The question is vague as it asks about the "following" and provides no items to discuss.

However, be that as it may, we can explore what were disadvantages of the South when & during the Civil War. The South's disadvantages were:

A. Smaller pool of men to fuel the army, as the North had a significantly larger population;

B. No formal army existed in the South at the beginning of the war. The North's army was only 16,000 men but it was more than the South's;

C. The South had no manufacturing base to supply arms & ammunition and other products the Union army needed. The South had to play catch -up in creating factories; and

D. The South had no navy to protect its ports, it had to create one quickly but the North already had large shipyards to build warships.
