Today in History: September 29

September 29, 480 BCE: The Greek fleet under Themistocles defeated the Persian fleet under Xerxes I in the Battle of Salamis. The battle was very important historically because it was the last time in history that an army used a type of sausage as its primary weapon. After conquering much of the known world, the Persians discovered to their chagrin that salamis are no match for swords in battle.
