STANDARDS BUBBLE MAPUSE THE FOLLOWING SLIDES TO COMPLETE YOUR BUBBLE MAThe Union BlockadeThe Union Blockade - a massive effort by the Union Navy to prevent the passage of trade goods, supplies, and arms to and from the Confederacy on the Atlantic and Gulf Coast of the Confederate States of America. President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the blockade on April 19, 1861. His strategy, part of the Anaconda Plan of General Winfield Scott, required the closure of 3,500 miles of Confederate coastline and twelve major portsPort of Savannah closed off after the surrender of Fort Pulaski in April 1862.The Union BlockadeEarly in war, not enough Union ships Union pours millions into building new ships for blockade.Ships that tried to evade the blockade, known as blockade runners, were mostly newly built, high-speed ships with small cargo capacity. They were operated by the British (using Royal Navy officer on leave) and ran between Confederate-controlled ports and the neutral ports of Havana, Cuba; Nassau, Bahamas, and Bermuda, where British suppliers had set up supply bases.Those ship owners that were able to break the blockade line made a FORTUNE!Est. $200 mil. worth of merchandise and supplies made it through the blockade by end of war

The Union BlockadeAt first 5/6 attempts to slip through the blockade were successful; by 1864, only half were successful (which means the life expectancy of a blockade runner was one round trip). Confederate cotton exports were reduced 95% from 10 million bales in the three years prior to the war to just 500,000 bales during the blockade period.


The Union BlockadeBlockade causes prices of goods to dramatically increase in the South and makes certain items impossible to get. Bacon = $6.60 (2010= $116)butter = $2.00 a pound (2010 = $35)tea = $7.00 a pound (2010 = $123)Hit the hardest? Food, medicine, and weapons.

Shermans Atlanta CampaignJohnston (CSA) kept retreating and was replaced with John Bell Hood who was told to attack Sherman (USA) head on.In July, 1864, Hood attacked and lost 11,000 men in 2 days of fighting. Had to retreat into Atlanta where the Battle of Atlanta happened on July 22. Fighting in the city continues for 2 months and Hood retreats.

AndersonvilleApproximately 45,000 prisoners would enter Andersonville's gates during its 14-month existence. Nearly 13,000 died due to a lack of sanitation, overcrowding, starvation/malnutrition, and disease.Confederate Captain Henry Wirz, who was in charge of the camp, is tried for war crimes after the war and is executed. Wirz tried relentlessly to get additional food, medicine, supplies, and help to improve conditions at the camp, but Confederate govt. didnt have supplies to send.
