The first scene in Act I takes place on the streets of Rome. We are to assume that it is the same day that Julius Caesar’s forces are marching to the capitol because the citizens are on “holiday” to see him make is procession through the streets. This was odd because he had not come from a war and usually a procession of this magnitude was reserved for a conquering general. It speaks further to the fact that Julius Caesar was pretty “high on his horse” as the play begins.
