Publish date:

President Abraham Lincoln had a difficult time finding the best general to lead the Army of the Potomoc during the Civil War. The slides here show the progression of generals and battles that culminated in Lincoln's choice of Ulysses S. Grant, the general whose willingness to fight echoed Lincoln's determination to bring an end to this war. Since slavery was a major issue in the Civil War, this site also gives you the opportunity to learn statistics about slavery in the United States and slave trade throughout the world up to the time of the Civil War.
