WBTS Factoid

In doing some recent online research, I came across this interesting factoid about Virginia Military Institute and the Civil War:

The latest research indicates that of the 1,973 alumni who were living at the beginning of the Civil War, 1,865 served (94.5%). Of those, 261 died (172 killed or mortally wounded in action, 89 from other causes while in service). Approximately 19 served in the Union Army.
