no, the next milestone is WWII.  The WWII Memorial on the Wash. Mall 
says 384,000 military dead, IIRC, but Wiki says American deaths 
attributable to the war were 419,400.  The curves are diverging so 
wildly that I dare not hazard a guess when we'll hit that milestone.

The Civil War (aka The War of Northern Aggression aka The Late 
Unpleasantness) comes after that.
