This is a 36 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - The Franklin-Nashville Campaign. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Franklin–Nashville Campaign, also known as Hood's Tennessee Campaign, was a series of battles in the Western Theater, conducted from September 18 to December 27, 1864, in Alabama, Tennessee, and northwestern Georgia. The Confederate Army of Tennessee under Lt. Gen. John Bell Hood drove north from Atlanta, threatening Major General William T. Sherman's lines of communications and central Tennessee.
After a brief attempt to pursue Hood, Sherman returned to Atlanta and began his March to the Sea, leaving Union forces under Major General George H. Thomas to deal with Hood's threat. Hood ordered a hasty retreat south along the Granny White and Franklin Pikes. Only a skillful rearguard action allowed the army to escape from the battlefield.
Thomas’s strategic pursuit over the next two weeks failed to trap the Confederates, but the damage had been done. In four months of campaigning, the Army of Tennessee had lost nearly 75% of its fighting force. Hood resigned his commission in January and his remaining men were sent to join General Joseph E. Johnston in North Carolina.
The Union victory at Nashville effectively ended the war in Tennessee.
The presentation covers the Battles of Springhill, Franklin, Nashville and other skirmishes until Sherman set out for Atlanta.
