The result was deaths most likely caused by lack of food. Another cause of many deaths would be fights that erupted because of fights with the Powhatan Indians, the main group of native people in which they traded with.

[Doc.C] Shows in a group of one-hundred and ten colonists, a vast majority of them were gentlemen. Gentlemen were wealthy men not used to working with their hands.
The finial reason why colonist of Jamestown died so quickly was because of settler skills. DOC C shows that in the original settlers they lacked in many major categories. One of those main categories is that there were not enough doctors. There were also not enough laborers either which caused all the work not to get done. In conclusion the reason why most of the settlers died was because of the environment.
It was thought that they built a boat of some kind by stripping down their houses and using the materials. it was about twenty years until Roanoke was rediscovered by John Smith when he started his own colony called Jamestown. Jamestown was in the same vicinity of Chesapeake Bay and Roanoke.

However much needed reforms such as Old Age Pensions had little to do with the Boer war. Source D mentions how the recruitment for the Boer war highlighted the poor health of many working class men in Britain. These men that applied to the army were often too physically unfit to join the army. Insufficient nutrition from food meant these men were malnourished and could not compete with the physical strength needed working in the army. Up too 40% of men in some areas of the country were turned away because of there poor health.
Johns father also believed that slaving African Americans was wrong and he also was accused of forcibly freeing slaves in 1798.

The murder ignited widespread hostilities which finally turned into war between the Pequot and colonists. Uncas and Roger Williams helped the English colonists to fight the Pequot. Some neighboring tribes remained neutral during the 1637 war. Nearly 600 members of Pequot tribe were killed when their port near Mystic River was set on fire. The massive killings crippled Pequot’s resistance; they moved away from their territory.
The storms and floods had taken all the good soil in the 1930s. People survived off of beans, rice, corn, and milk. Many slaughtered the cattle for meat because there was no market.

The towns where the men that worked on the canal were staying were filthy and were not able to give the men a sanitary place to stay. Once he obtained the attention that was needed, water was provided for the men but it didn’t stop there. Streets were paved, houses were evacuated and cleansed, fresh food was now assessable, and modern communities were built. Research on the mosquitos was then started so they could start on finding a way to prevent yellow fever. Even though the Panama Canal caused many to suffer, today it stands high.
The British crown had given them land, but as the construction for the railroad began, the buffalo began to go elsewhere not having enough land to live on. The Natives had relied on the buffalo hunt for many years, so when the buffalo stopped coming, the Natives didn’t have much resources to live on with, and many of there population died.

Also the smallpox epidemic had killed many people from there tribes, which led to them not having enough people to hunt and had made them sign more treaties to survive through the
Some elements of legislation indicate a measure of panic. Within a year of the onset of plague, during 1349, an Ordinance of Labourers was issued and this became the Statute of Labourers in 1351. This law sought to prevent labourers from obtaining higher wages. Despite the shortage in the workforce caused by the plague, workers were ordered to take wages at the levels achieved pre-plague. Landlords gained in the short term from payments on the deaths of their tenants (heriots), but 'rents dwindled, land fell waste for want of tenants who used to cultivate it' (Higden) and '...many villages and hamlets were deserted...and never inhabited again'.
