The assassination of JFK, It is the biggest most significant event of modern times as tragic as it was, but think of being there and knowing that you could alter history by stopping it. And if you mean witness history without knowledge of its outcome, my answer would be sitting on the moon as the Eagle landed, would be awesome just to sit on the moon checking out Earth!  But yes, the lunar landing and first step by Man on the moon.....Wow!!!

LOL-- my kids think that I'm so old I watched the extinction of the dinosaurs come about. I really would have loved to watch the building of the pyramids, esp the largest one, just to see what their technology for engineering actually was like.

If I could witness any events, I would witness the classical concerts of Mozart, Beethoven, Litz, Bach, and many others.

Also, since i'm a classical guitarist, I would appreciate seeing concerts of the old classical guitarists, like Fernando Sor, Mauro Giuliani, Francisco Tarraga, etc.

It would be the sermon on the mount with Jesus. I think that what He had to say was so very important, I would have liked to hear it in person to know that He actually said what he said, and to see him say it, His expression as He said it. That would be so awesome.

That would be awesome! I wish I had thought of that. Can you imagine the charisma that Jesus had?

A Shakespeare play at the Globe theatre during Shakespeare's time. What were they really like? How would they compare to how they are presented today? There is suggestion that the 'groundlings' who stood make the experience something as a mosh pit at a wrestling match - is that true? I just wonder about the personna of Shakespeare and the real thing. History has such a way of erroding events over time...

I guess the Crucifixion of Christ would be a pretty interest scene to witness.

Not only did I enjoy watching The Passion of the Christ, but I'm also quite interested in early Christianity and the origin of religions - so I think this would be a pretty important event to experience.

And, although the first rule of time travel is "don't mess with the past or you will change things in the future", I wonder what would happen if I took out all the Roman soldiers at Golgotha and freed Jesus from his captors. How would the world be different if Jesus hadn't been crucified that day?

  The responsibility of changing the past aside, I suppose seeing a Mayan ritual sacrifice would do.  It supposedly last all day and involves some tripy stuff.

I am a believer in Christ, so for me, it would be humbling and awe inspiring to witness the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ, in whom the entire world was transformed and given the gift of salvation! The one who defeated death and rose again. Wow.

Secondarily, the creation of the universe, earth, mankind and what life was like back in the perfection of Eden.

The beginning, in doing so, solving all religious conflict and questioning. Be it God, the big bang, etc. This monumental event is something no one can speak on behind evidential evidence, but mere theories. I want the truth. I want to be enlightened.
