Rode's Fallen Alabamians

While we study the war, its battles, the strategies and tactics used, the weaponry, and the home front, we really don't look at the casualty lists as a reminder of what this war cost. Over the next few months and whenever i get a chance, I am going to compile as complete a casualty listing as I possibly can with the resources available to me. I feel that the best way to remember the casualties is by putting names to the numbers. We can say that here at South Mountain, both sides lost a combined 6,000 men but by putting names to the numbers, I feel the battle becomes more personal. It becomes more real when you know who these men were and what price they paid. My first installment of this project is that of Brigadier General Robert Rodes. Rodes men deployed and held the Pennsylvania Reserves under George Meade at bay for nearly three hours before Union numbers forced them to break. The casualty figures are for four of Rode's regiments. The 3rd Alabama has no records that I am readily aware or are readily available to me for this list.
