American War History at a Glance

The United States has faced many wars. We’ve seen some of our brave soldiers return home in good health, some come home with physical or mental injuries, and some never return at all—lost to threats we’ll never know. Whatever the situation, each veteran who serves honorably is forever changed.

Veterans Day is a day dedicated to remembering those who have sacrificed so much on behalf of our great country. It’s a day where we should all take the time to express gratitude for the men and women who have served.

We hope the infographic below helps you remember our veterans on this special day—or any day, really. We at Low VA Rates encourage you to make plans to do something for a veteran, whether that’s donating to an organization that focuses on those who have served or just making a veteran smile.

Let us know what you think in the comments!

  1. Typo on the Mexican war, it says the Colonists fought Great Britain again. 🙂

    Another data point that would be hard to quantify would be the impact on American freedom or what we’d lose if we lost the war versus what we gave up to fight the war.

  2. Thank you for this infographic. It is very eye-opening. One way we can celebrate the great sacrifices of soldiers is to listen to their stories of bravery and hardship that earned our freedom in this country. So many of the WWII soldiers have already passed away, and we must record what we can before they are all gone. We are gathering these stories, free of charge, for a future blog post on our site, and we even have professional writers who can interview someone who wants to tell their story and write it for future generations.

  3. In my opinion there were only 2 Just Wars in American history. Our Civil War and WW2. The others came about from either avarice, ignorance, fear, and always misguided politics.

  4. the number of deaths in the American Civil War does not make it clear if you are referring to all Americans (both Union and Confederacy) or just Union. Also the World War 2 section only refers to US vs. Nazi Germany and does not mention the war with Japan at all. Huge omissions!

  5. It’s impossible to estimate the emotional and potential losses of war because no one knows what would have happened if people reasoned out agreements. But thank you for the analysis of facts. What would 4 billion Civil War dollars be equivalent to today’s currency?

  6. Typo on Mexican War, there was also more Americans killed in both sides during Civil War. USA also fought against Japan in WW2.

  7. The list missed the Philippine-American war.. it was after the treaty of Paris with Spain. U.S. against the 1st Philippine Republic.

  8. Typical US attitude, in all those wars from WW1 onwards, theUS was not the only one fighting against Germany etc. You forget that Countries like UK and Australia were involved long before you got involved.

  9. Then we have the wars the USA funded BOTH SIDES AND CAUSED IN THE FIRST PLACE because they wanted to stimulate the economy. WW2 was caused by the USA, funded by Wall Street (American Jew headed companies) who recruited Hitler to lead the German army, Bowing made the planes for Germany, A.G. Farbin (manufacturers of Bayer asperin) produced the fozgin used in the gas chambers – ALL USA COMPANIES – and they all made tons of $$$$$ by supplying both sides. NONE of they tried for war crime. Then we have the Catholic church soliciting the support of the Muslims to betray the Jews. What none of them saw was what a good job the Germans would do with their war machine.

    Of course history doesn’t tell the truth about who actually started the war or who the supporters were who made so much money on it and walked away with the blood of thousands of men on their hands. AND we have a lot of people including people on this blog who don’t have any idea who or what actually happened. My own father was a victim of the lies and traitors who caused and funded the war.

    If history told the truth about so many of the wars and diseases that befall us, there likely would be some massive changes in the financial arena.

    The current world wide pandemic in most likely germ warfare done in the USA, manufacturing done in China that got away from them and the Chinese are being blamed for the pandemic. Granted they have done a lot of bad stuff, but they may well not the fully responsible for this one, much to the surprise of people world wide.
