Image of a photograph depicting the ruins at Plataea as they look today.  It was at this place that a famous battle occurred between the Persians (who were trying to subjugate Greece) and the Greeks (led, in battle, by the Spartans).

The Persians lost this battle and, with the loss, ceased their efforts to capture Greece.  Alexander the Great, however, remembered what the Persians did to the Greeks as he commenced his efforts to conquer the "known world," including Persia.
