The north had more man but also had beter wepons and the ability to produce all materials needed for war witch the southn could not do.

Although the Confederates (southern army) were better fighters, the Union (northern army) outnumbered them by a lot. if you look at the losses of battles in the civil war you will find that the Union lost more men than the Confederates. But toward the end of the war, the Union became better fighters and sped up their victory. In Gettysburg they had the advantage of the high ground.Biground top and Little round top.
