Civil War Humor 1861-1865

 

The Civil War was the costliest war in American history. Some 600,000 people died. As a percentage of population this would be equivalent to five million deaths in present day America. Despite the horrors of war, or maybe because of them, humor still had a place in American life. Abraham Lincoln best summed up the role of humor in the war when he said, “With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die.”

A brief but fascinating look at humor in the Civil War including: (1) Stories Around the Campfire, (2) Parody, (3) the Irish, (4) Humorous Incidents, (5) Civil War Humorists, and (6) Lincoln.

  In the 1860 Census, the U.S. population was about 31.4 million. Today, that number is almost exactly ten times as many.

US & World Population Clock

  The most widely accepted figure for deaths during the Civil War was 620,000. Thus, the equivalent number of deaths relative to today's population would be over six million.

Recently I have read that total death figures for the war have been revised upwards by a number of historians... the figure I hear now is approx 750,000.. more or less

Bama-

  Similarly, some historians have over the years increased estimates of the number of deaths that took place during World War II. This has been a gradual process.

  The: "Conventional wisdom" regarding Civil War deaths has been in the range of 620,000 it seems for some time. A figure of 750,000 would represent over a 20% increase. Thats a significant difference. We'll see if a consensus will eventually increase the generally accepted figure. At any rate, the precise number can never be known.
