American Civil War Fact Five

A casualty was any soldier that entered battle and afterward was not fit to continue to take part in the next battle. That meant it covered any soldier who died or couldn't continue due to injury or sickness or even if they were captured or went missing in action. Of all the casualties 5.7 percent or about 85,200 were inflicted by cannon.
