Military Leader: Ulysses S. Grant
Wow, General Grant sure is a great general. No wonder Lincoln likes him so much.
In every battle there comes a time when both sides consider themselves beaten, then he who continues the attack wins.
The Anaconda Plan... Like the Snake
Time to cut the Confederates from the rest of the world.
President Abraham Lincoln was born on February 12, 1809, in Kentucky. Lincoln grew from humble beginnings, such as being self-educated and rose to serve the highest power in the United States. He served as the 16th president and was a Republican who led the Union to victory during the Civil War. His leadership and his famous addresses, "The Gettysburg Address" and "The Emancipation Proclamation" are what made him memorable to the nation.
There's So Many People in the North!

Industries Boomed to Aid the Union
The Anaconda Plan was the most well-known military strategy used by the Union army. This plan was proposed by Winfield Scott who explained that this plan will "slowly choke and suffocate the South." This plan was to start a blockade to stop the South from trading with the world. This hurt the South's economy for which it thrived on cotton diplomacy, especially with Great Britain. The Union army in the meantime, divided to capture vital cities of the South.
Some Transportation to Help Them Out
The population was very important to the Union's victory over the Confederacy of the Civil War. In the North, there were about 22 million people, which was way more than the South inhabited. Since the population was so enlarged, it served as a great advantage in raising a large army. It also served in raising war efforts to help the North win.
The North's industries were very important to help with the Civil War efforts. Ninety percent of the nation's factories were located in the North and these factories made supplies to help aid the army. The factories were making clothing, boots, and weaponry. The clothes and boots were incredibly important for the men and weaponry for fighting.
So, what are we doing in the factory today?
Probably make some more boots... or something.
Transportation served a great purpose to aid the Union to victory. Seventy-two percent of the nation's railroad tracks were located in the North. Trains allowed for a much easier way to transport supplies and people all across the country. Supplies such as food, weapons, and clothing were brought by trains to armies who needed it. People who were also in dire medical emergencies were transported as well.
