This is a 80 slide presentation over the Civil War, causes, important leaders, and effects, it finishes at Lincoln's assassination.
I use this is a preview activity to the Civil War to get students to question how our country could split apart and do this to each other.
Includes slides of wounded, slavery, leaders, amputations, POW's and other important information.
I do a KWL before I show this slideshow.
I don't talk while doing the slideshow, I use the adagio for strings music from the movie Platoon to invoke more emotion.
