Product Description
This PowerPoint examines the final events on America's road to revolution. It begins with a brief examination of the "battles" of Lexington and Concord. It then focuses on the actions of the Second Continental Congress including their appointing of George Washington to head the Continental Army and their crafting of the Olive Branch Petition. Additionally, it examines the argument made by historian Bernard Bailyn in his "Ideological Origins of the American Revolution." It concludes with Thomas Paine's "Common Sense." This presentation is used in an AP United States history class and is based on the first part of Chapter 8 of The American Pageant, 14th Edition. It can easily be used as a set up to having students read the Declaration of Independence.
