In 1781 american patriot General Daniel Morgan defeated the british force in the Battle of Cowpens in South Carolina.

This was important because airmen now had a faster and more reliable way of communicating to each other, which meant that important decisions could be made a lot more quickly. Additionally, satellites enabled the US to put supplies where they needed them when they needed them. Today, the US has improved on these technologies, resulting in ever faster communication as well as precise airdrops for
The fundamental basis for Sulla’s rise to power was his success in the military, through his military ability he was able to win various wars for Rome gaining him favour from the senate leading to his rise to power. Sulla showcased his military ability in the Mithraic war, the social war and the civil war. In the Mithraic war Sulla was sent by the senate to defeat the Mithridates as they had extended in the Roman province of Asia.
Julius Caesar was very important because he helped Rome accomplish victory in many battle and wars, which include the conquest of Gaul and the Roman civil war when Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon. The conquest of Gaul was shortly after Caesar became governor of Gaul. Gaul was the area of land, which was south of the Alps and to the east of the Apennine mountains to as far as the Rubicon River. At the start it wasn’t even Caesar 's plan to capture Gaul, but the country Rumania, which was a country rich with precious metals. So Caesar looked forwards towards conquering the lands north of Italy, which made his first task putting together an army.
The American Revolution lasted from 1765 to 1783. This war was fought between the British and American Colonists due to the colonist’s desire to separate from the British. The devastating war was brutally bloody for both the Colonists and the British. The American Colonists were able to defeat the militarily stronger British by utilizing the hatred between the British and the French, having a stronger general, and using their knowledge of their homeland to fight against the British. First of all, the colonists were smart enough to use the animosity between the British and French for their own benefit.
However once Rome recognized the true threat they faced from Carthage they also began to expand their naval capabilities. They recognized that Carthage held an advantage on the sea due to their long history of seamanship so Roman ingenuity designed the the Corvus. This was 30 foot long gangway which could be lowered from the ship's bow on to the decks of enemy ships and secured with a huge metal spike allowing them to unleash a squadron of Roman fighters on-board the enemy ship. The Romans also copied the designs of ships they captured and Archemedes, who was the greatest inventor of the age, came up with many improvements and original designs that turned many ships into "machines of war". These innovations allowed Rome to finally become a strong and great naval power coupled with the ships confiscated from
In my opinion there are many reason why the colonists won the revolutionary war. Perhaps it was how familiar they were with the land, or their helpful french allies. One of the most important battles of the war was the battle of saratoga. To me this seems to be the most important battle and moment in the whole war. After the colonists defeated the English in the 2 battles of Saratoga, it proved to the french that the americans could win the war and the french should come to aid the americans.
The weapons that Greece used were spears and a shield. Rome used swords and shields. The Roman soldiers became the supreme predator of their day, unmatched in battle and relentless in conquest. The heavily outnumbered Greek warriors were called hoplites. They used superior tactics, training and arms to defeat two massive invasions.
The Revolutionary War was won by the Colonists against all odds. They were fighting a larger trained militia, with more funding and equipment, but the colonists won with there smarter guerrilla tactics over the British, there proparganda which sparked the revolution, the Sons of Liberty who rallied the colonists, and the committee of correspondence which unified the colonists. The American revolutionary war was more revolutionary then evolutionary because it showed that it is possible to gain your independence and plowed the way for America to become the great country it is
Horses are quite an overwhelming animal, with great strength and, if trained, can ‘pack a punch’ when fighting the natives. With this ability to flank they were able to catch the leader of the Aztecs- Montezuma, “ Cortes actually told Montezuma that he had discovered the treasure, and Montezuma asked only that the spaniards not disturb or take any gorgeous and revered featherwork, which rightfully belonged not to him but to his gods. The gold he said, they could keep” (Conquistadors, Buddy levy, 2008).But there was no greater advantage that the Spanish had over the Native Americans than immunity to diseases (most important, as diseases moved faster that armies could spread). Even though the conquistadors had all of these advantages, they were still were only just beating the Aztecs towards the end of the conquest, so they sought the help of others. This included the neighbouring tribes of the Aztecs like the Toltecs, the Mixtecs, Zapotecs, as well as others that joined with approximately one thousand
Pompey was viewed as a fantastic and fair leader and repaid the people with the goodwill that they had shown him. Senators, equestrians and tribuni aerarii were made equal and 64 new Senators were enrolled, all in Pompey’s debt. All these laws replaced those that had been established by Sulla and virtually restored the earlier Republican system. Interestingly,
This paper will discuss Canto XXIV and XXV of Dante’s Inferno, where the poet presents a character named Vanni Fucci. Superficially, Vanni Fucci seems to be motivated by thievery. Deeper insight gained from close reading reveals, however, that Vanni Fucci has lost the good of the intellect in the following sense that he is a megalomaniac and believes that he is to be a ruler of Florence. This thesis will be demonstrated by means of principles of close reading, including details, misprision and under-specification. (TRANSISITION)
The goal of the conspirators is to stop Julius Caesar from becoming king of Rome. They want to do this because they do not want one person in Rome to have all the power. The conspirators are not the only ones who do not want Caesar to become king. Many of the commoners would agree with what they are doing. They want the senate to be in control.
Due to his prominence in society, and his naivety, he gets defeated by the Romans, which leads to his downfall. Marcus Brutus is a noble citizen of Rome and a prominent leader who leads the conspirators in the assassination of Julius Caesar. He is naive because he thought everything in the world was good. Brutus thought no one would ever deceive him, which led to his downfall and later his defeat. Marcus Brutus exemplifies a tragic hero because he was killed because due to his tragic flaw.
