Product Description
This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War, the Second Battle of Ft. Ticonderoga. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The 1777 Second Battle of Ticonderoga occurred between July 2 – 6, 1777 at Fort Ticonderoga, near the southern end of Lake Champlain in the state of NY.In military maneuvers that more closely resembled troop movements with minor skirmishes than actual battle, General John Burgoyne's 8,000-man army occupied high ground above the fort, and nearly surrounded the defenses.

These movements precipitated the occupying Continental Army, an under-strength force of 3,000 under the command of General Arthur St. Clair, to withdraw from Ticonderoga and the surrounding defenses. Some gunfire was exchanged, and there were some casualties, but there was no formal siege and no pitched battle.

The uncontested surrender of Ticonderoga caused an uproar in the American public and in its military circles, as Ticonderoga was widely believed to be virtually impregnable, and a vital point of defense.
General St. Clair and his superior, General Philip Schuyler, were vilified by Congress. Both were eventually exonerated in courts martial, but their careers were adversely affected.

The presentation covers the following:
