Four Main Greece Events
Wars, The League, The King (FIRST TRY IN SMORES)
The Three Wars between Persia and Greece
After the Battle of Marathon, Pheidippides ran 26 miles and 385 yards without resting to tell the Greeks they had won. He died immeidately after huffing out the news. Today, people run the Marathon with the exact same distance Pheidippides ran to honor him.
The Delian League
The Peloponnesian War
Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great’s motives were caused by the Peloponnesian war. Alexander loved Greece even though he was Macedonian himself because he was taught by Aristotle. Aristotle taught him about Greeks and their amazing culture. Some of the things he taught him would eventually become enduring impacts of Greeks. Alexander eventually conquered other areas around Greece, and while he did, he spread Greek culture, Hellenism. Alexander the Great was important because without him, Greece’s legacy would not have been able to spread throughout Europe and become the enduring impacts we now have today.
