PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Western Expansion in the United States - The Mexican-American War. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The Mexican-American War marked the first U.S. armed conflict chiefly fought on foreign soil. It pitted a politically divided and militarily unprepared Mexico against the expansionist-minded administration of U.S. President James K. Polk, who believed the United States had a “manifest destiny” to spread across the continent to the Pacific Ocean.

A border skirmish along the Rio Grande started off the fighting and was followed by a series of U.S. victories. When the dust cleared, Mexico had lost about one-third of its territory, including nearly all of present-day California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico.

The presentation covers the following:

Causes of the War
Polk Picks a Fight
