(Document B) Without water, the crops were unable to grow which led to hunger, starvation, and death. When there where crops to tend to, the water levels were too weak to do so. (Document B) Moreover, the rivers and lakes became brackish which means that they started to fill with salt. Therefore, their dependable sources of fresh water became limited. (Document A) Since there was a short supply of fresh water, many colonists died of dehydration.
The shortage of women also affected the society in Virginia. On the list of emigrants for Virginia, there were very few names of women; men were the majority in that colony. [Doc. C] The scarcity of women made the men feet discouraged, hopeless and even died early. Without women, they had no motive to keep going or to make a better living; therefore, Virginia was at an economic stake.
For example, there were no longer any engineers left who knew how to build or maintain aqueducts. This meant that when these structures broke they couldn’t be fixed, and so over time there was less provision for clean water. The local population used the stone from the bath houses and other structures to build their own homes as there was less emphasis on public health. The new rulers of Britain did not think it was as important as the Romans had. By 1350 there were some quite serious public health problems in towns, where the lack of fresh water and drainage was a problem which caused the water to be contaminated by other sources and was not healthy to drink.
How effective were the Liberal social reforms in the period 1906 to 1914? In the early Twentieth Century poverty in Britain was a very serious issue. There were groups of society who had no way of tackling or rising out of poverty. Poverty was more evident in the North of Britain and in big cities, although rural poverty was also a problem. Particularly vulnerable groups were the old, who had no means of acquiring money.
Despite these improvements, the colony was not a financial success. The Virginia Company declared bankruptcy in 1622. Two years later, the Crown assumed full control of the settlement, making Virginia the first of the royal colonies. Jamestown, Virginia was the first established American colony with the arrival of 104 colonists on May 13, 1604. Virginia is considered one of the southern colonies and consists of big plantations
Subsequently, the settlement became highly dysfunctional since the English gentleman refused to do work that was necessary to the colonies survival. This difference in social status was one of the many problems faced by the Jamestown colony. These setbacks included disease, starvation, massive death rates, and the pending relationship with the Powhatan Native Americans. The Powhatan were initially friendly to the colonists and gave them food, but drought ended the Powhatans generosity. The colonists attacked the Powhatan to procure food and relations never recovered afterwards.
As Strayer, Gatzke, and Harbison state in their textbook The Course of Civilization states “The basic trouble was that very few inhabitants of the empire believed that the old civilization was worth saving… the overwhelming majority of the population had been systematically excluded from political responsibilities. They could not organize to protect themselves; they could not serve in the army… Their economic plight was hopeless. Most of them were serfs bound to the soil, and the small urban groups saw their cities slipping into an economic decline.”(DBQ 2, Doc 1) What these men mean is the majority of the people (which were poor serfs) were excluded from political responsibilities. In addition, they could not protect themselves or serve in the army mainly because they were too poor (in order to be in the army, the people had to be wealthy) and the urban patricians saw their city fall into an economic downfall. What also led the downfall of the Western Roman Empire were the rise of Christianity and the large size
The second reason why Magellan was worth defending was because of his sacrifice. With the crew’s long days and reduced rations, there was only a matter of time until the crew faded. “… the upper and lower gums of most of our men grew (swelled) so much that they could not eat, and in this way so many suffered, that nineteen died…” (Doc D) as told by Antonio Pigfetta in 1520 in his journal. These men had no way to dispose of their bodily wastes and were on a limited supply of food. Besides the men who died others fell ill of unknown illnesses.
They had no decent terrain to grow crops and the Native Americans were hostile to some colonists. It seemed that things were just not going to go right for them. Then, when the Native Americans accepted the colonists and gave them their own land, the colonists formed the thirteen American Colonies. But, the colonies were still oppressed under the king’s rule. This made almost every American upset, almost to the point of revolt, but
In December Lieutenant John Paget took command.  On 1 January 1807 she sailed for the Cape of Good Hope. By June Olympia was with the squadron under Admiral George Murray involved in the operations to capture Buenos Aires, supporting General John Whitelocke's soldiers.  Murray and the naval forces were for the most part limited to conveying troops, and subsequently organising their evacuation. By July Paget had been invalided home and Taylor had replaced him.
