Also -
The North had 1.3 million industrial workers, while the South had 110,000. 

I'd read a slightly different comparison. I don't recall the exact numbers, but it was that however many factory workers the south had, the north had that many factories.

All of which only illustrate the impossibility of the job he was appointed to do. It wasn't his fault that southern leaders kicked off a devastating war. Although his ineptitude can be called into the lime-light, he gets far too much blame for the Confederacy's failure.
