Cleburn,

Thanks for adding to my comment!

Had "total war" (or however one cares to term it, "a rose by any other name is still a rose") not been inflicted upon the South, perhaps the hunger of the civilians would not have been as large an issue. After all, prior to 1865, the starvation of the citizenry was not as wide-spread as it was by 1865. It did exist, however, not to the extent that it did once "total war" raveged the countryside.
