There were 112 battles in the war, in which one side or the other lost over 500 in killed and wounded.
In all, there were 1,882 general engagements, battles, skirmishes, or affairs in which at least one regiment was engaged.
With this chapter is given a chronological list of the battles and minor engagements, showing the loss in each.
The figures are compiled from the battle reports and revised casualty lists in the. “Official Records
of the Union
and Confederate Armies,” published, or in process of publication, by the War Department at Washington
The figures in the table of Confederate losses are the ones officially reported by the Confederate
generals in command, or by their surgeon-general, to whom, in many instances, that duty seems to have been entrusted.
There are no official Confederate casualty reports for the latter part of the war, and so there is no statement of loss for several battles.
Estimates might be quoted, but such figures are not within the province of this work.
