Who built Tikal?

Tikal was one of the largest of the classic Maya cities, and capital of a conquest state that became one of the most powerful kingdoms of the ancient Maya. The name Tikal is a modern one given to the site by explorers. The Mayan naming is thought to be Yax Mutul. Originally, the site was ideal for agriculture and trade, so a city rising from settlements in the area was a natural progression.

How do communities become ghost towns?

There are several reasons as to why communities become ghost towns. Some became ghost towns when railroad companies came through and did not place tracks near the town which caused them to become abandoned. If it was a mining town, then the mine could have dried up forcing residents to move elsewhere. Floods, fire and disease is another cause and with the advent of freeways, many towns were not close enough to these superhighways which caused them to become extinct. Route 66 is famous for old abandoned towns that became this way because the new highways did not come close enough to draw traffic to the community and people tend to move closer to the freeways for convenience. Sometimes small towns become extinct because an industry that was the lifeblood of the community pulled up and moved elsewhere. Small towns are also notorious for dying out when the younger people move elsewhere to find better jobs and as older residents get older and die off, there is no one to keep the town going, so it begins to die. Check out the movie "Return to Bountyville" its about an old woman who goes back to her old town that is now deserted. She makes a long pilgrimage to this town only to see it completely deserted and a former shell of itself.

Why did the Hessians fight in the war?

The Hessians were auxilliary troops from Hess, a state in what is now Germany (The term "Hessian" is now used to refer to all German troops deployed by the Crown in the American Revolution, although not all of them were necessarily from Hess). They were most notably "rented" out by their rulers to the British during the American revolution. A large number of these young soldiers 'deserted' from their units when they left to go back to Germany and settled in the American colonies. Many of those joined the Pennsylvania Dutch communities to be with fellow German speakers. Thus, many modern day Americans of German descent can trace their roots back to the Hessians.

What was the farthest point Napoleon's armies reached in Russia?

Moscow. The city was largely deserted. A major fire left it uninhabitable and the French decided to go home ! Too late, too late, the Russian winter was upon them and the Cossack raiders harried them all the way back to Poland: Many, many perished through attrition, starvation & the predation of the pursuing Russian forces. Marshal Ney was heroic. Napoleon left the Armee to return to France, ostensibly to raise new troops. After a brief rally they were cornered and heavily defeated at the Battle of the Nations, a massive 3 day conflict in September 1813.
