Confederate Casualty Reports

Confederate Casualty Reports

TOPIC

Lists of killed, wounded, and missing soldiers, together with narrative reports of the action, submitted after battles.

Description

    The documents in this publication were originally created in accordance with Confederate Army Regulations, which provided that after each engagement the participating units would submit to the Office of the Adjutant and Inspector General a return of the killed, wounded, and missing, together with narrative reports of the action. These returns and narrative reports enabled the Confederacy to keep informed of the condition and strength of its forces.

    Parts of the description on this page were taken directly from NARA's descriptive pamphlet for M836, Confederate States Army Casualties: Lists and Narrative Reports 1861-1865, written by David Gibson and published in 1971.
