1. There are many accusations of who was responsible for the smallpox outbreak in Fort Pitt, during the summer 1763. Many of the Native Americans accused the British soldiers of being responsible for the outbreak. There is suspension that Jeffery Amherst, the British commander in chief, knew of smallpox infected blankets being given to Natives by the end of June. William Trent is also credited with writing an account of the event in his diary.
He brought back precious metals, animals, and disease back and forth between continents. 6. Columbian exchange was the exchange of animals, crops and some resources between the New and Old world. During the Columbian exchange the European brought diseases to Native Americans and it a killed a lot of people. These included Tuberculosis, measles, cholera, typhus, and smallpox.
“Ring-a-round the rosie/ A pocket full of posies/ Ashes! Ashes!/ We all fall down!” This children 's nursery rhyme refers to the gruesome and devastating Bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death, that ravaged most of Europe during the 14th century. The first line refers to the swelling of the lymph node which was the first of the symptoms. Next came the atrocious odor that was emitted as the victim’s condition worsened. Healthy individuals used flowers or posies to cover the odor.
Black death VS Swine flu (H1N1) Black death and Swine flu were similar.The Black Death was one of the most devastating pandemics (disease) in human history, resulting in the deaths of one 3rd population of Europe in the years 1346–53. Both of diseases are spread by animals. Both diseases kills a huge amount of people and Both diseases change the society by killing their people. The Black Death is originated in Central Asia, where it then travelled along the Silk road. It was most likely carried by Oriental the black rats.Black Death, now known as the plague, is spread by a bacillus (bacteria) called (Yersinia pestis).A French biologist Alexandre Yersin discovered this Bacterial cell in 19th century.From the research of Alexandre Emile Jean
Spanish Flu Jaden Morrow I am going to be talking about the Spanish Flu in 1918. One of the questions I was asked to answer was how did the Spanish Flu enter the United States. The Spanish Flu originally came from Spanish and when they traveled over to America it spread to the Native Americans. Once it reached them everyone started getting it and a bunch of people died and they didn’t really know why. That is what I know about the Spanish Flu.
The final major outbreak of the Plague was known as The Great Plague of London which occurred in the 1600’s. The first outbreak called the Justinian Plague ripped through the Middle East and Asia killing tens of millions of people. This outbreak changed society at the time and the rebuilding
The black plague was one of the most depressing points in history. It occurred during the mid-fourteenth century and wiped out much of the muslim and christian society. During the time of the black plague, Europe and the Middle East were faced with different responses to the pre-plague, during the plague and after the plague. The bubonic plague had an impact on many religions and even for those who did not believe. These doubters had come up with various reasons why that were not religious.
We’ve seen symptoms of malaria since The Ancient Egyptian ( around 1500 bc ) and The Ancient Greek times (around 413 B.C ). It is a parasitic disease that involves high fevers, shaking chills, flu like symptoms and anemia. In this essay, I will compare what malaria was like during The Revolutionary War and what it is like now, in the modern age. The word “Malaria” derives from from the Italian for “bad air”. During the revolutionary war, Malaria was all over the American South.
The arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas in 1492, started what may be described as a wave of infectious disease and death. With the discovery of the New World came a flood of colonist and conquistadors. As the Europeans explored and discovered foreign unknown lands, the natives had to deal with a foreign matter of their own. “Europeans and the African Slaves they brought inadvertently carried bacteria and viruses across the Atlantic that Native Americans had never encountered.”(Campbell, 2008, p.3). This wave of migration for the Eastern Hemisphere to the Americas changed the way disease affected the lives of thousands of natives.
The major diseases that affected the people in this assigned population and time period are small pox, measles, malaria, influenza, typhus and numerous of other diseases that killed thousands of people often in tandem. Nonetheless, with the foreigner’s arrival the course of history change; to begin with, the aching bones, high fever, burning chest, abdominal pain, consumption, and the headaches all erupted as signs, symptoms, and threats to mortality (Anderson, 2007, p. 148). However, an ancient idea regarding the causation and spread of diseases contemplated that air did not act as a medium for the spread of disease; rather air itself contained miasma or pollutant. Still, medical science deals with the human body in terms of health and its
