The story of Julius Caesar
The story of Julius Caesar took place in Ancient Rome. The people, impressed with Caesars' accomplishments, wanted him to become king. A senator named Cassius didn't want this to happen. During the Feast of Lupercal, an old man came up to Caesar and told him to beware the Ides of March. The crowd discarded that comment and proceeded the march. Cassius and Brutus stayed behind and discussed if they should kill Caesar. Cassius got the other senators together to murder Caesar and his right-hand man, Mark Antony to reform the republic.
The conspirators meet in Brutus's orchard. There Brutus confirmed that he was with them. Meanwhile, Caesar's wife was having bad dreams. She dreamed that Caesar would be killed. She begged him not to go to the Capital that day, but Caesar went anyway. As Caesar was about to enter the Capital, a man ran up to warn him with a note that told that he was to be murdered. Caesar though, didn't take the note. He past the old man who said to him "It is the Ides of March." Caesar also ignored him and entered the Capital. Shortly after that, the conspirators set on him and stabbed him with many knives. The last person to stab Caesar was Brutus. Just before Brutus killed him, Caesar said, "Et tu, Brute?" which means "You to, Brutus?"
When Mark Antony saw what had been done to Caesar, he asked Brutus to kill him. But Brutus made join the "Givers of Liberty." But secretly, Antony vowed to make Italy bleed for this crime. Meanwhile, Brutus was explaining to the citizens why they had killed Caesar. The crowd was satisfied with his explanation. But then Antony spoke of how much he had loved Caesar. The citizens were moved by Antony and tried to kill the conspirators. The conspirators fled the city and raised their armies to retake Rome.
Meanwhile, Antony formed an alliance with Octavius, Caesar's rightful heir. They took the money left for the citizens from Caesar to pay for their legions, or soldiers. Cassius and Brutus were arguing about raising money for armies. But then, Brutus stopped fighting. His wife, Portia, had killed herself. As Cassius comforted him, a messenger came carrying news that Antony was marching toward Phillipi. The conspirators decided to march and meet them.
The battle started at dawn and raged all day long. But Brutus and Cassius's armies were tired from their long march. By evening, the conspirators had been defeated. The legions in Cassius and Brutus's armies that hadn't been killed, killed themselves, rather then witness the fall of the Roman Republic. Octavius wanted to celebrate at once, but Antony paused to honor the dead Brutus, who had been motivated to kill Caesar from his love for Rome and it's people.
