Many of you are working very hard on your project.  Make sure that for EACH quote that you place the quote IN CONTEXT.  That means you must describe the audience and WHY Antony used these words (the before of the before, during and after).  Use this as a sentence starter:

 

When Antony uttered (spoke, made, announced, etc.) these words, the audience was *** becasue ****.
