This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Battle of Atlanta. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Atlanta was a battle of the Atlanta Campaign fought on July 22, southeast of Atlanta, GA. Continuing their summer campaign to seize the important rail and supply center of Atlanta, Union forces commanded by William T. Sherman overwhelmed and defeated Confederate forces defending the city under John B. Hood.
Despite the implication of finality in its name, the battle occurred midway through the campaign, and the city did not fall until September 2, after a Union siege and various attempts to seize railroads and supply lines leading to Atlanta.
After taking the city, Sherman's troops headed toward Milledgeville, the state capital, and on to Savannah with the March to the Sea.
