Why did the south lose the civil war?

food shortages and riots had been spreading across the south

while the north was growing with big industries

The north had overwhelming superiority in manpower and

manufacturing capacity. The south was able to utilize their

superior generalship and knowledge of local terrain to prolong the

war as long as it did. Even without Grant's tenacity in command,

the north would probably have won eventually, given enough time,

due to the factors mentioned previously. The Anaconda Plan strategy

remained essentially unchanged since Scott devised it in the first

days of the war.
