Lumberjacks led very hard lives because every winter it was very cold so they would often catch colds. This often put their lives in danger.Also, some lumberjacks (jamcrackers) had very dangerous jobs. Their jobs often included using dangerous tools such as dynamite. Lumberjacks cut so many trees that if someone accidently drops a match it could start a huge fire. One of the most horrible fire was the Metz fire of 1908. As you can see, lumberjacks led dangerous lives.
My evidence is that usually if they went into the woods in January or Febuary it would get very cold and from experience they would need lots of clothing.
i agree with aidan c. because they did lead dangerous lives but i also disagree because i do not think there was dynamite or matches
I agree Aidan C.but dynamites were only used to unclog lumber jams
i think it is vary hard to be a lumberjack because you hade to chop down trees with a axe and you may not have a lot of food and water to eat or drink and it may be hard to chop some trees but others my be easy to cut and you may get sick because they most of the time chop down trees in the winter and it is hard to bring the trees to the river to get moved to the sawmillto be made in to lumber to make houses and other wood things
I think that a lumberjack life was dirty becausethey never took bathes until the end of the season and I have proof because in the slideit said that the lumberjacks worked really hard and at the end of the day they were in mud.
I disagree with you because they worked in the winter. How can they're be mud?they're is snow.
It was hard being a lumberjack because you had to work from 4:00 am
to Midnight that is a tired full job .I have evidence because I read in the text that the lumberjacks worked for a long time.The other thing about lumberjacks was they didn't have so tasty food like we have know for example pizza,tacos the lumberjacks didn't have all off the TASTY food.My evidence was that they didn't have stores and restaurants, there cook just cooked what ever was there.The lumberjacks had some times of fun like playing cards and tell stories which a bit fun for them.
I think that the lumberjacks the type of life the lumberjack had was very hard because they have to chop down a lot of trees to a tree, to timber than to lumer to make houses,buildings and school. They also needed help to stop some fires, but its also easy because they have different type of groups of lumberjacks, for an example Lumber Barons and Timber Cruisers.
I think lumber jacks had very hard lives because there houses in the power piont looked very unstable.Also it must be very hard to cut down trees.And if they start a forest fire the need to find another place to chopp down ree
lumberjacks lead lumering because lumbermen cut down trees and they get timber then lumber.lumberjacks are very helpful but people don't give the same respect they have to go to different houses to do different stuff because in the pesentation they said they had a bunkhouse,granary,kichen,and a barn. these people are very busy they have to learn and do and explain they had to cut trees every single day.That's my point of view.
I think the life of a lumberjack was lonley. They were very cold too. My evidence was that in winter they still worked and in their houses it was freezing. I think it was dangerous also because Jam Crackers sometimes had to use dynamite to break the jams and they used tooles like boom chains,marking hammer, pike pole,cant hooks,and log scales. I bet that they were not happy with their food because every day they had the same lunch: gravy,bread,potatoes,tea,beans and pork. The only think they did for fun was play music,tell stories,grind their axes and sometimes they had boxing matches.
They must of worked really hard because they worked till early morning to late night. They sometimes had to cut down trees that were 200 feet tall and 200 years old!
It was hard being a lumberjack because thier work was dangerous. They had to cut down trees but once they finished cutting the trees, it could fall on someone and they could get badly injured.
Another reason why being a lumberjack is hard is because they did not have a lot of fun things to do. For entertainment they played cards and music, they told stories, they grinded thier axes,and sometimes had boxing matches.
The last reason why I know that being a lumberjack is hard is because they had boring food. A typical meal consists of bread, potatoes, tea, beans, pork, and gravy.
Llumberjacks had a very lonley life in the woods. I found that out on slide 14. For fun they played music and cards. in a typical meal they had bread,potatoes,tea,beans,pork and gravy. I found that on slide 15.
i agree with adian a
Lumberjacks had led very hard lives in lumber jack camp.I think that the lumber jacks must have cut down many trees.In the slide it said that they used to cut down many white pines because almost the whole part of michigan.Also at that time it was very cold so it must have been hard to cut down trees
I think the life of a lumberjack was tiring becuase they had to work from 4:00a.m. until dark!And they had to cut down trees that stands 200 feet tall and 300 years old.Those trees must of weighed a lot becuase if they had to transported to a river,the log had tobe heavy.
I think the lumberjacks didn't have a easy life. They have to work really hard. Such as our parents they have to work really hard to make their lives succesful. Same with the lumberjacks they have to take alot of time and effort to cut down trees.Plus they have to work in the winter.
the lumbrejacks worked hard because with the fire theylost lives.
I think a life of a lumberjack were a little bit easy because after the lumberjacks cut down the tree white pine they would bring it to the river and just push them in and the tree would float . Also they piayed insturments and others.
