It looks as if Athens is working with the Ionians to defeat us!!!
Battle at Marathon
They've come to take our land!!!
We won! Don't give up the city.
During the battle at Marathon, Athens sent soldiers and ships to help Ionian greeks. This caused the Persians to get upset and want to destroy Athens for helping the Ionian greeks. Athens won the Ionian revolt.
It was a battle between Greece and the Persian Empire and took place in Ionia. Persians decided to conquer the area in which Greeks had been settled for a long time. Greece won the battle.
Athens won the battle at Marathon but the city now stood defenseless. A runner ran to Athens to deliver the news of the victory. After the Persians were defeated they planned to destroy Athens as Revenge. When they arrived they realized it was heavily armed and they turned around and left.
We need to turn back before we lose.
Darius the great's son wanted to crush Athens. On his way he had to go through a narrow mountain pass only when he got there many Greeks and Spartans blocked the way of him and his army.
We cant give up we can beat them.
Xerxes wanted to do this as revenge for his father but the Greeks for the news before he made it there and they found a way to protect their city by attempting to block Xerxes but Xerxes and his army still fought their way through.
We made it into the city!
Athenians evacuated the city to fight at sea. They positioned themselves at the channel. Xerxes ships tried to leave Athens and got stuck in battle. Athenians sunk more than 1/3 of Xerxes fleet.
