I am President of the United States of America and leader of the Union
I am Ulysses S. Grant
I am William Tecumseh Sherman
We're surrounding the Confederate States!!!
The leader of the Union was Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was one of the most influential figures of American history and was the ultimate reason for the abolition of slavery.
The resources in this train will be sent to the soldiers in no time!
The two military leaders for the Union were Ulysses S. Grant and William Sherman. They were two very successful and prestigious military leaders that really helped out the Union cause.
I don't even know soldier
The Union devised the anaconda plan in which they would surround the Confederate states with ships and forces and constrict on into them. Also, the Union set to destroy the South's economy by setting up blocades.
The Union had extensive lines of railroad track, and a lot more than the South. Thus the industrialization factor goods were transported to the soldiers so much faster and more efficiently than ever. The soldiers would have their much needed goods in no time and could also travel from place to place much faster than the Confederates.
A big disadvantage to the Union was that they were fighting on foreign ground. Since the Confederates chose to take a defensive approach the Union had to push onto enemy lines and into a foreign area. The battles were much harder for the Union since they didn't know the lay of the land and strategies or anywhere to go.
I'm so confused sir, where are we?
The Union's economy was built off of industry and production. While the Confederates had only agriculture on their side. The Union was making guns, uniforms, ammo, e.t.c. to help with the war effort and this really gave the Union an advantage in artillery and economically.
