Civil War Trivia


 
Burial sites of CSA Generals

Of the recognized 425 Generals of the CSA, 356 or 85% are buried in the eleven states of the confederacy. 46 are buried in border states, (KY, WV, OK, MD, MO). Of the remaining 23, 12 are in northern states, 4 are in CA, 4 are buried in Washington DC, and 3 are buried in foreign countries (one in Germany, two in Mexico).

Some of these men 'got around' after death. General Alexander Reynolds died, and was buried, in Alexandria, Egypt. A crypt still has a marker for him there, however no one knows if HE is there. A marker exists for him in TWO spots in the US, one in the churchyard of St. James the Less in Philadelphia, PA, and one in Old Stone Church graveyard in Lewisburg, WV. General Hugh Mercer died in Baden-Baden, and the records for the cemetery there show he is 'still' there (no dis-interrment records exist) but yet there is a stone marker for him in Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah also

There were six million cases of disease within the troops, meaning that, on average, each soldier
contracted at least two diseases.
