    A Gift of Peace from the Past, the Ancient Olympics

    Since 1896, the year the Olympics were resurrected from ancient history, the Olympics have been a symbol of the camaraderie and harmony possible on a global scale.

    A Historic Overview of the French Revolution

    If the impulse to create art is a defining sign of humanity, the body may well have been the first canvas.

All of the

    One of the most well known conquests of the all time is the conquest of Mexico by the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes. This is a puzzling conquest to historians because while the Spanish had the advantage of technology, it shouldn't matter when compared to the Aztec's superior numbers and home advantage. These factors should have allowed the Aztecs to surround Cortes's small force and soundly defeat them yet we know that this isn't what happened.
