About 620,000 soldiers died in the U.S. civil war. The Union lost around 360,000 killed (110,000 in combat) and the Confederacy lost around 260,000 killed (93,000 in comba…t). About 360,00 Union soldiers and around 260,000 Confederate solders died in the American Civil War. A hole 5 percent of the states population was lost. Many were wounded. Back then the medican was so premature all they could do to save the wounded was to amputate. All they could amputate were limbs. Stomache wounds were fatal. More soldiers died from diseases than from battle wounds from the poor living conditions, and because many soldiers did not know how to live off the land. About 600,000 people died from the north and south in the American Civil War (1861 t0 1865). There are some published estimates that reach up to 650,000 US Civil War deaths.
The American Civil War was fought by boys. An account published in the Marion, Indiana Chronicle lists 2,778,304 men enlisted in the Union Army of which 25 were 10 years and y…ounger. These are boys without family or the sons of men who could not leave them behind. 38 of these were 11 years. These were boys from broken homes or orphanages who had just outgrown their welcome. 225 were 12 years old. These could have been homeless boys or ones that were unable to find a job. You have to remember that in the time of the Civil War, societies were still groping for territory. 309 were 13 years old. These were young men of families that had become bored with living at home and yearned for adventure. 1,525 were14 years old. These were generally boys who were smart but did not feel the need to further their education. 104,987 were 15 years old. These boys joined the army early and often. 321,051 were 16 years old. You have to remember that in those days boys of this age were considered men. With the influx of these the union army became an army. 844,391 were 17 years old. As in all societies, there are some men who exhibit leadership qualities. These were them. 1,151,428 were 18 years old. These men, being a year older were more mature and therefore susceptible to structure. 2,159,798 were 18 to 22 years old. It was of these men that the bulk of the infantry was taken. A common trait among these men was that they would never shirk their duty. 618,511 were 22 to 26 years old. These men were the corporals, sergeants, lieutenants, captains and sometimes generals. From here we jump to 46,462, the number of men from 26 to 45 years old. These men filled all the ranks, giving aid and instruction to the green kids in the field. Lastly, 16,971 were more than 46 years. Again, you have to remember that age reverence in these years was a practice. These men were peppered through the ranks and generally became officers, though not all.
