Death By Sunstroke in the Civil War

I did a Yahoo! Search on deaths by sunstroke and came up with several different locations.

Most, including the Civil War Site,  list the deaths attributed to sunstroke at 313.  I'd never heard of that as cause for Civil War deaths before reading about George Cadman.

Of interest, other causes of death in Union ranks:

Murdered--  520
Suicides--  391
Military Executions--   267
Unclassified--  14, 155
