This power point covers the American Civil War and events leading to the war covering the time frame 1850-1865. Topics include but are not limited to: the Union and Confederacy, slavery, abolition, Kansas-Nebraska Act, Bleeding Kansas, John Brown's Raid, Dred Scott Decision, Lincoln-Douglas Debates, Bull Run, Gettysburg, Antietam, Anaconda Plan, Emancipation Proclamation, Andersonville, and total war.
There are recap questions scattered throughout the power point. In the 1850-Ft. Sumter part of the slides I have the students periodically come up with their own recap questions for the class to answer.
