To summarize:

How called the dwellers of Lyn-dun?
Great Homer's tale of Troy,
Illiad - pdurrant
Or country of the midnight sun -
Norway - Bookpossum
What doth all men Destroy?
Death - Bookpossum

Against it man hath dashed his foot,
This angel bears a spear!
In garden-glade where Lord Christ preyed
Gethsemene - pdurrant
What spawns dark stars and fear?
Night - pdurrant

This place the white Diana rose
Ephesus - Bookpossum
Of this, Dido bereft;
Where on four leaves good fortune grows
Ireland - Hamlet53
East, west, south - what is Left?
North - pdurrant

The Corsican was vanquished there,
Waterloo - Bookpossum
Oh, mother of all sin!
Eve - pdurrant
Find green the same as shiretown's name,
Lincoln - Bookpossum
Find Newgate Gaol, and win!

pdurrant has 5 points
Bookpossum has 5 points
Hamlet53 has 1 point

There are 5 points left, pluss decoding the message

Time for some hints:

How called the dwellers of Lyn-dun?
See previous post

Against it man hath dashed his foot,
See previous post

This angel bears a spear!
This is not a well-known angel like Gabriel or Michael, so I guess this one will get difficult. As a first hint I present to you a painting:

The spear reveals the true form of Satan in Milton's poem, Paradise Lost. There is another angel involved - Zephon.

Of this, Dido bereft;
See previous post

Find Newgate Gaol, and win!
Where could the gallows at Newgate be found?
