Product Description
This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War – George McClellan’s Civil War Resume & The Battle of Antietam. Both presentations together number 38 slides. Each of the slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

After Fort Sumter was fired on and President Lincoln called for 75,000 volunteers to fight in the Civil War, McClellan received an appointment from Lincoln’s War Department to command the entire Department of the OH, which soon expanded to stretch from western VA (now WVA) to MO.

McClellan participated in the following campaigns:

First Battle of Bull Run
Peninsula Campaign
Seven Days Battles
Battle of Seven Pines
Second Battle of Bull Run
Battle of Antietam
Relieved of Command November 1862

From the outset, McClellan complained to the War Department that he lacked adequate weapons and ammunition for his department but at the same time conceived grandiose schemes that included marching through KY to capture Nashville, TN. The War Department pointed out to him that his men’s 90-day enlistments would be up before he could train them, outfit them and march them to Nashville.

While highly skilled in matter demanding organization, the Young Napoleon proved overly cautious and slow-moving as a field commander and never took the initiative to fight. He accepted at face value greatly inflated estimates of Confederate strength that were provided to him by Allan Pinkerton’s detective agency, and so he always thought he was outnumbered.

During the Peninsula Campaign, had he moved rapidly, he might have captured the Confederate capital at Richmond, but his fear of his 100,000-man army being overwhelmed by the Confederate forces that he thought outnumbered him led to a snail-like advance.

The Battle of Antietam, the battered Southern army was permitted to withdraw without serious pursuit. McClellan never provided his corps commanders with a coordinated battle plan and he kept an entire corps in reserve throughout the battle, fearing a counterattack by Lee. Had those thousands of fresh troops been committed against the weakened defenders, Little Mac might well have destroyed Lee’s army then and there, shortening the war considerably.

In November, the Young Napoleon was relieved of command and sent to Trenton, NJ to await further orders that never came.

End of Presentation

Once Abraham Lincoln was elected President of the United States, states in the South began to secede from the Union and events quickly escalated into full scale Civil War. The American Civil War was the bloodiest periods in the United States with casualties well above 600,000 people. No one anticipated how devastating the war would be and how long it would last. In the end, the Union was preserved and the slaves were set free.....but at a tremendous cost in lives ruined.
