  • We shall win this war!!!
  • Athens didn't want to fight on land because they were a navy city, so they hid behind the city walls. Sparta grew even more angry so they burned the farmland and crops that Athens had built.
  • OH NO
  • Each side had its strengths and weaknesses. Sparta won the land battles, but then Athens won all of the sea battles.
  • Food was scarce because Sparta had destroyed all of the crops. Labor for Athens was also scarce because all of the slaves had escaped to Sparta.
  • GIVE ME BACK MY FRUIT!!!!!
  • GIVE ME BACK MY SLAVES!!!!
  • Sparta gained control of Athens’ port. Athens left their boats in the harbor to get food and supplies. Sparta saw the boats just sitting there and stole them. That was why Athens had to surrender.
