31377 1/30 Scale Matte Finish 1 Piece Set From the beginning of the war, the South was outgunned in arms and ordnance; outmatched in material and stores; outclassed in rail and general infrastructure. They had little in the way of anything necessary to successfully prosecute a war. Except for the men. The fighting sons of the South seemed to possess a certain dash and élan lacking in their brothers from the North. This quality of spirit was instilled in them by an elite officer corps and a string of early and overwhelming victories; both battles of Bull Run, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville all inspired a sense of certitude and determination in the ranks. This false sense of security began to fade with the events of 1-3 July, 1863.
