This is a 27 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Key Leaders - Confederate - Joseph Wheeler. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Joseph Wheeler first gained the notice of his superiors as a Confederate lieutenant colonel at the Battle of Shiloh in April 1862. After fighting all day, he led his men, who were out of ammunition, in a bayonet attack against Union artillerymen defending Pittsburg Landing.
The next day, when the army was forced to retreat, Wheeler's regiment was chosen to serve as rear guard. His grit and determination, which had much to do with the safe escape of the Southern army, earned him a promotion to full colonel.
"Fightin" Joe Wheeler was then just 25 years old — so young that he called himself ”The War Child.”
