This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Surrender at Appomattox. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Civil War was the bloodiest chapter in United States history. No one could have foreseen the level of destruction and carnage brought about by the war. The unprecedented violence of and bloodshed shocked citizens and international observers alike.
The war decimated the country especially in the south. Roughly 2% of the population, an estimated 620,000 men, lost their lives in the line of duty. The human cost of the Civil War was beyond anybody's expectations with bloodshed of a magnitude that has not been equaled since by any other American conflict.
Mercifully it ended with the Appomattox Campaign as General Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Courthouse on April 9, 1965. His surrender was soon followed by the remaining armies over the following months.
The presentation covers the following:
Lee Contacts Grant
