Architecture

Greek Architecture is known for its columns. There are three types of columns. Doric, Ionic, and Corinthian, Other types of Greek art include pottery, Sculptures, and paintings. Every city-state had a temple that was dedicated to a specific god. They went there to worship and make sacrifices. Some leaders like Pericles and Alexander the Great spread the Greek architecture throughout Europe.

We see Greek influence in architecture today in important buildings. The White House Capitol Building. Supreme Court and the Lincoln Memorial all have columns that show Greek influence.

Government

The Greek Government didn't wan't one person in power. You had to be latest 18 to vote. The leaders Parco, Solon, Pisistratus, Hippies, Hipparchus, and Themistocles. There leaders were chosen from a hat (like a lottery). There was slavery in ancient Greek. There was a battle in Peloponnese and Persian invasion. We see it in our democracy. (The people get to vote) Everyone could voice their opinion. We also have to be 18 to vote.We have term limits today. (4 yrs limits for President.)
