Product Description
This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Loyalists, Patriots & Fence-Sitters. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

John Adams, in his personal writings in 1815, estimated that one third favored the Revolution, one third opposed it, and one third were undecided. This estimate was widely believed for years. Historians have since concluded that Adams was referring to American attitudes toward the French Revolution, not the American Revolution.

It is now believed that about 20%of the colonists were Loyalists — those whose remained loyal to England and King George. Patriots were a small group in terms of percentage. For them there was no alternative but independence. This left a lot of Fence Sitters during the American Revolutionary War.

As, radical notions about separating from Britain are making the rounds. There are rumors of confrontation ahead raising the question, Who will you support? The radical Americans or the British? Fact is, it's not an easy decision. Not only will your way of life be drastically affected, but whomever you choose to side with will make you instant enemies.
