The Campaigns in Gaul. The campaigns of Caesar in Gaul lasted through eight seasons (B. C. 58-51.), and are told in eight books, — the last written by Hirtius, an officer of Caesar, — each book containing the operations of a single year. The following is a brief outline: Book I. B. C. 58. Caesar checks the attempt of the Helvetians to settle in Western Gaul, and, after a bloody defeat, forces the remnant to return to their own territory. He then engages with a powerful
brave and high-spirited chief of Southern Gaul, effects a confederacy of the whole country, which is at length subdued. Vercingetorix surrenders himself to secure the quiet of the country, and is taken in chains to Rome, where he was afterwards put to death
at Caesar's triumph.
Book VIII. B. C. 51. Slight insurrections breaking out here and there are easily subdued; and by the capture of the last native stronghold, Uxellodunum, the subjugation of Gaul is made complete.
