An Historical Perspective
On September 4th, 490 BCE a nameless Greek Army messenger ran 22 miles from the city of Marathon to Athens. The rugged road he traversed wound though mountainous terrain under a scorching late-summer sun. Short of breath, he delivered critical news to the leaders of Greece's largest city: The large invading Persian Army had been defeated in a long, enduring battle. From this crucial day the Greek civilization flourished, greatly influencing the Romans, the Renaissance, and our society today.

The Battle of Marathon is thought to be the single most important in Greek history, perhaps in Western history. Under King Darius I, Persia controlled most of the known world, from Asia Minor to Egypt. Had the Athenians lost, Persia would have controlled Greece, and the subsequent culture and accomplishments of Classical Greece - the arts, architecture, science, philosophy, and democracy to name a few - would probably not have developed as they did.
