One question that developed early in my reading was why the ordinary white citizen of the South was such a good soldier, superior to the Union soldier.

That's a highly dubious proposition.

Enlisted men were roughly equal on both sides. The southern officer corps was on the whole better early in the war but by 1863 that had equalled out.
