This is a power point for Chapter 6, Sections 1-4 in the Prentice Hall America History of Our Nation Beginnings Through 1877. It is aligned with the notes I give students (taken from the chapter and also available.) For those not using the Prentice Hall book, it covers the following topics: The Declaration of Independence, the writings of Thomas Paine, The Virginia Resolution, The American Revolution (Battle of New York, Trenton, Saratoga, etc.) European and African American assistance in the war, and the surrender at Yorktown.
