American Revolution Battle DeathsVarious sites on the internet give the following figures for the American Revolution, regarding American Revolutionary War battle deaths. The best way to find the answer would be to visit the website listed below, although here is a rough estimate.

American Revolution (1775�1783) Total people in service--217,000 Battle deaths: 4,435 Non mortal woundings: 6,188



27,500 Americans 10,000 british so about 37,500


When it came to the war and the losses of life, about 7,200 Americans were killed in battle during the Revolutionary War. Approximately 8,200 were wounded. Around 10,000 others died in military camps from disease or exposure. Some 8,500 would die in prison after being captured by the British. American military deaths from all causes during the war adds up to 25,700 people.

In addition, approximately 1,400 soldiers were missing.

British military deaths total about 10,000.

Fighting began on April 19, 1775 at Lexington, Mass. and nearby Concord. British strategy called for crushing the rebellion in the North. Several times the British nearly defeated the Continental Army. But victories at Trenton and Princeton, N.J., in late 1776 and early 1777 restored patriot hopes, and victory at Saratoga, N.Y., which halted a British advance from Canada, led France to intervene on behalf of the rebels.In 1778, fighting shifted to the South. Britain succeeded in capturing Georgia and Charleston, S.C. and defeating an American army at Camden, S.C. But bands of patriots harassed loyalists and disrupted supply lines, and Britain failed to achieve control over the southern countryside before advancing northward to Yorktown, Va. In 1781, an American and French force defeated the British at Yorktown in the war's last major battle.CONSEQUENCES:
