Product Description
This is a bundle of two, highly animated, power point presentation on the events lead up to the first shots of the America Civil War. There are a total of 48 slides in the presentations, all of which are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The United States presidential election of 1860 served as the immediate impetus for the outbreak of the American Civil War. The United States had been divided during the 1850s on questions surrounding the expansion of slavery and the rights of slave owners. In the face of a divided opposition, the Republican Party, dominant in the North, secured a majority of the electoral votes, putting Abraham Lincoln in the White House with almost no support from the South.

Power point presentation #1, the presidential Election of 1860 contains 20 slides and covers the following:

Lincoln's election as President provoked the first round of State secession's as leaders of the deep south states were unwilling to trust Lincoln not to move against slavery. Initially, only the seven states in the deep south states; Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas seceded.

After the fall of Fort Sumter, President Lincoln's call for volunteers to suppress the rebellion on April 15, 1861, pushed the four other states; Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas also to secede. These states completed the formation of the Confederate States of America.
