This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Battle of Germantown. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Following their victory at the Battle of Brandywine on September 11, 1777, British forces under General William Howe captured the colonial capital of Philadelphia. Unable to prevent this, General George Washington moved the 11,000-man Continental Army to a position along Perkiomen Creek approximately 30 miles northwest of the city.
Concerned about the American army, Howe left a garrison of 3,000 men in Philadelphia and moved with 9,000 to Germantown. Five miles from the city, Germantown provided the British with a position to block the approaches to the city. Alerted to Howe's movement, Washington saw an opportunity to strike a blow against the British while he had numerical superiority.
The loss ended American hopes of recapturing Philadelphia and forced Washington to fall back and regroup. In the wake of the Philadelphia Campaign, Washington and the army went into winter quarters at Valley Forge. Though beaten at Germantown, American fortunes changed later that month with the key victory at the Battle of Saratoga.
