IMPROVED ANSWER:About 620,000 soldiers died during the American Civil War. The Union lost about 360,000 troops, and the Confederacy lost about 260,000. More than half of the deaths were caused by disease. About a third of all Southern soldiers died in the war, compared with about a sixth of all Northern soldiers.
There were more soldiers that died of disease during the US Civil War than battlefield related deaths. The Union suffered 110,000 battle deaths either killed in action (KIA) or mortally wounded, (MW) which means the soldier would die later because of his wounds.
