The Awful Colonies

I am Mike the Mouse. I live in one of the thirteen colonies, Maryland . Be glad you didn't live during these times. One hundred new people arrived the other day and now less than fifty remain. People died from lack of food and water intake. People also died from a disease scurvy. A diease that you can get from lack of vitamin C. Colonists also died from yellow fever a diease spread by female mosquitoes. People who died are the lucky ones their pain is over. As for the people who are alive they had miserable lives. They had to look for food for their family in order to survive. Also medicine was hard to find because so many people needed it the docters were often ran into the problem of medicene running out. Therefore a lot of people are dying.
