TD, I would take issue with your assertion that the South had almost every advantage. The Confederacy had significant advantages in terrain and national political and military goals that they failed to capitalize on for a variety of reasons. They did have a fair shot to win the war but blew it because their missteps and Yankee tenacity. In fact, a thread on that historiographic debate might be worth doing sometime. However, I do think you are right about the presidential election of 1864. Cheers!
