This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on US Presidents - #21 - Chester A Arthur - Summary. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Chester Alan Arthur was an American attorney and politician who served as the 21st President of the United States; he succeeded James A. Garfield upon the latter's assassination.
At the outset, Arthur struggled to overcome a slightly negative reputation, which stemmed from his early career in politics as part of NY's Republican political machine. In 1871, an era of political machines and patronage, Arthur was named to the powerful position of customs collector for the Port of NY. He later was removed from the job by President Hayes in an attempt to reform the spoils system.
He succeeded by embracing the cause of civil service reform. His advocacy for, and subsequent enforcement of, the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act which required government jobs to be distributed based on merit, was the centerpiece of his administration.
The presentation covers the following:
Civil Service Reform
Early Years & Education
Marriage & Family
Civil Rights Cases
Election of 1880
