Product Description
This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on African-American Soldier in the American Civil War. All of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The decision to allow black men to serve in the Civil War in a combat capacity came about slowly. News from Fort Sumter set off a rush by free black men to enlist in U.S. military units. They were turned away, however, because a Federal law dating from 1792 barred Negroes from bearing arms for the U.S. Army (although they had served in the American Revolution and in the War of 1812).

By the end of the Civil War, roughly 179,000 black men (10% of the Union Army) served as soldiers in the U.S. Army and another 19,000 served in the Navy. There were nearly 80 black commissioned officers.

Nearly 40,000 black soldiers died over the course of the war, 30,000 of infection or disease.
