The South had very good leaders, but had a smaller population and therefore a smaller army. The South was also a mess under the leadership of Jefferson Davis, who could barely keep the Confederacy together. The CSA were just an alliance and so things were rarely enforced. The transportation was not good in the South, so getting things from place to place was hard.
