This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Wilson-Kautz Raid. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
The Wilson–Kautz Raid was a cavalry operation in south central VA late June 1864. Occurring early in the Richmond-Petersburg Campaign, the raid was conducted by Union cavalry under Brigadier Generals James H. Wilson and August Kautz, who were ordered to cut railroads between Lynchburg, VA, and the vital Confederate rail supply center at Petersburg.
While the raid had the intended effect of disrupting Confederate rail communications for several weeks, the raiding force lost much of its artillery, all of its supply train, and almost a third of the original force, mostly to Confederate capture.
The presentation cover the following
Richmond & Danville Railroad
Battle of Staunton River Bridge
Battle of Sappony Church
First Battle of Reams Station (2)
