This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Battle of Third Winchester. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Battle of Opequon, more commonly known as the Third Battle of Winchester, was fought in Winchester, VA, on September 19, during the Valley Campaigns of 1864. As Confederate Lt. General Jubal Early raided the B&O Railroad at Martinsburg, WV, Union Major General Philip Sheridan advanced toward Opequon Creek.
The Union advance was delayed long enough for Early to concentrate his forces to meet the main assault, which continued for several hours.
Casualties were very heavy. Because of its size, intensity, serious casualties among the general officers on both sides, and its result, many historians consider this the most important conflict of the Shenandoah Valley.
The presentation covers the following:
