This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Cold War - Senator Joseph McCarthy's Witch Hunt. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
On November 14, 1908, Joseph McCarthy was born into a Roman Catholic family as the 5th of 9 children in Appleton, WI. Although McCarthy dropped out of grade school at the age of 14, he returned to diligently finish his studies in 1928, permitting him to attend Marquette University. Once accepted, he began his journey to become what many historians consider to be one of the least qualified, most corrupt politicians of his time.
Edmund Walsh, a close fellow Roman Catholic and anti-communist suggested a crusade against so-called communist subversives. McCarthy enthusiastically agreed and took advantage of the nation’s wave of fanatic terror against communism. Through the televised investigations into the United States Army and the reporters’ attack, the nation grew to realize that McCarthy was “evil and unmatched in malice.” He was finally censured by the senate.
