Roughly about 500,000 According to Wikipedia, during the American Civil War, 1861-1865, 3,164,000 people served their countries, 2,100,000 from the Union and 1,064,000 from th…e Confederacy. The Union lost 360,000 total war dead, of that number 110,000 were killed in action, and the Confederacy lost 260,000 total war dead, of that number 93,000 were killed in action. It seems hard to believe that so many died outside of combat, but for every one soldier killed because of combat, usually two or more died of disease. Killed in Action (Union and Confederate): 203,000 Total Dead (Union and Confederate): 620,000 Another some 412,200+ were wounded, of that number 275,200 were Union, and 137,000+ were Confederate. All said, some 635,200 Union soldiers were killed or wounded, and 397,000 Confederates were killed or wounded. All together, 1,032,200 people were killed or wounded during the Civil War!

No one really knows how many people really died in the civil war. An estimated number of people from both sides, the Confederate and the Union is about 600,000 people, which m…akes the Civil war one of America's deadliest wars. An estimated of 250,000 people died from the Confederate army and an estimated of 350,000 Union troops died in battle. Some troops disappeared and some others fled from battle after they got their pay checks.

the answer to this question is unknown none of the websites or books know
The exact number has not been recorded.
I don't know if there are any reliable or consistent records on horse deaths in the civil war, however my guess is that it would easily be in the tens of thousands.
About 2.4 million horses were believed to have been brought into the war. With about 1 million horse casultes
About 600,000. Experts think that 700,000 died.
In US Civil War
Approximately 650,000 soldiers died fighting in the Civil War. About one-third died in battle and two-thirds died from diseases that plagued the army camps. In addition, ten…s of thousands of Civil War soldiers were never accounted for. The actual number of dead is sometimes estimated to be much higher. One reason that we don't know exact numbers for the southern army is that the Army of Northern Virginia lost its war diary in the final days of the war during a Union raid. A tremendous amount of historical information was lost that day.
No one can say exactly, but almost all the soldiers who died were Caucasians. No one can even say exactly how many men were in either army, north or south, nor how many died. …The best estimates are that 360,000 northern soldiers and 260,000 southern soldiers died. Two died of disease for every one killed in battle. The best study of northern records indicates that around 180,000 black troops eventually served in the northern armies, and of those, 1,800 died. So one out of every 200 dead Yankees was black (.5%) and the rest were Caucasian. There were no black southern troops until the last month or two of the war, and those never finished training and saw no action, and so far as I know none died. No one can say how many civilian deaths were directly or indirectly attributable to the war, but the civilian death rate was much lower than in any war from WWII on. Armies then still made every effort to spare civilians.
