This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Sullivan's Island Campaign. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
With the Siege of Boston ongoing in late 1775, the British began seeking other opportunities to strike a blow against the rebelling colonies. Believing the American South to be friendlier territory with a large number of Loyalists who would fight for the crown, plans moved forward for Major General Henry Clinton to embark forces and sail for Cape Fear.
Arriving, he was to meet a force of Scottish Loyalists raised in NC as well as troops coming from Ireland under Commodore Peter Parker and General Lord Charles Cornwallis. In the Battle of Sullivan's Island, British forces sustained 220 killed and wounded. With their efforts repulsed at both ends of the island, the British halted their attack late in the day. Unable to free Actaeon, British forces returned the next day and burned the stricken frigate. Moultrie's losses in the fighting were 12 killed and 25 wounded.
This colonial victory became the model for future triumphs.. It was here, that a gallant and spirited band defeated in desperate conflict, an overwhelming naval and military force. Having utterly whipped them, drove them from their shores.
