Item description for Regimental Losses in the American Civil War by William F. Fox...
Regimental Losses is one of the most important reference sources for anyone studying America's Civil War. William F. Fox, a Colonel during the war, used documents from both the Federal Government and State Governments to compile this massive work. Regimental Losses includes statistics and analyses detailing the number of men killed in particular battles; the regiments that lost the most men throughout the war and in particular battles; the "Three Hundred Fighting Regiments" of the Union Army; the total number of men who enlisted by state; and losses by state. But Fox's work is not all about the numbers. Fox includes chapters on Generals, Chaplains, and Surgeons killed in battle; a history of each Army Corps; famous Divisions and Brigades; and the history of U. S. Colored Regiments and their losses in the war. A concluding chapter provides losses in the Confederate Army, including Confederate Generals killed in action; the strength of the various Confederate Armies; and losses in individual Confederate Regiments in particular battles. Anyone studying the American Civil War, from the most seasoned scholar to the newest enthusiast, should have Fox's Regimental Losses on their library shelves. Index included.
