Interesting Facts about the American Civil War

I found this on the internet yesterday. it shows a whole series of facts about the civil war highlighting the differences between the Northern Union and the Southern Confederacy.

Interesting info and well laid out.  


When you look at the numbers its hard to imagine that the outcome of the war could be anything but the result that it was. Interestingly the Union forces were over twice the size of the Confederacy yet they ended up taking nearly 60,000 more Battle deaths, 60,500 deaths due to disease and 101,149 more soldiers wounded.  Those southern lads really fought hard.
