Battle Of The Wilderness

Fighting in a forest, the trees were dry and caught on fire very easily. Many men died because they were injured, got left behind, and died in the fire. The fog was worse than the fire because many men got killed by their own men out of pure confusion.

  • Grant had 2,246 deaths, 12,037 wounded, and 3,383 missing people for a total of 17,666 casualties.

  • Lee lost 7,500 men.
