Scenes from the rank and file: Happy Birthday, Rome

April 21, 753 BC and we are still having a party.  Welcome to the rank and file-- legions, emperors, entertainers and barbarians as they marched through the city to celebrate the Natale di Roma (founding of Rome).  For a whole other look at the festivities, please check out my photo-based story on Huffington Post and visit my #bbclocalite features on Rome for BBC Travel.  And if you want to hang with a legion, check out Gruppo Storico Romano.
