Union munitions, food, clothing and medicine plus viable railroads dwarfed those same resources and the logistics of the South The South ,arguably (but not too arguably)had better Generals and officers than the North did. Many were West Point graduates such as General Robert E. Lee. The Southern soldiers too,with some exceptions, were better fighters than those of the North. Most were from rural backgrounds and had used firearms all of their lives, riden horses & mules and knew how to live off the land and in the woods while many Northern troops from urban areas had opposite backgrounds. The huge advantages that the North had over the South were factories that produced guns, ammunition, uniforms, food & supplies and medicine. They also had more railroads, both in number of railroad companies and miles of track, to get those resources & troops to where the greatest need was. When General William Tecumsah Sherman made his foray into the South and his infamous "march to the sea", one of the main objectives that he had was to totally destroy Southern railroad tracks (using "Sherman Bow Ties" among other methods) food supplies and buildings that could be used to manufacture anything at all which Southern troops could use to fight or Southerners in general could use to feed even themselves. It was a "scorched Earth" tactic which had been used before,and would be used again. It was used very effectively to cripple an Army and the people for whom they fought. Sherman had lived in Louisiana prior to the war (he was the first president of the school that would later become LSU) and actually liked the South and its population. He is still hated by many Georgian descendants of Confederate veterans and citizens who were raised hearing horrible tales of an very cruel man. In actuality, he was not so cruel as he was militarily wise. The North's much larger pool of soldiers who were better supplied, fed and cared for than the limited number of Southern troops with(out)their severely limited resources doomed the South to defeat even after their early routs of Northern troops at Bull Run(aka 1st & 2nd Manassas) and other battles.
The North had more soldgiers, factories, and railroads.
I think you're looking for "unions"
His novel, Hard Times, is Dickens's polemic on unions and factories, as well as government-standardized education.
They felt that unions were illegal efforts to intimidate owners and were criminal conspiracies. Courts agreed.
the government supported business efforts to limit the power of unions
They wanted better working conditions.
where are angles around the bronx?
At the grass roots level it would be unions which can join together for strength.
The working conditions found in many factories.

They formed labour unions.
labor unions provided protection from the negros. and made sure they were never exposed to the sun. also they made sure the workers had a daily meal of cow pie.
labor unions shared some of the goals of social reform movements by seeking to improve life for poor workers

Aroused fierce opposition from business people and gaurdians of law
''In the late 1800 s, workers organized unions to solve their problems. Their problems were low wages and unsafe working conditions. The workers formed local unions in single factories. These unions used strikes to try to force employers to increase wages or make working conditions safer.''
Before 1860, most factories and mills were owned and operated by individual partnerships. They had small labor unions and kept all of their business dealings local.
The poor working conditions in many of the early factories gave rise to the industrial revolution. Stride made there fueled the push for labor unions.
By striking and protesting even when such actions violated the law
In England, worker's efforts to form unions was not well taken by the government. At first, English courts found unions to be illegal. The Combination laws decreed that workers who joined unions could be imprisoned. Because of mass disregard of these laws, Parliament in 1824 granted workers the right to form and join unions, however, they were not allowed to strike.
People who ran the companies hired scabs which were replacements for the unioning strikers to show they are interchangeable and decrease morale
Labor was cheaper and easier to control partly because Right to Work laws made unions weak.
Poor working conditions in many of the early factories gave rise to the early industrial revolution. This in turn gave way to labor unions and labor law reform.
It was the southerners (confederate's) capital. Weapons, strong army, people.
