  • 264 B.C was the first Punic war. Romans expanded their fleet to 200 ships. These ships had a hook on the end of them so they could ram the hooks into the ships of Carthage so they would sink. That was the first Punic war. Romans took a victory.

  • We will get revenge!!!
  • The second Punic war started in 219 B.C. Rome tricked Hannibal was a Carthaginian general into going on a wild goose chase, keeping his army just outside of striking distance.
