The Greco-Persian Wars:  Western Civilization in Peril Thursday, July 21 2:30 – 4:00 pm. New Location: The Grove at Canopy 2601 Crestline Rd.  Marathon! A word that calls to mind dedication and endurance, today’s epitome of racing competition and achievement. Just over 2500 years ago it meant a triumph of a different kind. It marked the beginning of a 14-year period when the mighty Persian Empire waged war with a collection of city-states that made up what we now call Greece. Two Persian emperors tried to crush the Greek city-states for daring to interfere in Persian affairs, first at a small Greek village named Marathon and a decade later at other Greek locations including a place known as Thermopylae, the source of the movies The 300 Spartans and 300, where that number of Spartans fought to the last man. Instructor Joe Haberfeld will enlighten us on how the underdog Greeks defeated the invaders and established themselves as the dominant people in their region of the world. Hybrid class in person and on Zoom. Fee. $5
