During the winters of 1777 and 1778, there was freezing weather and a couple thousand of sick soldiers and dead soldiers (Busch, 147). Many soldiers are not re-enlisting or are deserting before their nine-month re-enlistment has ended. General Washington, desperate to keep an army together to fight the war against Britain has asked us soldiers look into our hearts and ask ourselves the following question: Will you quit? To quit would be to not re-enlist. I have decided to not re-enlist for three reasons which are high chances of illness, horrible lodging and weather, and sparse food and clothing.
Things have become so atrocious that George Washington had to ask the Congressional Committee for more money. I doubt they have any to give, for they are more focused on the bigger picture, rather than a few deteriorated soldiers (Doc B). Dr.Waldo wrote in his journal, “A general cry thro’ the camp this evening among the soldiers, “No meat! No meat!” -The distant vales echoed back the melancholy sound- “No meat! 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.
People want to overcome all difficulties by hope. Therefore, heroes might have courage to face the death. Out of the hope of having a brighter future, people also tend to have denial of the reality of death (we do not want to talk about our death or we deny the death of others that are closed to us). Such denial cannot be explained properly in terms of psychological and moral aspects. According to Berger, any kind of hope as long as it is personal implies an ultimate rejection that is the rejection to death even if it is just an illusion based on human nature.
Since the Colonist were on the losing side, in the beginning, they started to lose hope in winning the war. The colonial army started to decline and weaken because there was no point in fighting a war that unattainable to win. The colonists were now caught in a dilemma to continue fighting for the colonial army with a greater likelihood of losing or surrender to the British and continue being ruled under them. Since the war was near the brink of ending many of the colonists thought they were going to lose the war so they left the colonial army, but some stayed and continued
Although there are a few things I feel very strongly about I don 't think I would go to the extent of dying for the idea. If I did feel strongly about a topic I would definitely try to fight for the idea that I believed, but if death were to be brought to the table I would probably just back down unless I was 110% into the idea that my stance would do something good. In history, there have been plenty of people that died for their ideas. The first that comes to my mind would be Nathan Hale. The idea he fought for was the freedom of his country.
Unlike “Conscientious Objector”, “Flander’s Fields” is spoken from the point of view of dead soldiers. The soldiers want the people they have left behind to carry on in their absence and continue fighting the good fight. Although the message of this poem may be inspiring, it can be discounted because we have no knowledge of what the afterlife is like or what the dead may think. “Conscientious Objector” is the more inspiring poem because it is the tale of human courage against a seemingly unstoppable force, and sometimes a little courage is all people need in
The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains. The natives were very cold and they were hungry; thousands of people died along the way. The constitution which was written in 1787, it states in the 5th amendment that is also part of the Bill of Rights, “ nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation”. No one can use or take someone 's property without the permission. The United States went against their own rights, they took away property from the natives, because they needed to expand, without even conversing with them.
Instead of fighting back, Shmuel complies with the conflict peacefully. Fighting back against Lt. Kotler would have taken a lot of strength, which Shmuel did not have. In “The Diary of Anne Frank”, Anne writes, “A call-up: everyone knows what that means. Visions of concentration camps and lonely cells raced through my head. How could we let Father go to such a fate?
I agree with the part about the money should be spent on domestic problems and not war, because the country should be the focus and the country should help the poor. America would not give funds up to support the poor, because of the war that was going on. I believe that they should have gave some funds to the poor to help them in troubling times. I also did not understand why blacks and white were still separated, but they would kill and die together in war. It is not right to separated humans.
Despite it obvious advantages, some opponents claim that conscription should not be mandatory because serving in the military can sharply change a man 's identity in ways that can hurt his social ties; it can influence on his relation to family, companions, and coworkers. It may be true that military has impact on the person 's personality, makes little bit tough to deal with him. However, people should realize the fact that dealing with the hard days and wars need brave men that have the ability to face these issues strictly, with courage and without fear. Beside, recruitment period is for a limited time; not exceeding three years term, and after this period expires, the recruiter returns to his social life and relations, also gradually resume his normal attitude in dealing with others. Moreover, it is important to remember that the intent of recruiting is to prepare men psychologically and physically for any
It has been freezing cold and I am starving to death(Powell 149). We came to Valley Forge thinking we had enough food. But have ended up barely having enough food to last us a few days. Having no food has been very tough because we are all exhausted and in pain all the time. Even when we do get food, we get small portions that will last for about a day.
Stay for More or Leave from Sore As I sit in my cabin freezing cold, scared, and hungry, myself wonders, “Is there still any hope”? The huts were long and wide made of wood. The fireplace was filling the huts with smoke that we almost could not handle. There were no beds just the mud floor covered with straw. My service to the army at Valley Forge is soon ending.I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are: Hope, the army needs me, and for my family and the hope of surviving.
As grueling and terrifying as a three day battle sounds you 're not much off. If you were here in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania the sight is not pretty . Being there was horrible seeing the thousands of people dead is a horrifying sight and not one you would want to live to see. This was one of the bloodiest fights and the most memorable . In the last three days the Union showed that we’re a competitor and that we’re going to stand, and not back down.
