REGIMENTAL HISTORIES, STATISTICS AND
BATTLES !During the war, Michigan fielded 31
Regiments of INFANTRY,
11 Regiments of CAVALRY
14 Batteries of ARTILLERY,
Regiment of SHARPSHOOTERS and 1
Regiment of ENGINEERS.As the men who
volunteered exceeded Michigan's quotas, many men joined "UNITS IN OTHER STATES".
Of these 90,000 Michigan men who left their homes, farms, businesses and loved ones many were
to become one of 359,755 "DEATHS
BY STATES"statistic of the Union deaths in the Civil War. Thousands were to return
and disabled, 14,434 never to return at all, most of whom rest beneath a stone marked,
"UNKNOWN"; except,to the rest of their comrades, when they arrived at the final"BIVOUAC OF THE DEAD". I
have also included a chronological list of every
"BATTLE"of the Civil War
including casualties, and the Order of Battle for "The ARMY OF
POTOMAC" and "THE
ARMY OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA"
