history - Civil War Photos, Part 1 of 3: "The Places" (by Alan Taylor, The Atlantic, 'In Focus', 8Feb12))

Last year marked the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War.  Remember & Honor Them All.  - A free Civil War daily news app for tablets: "American Civil War Gazette" by Rick L.

Some fantastic pictures at:
Casualties in the Civil War
     Last year marked the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War, a milestone commemorated by The Atlantic in a special issue (now available online).  Although photography was still in its infancy, war correspondents produced thousands of images, bringing the harsh realities of the frontlines to those on the home front in a new and visceral way.  As brother fought brother and the nation's future grew uncertain, the public appetite for information was fed by these images from the trenches, rivers, farms, and cities that became fields of battle.  Today's collection is part 1 of 3, covering the places of the Civil War: the battleships, prisons, hospitals, urban centers, and rural pastures where history was made.  Tomorrow's installment features some of the people involved in the conflict, and on Friday I'll be sharing some of the amazing three-dimensional stereographs of the war.  Keep in mind, as you view these photographs, that they were taken 150 years ago -- providing a glimpse of a United States that was only 85 years old at the time. [48 photos] -- Alan Taylor, The Atlantic 'In Focus', 8Feb12

The Price in Blood!
        At least 618,000 Americans died in the Civil War, and some experts say the toll reached 700,000.  The number that is most often quoted is 620,000.  At any rate, these casualties exceed the nation's loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam.
        The Union armies had from 2,500,000 to 2,750,000 men.  Their losses, by the best estimates:

Battle deaths:110,070
Disease, etc.:250,152
Total360,222
        The Confederate strength, known less accurately because of missing records, was from 750,000 to 1,250,000.  Its estimated losses:

Battle deaths:94,000
Disease, etc.:164,000
Total258,000
        The leading authority on casualties of the war, Thomas L. Livermore, admitting the handicap of poor records in some cases, studied 48 of the war's battles and concluded:
        Of every 1,000 Federals in battle, 112 were wounded.
        Of every 1,000 Confederates, 150 were hit.
        Mortality was greater among Confederate wounded, because of inferior medical service.  The great battles, in terms of their toll in dead, wounded, and missing is listed on this site:   

The Ten Costliest Battles of the Civil War.
        Some of the great blood baths of the war came as Grant drove on Richmond in the spring of 1864 - Confederate casualties are missing for this campaign, but were enormous.  The Federal toll:

The Wilderness, May 5-7:17,666
Spotsylvania, May 10 and 12:10,920
Drewry's Bluff, May 12-164,160
Cold Harbor, June 1-3:12,000
Petersburg, June 15-3016,569
    These total 61,315, with rolls of the missing incomplete.
        The Appomattox campaign, about ten days of running battles ending April 9, 1865, cost the Union about 11,000 casualties, and ended in the surrender of Lee's remnant of 26,765.  Confederate dead and wounded in the meantime were about 6,500.
        Lesser battles are famous for their casualties.  At Franklin, Tennessee, November 30, 1864, General Hood's Confederates lost over 6,000 of 21,000 effectives -most of them in about two hours.  Six Confederate generals died there.
        Hood lost about 8,ooo men in his assault before Atlanta, July 22, 1864; Sherman's Union forces lost about 3,800.
        The small battle of Wilson's Creek, Missouri, August 10, 1861, was typical of the savagery of much of the war's fighting.  The Union force Of 5,400 men lost over 1,200; the Confederates, over 11,000 strong, lost about the same number.
        The first battle of Manassas/Bull Run, though famous as the first large engagement, was relatively light in cost: 2,708 for the Union, 1,981 for the Confederates.
        The casualty rolls struck home to families and regiments.
        The Confederate General, John B. Gordon, cited the case of the Christian family, of Christiansburg, Virginia, which suffered eighteen dead in the war.
        The 1st Maine Heavy Artillery, in a charge at Petersburg, Virginia, 18 June, 1864, sustained a "record" loss of the war-635 of its 900 men within seven minutes.
        Another challenger is the 26th North Carolina, which lost 714, of its 800 men at Gettysburg-in numbers and percentage the war's greatest losses.  On the first day this regiment lost 584 dead and wounded, and when roll was called the next morning for G Company, one man answered, and he had been knocked unconscious by a shell burst the day before.  This roll was called by a sergeant who lay on a stretcher with a severe leg wound.
        The 24th Michigan, a gallant Federal regiment which was in front of the North Carolinians on the first day, lost 362 of its 496 men.
        More than 3,000 horses were killed at Gettysburg, and one artillery battalion, the 9th Massachusetts, lost 80 of its 88 animals in the Trostle farmyard.
        A brigade from Vermont lost 1,645 - of its 2,100 men during a week of fighting in the Wilderness.
        The Irish Brigade, Union, had a total muster Of 7,000 during the war, and returned to New York in '65 with 1,000.  One company was down to seven men.  The 69th New York of this brigade lost 16 of 19 officers, and had 75 per cent casualties among enlisted men.
        In the Irish Brigade, Confederate, from Louisiana, Company A dwindled from 90 men to 3 men and an officer in March, '65.  Company B went from 100 men to 2.
        Experts have pointed out that the famed Light Brigade at Balaklava lost only 36.7 per cent of its men, and that at least 63 Union regiments lost as much as 50 per cent in single battles.  At Gettysburg 23 Federal regiments suffered losses of more than half their strength, including the well-known Iron Brigade (886 of 1,538 engaged).
        Many terrible casualty tolls were incurred in single engagements, like that of the Polish Regiment of Louisiana at Frayser's Farm during the Seven Days, where the outfit was cut to pieces and had to be consolidated with the 20th Louisiana.  In this action one company of the Poles lost 33 of 42 men.
        One authority reports that Of 3,530 Indians who fought for the Union, 1,018 were killed, a phenomenally high rate.  Of 178,975 Negro Union troops, this expert says, over 36,000 died.
        Some regimental losses in battle:

1st Texas, CSAAntietam22682.3
1st Minnesota, USGettysburg26282
21st Georgia, CSAManassas24276

8th Vermont, USCedar Creek15667.9
Palmetto Sharpshooters, CSAFrayser's Farm21567.7
81st Pennsylvania, USFredericksburg26167.4
        Scores of other regiments on both sides registered losses in single engagements of above 50 per cent.
        Confederate losses by states, in dead and wounded only, and with many records missing (especially those of Alabama):


North Carolina20,602
Virginia6,947
Mississippi6,807
South Carolina4,760
Arkansas3,782
Georgia3,702
Tennessee3,425
Louisiana3,059
Texas1,260
Florida1,047
Alabama724
(Statisticians recognize these as fragmentary, from a report of 1866; they serve as a rough guide to relative losses by states).
        In addition to its dead and wounded from battle and disease, the Union listed:
Deaths in Prison24,866
Drowning4,944
Accidental deaths4,144
Murdered520
Suicides391
Sunstroke313
Military executions267

"Over the last four years our national debt has risen nearly $6 trillion, and just last week the debt topped an astounding $16 trillion.  To put that in perspective, $16 trillion is enough money to fund the US military, along with the military of every NATO country combined… for the next sixteen years!  Government spending is projected to hit $3.8 trillion this year alone.  Even after every tax dollar paid by Americans has been counted, the government will still overspend by another $1.13 trillion.  Every single second of the day our government spends over $12,000.  So in the time it takes you to read this article, roughly five minutes, our government has spent $3.6 million.  It take four seconds for the government to spend what the average American earns in an entire year."  (source: by Tim Phillips 17Sep12 at TownHall.com)
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself.  They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good." -- George Washington
