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.
They used a strategy called total war. That is when you completely destroy everything. You destroy factories, stores, homes, and you really destroy everything in your path.
There were a number of Union operations and strategies employed bythe Union to end the Confederate rebellion. Some were moreeffective than others. For example the blockading m…any Southernports was not that effective due to the inability to catchprivateer ships under the cover of darkness and the South's use oftorpedoes to sink Union ships. The Union made repeated attempts todefeat Robert E Lee's Army of North Virginia In the western theatertaking control of the Mississippi River and blocking supply routes.The Union destroyed much of the Souths infrastructure in rail roadsand farming land. Union strategies revolved around the idea of placing pressure onvarious parts of the South at the same time. These coordinatedefforts and naval-army expeditions were also part of Unionoperations.

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 all exports ofco…tton 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 ofthe deep south. 5. Keep Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri in the Union. After 3 years of war, they had accomplished goals #2 - 5. They hadmade almost no progress toward Richmond. However, the invasion ofthe deep south (Sherman's March to the Sea) was proving moresuccessful than hoped for, giving the possibility of encircling theleading southern cities. An additional pair of strategies: 6. Field larger and better equipped armies. Wear the South downwith superior forces. 7. Use immigration to fill draft quotas and keep manpower flowinginto the army. The Union strategy, devised by Winfield Scott, became known as theAnaconda Plan. It called for the blockade of all Southern seaports,and the capture of the river ports on the Mississippi River toslowly choke off the South's ability to reinforce and resupply itsarmies in the field. After 1863, Grant and Sherman modified thestrategy to include Total War, the devastation of agricultural,transportation, and industrial centers within the South, to hastenthe crippling effect of the Anaconda Plan.

The Anaconda Plan.. They wanted to surround the South so they could squeeze them
TO blockade southern ports
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
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.
The Union used a strategy known as the Anaconda Plan, devised by General Winfield Scott in the early days of the war. His plan was to use the industrial might of the North to …slowly strangulate the South. The Navy would blockade the Southern seaports, preventing them from selling cotton to buy supplies. This bought time for the North to raise and train an army, and give the South time to reverse its decision, when it saw how hopelessly outclassed it was in men and materiel. Once the army was raised, it would secure the river ports along the Mississippi Valley preventing the Confederate States in the West from effectively communicating with those in the East. With a few tweaks, and the addition of the Doctrine of Total War after 1863, and the further division of the Eastern Confederate States by Sherman's March to the Sea, this is the strategy that won the war for the Union.
The Union strategy, formulated by General Winfield Scott, became known as the Anaconda Plan. It consisted of blockading the southern seaports and capturing the Mississippi Riv…er towns to cut off trade and restrict troops and supplies. Later, this was supplemented by the doctrine of Total War which included the destruction of all supplies, transportation, communication, and manufacturing capacity.
