Over 400 Confederate and 580 Union soldiers rose to the rank of general in the Civil War. Of them, more than one in ten would die, an astounding 124 in all - 78 for the South and 46 for the North. No matter how many times one reads of the exploits of these brave men, be they a private or a general, one is always humbled by their heroism.
