Curzon and the other soldiers are listening to instructions
General Washington's orders are clear. The Huts will be aboveground. No windows are to be built. First to complete the hut will win a twelve-dollar reward.
The Soldiers have to cut the trees for wood in order to make the cabins.
We need more supplies. This isn't enough for our work.
This is all we have. We are getting more supplies soon.
The Soldiers have been working very hard and managed to build the huts by midday.
We finally finished. But I'm super hungry and we have no food here. It's always firecake
Curzon and the soldiers have to build huts for protection and their health. It is getting too cold and they need to be in good condition in order to move on. They will earn a reward if they finish first.
They ate firecake and drank all the water they could drink.
pickles and pies erupting with berries, swimming in cream
The Sergeant gave them an ax and three shovels. He put Greenlaw in charge and Greenlaw was confused because he saw that they were low on storage. The soldiers need more than an ax and three shovels. They need to work hard and cut the wood.
Curzon and his friends needed to get ready to sleep.
We can not all sleep in this cramped place !
It took the soldiers until midday to build the huts. They have to work on the inside of the huts in order for them to actually have a place t stay in this harsh weather.
The Soldiers couldn't go to sleep.
The Soldiers gathered around the fire and ate their firecake. They wished they had platters of good food instead of the horrible firecake they had to eat. Everyone was tired of eating it and had the look on their faces. They suffered.
If only we had roasted chicken, venison straw, flapjacks
bread spread with butter and topped with cheese, pudding
The Sergeant told all 6 soldiers to see in the cabin. Curzon knows the cabin is too small for them to all sleep in there. The weather was gteting worse and they needed to make it work.
Greenlaw and Silvenus were talking bout how cold the weather was and how the food wasn't enought. Silvenus told them the cold is going to eat their bodies when they are older. He made everyone laugh.
I'm too hungry to go to sleep and cold. That firecake didn't fill me up.
Me too. Just wait until your old. The cold is going to eat way your bones.
