What horrible things did the continental army have to suffer in their six- month encampment? They experienced hunger, diseases, and death. Since it was cold some couldn 't bathe causing them to have bad hygiene. Also at the time smallpox and pneumonia was being spread. Since there weren 't many medical supplies, some couldn 't be treated.
Inside, the walls were whitewashed and the floor unpainted”(Steinbeck, 18). This simple and mundane description shows how austere life was. It also shows the hopelessness of George and Lennie with blank walls meaning an empty life. The dismal qualities of the landscape surrounding George and Lennie points out the hopelessness of man and their inability to change
There was not much medical knowledge. Soldiers didn’t have access to a dentist and so they suffered a lot of pain. 1.7 Venereal diseases During short holiday many soldiers came in contact with prostitutes. So they got venereal diseases with no chance of cure. The horror of syphilis was following the troops when the soldiers were returning at home.
“Deeply attached to their homeland and terrified by the difficulties earlier immigrants had encountered, many Cherokees made no preparation to leave (123).” They already had ceded most of their land yet they were still forced out of the last thing they had left, their home. Many have died and weren’t allow access to their traditional medicine because Americans denied their traditional practices, wanting them to be more “civilized”. Being held against their will, the US made their living situations unsurvivable and continued on doing so after they have reconstructed their society in the west. “Having taken the Cherokees’ land and forced them to march across a third of the continent, the United States now further threatened the Cherokees’ sovereignty and existence as a people (143).” As if taking their lives, nations, and spirits wasn’t enough, the government continued the unjust treatment on Indians after relocating. From the beginning to end, the government never kept their promises.
They slept and ate in uncomfortable places purposefully chosen to be as far as possible from their old homes. Personal relationships were discouraged, so were expressions of affection. People soon became weak from overwork and starvation, and after that fell ill, for which there was no treatment except death.Not only were those who died were dehumanized. People who escaped murder became unpaid laborers, working on minimum rations and for impossibly long hours. They slept and ate in uncomfortable places purposefully chosen to be as far as possible from their old homes.
The author uses a very strong angle of vision which hinders the article as a whole. In the article the author doesn’t acknowledge any other points of view he restricts his article to his view and his experiences only, making it difficult to believe in his point in general as he only uses his own angle of vision and only his experiences. The author’s experiences used in the article are very limited as he himself is only a spectator to the locker room talk. Mr. Dunn completely fails to even mention couples and females in the article confining his article to single men in their early adulthood, he also puts forth a very degrading and negative view of men in general failing to show that not all men are participant in this and making it seem as all men care about is their
In the time period they also had bad economy and they had no central government. Once Rome fell, no state or government united the people who lived in European. The population started dropping and some major settlements were abandoned. Within these three hundred long time, the hoi polloi of Hellenic Republic lived in small groups that moved constantly in accordance with their new pastoral life-style and livestock needs, while they left field no written record behind leadership to the decision that they were illiterate. Lifespan was undoubtedly harsh for the Greeks of the Dark ages.
Many people in the ghettos died of starvation or illness. There was a very small amount of food in the ghettos and they were very unsanitary. There were usually no showers or sources of water, so nobody could clean themselves or wash their hands. This lead to illness which spread very quickly in these tight, unsanitary places. The Warsaw ghetto was the largest ghetto during the Holocaust.
It was the Winter at Valley Forge. I am not going to re-enlist in the war because we have poor conditions, many people are dying, and we are getting very little support. The first reason I am not going to re-enlist in the war is because there were very poor conditions. In document C, the diary of Dr. Waldo, he says “Poor food-hard lodging-cold weather-fatigue-nasty cloaths-nasty cookery-vomit half my time…. why are we sent out here to starve and freeze?” They are dying out here of the poor conditions.
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.
During the jamestown period, there was seldom food to be found anywhere, which led the colony to acquire aid from the Native Americans. The Jamestown population would then slowly decrease due to disease, famine, and attacks from Natives. The one tribulation however that destroyed jamestown, was “starving time.” This period of starvation swept jamestown in the winter, which led most colonists to die, abandon their settlements, and/or return to England. Climate and war were but two common ordeals the colonists had to face traveling to America. Servitude was often another demanding ordeal faced by migrants.
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.
Evidence of this was when war factories shut down because war supplies were no longer needed now that the war had ended, this left many people unemployed (Canadian War Museum). This shows that World War I was a means of income and jobs for many people and as it came to an end so did their career and wealth. Similarly, after the soldiers returned from war, they had no jobs. This was the result of Canada’s fragile economy, which had difficulty employing and supporting demobilized soldiers and left many people jobless(Reilly, Skikavich). The nation as a whole was upset with the government, as they believed that it was the government’s duty to find a concrete solution for this problem (Reilly, Skikavich).
