Week-works were the work that was done on a weekly basis, and boon works were done as extra labor occasionally throughout the year (Bennett 106). Even during the period between plowing/sowing and harvest, when there was less field work to be done, the contracts usually specified enough work to keep the serfs busy for the days of work that they owed the lord (Bennett 108). This work could include fertilizing the fields with manure, weeding, caring for the lord’s garden, digging ditches, mending fences, fetching apples, reeds, or something else, and caring for the lord’s animals (Bennett 108). In addition to labor, serfs also owed various taxes and payments to their
The American military believed that it would be necessary for them to invade northwestern Europe in 1942 so they could take the heat off of the Soviets.But they had a preferred date in mind it was the spring of 1943, the American ground forces would more ready for anything that would come their way, they trained and equipped to fight the Wehrmacht on the European continent. There were many difficulties that the operation had brought they had believed that American's intelligence and strategies and resources could solve the
King Louie socially neglected the Third Estate into near anarchy and placed crippling taxes on the farmers that were unwarranted and cruel. These factors pushed the Third Estate into a state of fear and political unreliability. His actions gave the peasants a reason to believe that the conspiracies of the famine plot were true. While there are other people responsible for the Great Fear such as the Nobles and the Peasants, it was King Louis XVI’s responsibility to keep the people of France under control. Due to the King’s inattentive and apathetic personality and actions, the people of the Third Estate were concerned and on their toes, which led them to believe the outlandish rumors that sparked the Great Fear of
3) Truman is to blame for the outbreak of the Cold War due to the changes in West Germany In January 1947, the United States and Britain merged their Western German occupation zones (Bizonia). Later, in April 1949, France merged with this occupation zone, creating Trizonia. Several changes were made and, in early 1948, the US and the Western European government announced an agreement to the economic rebuild of Germany, creating a federal government. They also introduced a new currency, the Deutsche Mark, in replacement of the one which was introduced by the Soviets, the Reichsmark. Shortly after, in June 1948, Stalin instituted the Berlin Blockade preventing food, materials and supplies from arriving in West Berlin.
The Battle of Stalingrad lasted from Summer 1942 to January 1943 and was fought by the German and Soviet armies. Historian Geoffrey Roberts claims, “No battle of the Second World War has gripped the western imagination as much as the Battle of Stalingrad,” showing its impact on the war in the West. This battle resulted in a Soviet victory and marked a turning point in the war. In Die Stalingrad-Protokolle, historian Jochen Hellbeck claims, "The communist commissars in the Red Army understood how to exploit patriotism in order to mobilize people and move them to fight against a fascist aggressor,” explaining that the Soviets viewed Germany as “fascist aggressors,” and that the Soviets were effective in mobilizing people. Both countries’
Looking at the Berlin Airlift, the Marshall Plan, and the Truman Doctrine can affirm the success of Harry Truman’s foreign policy of Containment during the Cold War. One instance in which Truman’s policy succeeded was during the Berlin Airlift. After World War II, the US, Britain, France, and the Soviet Union split up Berlin, each occupying roughly a quarter of it. In 1948, the US, Britain, and France wanted to combine their zones. To prevent this, the USSR cut off all supply lines to Western Berlin.
“It’s a direct relationship there.” The students who work in these positions are exposed to every aspect of a meat production operation. They learn how to do everything from harvesting an animal to delivering the finished product to the customer. This also includes packaging, sales and keeping track of profit and loss statements. “We are really offering something unique to give our students real-world experience in a working meat company,” said Tate. Student assistants are not the only ones who get to go through this remarkable learning opportunity.
After the rebellion was squashed, many americans were alarmed that a mob of farmers were able to take over the Massachusetts government - even for a short time. The “commotions sufficiently shocked (George) Washington to set him on the road to Philadelphia” (Larson, 236 ) to rewrite the Articles of confederation and to make a new constitution. During the constitutional convention, the authors of the document gave lots of power to the central government to prevent another mob from taking over a government again. Because of the constitution, the federal government also received the power to tax all the states and pass laws that could hurt farmers (“Article I:”). This shows that Daniel Shays rebellion was unsuccessful because it went against the goals of the rebellion of getting taxed less and having having pro debtor laws.
To eradicate this problem, they had to find a new way to produce food. The solution they came up with was farming. They planted food and domesticated animals to provide for themselves. As a result of this, the once nomadic hunter-gatherers became settled farmers. They then developed towns due to their new settled lifestyles.
This is similar Mengele. They both harassed and killed people because they do not accept certain values that people have. This represents how Mengele is evil. He ruled over people, and harassed them, which shows how Pol Pot was evil. Pol Pot shows unjust actions towards many people in the
The attacks on the railways and waterways, as mentioned above, not only affected the German economy but also the German army. The equipment that had been produced was difficult to move from the factory to the front line and there was also limited space on the trains to move the men themselves. Whilst not entirely as a result of Allied Strategic Bombing, 80% of the German army was horse-drawn. This lack of transportation hindered the army from reaching its full capabilities thereby limiting their performance in the war and as such it seems that allied strategic bombing of the transport infrastructure was highly successful in achieving its objective of impacting and hindering other areas of the German war effort. The bombing also delayed the use of Hitler’s Vergeltungswaffe rockets.
On the other hand, the government had reasons to why they needed to put down the rebellion. One of the reasons behind why the government battled against the rebellions was because they felt as though the farmer had bad intentions and were attempting to gain more power. Also, they were simply trying to shield the courthouses from any sorts of destruction. As a result, some rebellions, unfortunately, were killed or wounded. However, I would still consider them to be on the wrong side since they were basically taking money from individuals until they didn 't have anything left.
This would damage business which would therefore damage the economy. The government would have to step in, whether directly or indirectly to maintain the stability of the system. Many workers created unions to protect workers and bully companies. “With the miners resisting, refusing to give in, the mines not able to operate, the Colorado governor (referred to by a Rockefeller mine manager as 'our little cowboy governor ') called out the National Guard, with the Rockefellers supplying the Guard 's wages” (Zinn Online). The government was willing to defend the capitalist businesses from socialist workers demanding more rights.
