This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Battle of Harpers Ferry. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Once Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States, states in the South began to secede from the Union and events quickly escalated into full scale Civil War. The American Civil War was the bloodiest periods in the United States with casualties well above 600,000 people. No one anticipated how devastating the war would be and how long it would last. In the end, the Union was preserved and the slaves were set free.....but at a tremendous cost in lives ruined.
This presentation covers the Battle of Harpers Ferry as part of the Peninsula Campaign. It represents one of the largest surrenders of American Military forces ever. It is also one of the hard fought battles of the American Civil War.
