There are no muster-out rolls of the Confederate regiments. There are partial sets of muster-rolls and monthly returns at Washington in the Bureau of Confederate Archives; but they are defective and incomplete. There is no way of determining accurately the mortuary loss of each Confederate regiment during its entire service.

The total losses of a few regiments have been ascertained from other sources. The History of Gregg's South Carolina Brigade states the number of deaths in each regiment, and, judging from the casualty lists given for each action, the statistics are substantially correct.

  Killed and Died of Wounds. Died of Disease.
Gregg's Brigade. Officers. En. Men. Total. Officers. En. Men. Total.
1st South Carolina 21 260 281   156 156
12th South Carolina 17 213 230 2 182 184
13th South Carolina 17 203 220 5 257 262
14th South Carolina 16 208 224 4 322 326
1st South Carolina Rifles 19 305 324 3 198 201
Total 90 1,189 1,279 14 1,115 1,129

But the loss in action of this famous brigade was largely in excess of other commands. The average number of killed in the Confederate regiments was something less than 150.

The desperate character of the fighting entailed a large loss of life upon the general officers. The following list has been compiled from the official reports, but some names may possibly have been omitted.
