The soldiers who died due to being too sick to actually fight, died not because they were killed off, but because they were forced to endure the brutal and atrocious winter of Valley Forge. Another key factor as to why the soldiers in the Continental army should have left after their term was up because the help they should have received was not being given to them. The Committee of Congress came to Valley Forge to discuss with George Washington on what the soldiers need. However, once there, in the engraving by William Henry Powell, the Committee of Congress seems to be contemplating on helping the soldiers thus causing the soldiers to look angry. The soldiers in the picture were barefoot and had little clothing on than the Committee of Congress (Doc B).
Ya it is kind of hard for me and my family because my dad has infection and his ankle broke a year ago, his shoulder was broke at about 2 years ago and it still not fully healed. Now his heart is skipping beats. His one lung is all scared and his other lung might be getting that bad too. I just wish the doctors would figure him out. It is hard because my dad has lost over 65 pounds in less than a weak.
The german soldiers did not know Billy or Weary but they were fated to that would have tragic results.” Consequently, Vonnegut drives his point with the final event of Roland Weary’s death. Vonnegut absently writes “ Roland Weary died of Gangrene caused by his mangled feet.” (Vonnegut 79) Roland Weary, the “hero”, died of a foot infection and was tossed out of a train. Vonnegut included this detail to show that no matter where you go or what lies you buy into you can’t escape the reality you
So Bear did the only logical thing and ran away from the Convent. This shows Crispin that you can change your life and your fate. Unfortunately, Crispin still belittles himself and even says that he is nothing because he has no name, no family, no one who even cares about him and that so many people want to kill him. Crispin says many things like this throughout the book like when Bear gives him the choice of going with him to Great Wexly Crispin insists that he can’t make the choice because he’s just a servant. Also during this time Bear teaches Crispin that work does pay off in the end shown here “Honest pay for honest work.
He would force Mama to bring his food because he did not want to go to the mess hall because he could not bear the people’s eyes which was full of accusing and insulting. At that time Papa and Mama were facing a hard life style that their family had never had. This was so humiliating and he felt insulted. After they were released from Manzanar some of the kids had to move to East Cost to find a job. Woody his son who went to the army was killed two years later.
There is no meat with our supper. We are weak and starving. Half of the men in camp are ill and dying. The General wants healthy soldiers to re-enlist. I have decided to not re-enlist for three reasons which are bad housing, disease, and bad clothing.
Forced to live in horrible conditions with hardly any food, Eliezer ceased to pray, and began to believe God had no sense of justice. Not long after, Elie and his father were moved to another camp where conditions were just as bad. Elie’s experience at this camp was dehumanizing. He was beaten and saw things no human should have to see.
“It’s unendurable. It is the moaning of the world, it is the martyred creation, wild with anguish, filled with terror, and groaning.” (61) That quote describes how painful it was for the men to listen to innocent creature slowly die. The horses have done no bad deed, they just happened to be standing where the shots were fired and were hit instead of the enemy. This shows how war creates a loss of innocence, in multiple aspects. While the men were listening to the horses cry for hours, waiting to be put out of their misery, the men become depressed.
This blood scene stimulate Holden which has negative effect on Holden’s psyche. He feels sorry for Castle’s death, and this tragedy event acts as trauma for Holden. Besides, those memory from the pass can affect his behavior. “I thought probably I’d get pneumonia and die. I started picturing millions of jerks coming to my funeral and all” (171).
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.
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 thousands of Indians in a month’s, went to hundreds in a weeks, and too few in a days. The federal government forced them to leave their homelands and walk thousands of miles to a specially designated “Indian territory” across the Mississippi River. Some of the natives were crying that they had to leave their homeland, that they had many generations and traditions created. They made the journey to Indian territory on foot some, bound in chains and marched double file without any food, supplies or other help from the government. The natives did not have warm clothes to pass true the cold weather but the settlers were well prepared for the snowy mountains.
By February of 1778, there were only 8,000 soldiers left. That means that over 4,000 soldiers either died or quit at Valley Forge. I wouldn 't want to stay there if that many people were dying and getting sick. During their encampment, through the months of December -June between 1800 to 2500 soldiers had died from an illness. If that
When everyone in camp was crying and asking where God was as they all watched the boy struggle to cling on to life, Elie had thought to himself that God was there “hanging…from [the] gallows”, symbolizing his loss of faith in God. From then on, as Rosh Hashanah passed, Elie felt intense hatred for God as He did nothing to help the thousands of people suffering and being murdered. Elie refused to sanctify God’s name because of the immense pain He was causing, and felt angry that others in the camp continued to worship Him. Elie felt “terribly alone in a world without God, without man” and “without love or mercy”. As everyone prayed, Elie felt like “an observer [and] a stranger” because he had disconnected from God, and as he defiantly continued to eat instead of fasting for Yom Kippur, Elie “felt a great void opening” inside him as his last bit of trust in God faded.
