The first years for the English settlers were harsh and devastating. By 1611, two-thirds of the settlement had died and all hope was lost for the settlers. The 3 main circumstances that caused a majority of English colonists at Jamestown to lose their lives were the environment, the social and religious conflicts with the Natives, and the lack of survival skills. The environment the colonist chose to settle in wasn’t
This weakened the natives in war as they had very little men to send to resist the colonists. Those who were captured were enslaved and after the war the word “Pequot” was outlawed. Along with disease and weak immune systems the natives were plagued by death for the next few centuries. In conclusion, both Native Americans and New England colonists were affected by colonialism because of the various of actions they both experienced. Both were affected by false peace,
Colonists can’t defend one another from harm against questionable consequences. The three items you mainly need in life is shelter, water, and food. On the ship list, the colonists forgot about a cook or even a farmer. In conclusion on the Jamestown Ship List, there should have been more numbers of skilled men compared to deaths on the
Vietnam was very gruesome and took half a million lives. These lives consisted of men that were drafted into the war by the Selective Services. These lives were mainly of a minority, or of lower social class. Protesters were against the draft because of the unfair rules. The people that had to go to war had no reason not to; they had no school to attend and no money to pay for a school.
“ Because the adjacent river and creek became brackish as water levels rose, reliable sources of freshwater would have been scarce,” (Doc A). If there was not that much freshwater they could have died because they could have drink some of the water, and if you drink too much salt water you can die. “ ….dug shallow wells to supply themselves with sources of drinking water, but these were vulnerable to droughts,” (Doc A). If the water was vulnerable to drought what were they suppose to drink of the water was vulnerable. “.... where filth introduced into the river tended to fester rather than flush away,”(Doc A).
Their trip to the New World was difficult due to the struggles with diseases and the lack of supplies they had. In both of the British colonies they had trouble with the supply of food. Both of the men, Smith and Bradford, had an encounter with the Native Americans although the experiences weren’t the same. Smith didn’t have a nice encounter with the Native Americans, “Leading an expedition on the Chickahominy
Over the years the Powhatan, Nanticoke, and the Piscataway ethnic groups have lost many of their people. This was because the ethnic groups did not have any way to fight off the new disease that the colonies had brought to their land and they had no way to treat their people once they got the disease. Some of the new disease that hurt the natives where smallpox, cholera, and measles. (learnnc.org) “During the beginning of the colonies coming to the Indian’s lands, everyone was friendly towards each
In 1655 they attacked Fort Christina and claimed New Sweden. The Dutch made New Sweden part of New Amsterdam which later became New York. Yet another group joins the battle for land! England! As well as the Dutch the English thought they should own land too.
al., 2015), a lack of sewage piping systems has forced sewage from private toilets to be discharged into local water bodies, posing the local ecosystem to serious health risk and environmental risk. In addition, waste water from rural livestock and fish farms have a higher pollutant concentration. The study reported that pollution is mainly from domestic sewage, industrial waste water and the use of fertilisers and pesticides. Chinese farmers had to use polluted water or even sewage water for irrigation, which have become an effective measure to address water shortages. However, the use of polluted water leads to contaminants into soils, which in turn, leads to the reduction of agricultural productivity and lower quality of agricultural products (Yu, et.
The maps of Charles Town in 1671 were very difficult to read and understand. The maps did not show other neighboring tribes, so there were many fights over land. The maps not having enough detail made it difficult for settlers to find locations and resources. The map in doc A shows where water is and trees are but that would not help a settler who is lost. A map-maker would also have difficulties when making the map because he/she would not know where to put everything like rivers and forests.
