    Three times as many as from coronavirus so far. But don't worry, Trump will get there.

    Source(s): 618,222 men died in the Civil War. Most of them fighting FOR slavery.

    Hard to say. In regards to the civil war; many people fought for different things. For example some Native Americans fought on the Confederate side because of their problems with the union regarding their rights. Slavery was not their concern but instead their own problems. Some people fought for states rights. Remember some of the casualties were Native Americans and Hispanic. So how many fought to end slavery, we'd have to ask each and every one of them. The civil war that is coming will also be many different people with different reasons.

    It's not certain -- somewhere between 600,000 and 700,000.  

    Remember that many of those people were actually fighting to RETAIN slavery, not end it, and some of the casualties were black soldiers.  You might look up the story of the 54th Massachusetts at Fort Wagner.

    But I doubt you will.  You've never struck me as remarkably bright, dear, or even quite compos mentis.
