Close to Official: 34,000 North Carolina Deaths

From the Civil War Picket blog.

Close to official back in 2010, so probably official, or as near as it will ever be, by now, but the number of North Carolinians dying while in Confederate service is now at 34,000 out of the 134,000 who served.

For years the number was put at 40,000.

Bit there have been two recent studies,  one by Research Historian at the North Carolina Office of Archives and History and the other by Charles Purser of a Sons of Confederate Veterans camp in Garner.  Both show the number to be lower.
