Description

This is a 21 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The American Civil War: The Massacre at Fort Pillow. All of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

As the American Civil War progressed the issue of slavery came to the fore front of the war. President Lincoln eventually freed the slaves in the rebelling states with the document that became known as the Emancipation Proclamation. Many in the North called for allowing the “negro” to serve in the Union army and even arming the newly freed slaves, a thought that appalled the South.

Many African-American’s served admirably but in cases where they were captured by Confederate soldiers, were treated as runaways, severely punished or even murdered on the spot. Such was the case of the massacre at Ft. Pillow in TN.

The Fort Pillow Massacre in TN on April 12, 1864, in which more than 300 African-American soldiers were killed, was one of the most controversial events of the American Civil War. Though most of the Union garrison surrendered, and thus should have been taken as prisoners of war, the soldiers were killed. The Confederate refusal to treat these troops as traditional prisoners of war infuriated the North, and led to the Union’s refusal to participate in prisoner exchanges.

The Ft. Pillow Massacre has been long forgotten by most. Despite the ferocity of the attack, Fort Pillow was of little significance to the Confederate Army, and Nathan Bedford Forrest's troops abandoned it within hours of the massacre. The Fort Pillow site is now a Tennessee state park.
