After the end of the Civil War, scholars began to compile facts and figures as a way to help grasp the scope and cost of the bloody four year struggle. Exact numbers have been impossible to ascertain in many instances, but over the years historians have come to agree on general estimates:



There were more than 10,000 battles, engagements, skirmishes, and other military events. In descending order, the number in each state were recorded as follows:

Virginia 2,154Kentucky 453
Tennessee 1,462Alabama 336
Missouri 1,162N.Carolina 313
Arkansas 771S.Carolina 239
W.Virginia 632Maryland 203
Louisiana 566Florida 168
Georgia 549

All other states and territories saw much less action than Florida, and many states had no military conflict.
