North Carolina Civil War military atlas and demography study
Listening to the latest CWTR program, I was interested to hear of Josh Howard's project (with Mark Moore) to create a Sesquicentennial inspired North Carolina campaign and battle atlas accompanied by a statistical analysis of the demographic material compiled by the team currently at work (re)counting the numbers of Tar Heel dead. They are currently in talks with University of North Carolina Press to published the study. According to Howard, the current death total stands at more than 32,000 and he expects it to reach a figure in the area of 35,000 by the time the project is completed.
