This is a colorful, animated power point presentation that is really 5 presentations in one and contains 153 slides. It covers in a timeline format, how slavery began with a small ship with 20 slaves to become a major problem that eventually developed into the Civil War in the United States. The presentation is "editable" so you can add your personal touches.
The presentation contains five distinct periods so it can be used as either one presentation or as five individual presentations. Each section includes its own Table of Contents so you can see what subjects are covered in each presentation. I have highlighted various events in each era that contributed to the issues of slavery and how all concerned tried to cope with the issue.
The individual eras include the following:
1607-1775; The Colonial Period through the Pre-Revolutionary War - 20 slides
1776-1787: The American Revolution and The Confederation Era - 13 slides
1788-1811: The Early Period Under the United States Constitution - 20 slides
1812-1849: Following the War of 1812 through the Pre-Civil War Era - 46 slides
1850-1860: Events and Compromises of 1850 through the 1860 Election - 4 slides
Each of the above can be purchased separately as well and can be found under the heading ....Slavery in the United States.
