How did the Union casualties of the Overland campaign compare to the casualties suffered by previous Union generals in the Eastern Theater?
Under the command of generals McClellan, Burnside, and Meade, the Army of the Potomac suffered 82,600 casualties in two years of battling the Army of Northern Virginia. Under General Grant's Overland campaign of 1864, Union casualties numbered 64,000 in a span of six weeks.
General John Pope's casualties in the Battle of the Second Bull Run are excluded from these figures as he commanded the Army of Virginia for the most part, with troops from the Army of the Potomac arriving too late to impact the battle.
The Russians lost about 10 million soldiers on the eastern front, of which approx. 4 million died as pow's (almost all Russian pow's died in German captivity). In addition to that about 20 million Russian civilians died. Germany lost in total 5.5 million dead soldiers and 1.8 million dead civilian…s. In addition to that about 8 million German soldiers were captured. On the eastern front approx. 3.5-4 million German soldiers died (around 75%). At the end of the war, the Russians held about 3 million German pow's, Americans held about 4 million (of which they transferred 1 million after the war to the Russians), and the british held about 1 million German pow's. So the biggest losses of the Germans were indeed on the eastern front, but if you also take pow's into account, losses are almost matched. This site contains a breakdown of all casualties during ww2 per battle: http://users.erols.com/mwhite28/ww2stats.htm The German military suffered around 2,800,000 killed. Of these around 2,000,000 died on the Eastern Front, 300,000 died on other fronts, and 500,000 died in captivity. The Soviet Union suffered 14,500,000 killed total. Of these 3,330,000 died in captivity. (MORE)
Answer \n. Russia lost 17,700,000 between military conflicts and concentration camps and as many as 14 mil. civilians \n
Answer . Union: 3,155 killed, 14,531 wounded, 5,369 missing = total 23,055 Confederate: 4,708 killed, 12,693 wounded, 5,830 missing = total 23,231
Iran was the nation that suffered the fewest casualties in WWIInumbering only 200 resistance soldiers. The Soviet Union was thenation that suffered the greatest number of casualties in World WarII numbering over 23 million.
In World War 2, Germany suffered more casualties than either Italyor Japan. Only Russia and China suffered more casualties thanGermany.
If you are referring to World War II, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the United States suffered the fewest civilian casualties because they are all so far from the main area of the fighting and in general were spared the bombing of civilians by enemy aircraft.
Of course there isn't an exact number... but there was an estimated 7,500,000 dead and 5,000,000 wounded.
The Union suffered over 2,100 killed, over 9,500 wounded and over700 captured men on September 17, 1862 at the Battle of Antietam.
Of the major countries that participated in World War I, the UnitedStates suffered the fewest casualties. WW1 lasted from July 28,1914 to November 11, 1918.
The first Battle of Bull Run took place on July 21, 1861. The Unionwas defeated and suffered 2,600 casualties.
Approximately 360,000 Union troops died during the American Civil War from battle wounds, diseases and other causes.
George B. McClellan headed the Union Army of the Potomac in theeast during the Civil War. McClellan also, as general in chief,commanded all Union forces.
Russia suffered the most and I believe about 22 million Russians died or somewhere around that number, more of their citizens died as well because of they were so poor and starving to death
Casualty figures show numbers of dead or wounded - sometimes captured and missing too, as they are initially calculated to help the army commanders assess the situation.
This battle was actually a series of battles along the same front and lasted from May 8 to May 19, 1864. The totals given here are estimates, with the Army of the Potomac absorbing 2700 killed, 13,416 wounded and 2,200 missing or captured. The totals for the Confederate forces are vague but estimate…d as 10,000 casualties of all types. (MORE)
Major General Sherman's March to the Sea was conducted to show theSouth how futile their continued fighting was, by demonstratingthat the Union could march an army through the heartland of theConfederacy, destroying everything in sight by conducting totalwar.
What general was made commander of the Union armies in both the Eastern and Western theaters of war?
Ulysses S. Grant was made commander of the Union armies in both theEastern and Western theaters of war.
During the American Civil War, General Ulysses S. Grant was madecommander of both the eastern and western theaters. He led unionforces to victory over the Confederacy and took Robert E. Lee'ssword in surrender at Appomattox Courthouse.
Although the Union ad wonthe Civil War (1861-1865) they had about 110.070 soldiers die from battle . They had about 360,222 die in all (250,152 men died from disease).
During the Battle of Vimy Ridge 3,598 Canadians were killed and7,004 wounded. It was a huge success and marked the first time allfour Canadian divisions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force foughttogether as a single unit, and since then it has been widelyaccepted that the battle was the birth of Can…ada's nationalidentity.

The Battle of Gettysburg, in Pennsylvania, July 1-3, 1863. But I believe it was the other way around, with the north suffering the larger loss.
Retreating toward Nashville Confederates were soundly defeated at the Battle if suffering 6000 casualties including six generals to 2300 casualties for the Union?
That's the Battle of Franklin . The Confederates weren't retreating, they were advancing. What they didn't realize was that Schofield was making a tactical retreat, in order to link up with George Thomas in Nashville, and had no wish to make a stand at Franklin. The battle was unnecessary.
You should bend their knees up to their chest while having them lean on a flat surface with their back
US Grant recognized the importance of continuing to seize theinitiative and press the campaign regardless of wins/losses inspecific battles. He lost battles at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania,Cold Harbor, but continued to press the attack rather than retreatand regroup as all previous commanders had do…ne. He knew that evenwhile losing battles, he was winning the war. When a general disregards the lives of his soldiers to meet somepolitical objective, this can be a danger sign. Also, the previousUnion commanders in the east faced larger Confederate armies. (MORE)
Russia. They lost some 23 million people, with China in second losing some 20 million.
If you suspect a casualty is suffering from heat stroke, immediately request medical assistance and transport. If it is safe, move them to a shaded area. Remove any extra clothing. Give them cool sips of water with a pinch of salt. Treat for shock. Call 911.
Like most Civil War Generals on both sides, he was unaware of what a soldier with the new types of rifles they were equipped with in the war could do to the enemy. Plus General Ambrose Burnside was a terrible general who sent wave after wave of soldiers into battle, even though it was obvious that t…hey had no chance of victory (without a great many casualties). Gen. Burnside was sent home after the failure of the Crater attack on Vicksburg and not recalled back to duty. In WWI, such experiences were repeated; only this time by sending wave after wave of soldiers against the enemy armed with machines guns. The machine guns did the same thing, only much worse than the rifles did in the Civil War. (MORE)

you should take him to a shade area and give him water take off the extra cloth or equipment. if it doesnt work you have to put that person on a colder area With AC and call a medic.
US Forces had 63 killed and 367 wounded. Mexican Forces lost an estimated 436 killed, 764 wounded and 3,000 prisoners.
Immediately request medical assistance and transport. Another Answer: If you've identified Heat Stroke (not Heat Exhaustion), you'll know that the major problem you have right now is that core temperature has risen to the point where normal body controls for hyperthermia are no longer 100% active.… So the first thing to do is to cool the victim down. Showers and baths are good for this. Remember that you don't need to turn them hypothermic; just lower their core temp until the body takes over and helps itself. Once temp approaches norms, consider the administration of electrolytes -- PO if the patient is 100% aware, or SQ or IV if not. Heat Stroke is a serious condition and it's wise to consider medical review for this. (MORE)
Heat stroke, unlike heat exhaustion, occurs when the victim's core temperature overheats (hyperthermia) to the point where the body's own system for temperature regulation is impaired. At this point, sweating stops, and the pulse becomes slow and pounding in mild cases, where in more extreme cases, …tachycardia and tachypnia may set in. Skin tone is flushed, hot and dry -- there usually is no apparent sweat. The patient's body temperature will be elevated, often significantly. Hyperthermia is diagnosed at temperature greater than 100-101F, and may proceed to 104F or even higher. Over 104F is to be considered life threatening. It's critical that the patient's core temperature be reduced to manageable levels. In the field this can be attempted by getting in the shade and drinking cool water, but don't expect much by way of results, especially in humid conditions. Active measures like swabbing the patient with water, or immersion in cool (not cold) water should help a lot more. (MORE)
The Romans were decisively defeated with heavy casualties at the battles of Trebia , Lake of Trasimene and Cannae .
Most of the records were unclear or incomplete but each country had a rough estimate of how many people they would have lost.

Why did General Giap believe that the vietnamese could defeat the Americans even if they suffered greater casualties?
General Giap was a very wily military commander and was more experienced than the American leadership would believe. He understood that war was not about numbers or equipment or even casualty statistics. Winning war is about breaking the enemies' will to fight. It is proven in history that a people …fighting to protect their homeland will fight harder and longer to do so. Giap knew this, and he proved it by defeating "superior" French colonial forces some years before with his guerrilla army. He knew the same could be done to the US; he knew that the Vietnamese would fight to the last and that the Americans would withdraw before it came to that. Giap was not worried about that casualties would end his war effort; his guerrilla style would ensure that the enemy was incapable of completely subduing him. It took some years and many casualties on all sides, but eventually Giap's strategy would prove instrumental in securing victory over the US by voluntary withdrawal, not total surrender. (MORE)
Roughly 11,000 allied (Australians, New Zealanders, and Americans) were killed. 80,000 Japanese troops were killed.
Immediately request medical assistance. Then, it is important tocool the victim's body temperature down immediately by submersingthem into a tub of cold water. If you can cool their bodytemperature down within the first 30 minutes of the onset of a heatstroke, the victim has a much better chance of …surviving withoutcomplications. (MORE)
It always had more troops to replace its losses. The South only had half the population - a third of them slaves. After Grant ended the system of prisoner-exchange, the Confederates simply ran out of manpower, and had to surrender for that simple reason.
No. The Confederate army seemed to have more aggressive generals. They were pronged to charge and move instead of stay in a defensive position. This brought a lot of victories at the start of the war but it also resulted in high casualties. I used to play wargames and you learn a lot about the effe…ct a general would have on a battle. Most war games rate the Confederate generals higher than the Union general---on the average. (MORE)
Without knowing what expedition the question is referring to, it is hard to say what type of casuality was suffered by the person or team. Many expeditions tend to lose a few people due to weather conditions.
In order to determine how many casualities were suffered during an expedition, a person must first know what expedition is being talked about. Some expeditions tend to lose a few people from bad weather conditions.
Approximately 10,142, though that does not include deaths by disease, obliteration of remains; (not finding a body to count), and the fog of war.
Total 2896 - killed, wounded and missing. This was considered shocking at the time, but it was dwarfed by the later casualty-figures.
The casualties on the Union side were: 11,116 in killed and wounded, 5,676 in prisoners and missing.

Heat exhaustion can lead to a more serious condition known as heat stroke. It is extremely important to remove a person suffering heat exhaustion from the source of heat and rehydrate them as quickly as possible. Putting cool compresses on the forehead, neck, armpits, and groin area can help to rele…ase excess heat. If involuntary contractions of the muscle begin to occur, it is necessary to call emergency services. If there is IV trained medical personel on-hand, administering a saline solution is encouraged.

It appears you need to provide more information...the Allies overhistory had casualties in wars large and small. Feel free to editthe answer for more specifics, and someone will answer itappropriately.
Union general Nathaniel Banks was blamed for the failure of the RedRiver Campaign. This series of battles took place between March andMay of 1864.
Approximately 620,000 soldiers died from combat, accident, starvation, and disease during the Civil War. This number comes from an 1889 study of the war performed by William F. Fox and Thomas Leonard Livermore. Both men fought for the Union.
The Union suffered 17,197 casualties at Chancellorsville: 1,606killed, 9,672 wounded, and 5,919 missing. These numbers include the4,000 men of the XI Corps who were captured on May 2. When youcompare only the killed and wounded numbers on both sides, theywere nearly the same. However, the Confederat…e forces fielded lessthan half the total number the Union did during the battle, sotheir percentage lost was much higher. However, the battle wasstill considered a Confederate victory, as the Union withdrew fromthe battlefield. (MORE)
