What did the south name its army after?

The south named its armies for the Department in which they operated. The entire south was divided into military departments, with a commander in each, who was also commander of the army troops in his Department. Thus, Lee commanded the Department of Northern Virginia (which was Virginia north of the James River) and so his army was the Army of Northern Virginia. The other main Rebel Army was the Army of Tennessee, from the Department of Tennessee. The north named its armies after rivers, so there was the Army of the Potomac, the Army of the Ohio, The Army of the Cumberland, the Army of the James, the Army of the Tennessee, and so on.
