  • Population Advantage
  • WE LOVE AMERICA!
  • The North had about 90% of the nation's industries before the South broke away from the United States. Since the North had more industries than the South, the Union army would be able to gain more supplies from industries. Some supplies that industries gave to the Union army include clothing, boots, and weaponry.
  • The North had about 72% of the nation's railroad tracks before the South broke away from the United States. Since the North had more railroad tracks than the South, the Union army would be able to have their supplies delivered to them faster. There is a vast amount of railroad tracks so that they cannot easily be disrupted.
  • The North had a larger population than the South throughout the Civil War. The North can raise a larger army than the South due to the population growth. More people in the North support the Union army's war effort during the Civil War.
