Among the 5,000 Union casualties were one general killed and three wounded. The casualty rate for the Confederates was high: about 4,000 of 15,500. Two Confederate generals were killed and four were wounded. A nice variety of relics from a historic Civil War battle.  Housed in 6 x 9 inch wood hinged box.
