PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 26 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on British History - The English Civil War. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The English Civil Wars stemmed from conflict between Charles I and Parliament over an Irish insurrection. The first war was settled with Oliver Cromwell’s victory for Parliamentary forces at the 1645 Battle of Naseby. The second phase ended with Charles’ defeat at the Battle of Preston and his subsequent execution in 1649.

Charles’ son, Charles II, then formed an army of English and Scottish Royalists, which prompted Cromwell to invade Scotland in 1650. The following year, Cromwell shattered the remaining Royalist forces and ended the “wars of the three kingdoms,” though Charles II eventually ascended to the throne in 1660.

The English Civil War was revolutionary in that it marked the first successful attempt in modern history of reversing the trend toward stronger, more centralized government. The parliamentary forces, the Roundheads, won the military conflict with the king and the Cavaliers. Executive prerogative was checked. The power of the purse was placed in the hands of the representatives of the people. The English Civil War opened the door toward a more representative and democratic government in the future.

Nearly 20 years after the start of the Civil Wars, Charles II finally returned to England as king, ushering in a period known as the Restoration. British history, and world history, would have been profoundly altered if Charles I had won.
