  • The Peloponnesian War by Marcela Lopez
  • Athen's use of money from the Delian League . Athens used this money for its own benefit, when it was intended to protect all of the city-states. By 431 B.C., Sparta had had enough with Athens and declared war on Athens. The Peloponnesian War had begun.
  • Sparta had a strong army and planned to attack athens from sea.
  • Athens had a strong navy, but avoided fighting as much as possible.
  • IN 430 B.C., Athenians began suffering from rashes, headaches, vomiting, and fever. A deadly plague had come upon them. The war seemed unwinable to botheSparta and Athens and in 421 B.C., Athens signed a truce.
  • The truce was intended to last 50 years but instead it only lasted 2. Sparta and Athens went back to war over the rich lands of Sicily. Soon Sparta was cutting off Athenians agricultural and economic resources. The Spartans advanced on Athens and the Athenian army had become blocked by Spartans on land and sea. They had been cornered.
  • In 404 B.C., Athens finally surrendered and the Peloponnesian War was over. As a result, Sparta replaced Athenian democracy with an oligarchy. Athens was reduced to a second- ate  state. However, Greece as a whole, was left weak. The long war had a negative impact in men, money, and resources to any city-state involved.
