Storyboard Text

  • After the Persians were defeated, the Greeks divided into 2 camps- The Athenian Empire (Athens and Delian League)...
  • OMG, I HATE THE SPARTANS!!
  • ME TOO!!
  • And Sparta and its supporters (Peloponnesian League)
  • I HATE THE ATHENS! 
  • I KNOW RIGHT! I'M REALLY SCARED OF THEIR GROWING EMPIRE!
  • BECAUSE OF ALL OF THEIR DISPUTES, THE GREAT PELOPONNESIAN WAR STARTED (431 B.C.)
  • I'm Pericles, & I think the Athenians are secure as long as we stay behind these walls, because if we go into the open, the Spartans will definitely beat us
  • Yeah, they have a better army, but we have a better navy, which is sending us supplies
  • The Spartans and their allies are surrounding Athens, hoping that we will send out our army to fight, but we won't!
  • -1ST WINTER-
  • The Athenians held a funeral for those who died in combat
  • Athens is great and has an incredible political system! Don't ever forget!!
  • 2ND YEAR OF WAR
  • A plague broke out in Athens and killed 1/3 of the people
  • A YEAR LATER (429 B.C.)
  • Pericles himself died :( ...but the Athenians still fought on for 25 years
  • Within the next year, Athens surrendered and the Athenian Empire was destroyed
  • The Athenian fleet was destroyed at Aegospotami
  • 405 B.C.
  • Overall, the Great Peloponnesian War weakened the major Greek states and ruined cooperation between them
