Transcript of Julius Caesar

The Conquest of Gaul (58-51 B.C.)
Caesar was the right match for the Vercingetorix. This started the Gallic War. One of the best strategies of all that Caesar used was the trap the Guals in there on walls. The Veringetorix and Caeser soon realized that the only way to win this battle was outlast starvation. The Guals thought they had enough bread and rice to supply to last them a good while. Turns out it wasn't gonna last as long as this took. The Vercingetorix first sent the Gallic army out of the city walls to try to escape Caeser's 12ft tall wall that also had sharp wood attached similar bob wire to go look for more food for the colony. Caesar's army soon slaughtered the Gallic army. This is where the thought of the Gauls being cannibals comes from because they went out and brought back the dead bodies into the city walls and were suck eating them. The second attempt was when the Vercingetorix sent a second army to bring back help from other local Gallic tribes, this made Caesar build a second wall. Help soon came but was later defeated by Caesar and his army. That's when the Vercingetorix realized that he lost war. He walked out of the city walls and just gave up. He was taken back to Rome and publicly assassinated.
Assassination
A conspiracy was formed against Julius Caesar involving two members of the Senate, Cassius and Marcus Brutus. Eventually there were sixty conspirators. The murder eventually happened when the Senate gathered for a meeting in Pompey's theater, a couple of people involved in the conspiracy soon stabbed Caesar to death. Caesar died on the "Ides of March" (March 15),44 B.C.
Caesar's Reforms
During Caesar's dictatorship he devoted his thoughts and time to reforms. One of his most important reforms was to establish colonies on Italy and the provinces to deal with the major problem of the urban poor and the landless ex-soldiers.

The colonies soon became very important places in the romanization of the provinces. Caesar also fixed the long-term problem of debt. He also increased the number public buildings in Rome.
