While not my area, I have studied the civil war. Your only answer I disagree with is #5. First, I think of modern warfare and total warfare as two different concepts. The civil war has been described as the first modern war because "modern" technologies were used extensively; used well before the 1864 campaigns. Further, the concept of "total war" was described by the great Clauswitz in the 1830s.
