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.
Another reason why people might think Lacks faced more adversity is because she was poor and faced racial discrimination. Although she did face adversity in these situations it does not compare to having to walk through a frozen tundra without food and in constant danger of becoming a human popsicle. Who would you say faced more adversity a women who only had to die to face adversity, or a man who walked aimlessly in the antarctic without food or water and was in constant danger of
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. As Waldo also questioned, “Why are we sent here to starve and freeze? I can no longer endure it (Doc C). I am willing to admit that I am a summer soldier, as Thomas Paine wrote (Doc D). I’ve already risked my life for this country; now it is someone else’s turn.
Due to the damp conditions trench foot occurred, leaving the soldiers to lose a foot or even both. Because of these hard and damp conditions, it was very hard for the soldiers to rejuvenate in the trenches. Hot food was very rare as there was no time to heat it up. Many soldiers had the luck of pabulum and warmth to perpetuate them in the fight. The trenches were very tight and often there were over 10 men in them at a time.
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.
The internal conflict was expressed more so in the midst of the story when the main character started his hike up to camp to find the boys and he realized it was a lot colder than he thought. During this time he remembered the old man from Sulphur Creek who told him about the weather previously before and that he shouldn’t go alone. The internal conflict came at an climax when the man realized he could freeze to death since he was not able to start a fire and his method of beating his hands to spark a feeling of sensation didn’t work. He was at anger with himself when he realized he was at fault with this predicament he was in, and coming to an end he accept his fate of death and died lying in the snow. This story relates to the societal message that people need people, if the main character would have just had someone with him he could of survived and would’ve made it back to camp, but he decided to go alone and being alone is what ended his
The wind had an extra chill today, the sun hadn’t come out in days.The snow is probably up to my knees and it 's still falling.As we arrive in the small town many people lead us to a small tent where a man is sitting. “Sacajawea?”The man says with a weird look on his face. “Yes?”As I turn around I notice it 's my brother, Cameahwait. As we get into conversation I bring up our parents he sighs and says.”They died a few years ago?” As I start to think about all of my other family members he says”Almost everyone died in the attack.” “What attack,”I asked Everyone just stared at me as I start to get emotional about everything I just heard.As I started to think I was interrupted by Cameahwait.”Another tribe came and set fire to our
However, each time Victor faces the monster he created he becomes very ill and passes out and then falls into a sickness for months. When he wakes from these illnesses his creation is gone and has “traveled somewhere else”, or Victor’s just hallucinating at certain times which is when the creation disappears. This theory makes sense due to the fact that in the book the creature travels to the mountains by foot very easily and travels around various places. Any human wouldn’t be able to travel through the mountains in those conditions with the minimal clothes and food that he had. According to “How Humans Deal With and Survive Extreme Cold” ,by Paul Ward, in the cold with no protection and with the condition Victor’s creation was already in his cells should’ve died due to the blood flow loss and should’ve resulted in at least severe frostbite.
Frostbite is the number one hazard for these people in the winter, followed by illnesses from the cold and hypothermia sometimes resulting in death. Homeless people often worry about freezing to death, reported by many homeless people themselves. A homeless man in New York City states "Life is hard because of the things that I have to go through, just trying to survive, you know, trying to put food on the table so to speak,” he says. “Winter makes a lot of things rough for me... It’s too cold. I don’t have the proper gear...
He takes a risk that could either pay off mightily or possibly send him to his death. The Man is lead to a yukon territory that is extremely cold. He is isolated from all people and only has a dog making the journey with him. It is clear that the temperature becomes the man's enemy, “Fifty degrees below zero meant 80 degrees of frost. Such facts told him that it was cold and uncomfortable, and that was all.
The Cherokees were forced to drag the wagons out of the muddy roads. Death became a daily occurrence because of the road conditions, winter distress, and illness. The government only provided a single blanket to each Indian as shelter from the cold wind of the winter. The ill-equipped Cherokees were trapped beside the frozen Mississippi River with many of them dying of pneumonia. Starvation and malnutrition made the Cherokees more prone to diseases like cholera, dysentery, and smallpox.
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.
