  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here is a long story about Alexander, but if you slide down near the bottom, after "The Jouney" it will be the 2nd pragraph, and is below a diagram of the desert. It was a valiant effort to show his soldiers that if they could not drink, he would not either.
