HISTORY #2:

Gaius Marius who is the man who organized the army into the best fighting machine on earth. At times it appeared nothing could withstand the mighty legions of Rome. It was Marius who changed the way the army organized itself. Men in the providences could now sign up for the army and after serving they could become Roman citizens. He would give veterans land for serving. He won the battle of Aquae Sextiae and Campi Raudii. Marius proposed a bill that effectively limited the influence of aristocrats on elections. He married into the family of Julius Caesar. He played a critical role in the destruction of the Roman Republic, and the birth of the Roman Empire
