It is the middle of the in 1778, there are men everywhere, cots full of ill soldiers, and smoke filled huts. Half of the population is sick and the soldiers have almost no fight left in them. There are few men with spirit left in the camps at Valley Forge. Thomas Paine states, “These are the times that try men's souls”, and as the men walk around injured, bleeding, frozen, and starving you do not only see hunger and pain, you would see what looked like poverty. Tattered clothing draped on the backs of the worn out soldiers, and starved, skeleton resembling bodies. Even though these harsh times will show the true colors of man, some are boasting with the red, white, and blue of patriotism. While innumerable people believe that there is almost no fight or spirit left, the soldiers that stay have hope to win this war. If I was a soldier at Valley Forge, I would stay. I would continue to

In 1939 the world was plunged into World War II because of the Munich Agreement. The Munich Agreement was an agreement regarding the Sudetenland Crisis between the major powers of Europe after a conference held in Munich in Germany in 1938. The Sudetenland was an important region of Czechoslovakia. The Treaty of Versailles was the peace treaty created as a result of six months of negotiations at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, which put an official end to World War I between the Allies and Central Powers. The Munich Agreement caused many disagreements between European countries. Collective security was a more effective response to aggression than appeasement because more European countries disagreed than agreed
From 1880s-1930s mechanization has increased in both Japan and India. More machines had started to be used than using one’s hands which produced more cotton than hand spinning would have. Female workers were overworked in the cotton factories that favored using machines instead of hand spinning to increase the production of cloth and yarn.

The preamble played a vital role in shaping America as it is today. Three of the many national goals stated in this essential document include forming a more perfect union, establishing justice, and promoting the general welfare of every citizen. All of these goals have been achieved to some degree since the conception of the document and America continues to thrive and push forward, still as much in its’ prime as it was years ago.
God does not love transgressors. There will be a reward for those who fight for God.” (doc.8) These documents are trying to explain that fighting for God is good, but fighting for no reason is useless/ pointless. If you shall fight for God than you will be rewarded, if you fall in battle you are promised a spot in heaven.
Have you ever heard of Valley Forge? Well , through the horrific events of Valley Forge , would you rather quit or stay? The Continental Army, has had several successes such as, Trenton and Princeton. They have gone through struggles depending on the length of their enlistment. Most were enlisted for 9 months. If I was a soldier I would have quit because I would not want to die from a illness, have poor food, lodging , and weather, and I would not want to suffer from the smoke in my hut.
In 1493 Pope Alexander VI issued a papal bull to Spain granting them the land "west and south" of a pole-to-pole line 100 leagues west and south of any of the islands of the Cape Verde islands. A papal bull is a particular type of patent or charter issued by a Pope. The Pope decided which country would gain the heathen lands not controlled by Christians. (1.4) Within a century of its issuing the papal bull was no longer a model for settling territorial boundary questions. The papal bull had become defunct. The three main factors in Europe and North America that lead to the undermining of the papal bull can be placed in the categories of political, religious, and financial.
I decided to do this response on sources 10 and 11 which were about the destruction of the Holy Sepulcher. Source 10 was from a Christian's point of view. Right away, the source begins by describing how the sepulcher was destroyed by the prince of Babylon, and how the Jews aided in the destruction as well. This source portrays Jews as being bitter, bold, and proud people. It also states that the reason why the prince of Babylon wanted to destroy the sepulcher was due to the fact that Christians were gaining power, and that they supposedly would soon take over his entire kingdom, which of course, the prince could not let happen. After the Christians had figured out that it was the jews that had helped destroy the temple, they disowned them from
By the statutes being created it implies that not everyone agreed with getting rid of slavery. And a number of the whites in the south wanted to remain superior to the negros.one thing that is not mention but is still important is the fact that Abraham Lincoln is the one who fought for slavery to be abolished which he would eventually achieve.
As James Monroe was elected president, the Era of Good Feelings began and was characterized by cultural and economic nationalism. As a result of the War of 1812, the U.S. created a protective tariff in 1816 to prevent British goods from taking away American business. Protective tariffs were a part of Henry Clay’s American System which also included a national bank and internal improvements, however the plan was halted when the Panic of 1819 occurred; an economic disaster in which unemployment, banks closing, and debt increased. Monroe was a Democratic-Republican president but the Supreme Court was lead by Federalist chief justice John Marshall whose decisions consistently favored a

In nearly every society, tales exist about people sacrificing their beliefs simply because that is what everyone else is doing, and they do not want to be left out. Humans, since the beginning of our time on Earth, have been heavily influenced by outside opinions, and I think human nature will continue this cycle until we no longer inhabit the Earth. Often times, it is easier (but not usually right) to “go with the flow” of what your peers are doing, rather than standing up for what is true. I believe this was illustrated in Arthur Miller’s The Crucible. The girls accusing the townspeople of witchcraft gained attention, something they did not previously have, and banded together, creating a strong, yet deadly, force. Other explanations exist, but there is no way to know for sure what the cause of the hysteria present in Salem was.
