Storyboard Text

  • The battle between Carthage and Rome was the first of 3 wars, the Punic wars. The first Punic war was fought for control of Sicily and Corsica.
  • After their fight over who Sicily belonged to, Rome and Carthage went to war for Sicily.
  • You lier! No its not!
  • Sicily Is Ours!
  • During this war, Rome failed to take complete control of Sicily but then opened up a way to Corsica which was also under Carthaginian control.
  • Here, Rome used their land skills on the waters.
  •  A second Roman fleet sailed in 256 and established a beachhead in Africa.
  • Carthage was prepared to surrender to Rome, but the terms offered by Rome were too severe, and in 255 Carthage attacked with a new army with cavalry and elephants and forced the invaders to the sea.
  • The battle for Sicily resumed in 254 but finally ended in 241, when a fleet of 200 warships gave the Romans undisputed control of Sicily and Corsica. One year later Carthage surrendered, giving Sicily and the Lipari Islands to Rome and agreeing to pay a fine .
