But they do know Emperor Qin Shinvant, ordinary people, and slaves all helped build it.The reason it was built was because it was going to help protect from attacks. It was also going to prevent tribes from crossing the border. One bad thing about the construction of the Great Wall, was that 1 million people died from the construction.
