This 12 page PowerPoint presentation includes a timeline of events of the Civil War and key points of battles and events: firing of Fort Sumter Battle of Manassas, Battle of Gettysburg, Battle of Vicksburg, the Emancipation Proclamation, and Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox Court House.
Animations on this PowerPoint allows you to view the timeline and click on each box to learn more information. A home button is located at the bottom of each informational page to return you to the timeline to continue learning about the other events. A star located behind a picture on the Union or Confederate side (blue and grey background) animates to demonstrate who won the battles being learned about. Look for a table handout for students to take notes about the information presented on this PowerPoint coming soon.
To learn about Pickett's Charge, click on the video icon when you get to the page with Pickett's picture. The icon will direct you to a roughly three minute youtube video.
This PowerPoint was used for a small middle school class of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
