In fact, they struggled at the beginning of their arrival. The greatest challenges the Puritans had to face were the lack of medical supplies for illness, shelter, and food. During the voyage to the New World, the Puritans encountered multiple illnesses. This becomes challenging when there is no medical attention and not even the sailors would help them. In Of Plymouth Plantation, William Bradford states that during the voyage the sailors would only pity them and make fun of them, “He would always be condemning the poor people in their sickness and
Billington was not popular with the other settlers. He was not a member of the church, public office, and he lacked the ability to be one of the colony’s undertakers. Tensions were high due to Billington’s frustration with the colony. Matters were made worse when his son, John, died sometime between 1627 and 1630. Many believe that this was Billington’s tipping point.
In this town there was no respect for that which led the townspeople to close themselves off to anything that was not taught in the bible. It led Reverend Brown to lead the townspeople inadequately. The townspeople were relying on Reverend Brown to lead them and that is not wrong of them but the only problem here was that they did not know how to think for themselves. They were so closed minded to new ideas that everything outside the doctrine was wrong. To think freely is to be able to open your mind to new depths, it does not mean you have to agree to them or believe in them it just means that you are able to see out of the lense of someone
My source claims that poverty is a big problem in certain countries, yet most people aren't doing anything about it, they're too focused on themselves. Banksy claims that society is selfish and ungrateful. Mondays have become a big thing to be mad about anywhere, society seems to hate waking up early and doing work, yet in other countries people are dying due to lack of clean food. An argument that is linked with Idols of the tribe is society feeling like nothing is enough. Society feels that having to do tasks is just plain boring and makes life bad.
This demonstrates how the country’s economy suffered. It lost the territories where the sea ports stood. They were no longer able to trade as much as they did before. Because they couldn’t trade, they didn’t make money enough to keep its economy stable and
During his exploration he took his ships to Dominica and found the Leeward Islands and Puerto Rico, before arriving to Hispaniola.

Their is nothing saying the intentionally caused the famine, but they definitely didn’t help the situation. The government hid everything and worked very hard to “conceal the existence of the famine in Ukraine” from the world. They didn’t want people to know about the Famine which can imply that they knew something was wrong. Walter Duranty wrote “..saw empty houses that bear witness--people ran away to find work and food elsewhere” (Document C). Duranty visited Ukraine during the Famine.
It was this ignorance that led him to feel so disgusted with the natives that lived there because he did not understand their way of life. When the machines that he so greatly relied on were no longer of use, he had no knowledge to fall back on. He was completely dependent on a native girl,
Consequently, the land was unfertile and there were no trees to build houses or sea-worthy ships, and they were trapped on the deforested island. After all the natural resources had been depleted, the natives turned into savages. They blamed one another and destroyed statues which symbolized their civilization. They fought and the victors ate their dead enemies out of the belief that they would gain strength and power. The bones on the island provide evidence of their cannibalism.
The common agreement to what happened at Jamestown is the near Native American tribe, the Powhatans, were cruel, vial, and refused to help the struggling English who would almost die out because of malnourishment. Though the Powhatans refused to feed the malnourished English people, even with the English leader John Smith begging for help, the Indians felt threatened by the English because of their presence, weapons, and John Smiths threats. Therefore, the Powhatans cut off ties with the English for the fear of starting violence (Doc G). The “starving time” had nothing to do with Powhatans lack of help and originated in the lack of skill the English people had and the violent treatment to the Powhatans. The English were left with little experience
Elijah was frustrated about their dilemma, but alas he couldn’t do anything he wasn’t a great farmer, he wasn’t even a farmer at all so no money would come from his efforts. Bette would insist they try to raise money by selling household items or consider retrying farming, but it would only anger Elijah.
