Loss In Engagements In The Civil War Where The Total Was Five Hundred Or More On The Side Of The Union Troops

Although the losses here given are generally based on official medical returns, the figures must not be taken as perfectly reliable, for in many instances the returns were based on estimates, and the totals of losses were, by later and more reliable returns, sometimes considerably reduced. Confederate losses are generally based on estimates.
