The Keeping of the Bridge

Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay

In it, Macaulay describes the heroism of Horatius Cocles and of two comrades, Herminius and Spurius Lartius. They volunteer to buy time for the city of Rome by denying access to a bridge over the Tiber to an invading army by standing guard on the far side, keeping the enemy off the bridge. The bridge is the invading army's only way to reach Rome.
