Great win president Lincoln! We sure did show those slave owners what we are made of!
Thanks Grant! All though we won, I still have a lot of questions, like why did the Confederate States secede from us?
Well that's because they wanted to preserve their right to own slaves. Since there economy and way of life revolved around slave labor, if they lost the right to do this, there economy would fail. Federal Government also weren't keeping up with their obligations making states want to secede even more!
The White House
Well we, the Union, had massive advantages! We had a bigger army, more resources and supplies, more railroads that could transport stuff fast across the nation, a Industrial economy which supplied us with weapons, ammo, and more supplies, more natural resources, we control the shipping avenues allowing us to trade fast, and we have better economics in general then the South, but I have a feeling you already knew that!
Well then what were both side's advantages compared to each other?
The South didn't have many strengths in the war but the one great advantage they had was that they were playing defense for their territory. Us, the Union, had to invade and conquer their land and since they knew their land very well, it was much easier to defend off and kill!
Hey Abe! You wan't to go to the theatre next week! I heard its really good!
So that's exactly why we won the war! We had everything better in almost every way. With our superior industrial capabilities, more equipment, people, and supplies and the final straw with General Sherman's total war that showed the South no mercy led us, the Union, to our Victory. We were fighting for our lives and freedom. They were fighting for their soil.
Amazing Grant! You would be a great president one day!
