Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War – Key Figures – Peggy Shippen. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

Peggy Shippen Arnold was born in Philadelphia in 1760. During the American Revolution, she and her husband, Benedict Arnold, became traitors to the American colonists, sharing with the British confidential information about military strategy. Peggy was long thought to be innocent of any wrongdoing—just another victim of her husband’s deceit—but historians have become convinced that she not only committed treason with Benedict but quite possibly helped initiate the plan.

Soon after her husband’s defection, Peggy went to live with her family in Philadelphia, but was soon banned from the city. In 1780, she joined Benedict in NY, where she gave birth to their 2nd child on August 28, 1781. In December 1781, they left for London.

Peggy devoted herself to her children—4 sons and 1 daughter—scrambling to ensure their financial well-being before she died of cancer on August 24, 1804. She was 44 years old.

The presentation covers the following:
