Ten Great Events in History

Ten Great Events in History starts as follows:

The great events in history are those where, upon special occasions, a man or a people have made a stand against tyranny, and have preserved or advanced freedom for the people. Sometimes tyranny has taken the form of the oppression of the many by the few in the same nation, and sometimes it has been the oppression of a weak nation by a stronger one.

Johonnot's “Ten Great Events” are the following:

i.-- Defense of freedom by Greek valor
ii.-- Crusades and the Crusaders
iii.-- Defense of freedom in Alpine passes
iv.-- Bruce and Bannockburn
v.-- Christopher Columbus and the New World
vi.-- Defense of freedom on Dutch dikes
vii.-- The invincible armada
viii.-- Freedom's voyage to America
ix.-- Plassey; and how an empire was won
x.-- Lexington and Bunker hill
