Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the presidency of Warren G Harding and a summary of issues which led up to his election. Both presentations together number 34 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

Warren Gamaliel Harding was the 29th President of the United States, serving from March 4, 1921 until his death. Harding died one of the most popular presidents in history, but the subsequent exposure of scandals that took place under him, such as Teapot Dome, eroded his popular regard, as did revelations of an affair by Nan Britton, one of his mistresses.

An OH native and Republican, Harding was a successful newspaper publisher who served in the OH legislature and the U.S. Senate. In 1920, he won the general election in a landslide, promising a “return to normalcy” after the hardships of World War I. As president, he favored pro-business policies and limited immigration. In historical rankings of the U.S. presidents, Harding has been rated among the worst.

End of Presentation

After a generation of progressive insurgency within the Republican party, it returned in 1920 to a conservative stance. The party’s choice for president was Senator Warren G. Harding of OH, a political insider. Governor Calvin Coolidge of MA, best known for his tough handling of the Boston police strike of 1919, was the vice-presidential nominee. The Democratic party nominated James M. Cox, governor of OH, and Franklin D. Roosevelt of NY, assistant secretary of the navy in the Wilson administration.

Democratic chances were weakened by President Woodrow Wilson’s having suffered a stroke in 1919. The Socialist party nominated Eugene V. Debs, imprisoned for his opposition to World War I, and Seymour Stedman of OH.

Harding won easily by carrying 404 electoral votes, 37 states and 60.3% of the popular vote.
