Power point presentation #1 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - The Massacre at Wounded Knee – 1890 and contains 14 slides.

Wounded Knee, located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota, was the site of 2 conflicts between North American Indians and representatives of the U.S. government. The 1890, massacre left some 150 Native Americans dead, in what was the final clash between federal troops and the Sioux Indians.

In 1973, members of the American Indian Movement occupied Wounded Knee for 71 days to protest conditions on the reservation.

Power point presentation #2 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - The Donner Party Expedition – 1846 and contains 33 slides.

In the spring of 1846, a group of nearly 90 emigrants left Springfield, IL, and headed west on the 2,500-mile journey to CA, in what would become one of the greatest tragedies in the history of westward migration. Led by brothers Jacob & George Donner, the group attempted to take a new and supposedly shorter route to California.

James Reed, originator of the group, had recently read the book The Emigrants’ Guide to Oregon and California, by Landsford Hastings, who advertised a new shortcut across the Great Basin that would save the pioneers 350-400 miles on easy terrain. What Reed did not know was that the Hastings Route had never been tested. It was this falsified information that would lead to the doom of the Donner Party.

In the end, there was no shortcut. The party left too late in the year to make it over the mountains and became snowbound. Running out of food and to keep from starving, many in the group resorted to cannibalism.

In the Donner Party tragedy, two-thirds of the men in the party perished, while two-thirds of the women and children lived. 41 individuals died, and 46 survived. In the end, 5 had died before reaching the mountains, 35 perished either at the mountain camps or trying to cross the mountains, and 1 died just after reaching the valley. Many of those who survived lost toes to frostbite.

Power point presentation #3 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - Branch Davidian Disaster in Waco – 1993 and contains 13 slides.

The Waco disaster began as a siege of a property belonging to the religious group the Branch Davidians by American federal, Texas state law enforcement officers and the US military between February 28 and April 19, 1993.

The Branch Davidian cult, was led by David Koresh and lived at the Mount Carmel Center near Waco, TX. The group was suspected of weapons violations and a search and arrest warrant was obtained by the ATF. The group refused the governments demand to vacate the property which created a 51 day standoff between the two.

In the end, government agents attacked the compound and it caught fire & burned to the ground. While 9 people escaped the blaze, 75 perished either by gunshot or by fire inside the compound. 25 of the dead were children, including 12 children younger than 5 years of age.

Power point presentation #4 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - The Oklahoma City Bombing – 1995 and contains 14 slides.

At 9:02 a.m. on April 19, 1995, a 5,000-pound bomb, hidden inside a Ryder truck, exploded just outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The explosion caused massive damage to the building and killed 168 people, 19 of whom were children.

Those responsible for what became known as the Oklahoma City Bombing were home-grown terrorists, Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols. This deadly bombing was the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil until the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attack.

90 minutes after the explosion, McVeigh was pulled over by a highway patrol officer for driving without a license plate but when the officer discovered that McVeigh had an unregistered gun, he arrested him on a firearms charge. Before McVeigh was released, his ties to the explosion were discovered. Unfortunately for McVeigh, almost all his purchases and rental agreements related to the bombing could be traced back to him after the explosion.

On June 11, 2001, McVeigh was executed and Nichols received a jail sentence.

Power point presentation #5 is titled, Disasters & Events That Shaped America - Columbine High School Shooting – 1999 and contains 14 slides.

On April 20, 1999, 2 teens went on a shooting spree at Columbine High School in Littleton, CO, killing 13 people and wounding more than 20 others before turning their guns on themselves and committing suicide. The crime was the worst high school shooting in U.S. history and prompted a national debate on gun control and school safety, as well as a major investigation to determine what motivated the gunmen, Eric Harris, 18, and Dylan Klebold, 17.

In the aftermath of the shootings, many schools across America enacted “zero tolerance” rules regarding disruptive behavior and threats of violence from students. Columbine High School reopened in the fall of 1999, but the massacre left a scar on the Littleton community.

"Unfortunately, there will be more school shootings, and I will be there to help," principal DeAngelis says. "Maybe, just maybe, hearing my words might just prevent another one."
