This is a 15 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the American Civil War - Key Leaders - Confederate - Alexander Stevens. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.
Alexander Stephens was an American politician born near Crawfordville, GA, on February 11, 1812. Stephens is most known as the Confederate vice president during the American Civil War. After the war, Stephens was imprisoned. Upon his release, he worked as a U.S. congressman. He died on March 4, 1883, in Atlanta, GA.
He was instrumental in supporting the Compromise of 1850 regarding the status of territories obtained during the Mexican-American War. The Compromise passed, thus defusing a 4-year conflict between Southern and Northern states. Stephens's self-proclaimed biggest political victory was the passing of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854,
After devastating Confederate losses at Gettysburg and Vicksburg in 1863, Stephens was assigned the task to negotiate a prisoner exchange but President Abraham Lincoln and his staff refused to compromise. In February 1865, Jefferson Davis appointed him to represent the Southern delegation to negotiate the end of the Civil War with President Lincoln and Secretary of State William Seward. The meeting proved to be fruitless, with discussions coming to a standstill, and Stephens left with no progress made.
