Story of the World Vol 1 Ch 27

The Rise of Rome  

We have learned about several large empires that rose and then was conquered. That seems to be what the ancient world was like, one king comes along and battles another, builds his empire and then loses his empire.  Chapter 27 talks about another empire - Rome. Rome was one of the biggest and strongest of the empires that we have learned about so far. It grew to be bigger than Alexander's empire and it lasted longer.
