Trojan War

The Trojan War took place more than a few
thousand years ago in ancient Greece. It was a
war waged by the Greeks on the city of Troy.
This war was said to have lasted ten years. It
was caused by the abduction of Helen by Paris.
Helen at the time was married to King Menalaus
of Sparta. To avenge the kidnapping King
Agamemnon of Mycenae and the warriors of
Odysseus and Archilles followed Helen and Paris
back to Troy and waged war upon the city for
ten years. One day, the warriors thought of an
idea. They built a giant hallow wooden horse
witch everyone piled into. Then they set it
outside the gates of Troy. When Paris saw this
horse he thought it was a gift and he had won the
war he brought into the middle of the city. When
night fell the belligerent men inside crawled out
and conquered the city of Troy, then was the ten
year war finally over. Although the Trojan war
