The Civil War- Missing Soldiers Office-Clara Barton
Soldiers did not wear dog tags or have any system of personal records. Hundreds of thousand of bodies remained unidentified, leaving families with no knowledge of how their loved one died, or where they might be buried. When officials did attempt identification, it was often unreliable, resulting in live soldiers being recorded as deceased and dead soldiers being marked as only slightly wounded. By World War I, soldiers were wearing official id badges.
There was no official system for notifying next of kin. If a body was identified, a fellow soldier might take it upon himself to write to the family of the deceased explaining how their loved one died and offering words of condolence. In the spring of 1865, Clara Barton established the Missing Soldiers Office in Washington, D.C. Her organization eventually helped provide information for about 22,000 soldiers who would have otherwise remained unknown.
During the Civil War, Miss Clara Barton was active in a number of humanitarian efforts. Clara assisted families by learning the fate of their loved ones lost in the massive military records system. Many of these soldiers were prisoners, killed in action and/or not recorded as being admitted to a hospital. Her office answered over 63,000 letters between 1865 and 1868. Her efforts were the first to identify soldiers missing in action; a legacy that survives to this day. This changed the disposition of over 22,000 missing soldiers. Although she is primarily known for her work as a nurse, she could also be found collecting and distributing medical supplies, as well as lobbying politicians and the army for better conditions for soldiers.

what each nation provides in the war (for their allies):
an army for the war: Aries // Sagittarius
supplies and money: Leo // Capricorn
nurses and caretakers: Cancer // Taurus
a strategy for battle: Virgo // Gemini & Scorpio
a reason to fight: Aquarius & Pisces // Libra
the outcome of the war:
after much hardship, the nations of Aries and Sagittarius exhausted the men and women fighting in the war. their strength was matched. in addition, the people of Leo and Capricorn were getting annoyed with and tired of using their talents, labor, and hard-earned money for the war that just dragged on.
Cancer and Taurus had seen much strife and were tired of the war. the leaders of Cancer and Taurus convinced Aquarius, Pisces, and Libra that the war was no longer worth fighting. after the morale of the men and women fighting was gone due to the strong words of the leaders of Aquarius, Pisces, and Libra, the strategists Virgo, Gemini, and Scorpio decided that it would be beneficial to both sides to come up with a compromise instead of continuing the violence. both sides agreed, and a good solution was met.
