This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The American Revolutionary War. All of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
In the wake of Lieutenant Colonel Banastre Tarleton's defeat at the Battle of Cowpens in January 1781, Lieutenant General Lord Charles Cornwallis turned his attention to pursuing Major General Nathanael Greene's small army. Racing through NC, Greene was able to escape over the swollen Dan River before the British could bring him to battle.
Making camp, Greene was reinforced by fresh troops and militia from NC, VA, and MD. Pausing at Hillsborough, Cornwallis attempted to forage for supplies with little success before moving on to the forks of Deep River.
While a tactical victory for the British, Guilford Court House cost the British losses they could ill-afford. Low on supplies and men, Cornwallis retired to Wilmington, NC to rest and refit. Shortly thereafter, he embarked on an invasion of VA. Freed from facing Cornwallis, Greene set about liberating much of SC and GA from the British. Cornwallis' campaign in VA would end that October with his surrender following the Battle of Yorktown.
