  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    90; 600.  In fact, the United States had only about forty ships that could be called militarily effective at the beginning of the war.  Hundreds of civilian ships were pressed into service while the Northern shipyards churned out modern warships and gunboats.  The Southern navy was outmanned and outshipped throughout the war, compelling a strategic focus on blockade running, commerce raiding, and fort building.
