Spartacus and the Slave Revolt Chris Hagin
Early Life of Spartacus Born in Thrace Trained in Roman army as an auxiliary
Enslaved Spartacus became a slave in 73 BC in the service of Lentulus Batiates. His master taught at a ludus in Capua, where gladiators were trained.
Later in the same year, Spartacus and two Gallic warriors led a rebellion at the school
Spartacus and 80 other gladiators successfully escaped the training school using kitchen appliances
When the band of escaped gladiators encountered Roman soldiers, they attacked the soldiers and easily overcame their defenses, taking the soldiers’ superior weapons
On the way towards the Alps, Spartacus et al picked up 70,000+ slaves. Most wanted to pillage the countryside – not fight the Roman legionnaires The Senate did nothing at first
Once the Senate agreed Spartacus was a threat, General Crassus was sent to exterminate Spartacus’s slave army (at this point it was wandering south and east of Rome)
At Brundisium, Crassus’s army killed 60,000 slave-soldiers and crucified 6,000 more along the road leading back to Rome – Spartacus was never found
