To right their Nation the Plebeians went on a general strike. In 494 B.C. the Plebeians marched out of Rome and threatened to make a new city. They agreed to cancel all dept's and release people who were put in jail for dept's. Plebeians achieved further goals. The strike terrified Partricans . Rome received the first written law code in 451-50 B.C.
