Yeah, the historical US census browser is at

As an aside, the mere recitation of such data is a favorite of the
neo-Confederate apologists who like to tally up such things as a means
of showing that the Union had an overwhelming advantage.  The underlying
assumption is that an acre of improved land...that the loyal states were
in a position to mobilize these assets for the suppression of the
slaveholder's rebellion.

They weren't.

Indeed, I'd argue that the war revolutionized management, one of the
things that made it a bourgeois revolution.
