Cassius played a major role in Julius Caesar from the beginning. First, he convinces Brutus
to join his conspiracy to kill Caesar. He helps plan the stabbing of Caesar and the take over of Rome. After Caesar
was dead, he suggested that Antony not speak at Caesar's funeral, but much to his dismay, Brutus let Antony speak, and Antony
turned the commoners against them. Cassius and Brutus fled, and formed an army to fight the enemies that were gained
after Antony's speech. As Antony's troops approached, Cassius suggested that their troops stay at their base, but Brutus
demanded they march to Philippi and meet Antony's troops. As usual, Cassius let Brutus have his way, and it resulted
in the takeover of their troops. Cassius sent his friend Titinius to find out if the oncomming soldiers were friends
or enimies. When Cassius saw Titinius surrounded by soldiers, he thought the worst, and had a prisoner stab him.
The news was good, the soldiers were not enemies, but Cassius killed himself before he knew for sure. Because Cassius
killed himself, Brutus also requseted his servants to stab him, giving victory to Antony.
