Blockade Runners
These were ships built by the British that allowed individuals living in the South during the Civil War to continue selling their goods. They valued speed very highly.
Blockade Runners: Cargo
Ships of this kind delivered supplies the South needed, such as weaponry, and often took goods produced in the South, such as tobacco and cotton.
Northern / Union Blockade
The North applied this strategy by blocking the South from shipping goods. This was effective because cotton exports fueled the Confederate economy.
Union Blockade: Effects
This tactic negatively affected how well the South could raise cash during the Civil War, leading to hyperinflation. It also made goods increasingly scarce, further raising prices.
