This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Battle of Fredericksburg. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Fredericksburg, fought December 11-15, 1862, was unlike other battles of the Civil War. It was one of the largest and deadliest of the Civil War, it featured the first major opposed river crossing in American military history. Since the fighting took place in the city of Fredericksburg, it was the Civil War’s first urban combat, with nearly 200,000 combatants, no other Civil War battle featured a larger concentration of soldiers, and it is remembered as one of the most one-sided battles of the Civil War.
The presentation covers the following:
Burnsides Battle Plan
“Stonewall” Jackson Resists
Burnside’s “Diversion” Force
Union Leadership (2)
Confederate Leadership (2)
Map of the Battle
Casualties & Aftermath
