Civil War Reunions Serving in the Civil War was the defining period in the lives of most soldiers on both sides of the conflict. Not surprisingly, regimental reunions were held for many years afterwards. This is a photo of Confederate veterans meeting in McKinney, Texas sometime during the first decade of the twentieth century. The last major get-together took place in Gettysburg in 1938 where elderly veterans from both armies mingled. From all accounts, it was a moving sight.

Reunions of Union soldiers were generally called 'encampments.'

One of the, if not, the most bloodiest war in all our American history. Brothers against brothers.

The combined death total from both armies in the American Civil War was about 600,000--including those who died of disease. (A soldier was actually more likely to die of disease than to die of battle wounds.) The rest of America's wars combined haven't produced that many deaths of American soldiers. It was a brutal affair. Sometimes there was a 30% casualty rate in Civil War battles.
