Because they both had powerful navies that could have relieved the blockade.
The Confederacy lost at Glorieta Pass and had to walk back to Texas.

Lincoln reversed FrÃ©mont's order for the following political reason:
1 - when the order was given, the Kentucky was about to decide if secede and join the Confederacy or side with the Union.
2 - The order would have resented the Unionists of important areas of eastern Tennessee and west Virginia.
3 - The order would have contradicted Lincoln's claim stating that the war was being fought to preserve and restore the Union and not to free the slaves.
Novanet- He feared retaliation from the border states, which supported slavery
Robert E. lee led his Army of Northern Virginia into Maryland for several reasons:1. He wanted to forestall any Union assault on Richmond. By moving north he would force the Army of the Potomac to abandon any plans for invading Virginia; and
2. Lee also believed that he would have the opportunity to crush the Army of the Potomac and destroy it in detail; and
3. By doing this, the Union would be in chaos and the chances for a peace settlement was possible.
To attempt to resolve the dispute between the North and South regarding slavery, Congress convened on December 3, 1849. The result of this convention was the Compromise of 1850.
The Compromise of 1850 allowed the New Mexico and Utah territories to choose, in the future, to become slave states. The South avoided adopting the Wilmot Proviso. A stronger Fugitive Slave Act was passed by Congress.
He called for additional troops.
Port Hudson, Mississippi
They made a brave attack, but it was unsuccessful. The attack was actually made by their whole brigade, so three other regiments also took part. Some of the Union troops, including men of the 54th Massachusetts, actually fought their way inside the Fort for a brief time, but were then forced back out with heavy losses.
Union troops never succeeded in capturing Battery (or Fort) Wagner. Eventually its Rebels garrison was outflanked as Union artillery and troop positions bypassed the Battery and threatened to cut it off. So one dark night the Rebel troops blew up their own Fort and escaped to Charleston.

The south generally didn't make as much supplies and arms as the north because the north had the industrial revolution which allowed things to be made faster and cheaper instead of having to have each handmade by a gunsmith. Also, the south around that time were busy growing and selling cotton on large plantations.
At the beginning of the US Civil War, the South's two main strategies were to protect the entire Confederacy from Union attacks. In 1862, Confederate President Jefferson Davis, announced that this strategy was not effective and the South did not have enough troops to carry on in that manner. He then explained that the new strategy would be to defend specific and vital parts of the South, thereby using their troop strength more effectively. As another component of this was to take advantage of any opportunities to invade Northern states and thus bring pressure on the North who were insulated from the war's destruction.

Because the South had no manufacturing industry, so it needed foreign imports. But it also had no Navy to combat the Union blockade.
He insisted that his only goal was to save the union, not end slavery
That was Robert E. Lee.
Like many senior Virginians, he opposed secession.
Whether he opposed slavery is more doubtful. He had had to take two years' leave to sort out his father-in-law's estate, which included many slaves. The old man had unwisely told them that they would be freed on his death. But they could not be freed until the disposal of the estate had been completed, and they became very rebellious.
Lee decided to make an example of the ringleaders, and his treatment of them was quite brutal, though not abnormal by the standards of the time.
His beliefs about slavery seem to be equivocal, and he has been claimed as a figurehead by both sides of the debate.

A set of Lee's orders, which had been dropped in the field by a careless Confederate officer.
These orders revealed that Lee's divisions were widely separated, and that McClellan could destroy them, one by one.
Unfortunately for McClellan, there was a Confederate spy in his camp, who was able to alert Lee of what had happened, and Lee was able to concentrate his troops. Still, McClellan's position was favourable, and if he'd moved fast enough, he could still have destroyed Lee's army.
Instead, Lee was able to escape back to Virginia - for which McClellan was finally removed from command.

His colleagues said that this would make it look like a desperate gesture - trying to assert a moral war-mission to take people's minds off defeat. He ought to wait for a Unon victory, in order to carry conviction.
In addition and of great importance was that they did not want Lincoln's emancipation to cause problems in the "Border States" where slavery existed and were not included in the final emancipation issued on January 1, 1863.
Lincoln wanted enough troops to remain near Washington DC to defend it from Confederate attack.
McClellan had taken almost all of the Army of the Potomac into Virginia, and as shown later in the war, a determined Southern attack could force a large contingent to hurriedly return to Washington to protect the capital. The capital cities of Richmond and Washington are only about 100 miles apart.
