Perryville Causalties


The following is a list of Causalities for the Battle of Perryville.  The following were copied from the Compiled Service Records for the 1st Tennessee and an article from the Chattanooga Daily Rebel.  Colonel Feild recorded 181 causalities, but I have found 188 with official documentation on their war record that they were a causality.  Updates will always be coming.  In some cases the same rank is listed for two men in the same company, this is what their record claims their rank was at the time of their wound or death.  In some cases two different dates of death are recorded.  The Federals had most of the wounded in their custody after the battle and they recorded the day the soldier died.  In some cases the Confederates recorded a different date of death.  Federal records have proven to be more accurate and they had custody of the mortally wounded, so the day they recorded as the death has been listed.
