The Greed of Great Kings

The writings of America's founding fathers and the architecture of our great buildings point back to the city of Athens and that city was possible because of the greed of great kings, the courage of a rag-tag bunch of divided city-states and a tight bay where a great armada could not move. All of this and more awaits in one of the greatest stories ever told.
