Product Description
This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The American Revolutionary War. All of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

In the wake of the Battles of Lexington & Concord on April 19, 1775, American colonial forces closed in on the city of Boston. Initially guided by Brigadier General William Heath of the MA militia, he passed command to General Artemas Ward late on the 20th.As the American army was effectively a collection of militias, Ward's control was nominal, but he succeeded in establishing a loose siege line running from Chelsea around the city to Roxbury.

On the night of March 4/5, American troops moved guns to Dorchester Heights from which they could strike the city and the British ships in the harbor. On March 8, Washington received word that the British intended to evacuate and would not burn the city if allowed to leave unmolested. Though he did not formally respond, Washington agreed to the terms and British began embarking along with numerous Boston Loyalists.

Howe evacuated the city by March 17th and on 26 March sailed with about 9,000 men for Halifax, N. S. Having been taken after an 11 month siege, Boston remained in American hands for the remainder of the war.
