What invention or technology should have and could have been used more efficiently during the Civil War? Is it the use of rockets, air balloons, grenades, repeating rifles, the Gatling gun, the used of land and sea mines, ect.?

My opinion would probably be the use of the Gatling gun more efficiently for the North. Who knows what it could have done if it was placed on an ironclad or even a monitor. For the South there were tons of technologies and inventions they should have used more efficiently, but I'm not sure how many of them the South could have used more efficiently.
