This is a 27 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Jackson's Valley Campaign of 1862. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
On November 4, Jackson accepted command of the Valley District, with his headquarters at Winchester. His military actions in the Shenandoah Valley in 1862 were known as Jackson's Valley campaign.
Jackson, recently a professor at Virginia Military Institute and a hero at First Manassas, was familiar with the valley terrain, having lived there for many years. Against insurmountable odds, Jackson was quite successful.
With the success of his Valley Campaign, Stonewall Jackson became the most celebrated soldier in the Confederacy until his reputation was eventually eclipsed by Lee‘s. In a classic military campaign of surprise and maneuver, he pressed his army to travel 646 miles in 48 days of marching and won five significant victories with a force of about 17,000 against a combined force of over 50,000.
Jackson had accomplished his difficult mission, causing Washington to withhold over 40,000 troops from McClellan's offensive.
The presentation covers the following:
Battle of Kernstown (March 23, 1862)
Retreating from the Valley (March 24 – May 7)
Battle of McDowell (May 8)
