AMERICAN WAR DEATH THROUGH HISTORY

.

American War Deaths Through HistoryFrom Independence Day to Iraqi Freedom.
.
The above is a listing of US casualties in the various conflicts that have been a part of the country's history. The above numbers reflect only reported war deaths and exclude those wounded and/or missing. The Civil War still maintains the highest American casualty total of any conflict. Interesting to note the staggering number of losses in World War 2 when compared to that of World War 1 - the former being the so-called "War to End All Wars". Then there's the "Forgotten War" in Korea - this nickname despite the near-37,000 reported casualties in the conflict.
.
In it's first 100 years of existence, over 683,000 Americans lost their lives, with the Civil War accounting for 623,026 of that total (91.2%). Comparatively, in the next 100 years, a further 626,000 Americans died through two grand World Wars and several more localized conflicts (World War 2 representing 65% of that total). Using this comparison, the Civil War might very well be the most important war that America has ever fought.
.
To date, over 1,314,000 Americans have died when answering The Call at all four corners of the world. How about casualties? In Iraq alone more than 38,000 were wounded and thousands commited suicides for no reason. The ratio of death against casualties is roughly 1: 100. If this is the case, than the number of wounded come up to more than 100,000,000 Americans lives. How many do you think the death of other nationals murdered by the American? It could be 1.5 billion throughout the world or even more!.
