The moment Julius Ceaser crossed the Rubicon. Death of Alexander the Great. Battle of Waterloo (This would be the one I would pick if I HAD to).

The Battle of Stamford Bridge maybe. Or the event that was the field of the cloth of gold, which was supposedly awe inspiring.
I've driven over said bridge many times

Oh, yes. I would like to see Freeborn John vs the Star Chamber.

Oh, and as Shambles has started with the sad ones, I'd like to be in Salisbury, Rhodesia, 1980, when Robert Mugabe wins his election by force of arms.
In that case, I'd like to have been in Tibet when China invaded on October 7, 1950, and to have been joined by the SAS. (Good shout on the Mugabe front)

Its not a moment exactly, but more like six years!

I would like to have experienced the Second World War...to fight for my country and live the most changing events of recent history and certainly the 20th century! :eek3:

There are loads of such moments, for example the first moon landing and to be in New York on 9/11.

I think we're talking about events that you're only allowed to observe, already knowing the catastrophe that is about to unfold, and having no impact on it whatsoever, rather than imagining ourselves fighting a guerilla war against the People's Liberation Army

Just one then is would have to be the Roman Siege of London aaround 44AD (not sure of exact date), when the Emperor decided to come along and attack with elephants. Would be quite a sight

The resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

When I saw the title of this thread I automatically thought Martin Luther King's 'I have a dream' speech. Such a momentous occasion in history... would have been amazing standing in that crowd.
Great minds...:yep:

Martin Luther King is a vastly overrated character who shouldn't be worshipped as he is now. He supported affirmative action policies, for example.
