Best Answer

From the very start of the Civil War, in the year 1861, the North(Union Army) controlled over 80% of the shipyards as well as steamships, river boats, and the Navy. Obviously, this gave the Union a tremendous amount of leverage due to the subsequent monopoly over the local river systems and as well as the entire southern coast.
