FoxNews: New info can change history books. NC has had held the (disturbing) honor of the most killed in the Civil war, and Virginia held 4th place. But new information is calling the two states even, but the numbers are still be reviewed. So, VA vs NC, who lost more in the Civil war is to be determined.
Civil War buffs do not see a point in taking a new head count, yet NC has “proudly” claimed they had the most losses. So it seems it does, and will matter to them.
All in all, I don’t think this can ever be 100% confirmed either way, since not every one was in uniform, and many other reasons.
