This is a 24 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Revolutionary War - Washington Crosses the Delaware. I HAVE INCLUDED A BONUS SECTION REGARDING LEUTZE's PAINTING OF THE CROSSING.
Students will enjoy learning some of the poetic license the painter used in creating the painting. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Colonial Army was defeated and demoralized after getting beaten in New York. They were on the run and the British thought the rebellion would soon be crushed. In a daring move Washington had his army cross the Delaware river on Christmas night and deal a crushing blow to the British.
The presentation covers the following:
British Over Confidence
Decision to Cross
Map of the Crossing
Crossing the Delaware
Battle of Trenton
Types” of Soldiers in the Boat
