Storyboard Text

  • The Battle of Marathon
  • Greece will be MINE!
  • The Battle of Marathon was one of many battles in the Persian wars. 
  • King Darius was ruling Persia at the time. He'd already conquered many lands, but he wanted Greece.
  • So in 490 BCE, Darius invaded Greece, with his general, Datis in charge of the army. They led around 90,000 men.
  • And the Greeks had only 10,000 or 20,000 men.
  • However, the Greeks had longer spears, heavier swords, better armor, and lots of skill . . . 
  • . . . . and against all odds, Greece won the victory.
