Hey Guys, I was doing some research and I found out that only 2/5 of the soldiers from the Union camps, and 2/7 of the soldiers from the Confederate camps actually died from war. According to Wikipedia out of the total 620,000 people who died in the Civil War only 210,000 were actually killed in action. That means that for every person that died from the actual war, 2 died from outside problems like disease. In my opinion, their were simple steps commanders could of taken that could of greatly prevented the loss of life from things like disease in the civil war. What do you think? Looking forward to seeing all your replies!
