Countdown to Civil War
PowerPoints with presenter notes, looks at the sectionalism and the antebellum period - years leading up to the American Civil War. PowerPoint also includes a printable timeline and key. This is an excellent resource to add to your antebellum/causes of the civil war unit. The PowerPoint contains 20 edible slides that covers the causes of the Civil War through a yearly countdown, beginning at 10 years before the War. Starts at 1851 with Uncle Tom's Cabin and ends with the attack on Fort Sumter. I have used this with A.P., Honors and regular classes. PowerPoint contains lecture notes that helps you to tell the whole story, to stop question students on graphs, maps and primary source docs.
