The soldiers did not seem to have enough supplies, clothing, and food. This was especially true of the Southern soldiers. Some did not even have the basics of clothing, like boots. Food rations often consisted of hard tack, which was nutritionally insufficient, and notoriously contained worms and other vermin. I know that the North had more money and the factories to build weapons, but the South had the food supplies. One would think that the North would have been set up for guns and cannons, but the South was well-fed. But this was not how it was. What was the reasoning for this?
