    The background of the case. The events that made possible the accusation of the younger Roscius of Ameria began long before the murder of the elder Sextus Roscius of Ameria. Beginning in 97 BCE, Rome began to see the rise of Lucius Cornelius Sulla.A man known for his brutality and cunning, Sulla was feared by many around him.   In doing so, the book succeeds at portraying Aldridge admirably. The text is divided into two sections. The first reproduces nineteenth-century documents regarding Aldridge, most significantly "Memoir and Theatrical Career of Ira Aldridge, the African Roscius" (ca. ), an exaggerated but still informative account of the actor's life.

    Roscius (d. 62 bc), a phenomenally successful comic actor, he later became identified with all that was considered best in acting.

In , the English poet Charles Churchill (–64) published the satirical poem The Rosciad, describing the attempt. Gaius Fabius takes a legion to the Morini, Quintus Cicero takes one to the Nervii, Lucius Roscius takes one to the Esubii, and Titus Labienus takes another to the Remi. Three more, under Marcus Crassus, Lucius Munatius Plancus and Gaius Trebonius are sent among the Belgae.
