This is a 12 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Key Leaders - Confederate - Joe Johnston. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Joseph Eggleston Johnston was born in Farmville, VA in 1807. He attended and graduated from West Point in 1829 ranked 13th of 46 cadets, and was then appointed to second lieutenant in the 4th U.S. Artillery.
After several years he resigned from the Army to study civil engineering and was a topographer for a war ship in the Second Seminole War, where action there convinced him to rejoin the army. He served with honors in the Mexican-American War, the Seminole Wars, and as a quartermaster general in California in 1860.
Johnston’s weak offensive strategy and caution caused Davis to remove him from command in July of 1864.
