After more than ten years of research, Randolph Withers Kirkland, Jr. has completed what is destined to be a major research tool on the American Civil War. It compiles the records of more than 18,500 soldiers, sailors, and other South Carolina citizens who gave their lives to the Confederate States of America and to the state of South Carolina. About half of these died of disease or in prison, slightly less than half died in action, and less than two percent died of other causes. Included in these records are the individuals' names, ages, ranks, units, home districts, places and causes of death, and more. To gather this information, the author has consulted more than 200 sources of information and has corrected much inaccurate information that has been printed in other sources. The information here compiled offers invaluable data for Civil War researchers, genealogists, local historians, and others. It is the most complete record ever published of South Carolinians who died in service to the Confederacy.
