This is a 21 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Spotsylvania Court House, or simply the Battle of Spotsylvania, was the second major battle in Lt. General Ulysses S. Grant's, Overland Campaign.Following the bloody but inconclusive Battle of the Wilderness, Grant's army disengaged from Lee's army and moved to the southeast, attempting to lure Lee into battle under more favorable conditions.
Elements of Lee's army beat the Union army to the critical crossroads of Spotsylvania Court House and began entrenching. Fighting occurred on and off from May 8 through May 21, as Grant tried various schemes to break the Confederate line.
In the end, the battle was tactically inconclusive, but with almost 32,000 casualties on both sides, it was the costliest battle of the campaign.
