Deaths in Confederate armies
A tabulation of Confederate losses as compiled from the muster-rolls on file in the Bureau of Confederate Archives
(In the report for 1865-66, made by General James B. Fry
, United States Provost Marshal-General
.) These returns are incomplete, and nearly all the Alabama
rolls are missing.
Still the figures show that at least 74,524 Confederate soldiers were killed or died of wounds, and that 59,297 died of disease.

, the authority on Civil War Statistics, states: ‘If the Confederate
rolls could have been completed, and then revised—as has been done with the rolls of the Union
regiments — the number of killed, as shown above (74,524), would be largely increased.
As it is, the extent of such increase must remain a matter of conjecture.
The Union rolls were examined at the same time, and a similar tabulation of the number killed appears, also, in General Fry
But this latter number was increased 15,000 by a subsequent revision based upon the papers known as ‘final statements’ and upon newly-acquired information received through affidavits filed at the Pension Bureau.’
