Total Number of Civil War Navy and Marines
The navy and marines was an often overlooked contribution to the Union military,
and few ever recorded their service during and after the Civil War. But they served and died as valiantly as those who served
in the army. The medal of honor that many received from the navy also indicate their heroic and patriotic service
to our nation.
