This is a 23 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Colonial America - America’s First Rebellion. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as you need to.

Jamestown Colony was the site of the first open rebellion in Colonial America in 1676 and occurred 100 years prior to the American Revolution. Nathaniel Bacon, a young and capable attorney challenged the unfair policies of the Governor of Jamestown, Sir William Berkeley.

Berkeley, was a cruel and selfish man who ruled the colony entirely for his own interests. He kept his subjects in deep poverty with unjust taxes and operated a profitable and illegal fur trade with the Native Americans. The Governor’s Council, was composed of his friends, and thus the people had no recourse but to follow his edicts.

During the same year local Indian tribes began to attack the settlers along the frontier where their fields were laid waste, their servants killed, and their stock driven off and slaughtered. Compounding the problem, was King Philip’s War in New England, and reports of the horrible massacres were continually reaching Virginia as many of the people along the frontier were put to death. The Governor did nothing to protect them, not wanting to lose his profitable fur trade.

Finally, they had enough and selected a reluctant Nathaniel Bacon to resist the Governor. Through a series of events, the colonists were gaining the upper hand until Bacon suddenly and expectantly died, leaving a void in leadership that Berkley exploited and regained control. Berkeley’s deeds were brought to the attention of King Charles II who replaced Berkeley with new governors willing to serve the people appropriately.
