Answer ONE of the following questions , writing roughly 3 1/2-5 pages for your answer. Your submissions should be 12pt font double spaced. Use both of your textbooks (as well as any files/lectures provided on Canvas) to answer the question (if you are using any other outside sources, make sure that they are academic/peer-reviewed ones). Use your own words, and make sure to cite your sources.
In text citation is to be MLA style, i.e. (Boatwright 2011, 52). Assignments that do not have in-text citation as well as a Works Cited page will receive a “0” grade. Your submission must use at least two (2) secondary sources (i.e. articles/textbooks of an academic caliber) and one (1) primary source (i.e. a source written at the time such as Livy, Caesar, Polybius, etc.).
Submit your finished work by Sunday, 11:59PM on Canvas in a Word Document:
- Discuss how Caesar took over Gaul (be specific). How did he enhance his image and prestige in doing so? What were the positive consequences of his conquest? What were the negative consequences of his conquest?
- Describe the Fall of the First Triumvirate. What efforts were made to preserve it. What were the reasons for its failure? Who do you think was in the right in the conflict that arose: Caesar and his allies, or Pompey and the Optimates?
