PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Naval Battles - Nassau. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

With the beginning of the American Revolution in April 1775, the Governor of VA, Lord Dunmore, directed that the colony's supply of arms and gunpowder be removed to Nassau, Bahamas lest it be captured by colonial forces. Despite these fortifications, General Thomas Gage, commanding British forces in Boston, warned Browne that an American attack would be possible.

In October 1775, the Second Continental Congress formed the Continental Navy and began purchasing merchant vessels and converting them for use as warships. The following month saw the creation of the Continental Marines under the guidance of Captain Samuel Nicholas.

Despite the fallout, the raid provided much-needed supplies for the Continental Army as well as gave young officers, such as John Paul Jones, experience.

The presentation covers the following:
