that is true. I remember reading a book about the trent affair several years ago. If i'm not mistaken it was about a U.S naval ship boarding a British ship without reason. But if England would have helped the CSA would they have sent troops along with supplies or just supplies? I could be wrong but i think the key to the souths success would have been to get that help during the first year or two of the war. By 1864 the south didnt have means to transport enough supplies from place to place. I heard that a train could derail several times on its way from OCCH to richmond.
