PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is 68 page powerpoint! This is one you will want to spend the week on! If you are looking for the events leading up to the Civil War please see my store for that powerpoint. This powerpoint does not describe the differences between the North and South like that one does. This powerpoint is meant to give a scope of the war including generals, battles, places, and results.

I know that unless you are a history buff, which most 5th graders aren't, (from my experience) teaching the battles of the Civil War can be very tedious. I have tried to lay out this powerpoint in the most practical way. It's in a "When, where, what" format as I list the events of the Civil War. There is SO much information out there on the Civil War so my goal here was to be as thorough as possible but not completely overwhelming. Here is what I have included:

Frederick Douglas
What Soldiers ate and wore and age and motivation for going to war
Union's Anaconda Plan
Ulysses S Grant
Jefferson Davis
Robert E. Lee
Stonewall Jackson
George B. McClellan
General Meade
General William Sherman
Fort Sumter
First battle of Bull Run
Second Battle of Bull Run
Capture of Fort Donelson and Fort Henry
Battle of Shiloh
Battle of Antietam
Battle of Fredericksburg
Battle of Chancellorsville
Battle of Gettysburg
Battle of Chattanooga
Battle of Franklin
Battle of Nashville
War in the West
Sherman's march through Atlanta to Savannah
Emancipation Proclamation
General Order No. 143
13th amendment
Gettysburg Address
Surrender at Appomattox
John Wilkes Booth
Ford's Theater
Reconstruction
Clara Barton
Result of the War/ Casualties

** Please review my preview file to see if this is what you are looking for. If it is, this should be a HUGE time saver!!!! :)

There are embedded questions and pictures of maps along the way to help students follow along and for you to asses their understanding.

NOTE: I am attaching the fonts that I used to create this powerpoint. If you would like your powerpoint to look as mine appears, please download these fonts. Otherwise, feel free to edit to your liking.
