From a scientific perspective I would say that the most important event in history was the Big Bang. But you were probably asking about human history, not cosmic history. The human race as we know it (homo Sapiens) probably resulted from a single mutation in an earlier hominid species, and that migh…t have been the most important event in human history, although we have no historical record of it. Since that is a hypothetical event, it may also not be what you are looking for. Limiting myself to known historical events, the choice is tremendously debatable, but I tend to think that the adoption of monotheism by the ancient tribes of Israel may have proved to be the most important event, in terms of its consequences for human history. There really is no answer for that question. It all depends on perspective and focus. Try to narrow it down a bit. The "Big Bang" never happened. The universe, earth, and everything else isn't an accident. God created each and every single thing for a reason. If you don't believe me, that's your problem. (MORE)
"I think the world wars had the most impact" -BY Indiandi- I think that the fact Hitler became leader was the most changing thing in the 20th centur, because then it wouldn't have led on to the discrimination against the Jews, or even the World Wars might not have happened. You can really think …whatever you like, because they are all linked together in someway or another. Even the space race was tied in with Hitler becoming leader. If he hadnt have become leader, there mgiht have never been a WorldWar. As Hitler DID become there WAS a worldwar. And so the technology of that time was being produced and made quicker than ever, and so new ideas and technology came into place. Hence the first man on the moon. - To Indiandi- the first world war would have happened regardless of whether HItler came into power and what cause Hitler to come into power was the wall street crash which was when America's economy crashed. Germany had a loan from America so naturally, when America needed money they asked Germany for their money back, causing Germany's economy to crash, causing German's to panic and therefore electing Hitler.

The battle at Lexington/concord because it was the first bigAmerican win. It proved to France that we deserved their suppliesand aid; they gave us aid after they knew our victory. The Battleof Yorktown is important because that was the war in which we wonour freedom.
the most important event of World War 2 is the Dropping of the Atomic Bombs because America dropped 2 bombs on Japan so the surrendered and because Germany were now fighting alone they surrendered. So it ended WW2
Probably the most important thing about the D Day landings was the fact that initially the Germans thought that it was a feint, a diversion. The deception was that the Germans were deceived into believing the Allies would land in the Pas de Calais region. FUSAG (First US Army Group) was a ficticious… formation created to divert attention into SE England. Bombing & destruction of strategic points in France prevented the Germans from bringing reserve formations to the Normandy area. The failure of the Dieppe Raid in 1942 had shown the capture of an intact French port was highly unlikely, therefore the establishment of 2 artificial harbours, called Mulberries, was essential. Although 1 was destroyed in a storm the Allies were supplied by the use of the Mulberry for many months. (MORE)
The Battle of Salamis emasculated the Persian naval force andenabled Greek naval dominance of the Aegean Sea. Addition Greece was a poor country incapable of supporting invasion forces,so when Persian King Xerxes invaded Greece in 480 BCE to establishan ethnic frontier in the west of his empire, …he had to rely onexternal resupply to support his 150,000 infantry, 30,000 cavalryand 600 warships with 120,000 crewmen. The distances were such thatwagons would have their load consumed in transit by the draughtanimals, so supply had necessarily to be by sea. The Persian warfleet was superior to the Greek one, so it provided bothoutflanking amphibious capability and protection for the resupplyfleet; the amphibious capability meant the Greek forces could notconcentrate, remaining at home defending their cities, and so ableto be picked off one by one. The Greek strategy was to neutralisethis war fleet, both to even up the operational mobility equationand, by depriving the Persians of supply, ultimately force theirwithdrawal. Given the inequality of the fleets, the Greeksdetermined to force sea engagements in narrow waters to minimisethe effect of the opposing superior ships and numbers: they closedthe land route to the south at the Thermopylai pass to force aPersian outflanking amphibious operation in the adjacent strait.When three days of naval engagements failed to give a Greekvictory, and the Thermopylai position was outflanked on land, thefleet withdrew to the strait between Salamis and Athens, and by astratagem of splitting the Persian fleet, defeated the main forceand so exposed the sea supply line. With no resupply, Xerxes wasobliged to take half his army back to Asia Minor and the remainingpart had to withdraw and winter in northern Greece. The followingspring the southern Greek states, no longer threatened by enemyamphibious landings, were able to concentrate in full strength atPlataia and defeat the remaining Persian army and its Greek allies.In parallel, the Greek naval forces captured the rump of thePersian fleet at Mykale in Asia Minor. Most Important Event Romantic stories of the stand at Thermopylai, based on it beingdesigned to defeat the invasion, conceal the real strategies ofboth adversaries. The centre of gravity of the might ofPersia outside Asia was its Egyptian, Phoenician andAsian-Greek war fleet. Its neutralisation at Salamis mandated a critical enemy land force reduction and removed thethreat of amphibious invasion of the Peloponnese states, allowingthem to concentrate against and defeat the reduced enemy landforces.

Through Henry VII's reign (the founder of the Tudor dynasty), the treaty of Medina de Campo was established with Spain to betroth Arthur, his eldest son to the Spanish princess, Kathereine of Aragon and the Treaty of Perputal Peace signed between him and his future son in law, James IV of Scots ceas…ed the warfare that had been raging between the two countries for over 200 years. Through Henry VII's son, Henry VIII's reign, his passionate fight to divorce Katherine of Aragon, his first wife in order to wed Anne Boleyn in turn lead to Protestanism and the Church of England getting its start for Henry VIII broke off from the Roman Catholic Church. Henry VIII however is most infamous for having married 6 times (Katherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr. Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard would later be executed, while Katherine of Aragon and Jane Seymours were devout Catholics that wished to preserve the 'true faith' and Catherine Parr fully embraced Protestantism. Through Henry VIII's son, Edward VI's reign, Protestantism was officially established in England, and also made Lady Jane Grey (his cousin who would later be known as the 9 Days Queen) his heir over his Catholic half sister, Mary I. Through Henry's VIII's daughter, Mary I's reign, she seeked to undo the Protestant changes over England and her having over 300 people burned at the stake for being leaders of the Protestant movement led her to be nicknamed 'Bloody Mary'. Through Henry VIII's other daughter, Elizabeth I's reign, she ordered the death of his cousin, Mary of Scots after the latter was accused of an assassination plot on Elizabeth's part. Elizabeth I reign also saw the start of England colonizing America, the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588, and a golden age which beheld England from 1558 until her death in 1603. (MORE)

Construction of Hadrian's Wall - marks the almost permanent border between Roman Britain and Scotland. Scotland as a consequence does not undergo as much Romanisation of its culture as England and Wales.. Kingdom of the Picts - formation of modern Scotland in border terms..

Jacobite Rebellion - Supporters of the Stuart monarchy rebel and invade England to restore the Stuart monarchy to the throne after the Glorious Revolution.

This was prior to the civil war ( 11 years later the civil war will start) so much of what happened was about slavery. In 1846 Dred Scott sued for his freedom in a Missouri Court and in 1852 the Missouri Supreme Court ruled against him. On March 1857 Chief Justice Taney of the United States Supreme …Court against Scott. He wrote that slaves were property. In 1853 the Kansas Nebraska act was passed and in 1855 Bleeding Kansas happened when the vote came to decide if Kansas would come in as slave or free state. On May 21, 1855 John Brown and his sons attack a settlement near Pottawatomie Creek and murdered 5 people. This won't be the last time John Brown is heard from. So, as you can see it wasn't one event but many in the 1850's that were important. Each of these will help lead the country towards civil war. (MORE)
