Hammurabi Hammurabi was a man who became a ruler of people: 1,000,000 people! He ruled a place called Babylonia, for 42 years. A god of justice, named Shamash asked Hammurabi if he would write a code of 282 laws on a stele for him. (BGE) Hammurabi did what he was told to do, and that stele can be found in a museum today. Hammurabi’s code: was it just?
As a young man Jeroboam became a servant for Solomon(king of Israel).

The Trojan War was fought for ten years and ended with the destruction of Troy. Heinrich Schliemann (1822 –1890) located and excavated ancient Troy, and in 1873 he discovered Priam’s gold and jewels, which is now on display at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. Besides Troy, Schliemann also discovered the Mycenaean sites of Mycenae and Tiryns in 1876. His work lent weight to the idea that Homer's Iliad and Virgil's Aeneid reflect actual historical events and pushed back the beginning of Greek history by 600 years to 1400 BC. The Odyssey describes the ten-year adventure of Odysseus (Ulysses) returning to his native kingdom of

INTRODUCTION The story of Noah’s ark is about a man named Noah who God told that He is going to put an end of all flesh and cover the earth with water. So Noah was found righteous and God ordered him to build an ark and put his family and two of each of an animal, male and female. (Genesis 6:7).

He was the son of an Armenian Parthian noble, who was a part of the Iranian army. St. Gregory got in trouble with the king and was sent to prison for 14 years because of his betrayal of the Roman Empire to the Persian or Median Empire. The King of Armenia, decided to release him after his term and make him his mentor. St. Gregory became the Father of the First Armenian Church, and the king asked him to baptize his child and the rest of the people who converted to Christianity.

Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States. He is regarded as an American hero due to his role as a savior of the Union and emancipator of the slaves. His rise from humble beginnings to becoming President of the United States is a remarkable story. He was assassinated during a time his country desperately needed him. Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin in Hardin Country, Kentucky on February 12, 1809.
He was the 16th President of the United States and came to be one of America’s greatest heroes. As president, he worked to build the Republican party into a strong organization. In January of 1863, he issued the Emancipation Proclamation that declared freedom for those slaves within the Confederacy. The president never let the world forget about the Civil War.
Hammurabi, who was a king of the “old Babylonian empire”(Jona Lendering, 2004), ruled from 1792 BCE to 1750 BCE for forty-two years and accomplished a great riverine civilization such that no other king had done to the extent of its mastery. The city of Babylon which is located in Mesopotamia is known as “modern day” Iraq which lies between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers. These rivers helped in creating rich and fertile soil which allowed humans to plant and grow crops in which they needed to survive. Through trade, humans could communicate with one another and grasp on to new ideas. As a result of the rivers, civilization began to flourish outstandingly.
King frequently used allusion, or a direct or indirect reference to something that is commonly or well-known, in his speech. For an excellent example, King refers back to a well-known term made popular in 1863 when the The Gettysburg Address was spoken by Abraham Lincoln . “Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation.". (8-9) Dr. King 's idea to include “Five score years ago…” was to direct the idea that his speech was made exactly 100 years after Lincoln’s speech--a score being 20 years, which makes 5 score being 100 years ago. The Emancipation Proclamation was primarily given to resolve slavery and help give African Americans the same equal rights as white men and by including a quote declared by Lincoln, he is showing gratitude to one of the most heroic men in our nation’s history.
The Book of Mormon was written by many ancient prophets and tells the history of the people in the Americas and their experiences with Jesus Christ and the gospel. Towards the end of his life, the prophet Moroni buried the gold plates, the records containing the Book of Mormon, in the Hill Cumorah, which was where Joseph Smith was lead to find them centuries later. The Book of Mormon contains truths that are not contained in the Bible and explains in more detail the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church was given the nickname “Mormon” after the Book of Mormon, and believes the Book of Mormon to be the truest book on the face of the Earth. It was only through the translation of the Book of Mormon that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints could even begin to be
