3rd war rome vs carthage
the first war between carthage and rome started because carthage was getting bigger and better and rome felt threatened by them. rome didnt have as good of a navy as them but they did have a good army. rome found an abandoned ship and used that to help them fight. they built a corvus that was added to the front of the ship. that helped them defeat carthage and they then got sicily with signing a peace treaty.
the second war started because hannibal barca surpirsed attacked rome. rome felt threatened so they went after hannibal. hannibals army had elephants ready to deafeat rome but they couldnt because they didnt have the heavy equipment to take down the walls. carthage then surrendered and rome got money, gold, silver, iron, and copper from carthage and also spain.
carthage was gaining power so romans attacked. the romans burned their cities down and put salt in their fields. rome easily wonand gained the entire medertarranean sea.
