Concerning the US Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, between 46,000

and 51,000 Americans were casualties in the three-day battle. This

includes soldiers killed, wounded, and captured or missing. It's

safe to assume some of the men who were missing could have died and

not found. The Union: 3,155 men killed The Confederacy: 4,708

killed If you are considering "casualties" to only be those men who

died on the battlefield, the total would be 7,863.

Various sources provide varying numbers of losses. Some go into

great detail of breaking down the killed, wounded, captured and

MIA's. Basically the above figure on 46-51 casualties is accurate

enough.
