FC: The Black Death | Victim of the Plague Being Buried | By Kevin Caverly

1: Ring Around the Rosie Pocket Full of Posie Ashes, Ashes We All Fall Down | This game came from the Black Plague. Pocket full of Posie comes from people carrying around flowers because everything smelled bad. Ashes, ashes refers to burning Black Plague victims. We all fall down comes from everyone dieing. | Ring Around the Rosie

2: Three Types of the Black Plague 1. Bubonic Plague. Symptoms include high fever causing insanity, internal bleeding causing black and purple blotches on the skin, twitching, and eventually death. 2. Pnuemonic Plague. Symptoms include coughing up blood, coma, and death. 3. Septimatic Plague. Some symptoms include rash, bleeding around the rash and death. | Top: Victim Being Buried Bottom: Rat That Transmitted the Plague

3: What Spread the Black Plague Black rats, brown rats and fleas carried the Bubonic and Septimatic Plagues while the Pnuemonic plague was spread by people coughing up blood and germs from their lungs. Then when other people breathed in the germs they would be infected. | Flea That Transmitted the Plague

4: Primary Source November 7th, 1352 I am writing this journal today because I had to bury all five of my sons. They all got the plague within a week of each other and died about 4 days later. Me and my wife dug them their own grave so their bodies could rest together. I suppose it is only a matter of time until I catch the plague and die myself. December 24th, 1352 My wife has also died and I appear to have the plague also. There are horrifying dark purple blotches appearing on my skin. Wherever the black blotches appear I also experience tremendous pain. I feel terrible. I suppose it is a shame that I am to die during this Christmas season but hopefully I have a good life left for me in Heaven. | Tombstone

5: The Jewish Population Being Blamed Many Christians during the Middle Ages and the time of the Black Plague blamed the Jewish population for all disasters. They thought that God was bringing punishment and death because Jewish people did not believe that Jesus was the savior. | Jewish People Were Burned During the Black Plague Because Christians Thought They Brought the Plague

6: Doctors Attempts to Cure The Plague 1. Doctors would stick needles into the black blotches on the infected people's skin to try to rid them of the bad blood. 2. Many people whip themselves as to repent for the sins they have committed. They thought this would please God and he would take the plague away. 3.Many king's and important people's physicians said they should sit between two fires so that the bad air would be killed. | Medical Sign

7: Facts on the Plague 1. 25 million died in the first three years when the plague hit Europe. 2. Most victims died within three dies of getting the plague. 3. Only one royalty died of the plague. 4. Flagellants were people that whipped themselves to try to repent because they believed the plagues was a punishment from god. | Whip
