Civial War, that was easy, it is the very first thing they tell you when you start the Civil War section in History "Over 500,000 troops died, more than any other war in American History." Then at the end they always say "And it was so bloody that the American People decided to never fight another Civil War." They say it like they are telling bed time story to a little kid too.

It also had the worst kill ratio ever: over 50.000 Americans to 0.

Sorry but Sharpsburg didn't make the top 10 although you're right there were a staggering 23,100 casualties.
The Battle of Antietam and the Battle of Sharpesburg are one and the same. The North tended to name the battles after landmarks (Like Antietam Creek) while the South tended to name the battles after the nearby towns or cities (Like the town of Sharpesburg).

IMHO the Civil War was the bloodiest AMERICAN war.

You're right Claymore, my mistake. While not the bloodiest battle, Sharpsburg/Antietam is counted as the bloodiest single day of the war.

Considering that there is a CORRECT answer to this one, why is it a poll? More Americans died in the Civil War than any other war in our history.

The way the question is phrased deals with the bloodiest war in US history , and hands down it would be the Civil war.

I think WW2 was. Although i dont know a loit about the CW. I thought that the reason was that there were more American casualties that died in the Civil War than in any other war. I thought WW2 would be because you have: America 8)
Britain
France............."Resistance"
Germany
Italy
Canada
Russia
Japan
I Dont know if there is more but...
I would think that WW2 would have the most casualties.Hmmmm. Maybe im wrong. Correct me if im wrong.
Yes, but we're talking about strictly US causalities.
