A Curmudgeon Doc on the Eastern Shore of Maryland wondering what has happened to my country.
Hey Dr. C -Not sur if the Civil War referred to in the graph is the U.S. If it is, the number looks like only the Union side. The confederates side count is between 750,000 and 1.25 million.
I took the numbers from the link I gave. Its pretty thorough. Take a look. Here's a summary:American Civil War (1861-65) DoD (USA only) Battle deaths: 140,414 Other deaths: 224,097 TOTAL: 364,511McPherson, Battle Cry of Freedom (1988) United States: 360,000 Confederacy: 260,000 TOTAL: 620,000 Civilians: 50,000Britannica United States: 359,528 Confederacy: 258,000 TOTAL: 617,528Encyclopedia Americana (2003) United States: 360,222 k. in battle: 67,058 d. of wounds: 43,012 [Total battle deaths: 110,070]Confederacy: 258,000 k. in battle: 94,000[TOTAL: 618,222] [Battle deaths: 204,070]Regimental Losses In the American Civil War - William F.
