During the War of 1812, the British attacked the heart of our nation, Washington D.C. They were frustrated from the burning of their federal buildings in York, Canada, which is present day Toronto ,so they thought burning down the capitol was the best revenge. During the three days they were in the city, they set fire to most of it causing the majority of the small population to flee. When the citizens started to return, they found their homes and lives destroyed. The destructive actions from the British were brutal and set us up for a long road to recovering the nation’s capitol.

Emperor Diocletian (284-305) was also notorious for the persecution of Christians. A fire broke out in his palace which caused him great anger. Like the Romans did to the Christians when Nero was in rule, they blamed them for the fire.

In his lifetime Antoninus fully justified the honorific surname of Pius, bestowed on him by the senate: his death, unlike that of most other emperors, was appropriately calm and dignified. The temple of Faustina was built by emperor Antoninus Pius in honour to his late wife Faustina in AD 141. Emperor Antoninus deified his wife and had this temple built in order to honor her. When he died, the Roman Senate dedicated the Temple to the both of them and it became known as Temple of Antoninus and Faustina Historians consider The Temple of Divus Antoninus Pius and Diva Faustina to be one of Antoninus Pius greatest creations. It is the best preserved building in the Roman Forum.

This created rage and the Visgoths began to fight back against the Empire. The Visgoth King Alaric led an attack on “the eternal city”, Rome, and ended up ransacking the city of Rome in 410 CE (Andrews and Damen). On the other side of the Roman Empire, Vandals disguised as pirates continued to disrupt trade within and outside of Roman borders. “Vandals’ attacks involved prolonged, physical ruin,” says Damen, “ a destruction so complete and indiscriminate, so emblematic of wonton atrocity.” That aided the movement of the Visgoths and other Germanic tribes, that later ended the empiric reign over Rome. A Germanic leader Odoacer led a revolt and killed off the last Roman Emperor Romulus Augustus, in 476 CE, which was the last emperor to ever rule the Roman Empire.
The text consistently emphasizes certain traits of the emperor, in particular fairness, mercy, and a deep respect for traditional values. The text makes a concerted effort, at showing Augustus to be a restorer and upholder of the traditional republic, rather than a reformer or destroyer. His deep respect for the Senate is especially emphasized. The names of the Consuls, who were his “colleagues”, are included in almost all of the main events of Augustus’s life, and the emperor explicitly states that although he had more “influence” than any other Roman, he had no “greater power”, than each of his colleagues, in each magistracy.
