Great Wall Of China
Qin Shi Huang, CA. 221 B.C. was the first Emperor to commission the linking of already existing walls to be joined as one long defensive wall. The Great Wall of China is not one wall, but several tribal walls linked together by decrees of several Emperors of China. In 221 B.C. the state of Qin succeeded in unifying China. The unification of the Great Wall took about 2000 years, over many dynasties.
The wall is about 3000 miles long or 1500 miles on a straight line. About half the original wall stands today.
The Buddha, (the one who woke up: CA-563 - 483 B.C.) - Siddhartha Gautama Buddha is said to have found enlightenment while sitting under a tree. He then sat teaching his philosophy of the path to enlightenment. Today, Buddhism still remains a major Eastern philosophy, with many followers throughout the world.
