The number of casualties in the US Civil war is greater than the number of casualties in all other US wars combined. If you believe that the purpose of the Civil war was to rid the country of slavery then you would have to include all the Union soldiers. That would 596,270 who were "wounded, captured or missing." Of that number, 350,000 were deaths, 110,000 direct battle deaths, and 250,000 deaths due to either complications from wounds, or other illnesses contracted in the course of duty. How you decide to count the deaths depends therefore, on how you view those deaths which were not caused directly in battle.

Of course, in addition there were the deaths of many southerners, some of whom, while opposing slavery itself, fought for state in the belief that that state had the right to determine it's own course. A large group, and perhaps even a majority of Southerners were in this camp as, as far as we can tell, though it is difficult to come by reliable measures for the period.

In addition, of course, there were small, but significant conflicts long before the civil war, as in the "Bleeding Kansas" and the John Brown uprising at Harper's Ferry.

And finally, you have to ask yourself how many slaves over the 300+ years of slavery died trying to escape or otherwise from the abuse of slavery. Some of these, Nat Turner, for one, led unsuccessful rebellions.

Hope this helps you get perspective on the question.

Civil war song lyrics


Your best bet would be to use Google to search for the meaning of a particular song.

A good search string would be something like this, where you substitute the name_of_the_song with the name of the song you are searching for (put it in quotes):

the meaning of the civil war song "name_of_the_song"

Causes of the civil war


Civil war in which country? I'm sure civil war occurred in almost every country. If it is AMERICA then it's because of SLAVES and non slaves. Oh and also states versus federal rights and economic differences and so on. Please be more specific in your question. Hope this helps.
