Marathon lent its name to the worlds most famous race, but it also preserved Western civilization during the First Persian War. Saratoga, won by one of the colonists most renowned war heroes before he became his nations most vile traitor. Hastings ensured the Normans success in England and changed the course of British history. Waterloo, which marked the reshaping of the European continent and Napoleons doom, has now become part of the English lexicon.
