Who were the Spartans?
Spartan boys were been taken away by their family left as seven years old. They were trained only for war. They had no luxuries, and left their hair long. They became as police men and became soldiers
The Spartan men were trained only fighting and that's all, either for their city or anyone else who would pay them. The other work was done by slaves captured by spartan soldiers and they were called Helots.
The women of Sparta feasted and celebrated when a son who won a battle. But if their sons were defeated, they could be killed by their mothers in shame.
