I'm Abraham Lincoln and I'm going to end the civil war.
So what are we going to do against the confederation?
I say we use our ships to cut all connection from the south to the world!
Wow, that Anaconda Plan is such a great idea.
Abraham Lincoln was the 16th president of the United States of America. He successfully ended the Civil War to help the nation.
Since we are citizens of the North we will enlist ourselves into the war to help.
Ulysses S. Grant was a well acclaimed Union general during the Civil War, and William T. Sherman was an American Civil War general who was also a major architect of modern warfare.
How can we invade the South without knowing their grounds?
The Anaconda Plan was suggested by Winfield Scott. The plan was to slowly "strangle" the South, economically. The army would divide and isolate various portions of Confederacy, eventually capturing the capital, Richmond.
Since the North had a large number of people living in crowded cities and rural areas, this allowed the government to enlist as many people as they can to fight in the war.
They had to try and conquer an unfamiliar land leaving them vulnerable to what surprise attacks they might get.
Since railroads were built transportation in the North was a lot faster and a lot more easier than walking miles to deliver one thing.
