Persians Point of View
Hi and welcome to my blog. I am writhing a post for history and it is about how I got into the Persian war.
I am a soldier and about to be in a war against the Greeks. I am getting ready to battle for the war of the Marathon. I have been training for something like this for years. I got into this battle because I live in Persian and I have to fight for them. I am really scared to fight but I have a felling that we might actually win. This will be a scary fight but it will be nice to win
Its 490 B.C. we had 20,000 soldiers on the plain of Marathon. We are only a short distance from Athens. The Athens only had about 10,000 soldiers. Time to fight. I hear swords banging against each other. I smell fresh blood of all of the different soldiers laying around. I can taste the dust blowing from each direction. I can fell the way my smooth sword as I am swinging it back and fourth killing the Athens. I see different actions going on all around me, like swords, archers, soldiers being killed, blood dripping from them, and everyone fighting each other. I can almost taste victory but its sill not over. Ouch! I got cut by a sword. I fall to the ground but someone picks me up and carries me to safety. Now I am safe and happy that we won!
Here is a drawing of me when I heard that we won. I was Happy!
