|I wonder how much the self-embargo was merely a stating of the obvious - similar to me saying 'I wont be playing quarterback for the Colts this year'.
As Sherman said just after SC seceded:
'The North can make a steam engine, locomotive or railway car.
Hardly a yard of cloth or pair of shoes can you make.

You are bound to fail.
Only in your spirit and determination are you prepared for war. In all else you are totally unprepared.'
