thank you, Jim, for yet another interesting story, but: I was enraged when he killed his sister and then he even escapes punishment. Hero or not, how unfair is that ?neecheelok70 wrote: ↑October 12th, 2018, 4:01 pmHere is 40:

Nevertheless, your section is PL ok.
I vaguely knew about the Horatii and Curiatii because of this famous painting by French artist David. Maybe you know it too, it's called the Sermon of the Horatii and shows the moment when the three brothers swear the oath that they would fight:
I wonder why Tappan didn't include this painting in the book. It's very famous.
I didn't know the detailed story about the fight though, so this text was really interesting to me.
