by hand, which took longer periods of time and workers were tired out more easily. Electrical lights were also a great help because, instead of having dangerous lanterns that had an open flame, farmers could feel safer and wouldn’t have to worry about the dangers of lanterns. “Although most parts of the U.S. economy prospered during the 1920s, the decade proved to be a harsh, lean time for farmers. ”(US
Both the Han and Romans thought that technology was necessary. It helped make life easier for both civilizations. However the Han admired technology and believed it was a gift from enlightened leaders; and the Romans believed that the creators were common and “vulgar”. Both groups believed that technology was necessary, and they used it to advance their society.
A good portion of the world population has, at one time or another, kept a journal or diary of the events in their life. When that person is famous, or the events recorded in that journal turn out to be a major historically significant event, other people are interested in reading those journals and diaries. Among the most interested in these writings have been historians. Historians have relied heavily on personal letters, diaries, journals, and even hastily written notes to piece together our history. Without these personal writings, history as we know it would be very different.
Nicole Soelimto Professor Antonn Michael June 4, 2017 Final Exam Paper: Plantation Mistresses Plantation mistresses had varying roles in the Antebellum era. Living in the antebellum South, they supported the institution of slavery for it alleviated them from domestic chores and improved their status in the society. Through slavery, the plantation mistresses could portray the ultimate housewife because they did not have to carry out manual labor commonly associated with their domestic duty. They proved to be essential to the plantation economy in the South, especially because they undertook the organizational roles. When the slaveholders were committed elsewhere, their wives took over.
