The Saratoga campaign was a series of battles fought during the months of June through October in 1777 in New York. During these battles it was Arnold who led the Americans to defeat Britain’s chalenging army.

During the Battle of Saratoga, the continental army was retreating but Arnold would not accept that.
One of Cortés’ men contracted smallpox from a member of the force from Cuba. That soldier died during the Aztec rebellion, and when his body was looted, an Aztec caught the disease, which spread like wildfire because the Aztec people had no immunity to it. Cortés regrouped and attacked Tenochtitlán in full force in 1521. At that time, the city’s society had crumpled. The Aztecs no longer trusted Montezuma, they were short on food, and the smallpox epidemic was under way.
January 21,1793 began a year long of pandemonium now known as the Reign of Terror caused by King Louis XVI’s poor ruling that landed the country in debt and starvation. Fueled by the need for change, Maximilien de Robespierre started a grand revolution that would demolish absolute monarchy in 1789. The execution of the aforementioned king marked the beginning of a period where public execution was standard and tranquility vanished, or the Reign of Terror. Threats against the country were insinuated which brought about malicious methods in an effort to exterminate the threats, which, like the country itself, revolutionized the French’s ideals. The Reign of Terror was not justified.
The empire lasted for about 1,226 years before its “fall” in 476 CE. Critics argue rhat political instability helped bring about the “Fall” of Rome, however, the military mistakes were the primary reason behind the decline of the empire.

What happened to Frank Romero 's "Going to the Olympics, 1984" upon the decades after the mural was finished was very tragic but I believe it was inevitable for others to tag over the mural. An image from 2009 shows the mural in a rough shape, the bottom half of the mural got completely ruined by people tagging over the mural and spraying graffiti over it as well. Romero 's response to this fiasco was interesting, he sued Caltrans "the state agency that owns L.A. 's 70 freeway murals," because of the people who painted over his mural. What the people of Los Angles thought of this is interesting as well, as Judith Baca "a mural artist and activist" stated "artists are starting to stand up and say, `Enough is enough. ' We 're in a terrible situation, losing work after work."
The Persian line cannot hold against the Greek infantry. Throughout the day, many Persian troops die but only a few Greeks. On the second day of battle, the Persians lose many more. Xerxes learns of a trail that leads behind the Greeks ' position and sends
Although it thrived, it fell around 476 C.E because of major issues. Poor military, mistrust in the government, and the overwhelming size lead to the fall of the Roman Empire. Poor military decisions contributed to the downfall of the Roman Empire. In C 450 CE, the Roman military leaders made a poor decision by letting the military decide on taking away armor (Document 3). This caused more soldiers to be killed in battle because they didn’t have the proper protection.
This ultimately lead to a plague due to Athen’s densely populated city, and lack of medicine, since their trade routes had been cut off. In 429 BCE, Pericles was killed by the plague which had cursed the city. The city’s final destruction would end in 404 BCE, by the
The war finally ends in 1802 and France actually ends up losing at Saint-Domingue. Napoleon saw victory in months but he was wrong. The reason for France’s defeat was because Haiti used guerilla warfare, which was the first time for any country to use this type of attack in the history of modern warfare. Not only did France lose the war but they also lost liberty. Haiti was able to poison their food, their water, they would fight from trees, and they would run away and attack at night.
