This is an interesting article about two guys who have been doing research on the number of Confederate dead during the war.  North Carolina has always claimed they had the most dead of any Confederate state.  However, this new reseach shows a lesser, though still significant, number actually died.

 Some interesting graphics and photos as well.

Thanks for the link! I quite enjoyed reading the comments... My mom always told me never to get in the midst of a group of fools arguing

Thoroughly interesting. I think it's minutiae like this that is the future of CW scholarship.
