No, the majority of deaths in the Civil War were from illness and infection. Huge numbers of recruits never even saw battle before they died in the camps.<quoted text> Check the K.I.A.stats.Don't get the civil war confused with WWI, when influenza killed twenty million people.Here is a fact: more Northerners were killed in the Civil War, than Southerners.I'm not proud of it, but calling the Southerners a "bunch of wimps"diminishes not only them, but the North as well, which suffered horrendously.I'd hate to think that a " bunch of wimps"killed so many of my people.
I don't distinguish between the North and South dead. It was simply a bloodletting based in evil and ignorance. The tragic flaw in the American character that allowed it still hasn't been repaired even today.
