Here is the scenario. Some brilliant person has invented a time machine.
It allows you go back in time to witness historical events.
It only allows you to witness the event; it does not allow you to participate in any way, you cannot do anything at all to actually change history (that may be in a later timewaster I’ll post).
It does not allow you to go forward in time.
You have the use of this time machine to go back in time to witness three events.
Pick three historical events you would choose. I"ll go first.
I’d be at Pearl Harbor on 7 December 1941, to see the Japanese attack go down. If possible, I’d like to be in about 15 different places all at the same time. . .
I’d be on the balcony of the Casa Rosada in downtown Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 17 October 1945, as Juan Peron makes his triumphal return to power in front of a crowd of thousands of celebrating people.
April 1241 A.D. I’d be in eastern Europe to witness a two-part battle. On 9 April I’d be at Leignitz in what is now Poland, to witness one part of Batu Khan’s Mongol army, led by Baidar and Kadan, defeat the Teutonic Knights, and then on 11 April I’d be at Mohi, on the banks of the Sayo River in what is now Hungary, to watch the other (larger) part of the Mongol army, led by the incomparable Subedei, defeat the Hungarians under King Bela IV.
What three events would you choose?
