Why did the Civil War last so long?

Natalia E. Vélez Padua

The Civil War last for about 4 years that was one were most American soldiers were killed. First reason why the war last so long was because either side was not prepare for such big war. The South did not have experienced as the North, but the North did not fought with the same courage as the South. A second reason could be the climate changes, for example it was difficult to follow up the war during winter season because of the cold and they did not have that many of resources to continue it by that time. A third reason could be that the armies tried to take care of the soldier during little periods of time because of disease that were around and also by the necessity of soldiers they stop or pause the war for a moment.
