Pausing to Remember...

The war that produced the most casualties? The American Civil War.

Wars by combat deaths? #1 World War 2 #2 American Civil War

Total American war deaths, going back to the Northwest Indian Wars - 622,760

Cities with similar populations - Zaragosa, Spain; Glasgow, Scotland, Mexicali, Mexico

Please, a quiet word of thanks to all of those souls who fought for what we so frequently flaunt today...
