Storyboard Text

  • The Confederate states got nothing on us!
  • We just finished a mass production of clothing and weaponry for our soldiers! Success is in our future!
  • Since, the North consisted of various large cities, they were in advantage. The total population at this time was approximately 22 million people which made it able for them to raise an army and have many people support the war efforts. 
  • Though my initial plan was to keep the Union intact, it is now to defeat those that support the cruel and brutal ways of slavery.
  • As the rapid growth of industrialization in the North continued to soar, the Union´s was able to benefit from it. For instance, 90% of the nation's factories were in the North and in these factories,significant items such as clothing, boots and weaponry were being quickly  produced. 
  • I am prepared to confront our biggest enemy, and of course the traitor, Robert.E Lee.
  • At this time, the north had 72% of the nation's railroad tracks, making it easier to transport guns and other items. Also, as the north was still considered the United States, it still had the National Treasury and bank reserves, so it had suffice money to raise an army and afford the costs of the war. 
  • Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States, opposed the expansion of slavery. He was a republican from Illinois, who led the Union during the Civil War.
  • With renowned generals, Ulysses S. Grant and William T.Sherman leading the Union, the north were optimistic and confident on winning war against the Confederate states.
  • Winfield Scott curated a plan to "suffocate" the south and it's economy. The plan was to form a blockade to halt southern trade with England and other countries. This would negatively affect the south, as it relied on receiving various products, such as guns and clothing for their soldiers.
