Storyboard Text

  • 1st Punic War
  • Attack the Romans!
  • 2nd Punic War
  • How will we get through the wall?
  • 3rd Punic War
  • You will surrender and give your land to the Roman Republic!
  • The first war started because the Romans feared the city of Carthage, its people and they wanted the granaries in Sicily. The Romans won the war by developing a corvus or bridge that spread across two battle ships. They received a peace treaty with Carthage. 
  • The second war started because the new ruler of Carthage, Hannibal, wanted to get revenge on Rome for attacking them. The Romans won because the wall was blocking Hannibal's army and they attacked Carthage while Hannibal's army was in Rome. The Romans received huge sums of money and natural resources from Carthage.
  • The third war started because the Romans feared Carthage would attack them again. They burned the Carthage fields and put salt to prevent crops from growing, killed many people and sold the rest into slavery. The Romans received more land and power.
