This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Sherman's March to the Sea. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Sherman's March to the Sea is the name commonly given to the military Savannah Campaign, conducted through Georgia from November 15 to December 21, by Major General William T. Sherman of the Union Army. The campaign began with Sherman's troops leaving the captured city of Atlanta, GA, on November 15 and ended with the capture of the port of Savannah on December 21.
His forces destroyed military targets as well as industry, infrastructure, and civilian property and disrupted the South's economy and its transportation networks. Sherman's bold move of operating deep within enemy territory and without supply lines is considered to be revolutionary in the annals of war.
“Sherman's March to the Sea,” effectively eliminated the region's economic usefulness to the Confederate cause. With the city secured, Sherman telegraphed President Abraham Lincoln with the message, “I beg to present you as a Christmas gift the City of Savannah, with one hundred and fifty guns and plenty of ammunition, also about twenty-five thousand bales of cotton.”
