Counting the Civil War Dead

Josh  Howard May 13, 2011

Josh Howard, Research Historian for the Office of Archives and History, part of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources, talks with Gery to discuss his current project of counting the dead of North Carolinian's who fought in the Civil War. The research will be used to provide statistics for an upcoming "North Carolina Civil War Atlas."

Gerry's Monologue -
"This is Gerry Prokopowicz, with Civil War Talk Radio,...

"...first at Bethel, farthest at Gettysburg and Chickamauga, last at Appomattox, that's North Carolina's proud recital of its record as a member of the Confederacy. Even more telling, North Carolina has long claimed the gory distinction of having suffered more soldiers killed in the war than any other Confederate state. Exactly how many were killed? No one has ever known, until now. Historian Joshua Howard of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources has been counting them carefully, one by one. And the results may not be what partisan of the old North State were looking for. We'll talk about numbers and history with Josh Howard today on Civil War Talk Radio."
