to unite Europe, thus making it safer, and to improve the economies of the EU countries. if they are all part of one union, they'll have an interest in each other and then not… attack each other. They all try to use the euro, eliminating the problem of exchange rate, and by removing terrifs, it helps the products of one country sell in another.
There were two main goals of the union army. The first goal was to preserve the union, and the second goal was to abolish slavery.

The primary goal of the Union Army in the west was to control the Mississippi River. This would separate Texas and Arkansas from the remainder of the Confederacy, deny this tr…ade and supply route to the South while opening it for Union resupply. North of Saint Louis, the river was quickly in Union hands. New Orleans also fell early in the war. The last major point of resistance was Vicksburg, Mississippi, which was placed under siege and finally fell on July 3, 1863, the same day that Lee began to retreat from Gettysburg. The Union Army had additional goals in the West: Keep Kentucky in the Union, support the pro-Union forces in Missouri and keep that state in the Union, and place pressure on Tennessee in order to force the Confederacy to divert substantial forces away from the Army of Northern Virginia. All of these goals were met by 1863.
Creating a buffer zone between the Soviet Union and Western Europewas their main goal.

The main goals of the Western part of the United States and the western part of the Confederacy revolved around the "west" meaning most of the territory east of the Miss…issippi River to the western edge of the Appalachians. See below the information about why the West is defined in this manner. The West is defined this way because Union general Albert Sidney Johnston was stationed in California when the war began. He resigned his Union commission and along with other "new" Confederates, rode through dangerous territory, avoiding unfriendly Apaches and Union troops to arrive finally in Virginia. It should be noted that the Civil War began in April 1861 and Johnston and his men did not arrive to Richmond until September, 1861. A few notes on General Johnston is important at this time. Albert Sidney Johnston served well in the Mexican War; Albert Sidney Johnston had been promoted to Union Brigadier General and served in California at the beginning of the Civil War; and Johnston was a West Point friend of Confederate President Jefferson Davis. A few days after Johnston's arrival in Richmond, Jefferson Davis appointed him to the second highest command, that being in charge of all Confederate troops west of the Appalachian Mountains to the Mississippi River. Therefore in this discussion, the "West" is identified by the above military responsibility for the South. The Union strategy in the West revolved around securing the Neutral slave State of Kentucky and taking control of the Confederate State of Tennessee. This strategy began taking shape late in December of 1861. The idea was a sound one, and would change from time to time over the next few years, as the war developed. Upon the fall of Tennessee, the Union planned to control all of the Mississippi River, sever railroad connections from the West to the East, and capture the armory, supply depot and railroads leading from the Confederate stronghold of Vicksburg Mississippi. Once this was accomplished, Union forces in the West could move eastward and attempt to control as much territory as it could in the "heartland" of the South. As with many of the good ideas of the Union's strategies for ending the Southern "Rebellion", Union missteps caused delays. Combine that problem with the South's resistance to the Union's western goals and the war was protracted longer than anyone thought it would be. Initially the Union forces in this theater numbered approximately 90,000 troops. This was almost double that of the South's 50,000 troops. The main Union problem was not in troop strength, but instead was within the North's miss communications. The major Union players in the initial part of the campaign with regard to Kentucky and Tennessee were: A. President Lincoln who interfered with the plan by subverting the chain of command between top Union General, McClellan and his generals; B. Constant bickering between the lower level generals. This consisted of generals Grant, Halleck, Buell & Sherman; C. The ideas of the six above-mentioned individuals combined; and D. Southern resistance.
The main goal of the Union in the capture of Atlanta was to disable its railway network, cut off supplies going to Confederate general Johnston's army, and occupy a major Conf…ederate city. By doing so and occupying Atlanta for over a month, Sherman dealt a psychological blow to the South. The fall of Atlanta, led the way for Sherman to battle on to the port city Savannah, Georgia.
