Product Description
This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Western Expansion – key Figures – John C Fremont. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed.

The career of John Charles Frémont, who became known as “The Great Pathfinder,” proved to be far greater before the Civil War than during the conflict. Before the war, Frémont made a name for himself leading several expeditions into the west to explore the regions and survey them for further expansion.

At the outbreak of the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln appointed Frémont a major general on May 15, 1861, and gave him command of the Department of the West. He wasn’t happy in this position and soon resigned and never got a post again.

When Mexico and the U.S. declared war in May 1846, Fremont and his men were in OR. Upon hearing the news, Fremont immediately headed south, calling his return “the first step in the conquest of California.”

When the Anglo-American population of CA learned of Fremont’s arrival, many of them began to rebel against their Mexican leaders. In June, a small band of American settlers seized Sonoma and raised a flag with a bear facing a five-pointed star—with this act, the revolutionaries declared the independent Republic of California. For this he was court martialed.

Today, Fremont’s youthful accomplishments as an explorer and mapmaker are more celebrated than his political career.
