Wars are fought by soldiers, and this costs money. This why economics is discussed when dealing with the US Civil War. In many situations, a nation with a strong economy may have a better chance of achieving victory. It should be noted that "better chance" is part of the answer. Clearly armies requires arms, ammunition and food supplies. A nation with an economy that can deliver these things gives its armed forces the fuel needed to fight a war. The South had a disadvantage by not having an economy that could easily supply its armies with war supplies.

The statement that correctly explains economic conditions in the South during the Civil War was that they were very poor and relied heavily on agriculture. This greatly contrasted the North which was more industry oriented.

The social and economic battles fought during the civil war began with the Souths dependence on slave labor. Their economy depended on the good picked and farmed by the slave. The end of slavery threatened that way of life.
