The Civil War Pp

  1. 1. The Civil WarBy: John Durante, EDU 29011:00-12:15<br />
  2. 2. Causes…<br />President Lincoln wanted to stop the spread of slavery<br />With the end of slavery, the south would suffer severe economic blows.<br />The South feared racial equality.<br />Southern states argued that free blacks and white men could not live together in peace.<br />Corwin Amendment was introduced to stop the abolishment of slavery in the states that it already existed in.<br />
  3. 3. Secession of the South.<br />Seven states left the Union before Lincoln took office.<br />These states took over what property fell within their boundaries with little opposition.<br />As Southerners resigned their seats in the Senate and the House.<br />On February 4th 1861, these seven states formally removed themselves from the Union to start a new government. <br />
  4. 4. The Union and Confederacy.<br />Twenty-three states remained loyal to the Union.<br />Seven Deep South cotton states seceded by February 1861.<br />These seven states formed the Confederate States of America (February 4, 1861), with Jefferson Davis as president, and a governmental structure closely modeled on the U.S. Constitution.<br />
  5. 5. The War.<br />On March 4, 1861, Abraham Lincoln was sworn in as President.<br />Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina, Fort Pickens and Fort Taylor were the remaining Union-held forts in the Confederacy, and Lincoln was determined to hold Fort Sumter.<br />The battle for this fort was short and very bloody.<br />Lincoln called for 75,000 volunteers for 90 days.<br />The war was thought to be short and quick, so the promise of swift victory was given to the volunteers.<br />
  6. 6. AnacondaPlan<br />
  7. 7. Anaconda Plan and blockade<br />Winfield Scott, the commanding general of the U.S. Army, devised the Anaconda Planto win the war with as little bloodshed as possible.<br />The idea was to capture the Mississippi river and split the south in half.<br />In May 1861, Lincoln enacted the Union blockade of all Southern ports, ending regular international shipments to the Confederacy.<br />
  8. 8. Key Events and Battles<br />
  9. 9. Bull Run (Manassas), 1st battle<br />July 21, 1861<br />Gen. McDowell leads 30,000 men against Gen. Johnston&apos;s 22,000 Southern troops in an attempt to crush the rebels and go &quot;On to Richmond.&quot; South is vicarious as Union troops flee back to Washington. McDowell replaced by Gen. McClellan.<br />
  10. 10. Emancipation Proclamation<br />September 23, 1862<br />Lincoln announces that on 1/1/63, all slaves in the rebelling states would be free. Does not affect border states. This forces European nations that taking a side is a must.<br />
  11. 11. Battle of Gettysburg<br />July 1863.<br />Over 165,000 soldiers participate in the largest battle in the Western Hemisphere.<br />Approximately 50,000 total casualties for both sides.<br />
  12. 12. General Lee surrenders<br />April 9, 1865<br />Lee did not want to see his troops suffer anymore, so he surrenders. He is given generous terms to do so.<br />
  13. 13. African American Memorial<br />This is located in Washington D.C<br />
  14. 14. War Memorial<br />Civil War memorial and graves, Cynthiana, Kentucky <br />
  15. 15. Denver City Park Civil War Memorial Sundial<br />
