Product Description
This is a 22 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the US Presidents - #33 - Harry S Truman. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Harry S. Truman was born in Missouri on May 8, 1884. He was Franklin Roosevelt’s vice president for just 82 days before Roosevelt died and Truman became the 33rd president. In his first months in office he dropped the atomic bomb on Japan, ending World War II. His policy of communist containment started the Cold War, and he initiated U.S. involvement in the Korean War. Truman left office in 1953 and died in 1972.

In March of 1952, Truman announced that he would not run for reelection. He gave his support to Governor Adlai Stevenson, the democratic nominee, though Stevenson was distancing himself from the president because of his poor approval rating.

After retiring from the presidency, Truman returned to Independence, MO, where he wrote his memoirs, oversaw the construction of his presidential library and took long walks. He died on December 26, 1972, and is buried next to Bess in the courtyard of the Truman Library.
