Map and Directions
One of the foundational events of Western civilization and the basis of the movie 300. The battle and the wider Persian War are a fascinating and stirring story, full of events that almost beggar belief - the Persian emperor Xerxes building a mile-wide bridge of boats across the Hellespont to march his army into Greece, a handful of Spartans holding off an army of tens of thousands, the Oracle of Delphi making a cryptic prophecy that ended up saving the Greeks from utter destruction...
Cost $5.00. Book and pay online.
