Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the definition, scope, and functioning of disease environments. It combines both individual- and aggregate-level data and attempts to specify several of the correlates of disease mortality at a fine level of detail. An investigation of the incidence and timing of disease mortality among Union Army enlisted men in companies from New York state is placed in the context of a parallel study of mortality of regiments and other units of army volunteers that were organized in the Empire State.

Keywords: disease mortality; Union Army; enlisted men; army volunteers
