This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on Famous Americans – Carrie A Nation. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Carrie Nation, known for her saloon smashing in the early 20th century, was born in Garrard County, KY. Her family was uneducated but ran a successful plantation in KY. Her father wrote her name as “Carry” in the family Bible. She usually used the variation Carrie but in her years as an activist and in the public eye, used Carry A Nation as both a name and a slogan. Carrie was the eldest of 4 girls and 2 boys.
January 1911, Carrie collapsed on stage when speaking back in AR. As she lost consciousness she said, using the epitaph she had asked for in her autobiography, "I have done what I could." She was sent to Evergreen Hospital at Leavenworth, KS, dying there on June 2. The women of the WCTU had a headstone made, inscribed with the words, "Faithful to the Cause of Prohibition, She Hath Done What She Could" and the name Carrie A Nation.
Carrie Nation -- or Carry A Nation as she preferred to be called in her career as a joint-smasher -- had become more an object of ridicule than an effective campaigner for temperance or prohibition. The image of her in her severe uniform, carrying a hatchet, was used to belittle both the cause of temperance and the cause of women's rights.
