Why the South Lost the Civil War?

The south lost the civil war because they were eventually outnumbered and lacked enough soldiers to keep the war going. The southern states who seceded from the union and started the conflict finally realized that after sending their men off to war, they didn’t have enough left to sufficiently defend their own territory, plus they lacked enough munitions to continue to fight the north which was better equipped. After suffering so many casualties and leaving themselves even more vulnerable they had to surrender.
