The Presidents

Pres. Jefferson Davis

Pres. Abraham Lincoln

type of battles fought north vs south
Type of Battles Fought: North vs. South

North fighting largely offensive war

South fighting largely defensivewar

Northern Strategies: A. Blockade the Southern Coast and B. Split the Confederacy by seizing the Mississippi River (Anaconda Plan)


North’s navy allowed it form a blockade

The North captured or destroyed ~1500 Confederate ships

South’s cotton exports decreased 95% during the war

The North could implement the Anaconda Plan and divide the South in half at the Mississippi


However, the South’s long coastline, from the Gulf of Mexico up the Atlantic, made it difficult to implement the blockade

South built many small, light, and fast “Blockade Runners”

Early in the war, up to 95% of blockade running was successful
