It changed the worlds society forever.

The start:

Medieval Secret


ASSASSINS

      

       
        Assassins were like robin hood but more energetic and lethal. The Assassins were from the Middle East and Europe. They were hired in 900-1600's. The Assassin mostly rescued civilians from corrupted knights. They were hired for targets and rescue and they get paid for their job. I cant really show proof because the knights and Templar burned the assassin books. The Templar were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian Military orders. The knights and Templar were very angry about the Assassins for killing their men and captains. Sometimes the Assassins target brutal Kings such as King Richard. However,  never successfully took a corrupted king's life. The Assassins today are similar to spies. An Assassin's job was skillful because they can climb walls, blend with the crowd, use anything as useful as a weapon and can easily escape a scene. They were a historical medieval secret. They dressed in black or white hoods. Some Assassins would sometimes dress as civilian. Other Assassins wore the easily spotted white because they can blend in with medieval priests and nuns.

It was a terrible bloody and tyranny war.







During the war the south made it The Confederate States Of America with their president Jefferson Davis.

Overall there was no slavery done on the south because the north won.
