This is a 47 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - the Appomattox Campaign. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Appomattox Campaign was a series of battles fought March 29 – April 9, 1865 in VA that ended with the surrender of Confederate General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia to the Union Armies of the Potomac, the James and the Shenandoah, under the overall command of Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant.
Grant's army pursued the fleeing Confederates relentlessly, fighting a series of battles with Confederate units, cutting off or destroying Confederate supplies and blocking their path to the south. Hoping to unite his army with the Confederate army commanded by Joe Johnston in NC, Lee still continued to move his battered and diminishing army west in an effort to escape the Union Army pursuit.
Cornered, outnumbered, and short of supplies, Lee surrendered his army to Grant on April 9, 1865 at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.
