But the heart can't beat without a supply of energy.  For the Confederacy, that energy was coming from the West. Virginia's supplies were used up.  North Carolina was holding onto her supplies.  South Carolina never had much.  When the West was won by the North, the heart would beat only so long as the energy at hand would last.  That was only a few months.
