The Union Railroads
One Advantage of the North during the civil war was the population that they had. If they had more people in their nation then it could lead to popular growth in the army and supporting war efforts.
Due to large population in the North the factories in the nation could work twice as fast. Then the army could gain much supplies during the war. Some supplies the army gain was clothing, boots, and large amounts of ammunition
The nation's railroads were a huge advantage in the North during the Civil War since it covered up 72% of their land. It allowed them to make trades with other states around the nation which could give them more than enough supplies for the War.
