Statistics of the Army That Put the Rebellion. t The enlistments in the union army during the civil war reached the enormous total of 2,898,304. It is not possible to know exactly how many enlistments there were in the confederate army, because the confederate states failed to keep a reliable record of the number of men furnished to the service, and such statistics as are to be had are incomplete. It is estimated, how ever, that there were between 600, 000 and 700,000 men in the con federate armies, and that fully 200,000 of this number died in bat tie or from wounds and disease.
