PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a bundle of 2, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Weapons & Technology Advances. Both presentations together number 45 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The Civil War was a time of great social and political upheaval but it was also a time of great technological change. Inventors and military men devised new types of weapons, such as the repeating rifle and the submarine, that forever changed the way that wars were fought.

Even more important were the technologies that did not specifically have to do with the war, like the railroad and the telegraph. Innovations like these did not just change the way people fought wars–they also changed the way people lived.

Thanks to its superior industrial strength, the North had an overwhelming over the South in all types of technology. The North could manufacture weapons due to their industrial factories and expertise while the South had to smuggle in weapons past the Union blockade. The North had superiority in the production of large and small arms, supplies of ammunition, and the ability to ship them to wherever needed the most through an extensive and standardized railroad track network.

Throughout the Civil War, as early as 1861, Confederates experimented with a variety of new technology, including the use of crude submarines. H.L. Hunley, oversaw the development of one such submarine that became his namesake, the CSS H.L. Hunley.

The “Hunley,” was a long narrow boat, powered by a hand-cranked propeller with ballast tanks at the bow and stern which were operated with hand pumps. The boat was manned by a crew of eight, with seven working the propeller crank and one steering. Access to the interior was through two water tight hatches on the submarine's small conning towers.

For armament, the Hunley was equipped with a long spar torpedo with an explosive charge. In July 1863, Hunley demonstrated his new submarine for Confederate Admiral Franklin Buchanan. During the test, Hunley successfully approached a coal barge, planted its torpedo, and withdrew before detonating the charge.
