Its a Shame we must fight our old war Buddies, do you not agree Ulysses?
Indeed Sherman its a real shame.
Lincoln is the leader of the union, As the President of the United States of America. Lincoln is the 16th President and a vital leader to the war. He also posted the Emancipation Proclamation which Freed many slaves in Confederate states except Border states in fear they would join the Confederacy.
Both Ulysses S Grant and William T Sherman are the Biggest major military leaders of this war, They are the most important and influential. They Participate in the most battles and ultimately are the best for this war.
I must hurry or my message for Sherman will never make it!
The Unions Strategy is to choke the confederates, Surround and choke them and to stop their trading with blockades.
The North or The Union had Industrialized while The Confederates decided to stick to Agriculture. Because of their industrialization, they can produce bullets and guns a necessary thing for war.
The North had the majority of the Railroads and Transportation, thus they can transport troops and messages a lot faster than the Confederates.
Another Advantage The Union has is their Financial Situation. Because the North or the US has A national Currency already in place. They don't have a problem raising money for the war.
