Since ancient times, Smallpox has devastated the world, killing millions of people. Often referred to as the speckled monster, the smallpox disease originated in the new world when Spanish and Portuguese conquistadors and early English settlers arrived in the Americas. Although there had been attempts to cure the disease, including variation, (that came from Asia 2,000 years ago), they all had a high risk of death. It wasn’t until 1796, when Edward Jenner, a English paleontologist came up with a new form of vaccine, it was called inoculation. The disease decimated the local population and was one of the main reasons for the fall of the Aztec and Inca empires.
The colonists barely made it through winter as they had assistance with all necessary aid by the six or seven people who were immune of diseases. Only fifty out of one hundred colonists have survived the time of suffering. In the article, “Colonial America Depended on the Enslavement of Indigenous People”, Marissa Fessenden states, “In 1637, they burned a village on the banks of the Mystic River in southeastern Connecticut, killing 400 to 700 Pequots.” The colonists had murdered natives by destroying their homes and territory. During the Pequot war, many of their tribe members were lost. This weakened the natives in war as they had very little men to send to resist the colonists.
With them came smallpox, measles, chicken pox, influenza, and many other diseases. “Before the arrival of Columbus, Native American disease wasn’t dominant in the land. Due to the lack of exposure of disease in their younger years, Native Americans were vulnerable to the European diseases that would come with the Columbian Exchange. The diseases would soon destroy many societies of the ancient Aztec, Maya, and Inca. Through many estimates it is foreseen that alien diseases caused over 50% deaths of the Native American population.
Causes of the civil war Slavery: The burning issue of slavery caused many problems that threatened the nation and its people. The northern and southern states fought for different motives during the war. The south wanted to succeed and create a confederation under their own constitution. The south was all about slavery and their economy depended on it. Slaves ran the plantations and were able to be sold to pay off debts.
Another item is religion, speech, voting, women 's rights, races, and slavery. These are all examples of ways freedom is expressed. In generations when slavery was popular, there were zilch amounts of freedoms for the slaves. Slaves would be forced to do cruel jobs and they would work so much they would have an extremely high risk of death. No freedom for slaves back then resulted in death for most.

History of the Irish immigration to the United States is rich and can be divided into several important periods. Between the years of 1845 and 1855, more than 1.5 million Irish adults and children left the country for America, in search for the refuge. The reasons for such an influx were numerous: many Irish were desperately poor, and many were suffering from starvation and disease. One of the most widely spread reasons was the so-called Potato Famine. It killed more than 1 million people in five years and caused great acrimony and anger at the British for providing too little help to their Irish subjects.
And when it goes to the hands of the wrong people who believes that violence is the divine direction to attract many followers, then religion can lead to extreme immortality. Religious extremists’ doings generates fear and hostility among refugees which caused them to leave their homes. An example would be from the Christian-Muslim conflict in Central African Republic that occurred in last year. “Almost 5 million people were affected by the conflict that thousands have died from the merciless massacre between the Christian and Muslim war fighters. There were 440,000 refugees that fled their country and 190,000 have escaped to neighbouring countries such as Cameroon, Chad, the Democratic ,the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo in order to not be harmed by the armed conflict.” (Onyulo T., April 2012).
