The Roman Baths The Roman baths are immense and outstanding complex structures designed for bathing, relaxing, and socializing. The Romans believed the baths were essential to Roman civilization and that they were an example of their superiority and power. The Roman baths are an important part of daily life in ancient Rome’s architecture and social role, since it fulfilled Romans’ concerns about health and cleanliness, as well as allow all social classes to mix freely, relax, communicate, and bathe while being drivers of the evolution of architecture.

Expectedly, this shattered the Confederacy’s command center. The Celtic fighting style made 55 percent of all figure heads of the war to die mainly because they were primary targets, and when a figure head is in the front, the opposing team would most obviously try their best to take him down first. However, the good outcome of this strategy is that it can psychologically break the opposing team effectively. Like when the Union attempted to fight the Confederacy at Manassas, but failed because when they saw the amount of soldiers lined up, causing psychological distress.
