USA!!!!!! Fight Union Fight
the Union's military strategy was suggested by Winfield Scott and was called "the anaconda plan". This plan was to slowly but surely "choke and suffocate" the south, economically by blocking them from trading with other parts of the world.
This being the industrialization period where the North is flourishing industry wise, they had a lot of advantages compared to the South. One if their advantages was the train tracks that were throughout the north which was good for transportation of things like weapons, food, clothes, and other necessities.
Another advantage that the Union had over the Confederates was there population. They and way more people and this helps because of the fact that the more people, the more soldiers and the more war loyalty back home.
Lastly, Industrialism was a big thing in the north and that is how they made their money. This was an advantage to them because since they made their own things, it was easy and cheap to get for the people fighting for their side.
