But we shouldn’t forget that the founding fathers drew much of their inspiration–particularly for the structure of American government–from the Romans. They were particularly interested in the Roman Republic, which preceded the Empire, which they inspected closely for its strengths and weaknesses.
“In setting up their own republic,” says Stephen Klugewicz, “the American Founders looked to the Roman Republic as a model for what they should be and to the Roman Empire embodied by Caesar as a portent of what they feared the republic could become.”
