I agree they thought they could win. I think they counted on the Border States joining them quickly, and the threat of King Cotton causing foreign powers to intervene early. I find the Cornerstone speech to be very informative on this.
Yes, I don't understand when people say that the Confederates knew the best could do is cause a draw. What army enters a war with a goal to cause a draw? That's comical to me...lol
