This is a 64 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - The Atlanta Campaign. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Atlanta Campaign was one of the most successful Union campaigns of the Civil War. Union General Sherman had several battles with Confederate Generals Johnston and Hood.
Sherman was victorious, and Hood established a reputation as the most recklessly aggressive general in the Confederate Army. Casualties for the campaign were roughly equal in absolute numbers, but this represented a much higher Confederate proportional loss. Hood's army left the area with approximately 30,000 men, whereas Sherman retained 81,000.
Sherman's victory was qualified because it did not fulfill the original mission of the campaign; destroy the Army of Tennessee, and Sherman has been criticized for allowing his opponent to escape.
