Also, they would dump their human waste into the water and make it even more contaminated so when the people of Jamestown would drink or use the water it would make them ill and even to the point that they died. Within a couple of years they also faced drought which many people died because of starvation. The colony went to desperate measures by forcing the Indians to trade their grain, the Indians didn’t give up easy though as it says in the document ‘some harshe (harsh) and cruwell (cruel ) dealinge (dealings)by cutting of towe (two) of the salvages (Indians) heads and other extremities.” Another reason why the colonist died in the colony of early Jamestown was because of the skills they had. When the first ship arrived in Jamestown they brought over a total of 110 males in 1607. 47 of the men were gentlemen, back then, a gentlemen was a person of wealth who was not used to working with his hands.
Mary Pleasants story is one of dedication and perseverance. She was born between 1814 and 1817 and was the part African-American, part white, illegitimate child of a Virginia governor's son (John H. Pleasant). She grew up in Georgia, but at the age of 9 was sent to Louisiana and subsequently from there to Massachusetts. After her indentureship ended she moved to Boston and from there moved back to Virginia. Once there she set up and help run an underground railroad for a number of years pretending to be white, but inevitably was recognized and hunted.

When Kincaid views the map of England presented to the class by the teacher, she makes a sarcastic comment, “at the time I saw this map - seeing England for the first time - I did not say to myself “Ah, so that’s what it looks like.” Her teacher views the map with awe. Through this statement it is evident of Kincaid’s perspective of England. She shows much less enthusiasm because she feels a loss of her Antiguan culture with an over emphasis on the English way. Another example of sarcasm used by Kincaid is when she tells of the realization that nearly everything on her island comes from England. She states that the food, clothing, accessories and cars all seem to have been “Made in England.” Kincaid explains to draw a map of England would result in her erasure, not physical erasure, but her erasure all the same.
What types of emotions filled your heart? One emotional moment that filled my heart was when Fanta decided to kill her own baby and Sanu’s baby. I felt bad for Sanu because she was a quit character in the book and independent. It took courage for Sanu to jump out of the ship as soon as Fanta threw Sanu’s baby overboard, because as soon as the captors saw Sanu it the water they started shooting at her and basically committed suicide. 4 Aminata one day hopes that she returns back home to Bayo.

Amy Tan Final Exam In “My Mother’s English” by writer Amy Tan, we learned that her perception on her mother’s English had evolved over-time. As a writer Amy Tan feels that language is her way or tool of getting a point across, she even uses “All the English she grew up with”, meaning the fractured English her mother taught her. Tan says, “It is the sort of English that is our language of Intimacy, the English that relates to family talk, and the English that I grew up with”. Tan’s main point is that even though her mother speaks what some would call broken English, to her it’s beautiful to other “English speakers” it is abnormal.

[pointment led to Elizabeth’s mother’s beheading when she was just two (Briscoe). She was raised by governesses and tutors, studying with scholars, and educated to the highest standards, learning public speaking, and how to turn the tide of opinion in her favor (Briscoe).

Therefore, Elizabeth I’s skill, judgment and intuition, which ultimately led to her success, were not so unusual
