This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidents - #14 - Franklin Pierce - Summary. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Franklin Pierce was the 14th President of the United States. Pierce was a northern Democrat who saw the abolitionist movement as a fundamental threat to the unity of the nation. His polarizing actions in championing and signing the Kansas–Nebraska Act and enforcing the Fugitive Slave Act failed to stem inter-sectional conflict, setting the stage for Southern secession.
After resigning in 1842, Pierce joined the temperance movement and worked as an attorney, before going off to fight under General Winfield Scott in the Mexican-American War.
