Civil War Trivia

So impressed was Union Col. John T. Wilder by the new Spencer repeating rifles that, when the War Department refused to issue them to his troops, he convinced the men of his command to pledge $35 apiece, stood surety for a note to cover the costs, and went out and bought several thousand, so that his brigade became the first in history to be completely equipped with repeaters, with devastating effect in action.

There were six million cases of disease within the troops, meaning that, on average, each soldier
contracted at least two diseases.
