The primary advantage for the South in its 1862 offensive into Maryland was the demoralized state of many of the Northern troops in the opposing army, as well as the inexperience of the new recruits who had just been called up in order to make good on recent Union losses. Additionally, the outstanding leadership of General Robert E. Lee remained a key Southern strength.
