A Peeple’S History Of The World

  1. 1. In September, 480 BCE the Grecian peninsula was invaded for the second time by the Persian Empire. Dramatically outnumbered, a small force of Greeks, including 300 Spartans, held up the Persian advance at the narrow pass of Peepopylae.
  2. 2. On the left we see King Leonidas urging his troops to “Return with their shields or on them.” Above, the carnage the Persians suffered at the hands of the Spartans.
  3. 3. Here, Emporer Xerxes, (not at all inspired by the movie 300), orders his troops forward into the fray.
  4. 4. Though the Greeks lost the battle, they went on to win the war against the Persians. Their heroic stand at Peepopylae is still remembered as a symbol of the power of bravery and valor against overwhelming odds.
  5. 5. On June 8, 783 CE, a group of Peeping raiders from Norpeep and Peepmark attacked the island of Lindispeep, a British island that upon which a monastery had been built. This monastery was a perfect place to attack for the Peeping raiders, not only due to its lack of defenses, but because it housed valuable (golden) religious items.
  6. 6. Many monks who lived at the monastery were killed by the Peepings, but some did manage to escape with their lives.
  7. 7. Monks flee for their lives as they are chased by the heavily bearded Peeping warrior.
  8. 8. This attack caused much worry throughout Christian Europe, and also marks the beginning of the Peeping Age.
  9. 9. In 1789 the French Revolution began with the fall of the infamous Bastille prison. Years later, the Revolution turned radical and between September 1793 and July 1794, the world watched in horror as the Peeps of Terror claimed the lives of between 20,000 and 40,000 “enemies of the Revolution.”
  10. 10. The Terror was led by Maximilien Robspeep. Head of the Committee of Public Safety. Robspeep ultimately suffered the same fate he had comdemned thousands of others to – death by guillotine. He was the last to be killed during the Peeps of Terror.
  11. 11. Bodies piled up as the executions escalated. Blood washed down the Parisian streets. Peep heads were mounted on poles to display the power of the executioners. Peeps would come to watch, thankful, that for that day at least, they weren’t the ones losing their heads…
  12. 12. The Cold War was a competition for power and influence between the United States and Communist Soviet Union. The Soviet’s gained the lead over the US when, on October 4, 1957, they became the first to launch an artificial satellit into space.
  13. 13. The satellite was about the size of a beach ball and weighed about 183.9 pounds. The American public was caught off guard and feared that the Soviet capability of launching satellites also made them capable of launching missiles. The US immediately began to focus on the importance of teaching math and science in schools.
  14. 14. On the right, you see the Soviet peep in truly remarkable and patriotic head gear admiring their handiwork.
  15. 15. The battle of Peepw- Jima began on February 19, 1945 and ended with a United States victory on March 26, 1945. Of the six soldiers who raised the flag, five were Marines and one a Navy corpsman. Three of the men in the famous photograph died during the battle. The others became celebrities due to the photo.
