This time of year, many US History classes begin their look at the US Civil War. Below are links to Google Slides presentations I use when I am exploring these concepts with students. The presentations are thin on text and fairly light on detail as I prefer to use them as conversation prompts, rather than as information delivery tools.
Anyhow, please take a look and I hope they help in provoking interesting classroom discussions!
The Civil War – How it All Begins
The Civil War – Comparing the Two Sides
The Civil War – The Actual Fighting
The Civil War – The Reconstruction Era
