At the start of the American Civil War, the population of the North has been estimated to have been approximately 22 or 23 million persons in total. While these numbers are not impressive by contemporary standards, what is important is that the North's population was more than double that of the South (estimated at around 9 million), which gave the North a significant advantage in the conflict.

The population of the United States at the beginning of the US Civil War was around thirty million; twenty-one million in the north, nine million in the south. Of the nine million in the south about three million were slaves, and there were almost another half million free blacks, leaving around five and one-half million white southerners.
