This is a 26 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Morgan's Raid. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Morgan's Raid was a highly publicized incursion by Confederate cavalry into the Northern states of IN, KY, WVA and OH, from June 11–July 26,1863 and is named for the commander of the Confederates, Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan.
For 46 days as they rode over 1,000 miles covering a region from TN to northern OH. The raid coincided with the Vicksburg Campaign and the Gettysburg Campaign, although it was not directly related to either campaign.
The raid did, served to draw the attention of tens of thousands of Federal troops away from their normal duties and strike fear in the civilian population of several Northern states. Repeatedly thwarted in his attempts to return to the South by hastily positioned Union forces and state militia, Morgan eventually surrendered what was left of his command in northeastern OH.
To many Southerners, the daring expedition behind enemy lines became known as The Great Raid of 1863, and was initially hailed in the newspapers. Along with Gettysburg and Vicksburg, it was another in a string of defeats for the Confederate army that summer. Some Northern newspapers derisively labeled Morgan's expedition as The Calico Raid, in reference to the raiders' propensity for procuring personal goods from local stores and houses.
