One advantage was their superior industrial capacity, but the North also had a much larger population with which to replenish their losses.
Grant and Sherman
In three words: Northern military incompetence. The Union had a few good generals, Grant most notably, but most of the Union generals were outclassed by the Confederate generals. The North held every advantage in this war except for a surplus of competent generals.
One key advantage the North lacked was the number of generals who could serve a "general in chief " of the entire Union military. Lincoln had to appoint, then relieve far too many generals whom he appointed to take on that responsibility with success. Finally, Lincoln appointed General Grant to handle that assignment and Grant succeeded where the former generals failed.
the south was robert genral lee and the north was elmo

The North had a superior population, and their army was much bigger than that of the South. Also, the North had lots of manufacturing capability, as the economy in the North was industrialized. The South had much more capable Generals than the North, and since most of the civil war was fought in the South, they knew the land better. The South couldn't make enough food and supplies for their army.
Lee for the South and Grant for the North were the most famous.
An advantage the North did not have is a "home-court advantage" which would allow for shorter supply and troop lines.
The south had the mental advantage, they were fighting for something and the north was just fighting against something. The north on the other hand had the materialistic advantage, they had factories, most of the population so they had a bigger army, basically the south had the most cotton and that was it.AnswerThe north had the larger population so that played a huge role.
