King Darius, will our plan to conquer Greek city states really work?
Athens prepare for battle!
Wow only one Athenian, this should be easy!
In 490 B.C. Persia had a plan to conquer Greek city-states. Their commanding officer was King Darius and he decided to start the battle off in Athens.
Athens and Persia lined up to prepare for battle east of Athens on the plain of Marathon. The Athenian commander was named Miltiades.
The Athenians were greatly outnumbered. To every Athenian, there were three Persians.
Victory for Athens!
This war was fought both on land and on the water, but most of it was on land. The Athenians used the water to escape and get supplies.
We need more swords
The Athenians won the battle after it lasted for only a few days.
Something unique is at the end of the war, a messenger named Pheidippides ran nearly 25 miles to Athens to deliver the news of the victory.
