What strategies did the union use throughout the war?
Answer Attrition. In the end, the North could simply go on fighting longer than the South could: they had more men; more industry; and more supllies.
There were a number of Union operations and strategies employed by the Union to end the Confederate rebellion. Some were more effective than others. For example the blocka…ding many Southern ports was not that effective due to the inability to catch privateer ships under the cover of darkness and the South's use of torpedoes to sink Union ships. The Union made repeated attempts to defeat Robert E Lee's Army of North Virginia In the western theater taking control of the Mississippi River and blocking supply routes. The Union destroyed much of the Souths infrastructure in rail roads and farming land. Union strategies revolved around the idea of placing pressure on various parts of the South at the same time. These coordinated efforts and naval-army expeditions were also part of Union operations.
the union won the civil war !
It was the stampede or the air raid
The Union had several main strategies: 1. Push hard to take the Confederate capital at Richmond, Virginia. 2. Blockade trade from the southern ports. Cut off a…ll exports of cotton and tobacco and imports of war goods. 3. Take control of the Mississippi River. 4. Use the Mississippi River as a supply line for an invasion of the deep south. 5. Keep Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri in the Union. After 3 years of war, they had accomplished goals #2 - 5. They had made almost no progress toward Richmond. However, the invasion of the deep south (Sherman's March to the Sea) was proving more successful than hoped for, giving the possibility of encircling the leading southern cities. An additional pair of strategies: 6. Field larger and better equipped armies. Wear the South down with superior forces. 7. Use immigration to fill draft quotas and keep manpower flowing into the army. The Union strategy, devised by Winfield Scott, became known as the Anaconda Plan. It called for the blockade of all Southern seaports, and the capture of the river ports on the Mississippi River to slowly choke off the South's ability to reinforce and resupply its armies in the field. After 1863, Grant and Sherman modified the strategy to include Total War, the devastation of agricultural, transportation, and industrial centers within the South, to hasten the crippling effect of the Anaconda Plan.
Abraham su cked balls
1) gain control of the Missippi River 2)Take the capital: Richmond, Virginia 3) Blockade the passage of trading goods,supplies, and arms from the confede…racy.
The Anaconda Plan.. They wanted to surround the South so they could squeeze them
TO blockade southern ports
A strategy that is now called Total War. Grant saw that his only hope was to end the system of prisoner-exchange, and simply let the Confederates run out of manpower. This cau…sed appalling suffering in the overcrowded prison-camps. He also supervised a massive attack on the infrastructure of the South, burning farms and wrecking railroads to help starve the Confederate armies in the field. This also caused terrible suffering by Southern civilians, but these were living in states that had quit the USA in a arrogant spirit, and now they were paying the price.
The Anaconda Plan, which was to separate the Confederate troops from the Mississippi westward and on the east. It was to cripple the economy of the south, and make sure there …was no way for the Confederate troops to fight back. The plan went more or less successfully with the capture of the Mississippi in the Siege of Vicksburg by Ulysses S. Grant
No, Scott devised the Anaconda Plan: a blockade and starve strategy.
Grant and Sherman conducted campaigns of Total War in which they destroyed the enemy's ability to make war by eliminating railways and bridges, factories, and the crops needed… to supply or send supplies to enemy troops.
While Union soldiers attacked Vicksburg from the Mississippi (west side of the town) with cannon bombardment, General Grant went downstream a few miles, out of sight of anyone… in the town. Then he crossed the river, and went around the dense woods in the south and then attacked and surrounded Vicksburg from the east. He laid a siege to Vicksburg. He fired cannons in the town on a daily basis and final on July 4,1863; the town surrendered.
well the unions plan was know as the anaconda plan. the idea was to "constrict" the south by their three way plan
