Rome was said to befounded by Romulus and Remus, they are the twin son of the god mars.
Theyfounded Rome about 753 B.C. Rome was known for its background. They spoke morethan five languages including: Italian, French, Spanish, Portuguese, andRomanian. Rome spent about 450 Year’s asa Roman Republic. During the Republic the Roman accomplished building the greatroads of Rome, the great arches, the aqueducts.
They even invented a publichealth system where you could get help if you were sick. The romans believedheavily in living a healthy life. In the middle of the Republic the 2 Consuls(which was like the presidents of Rome) made the very first Roman code of law.
Towards the end of the Republic the Roman military generals rises up and tookover Rome numerous times. Right before the Republic was to end Julius Caesarwas brutally stabbed to death. After the republic ends Caesar Augustus, JuliusCaesar’s nephew takes over Rome and leads Rome into a state of peace and Romebegan to prosper. Rome finally fell dueto bad leadership and civil war tore apart the riches of Rome. U.S.A.
Background. The land of the freehome of the brave was founded by none other than the founding fathers. Thefounding fathers are as follows: George Washington, was also our firstpresident before he fell ill. Also knowfor his outstanding performance in the revolutionary war. Thomas Jefferson whowas the third president and also the principal author of the Declaration ofIndependence. John Adams, Was the secondpresident of the United States. BenjaminFranklin, was the inventor of many things for example, lightning rod, bifocals,swimming flippers, the Franklin stove(kind of like the modern day wood stove.
) Also on the $100 bill. James Madison, who was the fourth president. JohnJay, who helped America gain itsindependence, and helped path a way to the constitution and was appointed asthe first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
And last but not least AlexanderHamilton. Rome and America’s government. The government thatthe early Roman state used was the form of having a leader or two consuls(that’s what they called back in the day), these two consuls or leaders ran thegovernment and the country and military. Then they had the senators who helpedor assisted in the ruling of the consuls and had to see weather or not what theconsuls I’d was good for them or not. Then the Romans had the tribunes who arethe people of the government who spoke for the poor people of Rome. Thetribunes could also protect the poor from the Senate if they are takingadvantage of the poor people. How is theAmerican government Ike this? The American government is similar to thisbecause we practically took it from them. The only way its different is that weonly have one president or consul.
Then we have the Senate, and then the houseof Representatives. The Supreme Court We also copied theway they handled law breakers or trials, in a court or in front of a judge orjudge. The Roman Supreme Court orPraetors as the early Romans liked to call them, acted as necessary on thepunishments of the people who broke the laws. The reason this sounds familiaris because we use the exact same system of a court as they did. The onlydifference in there is that today in America we have 9 justices. Did you knowthat there was never originally nine judges in the Supreme Court unit 1837.
Theoriginal number of justices in the beginning was 6. But later changed to 7 thento 9,and then to 10 but went. Back down to 9 after that. Twelve tables and the amendments and Constitution. The Roman governmentcreated a written code of law called the twelve tables, these 12 tables thatthey used were and are very similar to our modern day constitution. Did you know that one of the 12 tables, to beexact table 4, states that ” if a child is born deformed he shall be killed.”What kind of cruelty is that? And table 10 states that ” A woman is not to cryor wear at a funeral.
” Way of voting. The way the Americansand Roman voted on things is actually very very similar. The early romans couldvote for taxes to be passed or for the laws that are written to be written.That is similar with the United States votes for things. But once the people ofAmerica vote it has to go through the government and all that.
Religion. Although the Romansincluded Judaism in along with christianity we still have a pretty similarsystem today. The Romans of that time had said that all other gods are said tobe forbidden by christianity.
As in today’s christianity. We also only worshipour one and only true god. And today’s Religion of the United States isoverflowing with culture. Economy The Roman economy inRome was based on agriculture and trade. And in America’s economy aroundMinnesota it is based on agriculture and trade. Way of life The way of life forthe Romans is quite the same as the way of like in the United States.
They wealthier the Romans were the amount ofmore nice things they got and the higher the reputation of them. It is the sameway, if you have a lot of money in America you will have nice things and willhave achieved a good reputation and status. Wars. The wars of Rome weresort of similar in a way to the wars of America. The Civil wars of Rome werelike the Civil War of America although they didn’t fight for slaves they foughtfor land control and status.
The Punic wars of Rome are kind of like the WorldWars of America and others. They both were fighting for land masses. Andfighting, vowing for revenge. Houses The Romans houseswere similar to the houses of America. The wealthy got their big beautifulhouses while the poor people or the middle classes got their average house orsmall shack depending on how wealthy you are. They also had apartment likebuildings like the Aimee ones we have in America. How they gained independence The way the Romansgained their independence is very similar to the war America gained theirindependence. The Romans defeated the Etruscans of Italy and named theterritory Rome.
This was very similar to America. The way America gained itsindependence from Britain is a war. They fought the British from the sea andfrom land. And they both one those wars too!!!
