This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Battle of Mobile Bay. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Mobile Bay had two main channels of entry defended by three forts, the largest being Fort Morgan, a 45-gun, star-shaped fortification protecting the largest channel. To supplement these defenses, the Confederates had filled parts of the channel with torpedoes (mines), and assembled a small flotilla of one ironclad, the CSS Tennessee, and three gunboats.
The fleet was commanded by veteran seaman Admiral Franklin Buchanan, was previously the commander of the CSS Virginia on the first day of the Battle of Hampton Roads. Tasked with closing the port was Admiral David G. Farragut, who had captured New Orleans two years previous
