The Roman Empire. Or Republic. Or... Which Was It?

Who and what exactly constituted the Roman republic? Mr. Green begins this history presentation by detailing Julius Caesar's rise to power and his impact on the republic. He reviews government structure and leadership roles, achievements of Caesar's rule, and finally a discussion on the general value of the Roman republic and whether or not it was worth preserving.
