Product Description
This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Battle of Fort Washington. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Having defeated the British at the Siege of Boston in March 1776, General George Washington moved his army south to NYC. Laying out defenses for the city in conjunction with Brigadier General Nathanael Greene and Colonel Henry Knox, he selected a site on northern Manhattan for a fort.

Located near the highest point on the island, work began on Fort Washington under the guidance of Colonel Rufus Putnam. Constructed of earth, the fort lacked a surrounding ditch as American forces did not have sufficient powder for blasting out the rocky soil around the site. Work continued as Washington's army was defeated at the Battle of Long Island in late August.

Three days after the fall of Fort Washington, American troops were forced to abandon Fort Lee. Retreating across NJ, the remains of Washington's army finally halted after crossing the Delaware River.
Regrouping, he attacked across the river on December 26 and defeated Rall at Trenton. This victory was followed up on January 3, 1777, when American troops won the Battle of Princeton.
