Lead students through the major events of the American Civil War with this slideshow with over 100 slides containing information about 28 events (battles, turning points, etc.) and a variety of images - most of which are real photographs taken during the war.
Events include: Secession, Lincoln's Inauguration, Attack on Ft. Sumter, First Battle of Bull Run, Monitor vs. Merrimack, Battle of Shiloh, Second Battle of Bull Run, Battle of Antietam, Emancipation Proclamation, Battle of Gettysburg, Gettysburg Address, Lincoln's Reelection, Total War, Surrender at Appomattox, Lincoln's Assassination, and the 13th Amendment (among others).
Also included is a timeline handout/graphic organizer (in Word and pdf formats) for students to make notations about each event as you progress. It is currently formatted to fit into an interactive notebook (two pages) and could be easily changed to fit your needs.
*I used a font called "Stamp Act" for the titles; it can be downloaded for free from www.dafont.com.
