CIVIL WAR2Civil WarCivil War was one of the bloodiest wars in the American history that sacrificed tremendousamount of people from 1861 to 1865. It was also known as the War Between the States due to thefact that the war was based on the conflicts between the Confederacy and the Union. Both theConfederacy and the Union enjoyed advantages from themselves and encountered obstacles inthe major events during the war. (History, N.D.) Before the war, one of the biggest advantages of the Union was that they had a much largerpopulation than the South, which is about 22 million, and 3.5 million of them were slaves. In thiscase, the larger population means the larger possibility to win the war. For the industry, the Northalso had more factories production than South, which the North had 92.6% and the South hadonly 7.4%. The reason lied on nature sources in their lands. The resources in the North weremostly iron and coal. However, for the South, they had many sources of gold and silver, whichcannot produce equipments for a war. This led to the production of the equipments that wererequired to use during the war decreased. The North factories produced much more than theSouth; 98% of the United States firearms and 96% of the United States rail equipment wereproduced by the North. Thus, in this case, the Union had more advantages than Confederacy.
