Military Organization Jessica Levin

  1. 1. Military Organization By- Jessica Levin
  2. 2. How does it work <ul><li>At first the Romans used phalanx as there formation in battle. </li></ul><ul><li>In later years the Romans took a census and divided into 5 classes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The higher you class the more heavily armed you were in the military. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The army officials were picked from higher standing people in the Roman society. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. How it works cont. <ul><li>Later they got rid of the phalanx and tired new battle techniques. </li></ul><ul><li>It was made up of 3 lines. And people held swords and spears. </li></ul><ul><li>After this there army became stronger and on the onset of the 2nd Punic war they were the strongest army in the Mediterranean. They had 32,000 men and 1,600 Calvary.Also they had lots of allies in Italy. </li></ul>
  4. 4. How it works cont <ul><li>Next they created more legions and had three different types of heavy infantry units. </li></ul><ul><li>After the civil war against Marc Antony Rome reduced it’s legions by half to only 25 because of political reasons. </li></ul><ul><li>After these wars ended he went back to 50 legions and auxiliaries were become huge and almost the same size as a legion. </li></ul><ul><li>Now legions were standardized and each was lead by a legatus. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>He would lead for around 3 years. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. System of officers <ul><li>Senior officers- Dux in charge of 2 or more military units . Legatus legionis- legion commander.Other senior officers. Tribunus laticlavius , Praefectus castrorum, Tribuni angusticlavii, and Primus pilus. </li></ul><ul><li>Midlevel officers-Primus Pilus, Pilus Prior, Centurious, Aquilifer, Optio, Tessarius, Signifer, Imaginifer, and cornicen whitch the las tone was the horn blower. </li></ul>
  6. 6. The lowest officers <ul><li>Legionarii, Immunes, Discentes, Milites Gregarii, and Tirons who where the basic incoming recruits. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Connection <ul><li>This connects to our world today because our military is run similarly to theirs. We are use a hierarchy in the military world just as the Romans did. We have higher officers and lower officers just like our military. Also they separated the military into army and navy just as we do in our military. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Connection <ul><li>From the pictures you can see that our armies even use similar formations So we must have learned a lot of tactic's from from Rome. In my opinion our army was modeled off of ancient Rome. </li></ul>
