This chapter describes the Union and Confederate casualties. The Union had a total of 12,653 casualties: 1,284 dead, 9,600 wounded, and 1,769 captured or missing. The Confederates had also paid a high price: 595 killed, 4,061 wounded, 653 captured or missing, for a total of 5,309 casualties. But comprehending the losses beyond the cold statistics meant listening to soldiers discussing the casualties in the camps and hearing the news filter back to thousands of homes.
