Casualties of fifty Confederate regiments

From fox's
Regimental losses in the Civil War
showing remarkable percentages of losses at particular engagements based on official reports

Note—This list does not aim to include all the notable instances of remarkable casualties of regiments in the Confederate Army. It was based by Colonel Fox on available records where the numbers taken into action as well as the casualties were specified in official reports. The list is suggestive rather than complete, as many regiments omitted might with propriety claim to be included in any roll of ‘Fifty Fighting Regiments.’
