This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Battle of Franklin. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Franklin was fought on November 30, at Franklin, TN as part of the Franklin–Nashville Campaign. It was one of the worst disasters of the war for the Confederate States Army.
Confederate Lt. General John Bell Hood's Army of Tennessee conducted numerous frontal assaults against fortified positions occupied by the Union forces under Major General John M. Schofield and was unable to break through or to prevent Schofield from a planned, orderly withdrawal to Nashville.
The Battle of Franklin decimated the Army of Tennessee. Around 10,000 men became casualties on both sides, roughly 7,000 thousand of them Confederates. Fourteen Southern generals became casualties, more than any other battle in the war. Even so, Hood doggedly pursued Schofield with his diminished army to fight again at the Battle of Nashville.
