Is the story-line of the Iliad historically acurate?

I am getting into the story of the Iliad.<br />This %@*&^* Agamemnon who supposedly is on an honourable mision but kidnaps the daughter of a priest doing it.<br />I wish I could read Greek a little faster in order to find out what happens next.<br />I am wondering if the Iliad is historically acurate or if there was a lot of "poetic license used.

Homeschooling (from Third Declension)

Continued from Third Declension, Learning Latin Forum...<br /><br />Yes, I live in Alabama, America. Homeschooling is becoming more common now, but when I started, it was still outside of what normal, acceptable people did. Not even my grandparents thought we'd make it, but we did...I just took my standardized graduation test a couple of weeks ago (a year late, unfortunately, because it's expensive, and I had to save up for it), and I should know ...

Comma vs. period (was: thorough Greek grammar)

The Netherlands, actually. It has been some time, but the Dutch state originated from a war against the Spanish.<br />I think continental Europe uses a comma instead of a period in this context.<br /><br />Ptolemaios
