Based on your reading of Scipio Africanus and Octavian , please answer the following questions: 1. Why did young Scipio refuse to accept the “corona civica” after the Battle of Ticinus where his father had been captured? He said the action was one that rewarded itself. 2. How did Scipio sway the army officers from rebellion after the Roman defeat at Cannae? He said that "Courage and action, not deliberation, are necessary in such a calamity." Scipio then helped to thwart the plot, exclaiming, "I swear that I will neither desert the cause of Rome, nor allow any other citizen of Rome to desert it." The terrified plotters gave up, taking an oath of allegiance instead. 3. How did Scipio defeat the Carthaginians in Spain (Iberia) whereby in 206 B.C.E. Spain would be in the hands of the Romans for the next 700 years? He defeated the Carthaginians in small pieces. He would break up his army into smaller numbers and go in from other angles. He caused them to backup into different lands.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
