  Lou Rawls' band didn't have an official name. His band included Jeff Coehlo on Piano & Keyboards, and longtime legendry guitarist David T. Walker. Forgive me for forgetting the names of the excellent percussionist and drummer. They all were an amazing team.
Calphurnia's incessant pleadings caused Caesar to decide upon staying behind. But, Decius Brutus arrived on the scene. He undid all the effect of Calphurnia and the interpretation of her dream.

Caesar's body lay at the base of Pompey's statue, at the Capitol.
Noble Romans as Flavius and Cassius feared that if Caesar will come to power, he will assume dictatorial powers and keep all Romans under 'servile fearfulness'. They were well aware of Caesar's nature which was like an 'adder' who was bound to harm people once he came to power. They thought that if...

Headopted another son, Gaius Julius Caesae Octavianus, who was reallyhis great nephew. He also believed that Marcus Brutus was hisillegitimate son because he had slept with his...
There are so many things, and many things that are still debated by historians. But I think the three greatest things Caesar did for Rome were: 1. Solving the massive debt crisis that many lower class Romans were chained to. His financial reforms are one of his most underrated achievements.2....
She cut herself on the thigh to prove her strength of character to  him
Possibly. If Caesar had read the letter that Artemidorous tried to give him listing the conspirators and their assassination plot.
Because he had been chosen to deliver the funeral oration as a consul for a consul, a friend for a friend and a Kinsman for a Kinsman. Being related to Caesar through the mother .
He declared himself dictator (normally 6 month tenure) for life.His opponents solved this problem by terminating his life.

Augustus was the first Roman Emperor from 27 B.C to 14 A.D.
Graft and other forms of political corruption and as one writer states "grumpy old men" caused the decline of the republic. The graft and payoffs speak for themselves. The aristocratic families were determined to hold on to power and have things according to tradition. Tradition meaning keeping...
Because Cassius is trying to manipulate Brutus, and uses his fatal flaw, which is honor, to lure him in their plan of killing Caesar. (I like the way honor is now a vice!)
Julius Caesar's main accomplishment was enlarging the Roman empire by his military conquests in Gaul. He was also the only man in Roman history to have been made a perpetual dictator. Perhaps his most lasting accomplishment was the establishment of the Julian Calendar. He had social reforms planned...
He was a brilliant military strategist and tactician, and a superb orator. He was also brilliant at dealing with the "mob" of the people.
Plebeians didn't have an actual role in the play. Although Plebeians were important they were the ones that Mark Antony and Brutus were trying to manipulate. Rome only runs in what the Plebeians say. If they say they don't want that person to be king;he will not, if they say he shall then he will....

Julius Caesar was bald and picked on a lot about it, also he had epilepsy

Cassius states that Caesar is no greater than he or Brutus (by birth), and is indeed a lesser man physically. So he feels it is wrong that he should be the one and only power in Rome, especially a Rome that was a Republic -- and therefore all Roman men share political equality (ideally). He also...
Titinius was a good friend of Cassius
Julius Caesar never declared himself anything except insulted. That's why he started the civil war by crossing the Rubicon. Any other position or honor that he held, such as dictator, was given to him by the senate.
He gave the jobless jobs, he set up new buildings, he made a wonderful military, and he set the stage for Roman emperors even though Rome began to fall after his rule.
They were both skilled military generals on the battlefield. The were both seen as successful leaders of the empire, Trajan being known to some as the greatest of Emperors. Both rulers expanded the empire by conquest and stretched over many other empires.
Act 3 , Scene 1 , Line 244
I'm really not so sure but I think the answer is the power of Caesar's ghost.
It is the play called Julius Ceasar
There may have been other legends about Caesar's birth, but the only one I'm aware of is the preposterous one that he was born by Cesarean section. Impossible, because in the ancient world what we know today as a C section, meant instant death for the mother. Julius Caesar's mother was alive and...
Alexander wanted to be remembered. He had to be greater than  Achilles to be remembered as the greatest.    Alexander's feats became the new model for ambitious Greeks and  Romans.    Caesar wanted to be greater than Alexander so he would be  remembered as the greatest. Having conquered...
Shakespeare was not trying to warn Caesar who died 16 centuries before he was born. Are you asking what the dramatic effect is of the warning Caesar receives from the soothsayer and from Calpurnia? Dramatically, Caesar's reaction to the warnings may show him to be conceited and arrogant (or...
  I dont think so. But once you have it you just learn to live with it coz its already a part of your life.
The first and second battles of Philippi took place in 42 BC.
It depends on the definition you want to use of "tragic hero". But Cassius is not much of a hero anyway you look at it. He is jealous of Caesar, a kind of low snivelling attitude. He is constantly suggesting the politically realistic but very unheroic line to Brutus. After the murder, he uses his...
Cassius was not being a good friend to Brutus. Cassius did not give Brutus money, although it turned out it was Cassius' bankers fault. And Cassius had not been around to comfort Brutus who had to deal with the loss of his wife.
His most influential person in his life was probably his first wife,Cornelia.
Before the Marian reform of 107 BC, Rome levied infantrymen from peasant-proprietors. After the reform, any fit Roman citizen of military age (17 to 46) could join the army

Believe it or not, Julius Caesar, one of the greatest military men of all time, was never in the army. Julius Caesar led an army. In Caesar's time, when a man reached the office of praetor and above, he could raise and lead an army. Caesar, as an ex-counsul, was given command of his legions by the...
Octavian/Augustus died of natural causes at the age of 77. According to the ancient writers, he caught a chill which turned to a fever. Today we could possibly say he died of pneumonia.
Excactly what the title says. It is about Caesar's war in Gaul.
Bold, mighty, puissant, valiant, tyrannical, ambitious, fearless, gentle(rarely).
Antony in his speech said that in Caesar's will it said he was going to give everyone gold/money etc.
Cicero was a noble and hot-headed senator who never liked to follow what other people started and was quite often miffed if anyone interrupted him. So, he did not have good relations with Caesar who imposed his decisions and did whatever he wished.
I believe in this context Caesar's ambition and thirst for power came at the price of death. His assassination is the repayment for his trespasses.
The Conspirators- a "knife" throwing booth right at the heart of Julius Caesar.
Julius Caesar seemed to have a "hit 'em hard and fast" philosophy about war. He was known for his fast marches enabling him to surprise the enemy. He also had the Roman attitude of winning at all costs. The siege of Alesia with its still traceable trenches is a prime example of this.
