  • A Hill Of Fury: - 846 words
    A Hill of Fury: Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat Island After 400 years of quiet slumber, the Soufriere Hills volcano on the tiny island of Montserrat in the Carribean Sea (Figure 1), came to life in the summer of 1997. The eruptions threatened the original 11,000 residents of the island and even today continue to be a nuisance to the remaining 4,000 people who refuse to leave the island, despite warnings of impending danger. At least 20 people have already been killed, and several villages destroyed. The Montserrat Volcano Observatory analyzes the active volcano and provides information to scientists and residents of the island (Montserrat Volcano Observatory 12). The worst of the erupti ...

    Background Of The Battle Of Bunker Hill Background of the Battle of Bunker Hill f Bunker HillNews of April 19, 1775 at Lexington and Concord spread very fast. As the messengers went out through the small towns of Connecticut on their way to Hartford, and from there to New York and Philadelphia, the men of Connecticut grabbed their guns, said their good-byes, and set off for Massachusetts. They went on their way as if they had instructions on what to do. They did not wait for the Governor to tell them what to do. Some were even on their way within 48 hours of the first shot at Lexington. News of the British retreat to Boston reached men along the road. Some who had not gone far at all just si ...

    Battle Of Bunker Hill The Battle of Bunker Hill - 17 JUN 1775 Following the events in Massachusetts at Lexington and Concord, April 19, 1775, state militiamen from Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont gathered in Cambridge and the area surrounding Boston. British General Gage and 6,500 soldiers and marines were in possession of Boston proper, while the American force consisted of over 16,000 men. Sickness and missing brought the number of available soldiers closer to 9,000. In addition the American force was extremely short of gunpowder, having only some 30 or so half barrels of powder beyond that carried in the horns of the citizen soldiers. In the two months following Conco ...

Ward was concerned that reinforcing Prescott would weaken his forces elsewhere and felt he had to wait to learn for certain where the British would attack. By 11 o'clock, two British gondolas approached the Neck as close as possible and began firing at anything that moved along the neck. What actual affect this effort had remains unclear, though there were some casualties. By noon the British were in the boats and Howe with about 1,500 men embarked at one. Whether Ward had issued reinforcement orders or not before the British made their move, he did so now, sending orders to nine Mass ...

  • Brandon Hill - 317 words
    Brandon Hill My Personal Art Collection Enclosed in my portfolio are some of my favorite and most detailed works. I chose these eight pieces, because I feel that they are the best representation of my abilities in art. Because drawing is the area in which I excel most, I have selected mostly works that display my skill in this. In addition to choosing works that demonstrate this ability, I also wanted to include my most unique pieces. All of the works are different either in color, style, mood, or subject matter. When others view my artwork, I want them to form their own ideas and interpretations on the mood and feeling of each piece. It is very interesting to me to see the way people's mind ...

  • Christopher Hill: The Class Strugle Of The English Revolution - 1,044 words
    Christopher Hill: The Class Strugle Of The English Revolution As a prolific historian and scholar of 17th century England, Christopher Hill has taken a unique historical perspective on the Civil War and its manifestations. He perceives the revolution as being a bourgeois insurrection . He also believes that this is the reason for the shaping of England since that time. In 1913 R. G Usher wrote: The English Revolution of 1640 is as much an enigma today as it was to Charles. It is a riddle, which has to be solved. No one has tried to solve it because all assumed it was solved be repeating the Grand Remonstrance. Every Englishman born since 1800 has...been born into a view of English history. C ...

Yet within a decade, war was waged against the king, the House of Lords was abolished and the King Charles I was executed in the name of the middle class. The act of 1649 was so uniquely shocking that on hearing it, women miscarried, men fell into melancholy, some with consternation expired. According to Hill, the people of the lower classes were very frustrated and could not stand their feeling of inferiority given to them by the upper classes. They revolted and then a capitalist system came to be where they could climb out of the socioeconomic tra ...

    Church Leader In Pine Hill There is an expanding church in Pine Hill that I attend each week. This church is filled with many great spiritual people who are like family in which you could share your struggles of life with and then listen to them as they help you get through those struggles. Our pastor is a loving man too and tries to help people as much as he can. He is like a big teddy bear, because he is such a warm and comforting man. However, as the pastor of the church there are certain responsibilities and qualifications that he or she may need. For example, a good pastor should live his or her life according to Gods laws and it should be noticeable to those in the congregation. A good ...

  • Haunting Of Hill House - 1,205 words

  • Hill Like White Elephants - 1,087 words
    Hill Like White Elephants Hills Like White Elephants The most striking feature of this short story is the way in which it is told. It is not a story in the classical sense with an introduction, a development of the story and an end, but we just get some time in the life of two people, as if it were just a piece of a film where we have a lot to deduce. The story is of a woman and a man on their trip to a place where she can have an abortion. In the title Hills like White Elephants, Hills refer to the shape of the belly of a pregnant woman, and White Elephants is an idiom that refers to useless or unwanted things. In this case the unwanted thing is the fetus they are going to get rid of. Every ...

    Quarry Hill "What are you doing tomorrow?" It seemed I had asked this question 100 times already during the summer. "Nothing, hey lets figure something out now, so we don't sit around doing nothing tomorrow morning!" Was the reply I got from my friend Rudy. My other friend, Tom, jumped up onto the hood of his 1979 Camero Z-28. This was the unspoken signal that we would all stay under the stars and contemplate for a while. I decided to take a seat on top of the back of my mother's car. "Well, what are we going to do, guys?" Rudy must constantly be thinking of new things because he didn't even appreciate the moment of almost absolute silence. Tom gave a half laugh which said either "I've got n ...

"Ah.. here we go, this is much better, we must be on the right path now." I was glad to be on a more defined trial, it was a good sign that we weren't blazing up too far away from our destination. We walked a few steps, and another path connected to the one we were following. This new path was wide enough for a car, and ran perpendicular to the one we were on. The two paths hooked up and continued up the hill. We looked down the perpendicular path only to see the main road running down the hill.

    The Battle of Bunker Hill Boom, Bang, Crack! The sounds of muskets being fired, its ammunition ricocheting off rocks and splintering trees are heard all around. The pungent smell of gun powder stings the nose, and its taste makes the mouth dry and sticky. The battle is still young, but blood soaked uniforms and dead or dying men can already be seen, causing the fear of death to enter many of the soldiers' minds. It is remembered that freedom is what the fight is for, so we must continue to gain independence. The battle has been going on for a short time now, although vision is already obscured from all the smoke and dust in the air. It is becoming increasingly difficult to breathe, with all ...

    2001 Graduation Speech Jessica McCoy When I think about the class of 2001 I'm reminded of a story that I'm sure we were all told when we were younger; The Little Engine that Could. The little engine struggles and struggles to get over that one hill, and after working hard enough and never giving up he finally makes it. That's how we are, we've struggled for 13 years to get over this one hill. We've worked long years starting with broken crayons in kindergarten to inside-out sweatshirts in middle school. 13 years of learning from the simplest 2+2 to complicated algebra and calculus, from reciting our ABC's to reading Shakespeare. But now we've finally made it, and our real journey is beginnin ...
