Best Answer

The importance of the rivers as military highways - especially the Mississippi, the Tennessee and the Cumberland.

The vulnerability of the railroads, of which the South had much less mileage than the North. (Sherman's wrecking of the Georgia railroads greatly shortened the war.)

During the civil war why did the south have to leave the union?

because the south was angry, the north decided to take their money. north stole the south money and south very angry, but American way. north killed south and that's where theres no racism, Abraham Lincoln. #2 Mostly because of state's rights, the south felt that the Union didn't have the right to tell them how to live and do business, slavery was one of the issues that brought the crisis to a head. When the south talked about secession the Union said they would enforce the Union claim by force. That also inflamed the south who considered that an invasion of their sovereign states.


Why did the union wear blue and the confedate gray?

During the 1st battle of Bull Run units couldn't tell Yanks from Rebs and vice versa. The U.S. had blue to start with. Gray and butternut (the actual color) dyes were plentiful in the south, thus that color.


What northern victories was the turning point in the civil war?

Many people will tell you that Gettysburg was "the turning point" for the war, because of the effect Lee's first real loss had on the South. Others will point to Antietam, since the Emancipation Proclaimation was finally released after that slight victory. Personally, I find that Grant's capture of Forts Henry and Donelson in 1862 were the turning point. With those victories Grant assured that Kentucky would stay in the Union and put the South on in the defensive in Tennessee by laying the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers opened to the North. In Ft. Donelson, the Union also captured 12,000+ Confederate troops. They would have been very useful to AS Johnston two months later at Shiloh.
