This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the American Revolutionary War – Spying & Sniping. The total number of slides is 62. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.
Power Point #1 is entitled the American Revolutionary War - The Culper Spy Ring and contains 45 slides and covers the following:
The Culper Spy Ring operated in and around New York City during the American Revolutionary War. Washington needed "eyes and ears" on the British who were headquartered in New York. They designed and operated an extensive network of intelligence gathering that was so successful they impacted the war on several counts without getting caught.
The Culper Ring is the inspiration for the television drama "Turn".

Power Point #2 is entitled the American Revolutionary War - Snipers & Assassins and contains 17 slides and covers the following:
The “sniper” is an American creation conceived during the American Revolutionary War to help even the playing field with the British. The Americans gained two valuable pieces of information regarding British officers in the fields of battle that they were able to turn to their advantage:
1. The officers always kept battle plans and other important documents on their person while in battle.
2. These officers did not share these plans with subordinate officers.
The Americans rightly concluded that by assassinating the officers, it would compromise the chain of command and create mayhem in their ranks, not to mention the psychological impact on the foot soldiers.
The Americans adopted “sniping” as a battle tactic and employed it effectively against the British., although the term “sniper” had yet to emerge. Prior to the American Revolutionary War, battles were fought “old style,” performed in close ranks in a large field facing the enemy. It was the backwoods skill of the frontiersmen who made possible the “stalk and hide” strategy of fighting and changed the way the Americans fought the war.
It was Daniel Morgan and Timothy Murphy who defined how effective sniping could be by eliminating many key British officers and by doing so, changed the course of the war in the process.
