They would rather not care about the food and use the room for their precious cargo to make more of a profit. The ship had very cramped conditions that had led to infection and disease. “An increase in the number of decks and men and the amount of supplies inevitably translated into cramped sleeping and living conditions for the crew, poor ventilation, and a subsequent increase in infectious diseases and respiratory conditions.” Not having enough space for food meant that it would be very cramped in the ship the sailors we’re extremely close together and that led to infection for the sailors. The sailors also didn’t have much of a proper place to sleep so they had to sleep on hammocks. In my opinion I think that the sailors we’re treated very unfairly.
A soldier dreaded being on the battlefield more than being in the field hospital, right…? Field hospitals were usually very, very crowded. There were never enough beds for everybody and people that couldn’t get a bed were laid outside of the hospital on the ground. Doctors were always overworked and went to the soldiers who needed the most help first. So, if you had a broken bone, chances are you would be stuck waiting for hours and maybe even days.
Reasons people would mistake indentured servants for slaves was because both were considered low in society, did not own many belongings, were not given much food or clothes, were shipped and both looked very similar in standards/appearance. Some see indentured servants as glorified butlers and people don’t realize that indentured servants had to go through a lot of the same trauma that slaves had to endure. Indentured servants and slaves had to be transported on ships. The voyage was often a horrible experience for all the passengers. On the ships the inmates had to sleep side by side each other with not much room to move.
The Patriots were feeling defeated after the first 2 years of war, and the makeshift Pennsylvania winter camp didn 't add to their spirits. Valley Forge was a tough time for the American Army, and many soldiers wanted to quit because of the hardships. If I were a soldier, I would have quit Valley Forge for a multitude of reasons. The living conditions were inadequate, there was a minimal amount of supplies, and illness and death was common in the camp. In essence, the cons of staying at Valley Forge outweighed the Pros.
What would you do if your town started to come down with a fever that no one knew what it was? The reasons why I think that the author used “all was not right” for this chapter is because they knew something was going around and that they did not know what was going on. One reason I think that he used that is because people was getting sick and dying everyday and that they didn’t know what was going on so that they called in a better Dr. not saying that the Dr.’s that they had was not good but he had more practice than what they did. Another thing is that people’s systems was getting worse and they did not know who to stop it and they tried everything that they could. They don 't know what 's causing it but when the people get whatever is going around they start to get a fever, shake, their eyes and body starts to turn yellow, and then they start coughing up blood and then the blood sooner than later turns into and black choky stuff.
As the war continued, it took a physical and psychological toll on the soldiers involved. The average age of the soldiers was 21, and a third of them were drafted. Soldiers began to distrust their government and their reasons for being there. They lost unit morale and grew irritated. During this time period, many soldiers began looking for methods to help them forget the horrors and tragedies they saw in battle.
Prime Minister R.B. Bennett had not provided adequate funding for the camps(1). The inhabitants were fed nasty food and had bad living conditions (7). One male who spent time in the Canadian relief camps stated that he felt as if he was enslaved in the camps because he had nowhere to go and was essentially obligated to stay at the camp (2). The wages were poor and he hated the manner in which the camps were run.
There were times though when even the most highly trained soldiers were not prepared for, which were the times of casualties and loss. Sometimes it would be minor casualties such as getting lost, or maybe a train robbery. Although that might not like a small issue, in reality items from a train can be recovered, and on most occasions when soldiers from any side got lost, they eventually found their way. No soldier though was prepared for very dark events, such as death, fatal injuries, diseases, harsh weather, hunger, sleep depression, even rough terrain. Anyone who was part of any war will tell you how awful it was, whether it was a victory or not.
This weakened the natives in war as they had very little men to send to resist the colonists. Those who were captured were enslaved and after the war the word “Pequot” was outlawed. Along with disease and weak immune systems the natives were plagued by death for the next few centuries. In conclusion, both Native Americans and New England colonists were affected by colonialism because of the various of actions they both experienced. Both were affected by false peace,
Unlike a natural disaster, servicemen prepare for war, but the actual battle field is a lot different from the practices and organized society the servicemen are used to, so this experience can have some effects on the brain. Death of a loved one can cause Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder because it is for someone to live without a person who used to be very frequent
