Many businesses failed and were forced to close. The breweries, distilleries and saloons that closed impacted the worker much worse than most thought. Not only did the establishment workers lose their jobs, but so did thousands of barrel makers, truckers, waiters and other related trades. Even the California based grape industry was forced to close more than 700 wineries. The growers pulled up their vines thinking their industry had evaporated due to prohibition, creating an enormous shortage of grapes.
Many of the serfs died, so the remaining ones demanded higher wages. More effects of the plague were, that the lack of customers started to drive down the prices of items in stores, this ended the crusades because all the soldiers had died. It weakened the church’s power because people started to question their faith, and everyone blamed the jews for it.

They experienced drought from about 1561-1576,(Document B)This statement proves they had drought (which means lack of water). Settlers in Jamestown called winter the “starving time” because so many died due to
First of all, the great range of diseases made it almost impossible to stay healthy. “The diseases ranged from the measles, smallpox, mountain fever, and cholera, the biggest problem, leaving people dead in 2 hours” (Trinklein). This quote shows how there were many diseases, multiplying the travelers’ chances of death. Another piece of evidence that shows how life on the Oregon Trail was hard is the medical knowledge at the time. “Most people who died during the trip west became ill from disease which there was no cure at the time” (Underwood).
After a major uproar the students cause, the military questionably moves out, and the teenagers are left without any food for an extremely long while. After David may or may not "escape" from the school, and from his very-near death from the disease as his immunity diminished, we fast-forward a month or two, and are given a story primarily centered around Will and Lucy. It 's been forever since there was a supply drop in the Quad, and the population inside is majorly thinned. The established facility that the military had once controlled over to prevent students with the infection from leaving, but letting those free of it go through, was left suddenly abandoned, but the doors still being locked made it impossible to know from the outside. Suddenly,
In Document D it states that Magellan and his crew came out of the strait on November 28th and did not take in provisions for three months and twenty days after that. This was due to the amount of time it took to get to the Pacific Ocean, all the crew had 3 times a day was hardtack, and some yellow bad smelling water. This lead several of the crew members mouths to become swollen that they were in agony when it came to eating. Also because of the sicknesses the crew got, it lead to a pretty big amount of them dying. This Document Clearly shows how Magellan was selfish for not going to land for food, which was an option.
With all of this fear, how could Maximilien Robespierre possibly have a downfall? As the last two months of the terror came, the tyrant started to blame himself for the thousands of deaths. He passed the Law of the Twenty Second Prairial, which stated that all rights of the accused victim were washed away, making the executions go even faster (Linton). After the Committee of Public Safety passed this, Robespierre never attended another meeting. In his last few weeks, he rarely left his assigned room.
The loss of a great number of the populations, destruction of infrastructure, and homeless citizens that in some ways even caused more death, put Japan in a bad position. The Japanese government had to start from zero, meaning that it was necessary to rebuild everything, which caused the economy to invest money for years. Another reason that caused Japanese economy to go down was the fact that it was impossible to find a
Everyone I know is dying, the last 2 weeks have been a nightmare. It started with five Hoxton, Bricot, Pier, Geffrey and Geronim. After two days of being on the ship, they all fell ill with a terrible fever. They wouldn’t heal even after a week of resting, we knew something was terribly wrong when we saw the black boils. We moved all of the food and supplies out of the cellar and carried the disease ridden people into it and locked it.

Yellow fever is known to exterminate thirty thousand people yearly. Since dead bodies were everywhere on the ground volunteers would gather them and they would carry those who are dying as well. During this time period African Americans were required to give care to those who are ailing and on the verge of death. This took place after the population began to decrease and many started to leave the region of Philadelphia and a small amount of people were left for nurturing and interring jobs. To sum up, many thought due to the chill, aseptic atmosphere was the reason as to why the yellow fever fled.
This is something that is happening all over our world today. People who need assistance will never receive it because of their position. Many people die each day to things like diarrhea and the cold because they can’t afford a typical check up. “Based on poor access to health care, 1 billion people have no chance of ever seeing a doctor in their life (Infographic).” This is a fact that even pertains to people in America. Health care is a thing that a few in our world have access to.
It’s spring now and the winter was terrible let me tell you. There were 10 people dying every day from starvation or freezing to death or disease it was terrible.
