A moment becomes history
With this cut-out-sheet you have a piece of history to touch. The battle meant a turning point in the Roman policy about the Teutons. "Quintilius Varus - Give back the legions!" emperor Augustus shall have shouted when receiving the message of the defeat. Apart from a few revenge campaigns of the general Germanicus Roma gave up its plans of a province on the right side of the Rhine. If the battle had enden differently - probably our world would have looked differently today, too.
