  • Fact 1: At the outbreak of the Civil War, the U.S. Army consisted of just 16,000 men in ten regiments.
  • Fact 2: By the end of the war, more than two million men had joined the Union Army, most of them volunteers.
  • Fact 3: The Union Army had four generals-in-chief over 27 years: Winfield Scott, George B. McClellan, Henry W. Halleck, and Ulysses S. Grant.
  • Fact 4: Of the 2,213,363 men who fought for the Union, 364,511 were killed and 281,881 wounded; this 1-in-4 casualty rate was the highest of any American war before or since.
  • Fact 5: The American Civil War killed more than 620,000 soldiers, or over 2% of the US population. A loss on that scale today would claim over 6 million people.
