Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the presidency of Warren Harding and the defining events of his presidency. Both presentations together number 32 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

The Teapot Dome scandal was a bribery incident that took place in the United States from 1921 to 1924, during the administration of President Warren G. Harding. Secretary of the Interior Albert Bacon Fall had leased Navy petroleum reserves at Teapot Dome in WY and 2 other locations in CA to private oil companies at low rates without competitive bidding.

In 1922/1923, the leases became the subject of a sensational investigation by Senator Thomas J. Walsh. Fall was later convicted of accepting bribes from the oil companies and became the first Cabinet member to go to prison. No person was ever convicted of paying a bribe.

The federal government brought suit in federal court in WY to cancel the bribery-induced leases to Teapot Dome that Fall had given to Sinclair. Wyoming’s U.S. District Judge T. Blake Kennedy ruled against the government, but the leases were finally cancelled when the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Kennedy decision.
