Changing Figures

Scholars have been saying for that past decade that the death tolls from the Civil War, America’s most destructive war, are actually far higher than previously figured. They are saying that the commonly accepted number of 620,000 deaths should be more like 750,000…how do you think this will effect future Civil War research?

This article,from Emerging Civil War, discusses all this. http://emergingcivilwar.com/2012/04/16/what-do-130000-deaths-mean/
