People of Rome come and visit Mt. Vesuvius. 106 years ago this volcano erupted and covered this city in a extremely thick layer of ash. This volcano is an iconic Roman icon. Think someday students may do reports on Mt. Vesuvuius and you will be able to say that you have personally been on the mountian. Come visit Mt. Vesuvius and become a part of history!

Anger in the Empire

Patricians watch out! The plebeians are on the rise and they're not going to stop until they get there way. They have had enough of the Patricians runninging the government and they want change! Many Patricians say that military force should be used, others think that the laws should be changed. No matter what the solution may be something is going to have to change.

Are you tired of waiting for a magistrate who will things done, well wait no more Maximus has come to help. He promises to be a great military leader be a fair judge, take care of the finances (lower taxes) and would organize the government well. So vote for Maximus the and he won't raise the taximus.

Julius Caesar

July 100 BC, March 15, 44 BC. Yesterday the great Julius Caesar was assassinated. He was well liked among the people of Rome and had many great accomplishments. Some major accomplishments in Julius life were being a general ,a statesman, a lawyer,an orator, and historian. He also never lost a war and he created a Acta Diurna (a news sheet informing the people what the Senate and assembly where up to). Julius will not be forgotten and I would bet that a famous book called 'Julius Caesar' might be written by a famous author sometime in the future.

Christianity

Many people have mixed feelings about Christianity throughout the empire. I am writing this to express my feelings on Christianity. Diocletian persecuted the Christians thinking that the people of Rome would become to scared to become Christian. As we all know his plan backfired and many people thought that if these people were willing to die for their faith it must be real. I am one of those people. I believe that Christians should be able to practise their religion freely. I wanted to express my feelings about this topic with you and I hope all non Christians will take this into consideration.

People of Rome beware the Barbarians are on the move! These barbaric people have been know as good fighters, fearless, strong, and unstoppable! Some Barbarians have even been known to tear people apart! Today the Vandal tribe took over more land in the southern part of the Empire. If we don't stop them now the empire might decline split into two and the side that makes it may change its name!
