This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Battle of The Cedars. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of the Cedars was actually a series of relatively small skirmishes during the Canada invasion. The Cedars were located about 30 miles away from Montreal—close enough to the shore of the St. Lawrence River to give a strategic advantage to anyone crossing the river into or out of Montreal.
General Arnold gathered the forces in Quebec and traveled back to engage the enemy. Forster, head of the British force in Montreal, heard that Arnold's force would be enormous. He retreated and Arnold gave chase. Arnold sent in a group of Indians who had sided with the Americans, demanding that Forster release all his prisoners, and threatening to destroy the nearby Indian villages if any of the prisoners were harmed.
Arnold blamed Colonel Bedel and Lieutenant Butterfield for the Patriots' loss at the Battle of the Cedars and sent them to court-martial. Both were convicted.
