This was what I was afraid of, now I can’t let this happen. This can ruin everything. Brutus gives Antony restrictions of his speech. Brutus tells Anthony that he can’t blame us for the assassination and he must tell the Roman people gave him permission to make this funeral speech. I think that Antony is up to something.
Immediately after election, Opimius cancelled several of Gracchus’ laws an called into question his actions in Carthage, “omitting nothing that was likely to irritate him.” A rabble-rouser might have used this as ammunition to riot or try and overthrow the government but Gaius “bore these things very patiently,” and only “at the instigation of his friends,” gathered his supporters to oppose the consul’s decisions. At the meeting of both parties one of the consul’s attendants made an obscene gesture and was killed on the spot by Gracchus’ party. As custom of his character, Gaius was very saddened and “severely reprimanded his own party,” for this action that would eventually lead to his death because Opimius was rousing his party into a frenzy at that same moment. When the two parties met, Gaius could not be convinced to bring any arms except a small dagger under his cloak. Gaius wanted to turn himself in to avoid fighting but his loyal supporters would not let this happen and after Opimius denied the proposals of agreement for the second time he sent his troops after Gaius and his party.
Shell shock was a term only associated with World War one due to the major impact it had throughout the war. It was specifically used in Britain to express a psychological breakdown for a soldier from stress and trauma and fear from battles and fighting. It was hard to cure them as people and doctors considered them to be cowards therefore refused to offer help. Some men only received help depending on their high class or rank in the community, while others were even put on trial and even executed for being ‘cowards’. Shell shock caused a lot of problems and casualties for the country and for the war.
Augustus is remarkable because unlike the other politicians that came before him once he gained power he was able to keep it. Augustus was a masterful politician in that he shared just enough power with the senate, the upper class that assassination attempts were few and far between, he also created a public figure that
When the servant came back he told Caesar that the priests did not want him to to go out. Caesar thought that they just said that to test his bravery, which was not the case. Then Decius came over and got Caesar to change his mind and he went out of the house, only to be killed in the next
While Billy was still with his group traveling behind enemy line, a shooting occur, four shot was fired at Billy’s group. “The third was for the [Billy]”, it missed so “Billy stood there politely, giving the marksman another chance.”(33) Billy is giving a shooter another shot because he felt bad for the shoot. The war scar Billy so much that it had strip away Billy’s will to give and left sourless in a field of death.Also when Billy have been captured and sent into a concentration camp, a place filled with dying Russian, he was given a new coat to keep warm. The coat he got "had a fur collar and a lining of crimson silk, and had appartently been made for an impresario about as big as an organ-grinder’s monkey”(90) And he worn pretty dress though the camp filled with the dead and dying. Again it shows the confusion of the war that has taken away Billy’s sense and strip away who Billy is.
When battle breaks out, Himmelstoss pretends to be hurt and hides in order to get out of fighting. He acts as a big, mean, and forceful guy until he feels the same fear and terror as the rest of the soldiers in the trenches do. Himmelstoss spoke about being courageous and how nothing scares him, but once he had to experience war for himself he realized it is not that easy to be
We have a statement from one of the Major Generals “It is much more civilised in this district no more inadequate behaviour.” My final point proving Cromwell to be a villain is when Cromwell used his army when he wanted to take power that he couldn’t get lawfully. One thing Cromwell could do is take advantage of what he had got, this was the army. For an example he disagreed with parliament twice so on both occasions he marched in to Parliament with his army behind ordering parliament to be shut down. This shows he would use his advantages to get what he wants without caring about the civilians who look up to him and think he is a

The result of that was Romeo had been banished for murdering Tybalt.
The Aztec’s were still angry with the Spanish and were planning on killing them all. By letting them back into the city the Spanish horses and weapons would be less effective. The Aztec’s were then able force in the Palace walls and the Spanish began to fear what was to happen next for they knew that the Aztec’s wanted them all dead. (Burkholder and Johnson p. 58) According to Díaz’s manuscript, the Spanish wanted to declare peace with the Aztec’s so that they could leave Mexico. In order to do this, they needed Montezuma to tell his people to cease the war.
