    MEMORIAL DAY 2020

    May 25.

    Americans who died in war and battle:

    American Revolution (1775-1783): 4,435
    War of 1812 (1812-1815): 2,260
    Indian Wars (1817-1898): 1,000 (estimate)
    Mexican War (1846-1848): 13,283
    Civil War (1861-1865): 620,000 (estimate)

    Approximately 620,000 soldiers died from combat, accident, starvation, and disease during the Civil War. This number comes from an 1889 study of the war performed by William F. Fox and Thomas Leonard Livermore. Both men fought for the Union. Their estimate is derived from an exhaustive study of the combat and casualty records generated by the armies over five years of fighting. A recent study puts the number of dead as high as 850,000.

    Spanish-American War (1898-1902): 2,446
    Great War (1917-1918): 116,516
    World War Two (1942-1945): 405,399
    Korean War (1950-1953): 54,246
    Vietnam War (1964-1975): 90,220
    Iran 1980: 8
    Lebanon (1982-1984): 265
    Grenada (1983): 19
    USS STARK (1987): 37
    Panama (1989): 23
    Gulf War (1990-1991): 383
    Somalia (1992-1994): 43
    Haiti (1994-1996): 4
    Global War on Terror (2011): 6,930

    Suicide/PTSD deaths average range from 4 to 22 deaths per day in American history.
