America's Bloodiest War: 1861-1865. The economic and social devastation wrought by four years of Civil Was was immense, and the effects long lasting. America's bloodiest conflict cost nearly 1,100,000 casualties and claimed more than 620,000 lives. The campaigning armies left destruction in their wake, particularly in the Southern states that bore the brunt of the fighting. Best estimates place the total numbr of wartime clashes in excess of 10,000, many of them large-scale encounters that resulted in staggering losses for both sides. Engagements such as Gettysburg, Shiloh, the Wilderness and Chickamauga are ranked among the great battles of history; they bear witness to the courage and tenacity with which the Union and Confederate soldiers fought for their beliefs. Here is the overall Index for the highly illustrated, multi-volume set published by Time-Life on the United States Civil War.
