The Civil War began 159 years ago this month. The death toll of that war remains higher than both World Wars, Korea, and Vietnam combined but did you know that 2/3's of the casualties were from disease? We wonder how many of these brave boys survived?

Two of my Great Grandfathers were wounded in action in the U.S. Civil War - one in KY and the other in VA. I also had an ancestral uncle wounded at Antietam. Additionally I had 2 Great Great Grandfathers serve on the US side - one as a "Home Guardsman" in PA, and the other in a NY regular army regiment.

Same with the Revolutionary War; there was a smallpox epidemic at the same time, and all dead were counted as war-related.

Also they amputated more than all others.

In fact, more Americans died in the Civil War than in ALL the other wars in which the U.S. has been involved.

But let's be careful with words. "Casualties" and "deaths" don't overlap completely. Casualties comprise soldiers killed, soldiers wounded, she sometimes soldiers taken prisoner.

Had great great grandfathers on both sides of the question. My confederate was in the 31st Virginia medical nurse and served under Stonewall Jackson and others. At least one of his brothers was in the 25th Virginia and many other cousins in the 19th Virginia as other cousins were in the 31st and 25th. My Union GG grandfather and his brother served in the 100th Indiana. The brother was a quartermaster who was near and part of 16 major battles and was part of the march on Atlanta. The grandfather was a locomotive engineer. My confederates were at and in many of the battles in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. I believe that my confederate nurse was support for Pickett's charge at Gettysburg.
