Julius Caesar - Animated Version, Part 3

WARNING:  THIS CLIP CONTAINS AN ANIMATED VERSION OF DEATHS BY STABBING FROM SHAKESPEARE'S FAMOUS PLAY, JULIUS CAESAR.  VIEWING MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN.

Feeling regretful, for what he has done, Brutus sees what he perceives is an "evil spirit."  The ghost - which looks like his murdered friend, Julius Caesar - tells Brutus they will meet again at Philippi (where a battle is about to begin).

Losing the battle against Octavius and Mark Antony, Cassius (one of Caesar's murderers) takes his own life with the sword he had drawn against the Dictator.

Brutus, too, kills himself.  But he (unlike all the other conspirators) is honored in death because he did to Caesar what he thought was best for Rome.  Of him, Mark Antony says:  "This was a man."
