As the new president I will do all in my power to end the Civil war with the Union leaving in victory!
Let's create a plan against the south that could benefit us greatly.
That's a great idea, I actually might have something in mind.
The Anaconda Plan worked amazingly, gla it all worked out as planned.
The leader of the Union or the north, was Abraham Lincoln who became the 16th president. Lincoln was a Republican, which wanted the freedom of enslaved. Abraham Lincoln served as president until the day of his assassination in 1865, assassinated by John W. Booth.
Of course! We have to help out as much as we can so we can defeat the opponent.
Are you going to enlist in helping with the Civil War?
The military leaders were Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman, George Meade, and George B. McClellan. William T Sherman was an American Civil War General he is known for his "Sherman's march" where he and his troops laid waste to the south. Ulysses had been entrusted with command of all U.S armies in 1864 and he had also been elected twice as president.
We definitely have a chance of beating the Confederate Army with the things we have.
The military strategy they used was the Anaconda Plan which was a blockade that would prevent the South from trading with the world. In this plan they concluded they would "choke and suffocate" the South.
How shall we enter an unknown area? If anyone has ideas, please speak up.
The north had many advantages such as having a large population. In the north with their big population they had upper hand in being able to recruit plenty of men to fight alongside them during the War. With this they did not have to worry about not having enough people to go against the South.
The north had plenty of resources, more than the south did. They had more minerals, more factories, more miles of railroad tracks, and more ships than the south. All these advantages really helped the north against the Confederate army.
They had a disadvantage in entering a land that they had very little knowledge of.
