The Civil War was fought as much with money and moral as it was fought with weapons. The Confederacy had so little to pay its troops that, come pay day, the soldiers would often walk away with little to no money. Added to those struggles was the Northern blockade of Savannah and the South's inability to engage in international trade. Even if the Confederacy had been able to get goods out, few would have wanted to trade with them and support the war. Many Europeans, like Fanny Kemble, actively opposed slavery and wanted it to end.
