This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Key Figures - Nathanael Greene. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Nathanael Greene was one of the most respected generals of the Revolutionary War and a talented military strategist. As commander of the Southern Department of the Continental Army, he led a brilliant campaign that ended the British occupation of the South.
Greene willingly gave much of his personal wealth to help support the war, even sacrificing his RI home.
To thank him for his service during the war, the GA government gave Greene a plantation named Mulberry Grove, outside Savannah. He lived on the Mulberry Grove estate for less than a year, troubled by insecure finances; the plantation did not become profitable.
After Greene's death, a young Yale University graduate, Eli Whitney, came to Savannah to take a tutoring job. Whitney began working for Greene's widow, Catharine, and it was at Mulberry Grove that Whitney invented the cotton gin, the machine that revolutionized the production of cotton.
