It's common sense that the male populations of many states were greatly affected by the Civil War. More than 600,000 soldiers died collectively on both sides of that war.

This week, Slate magazine published an 1870 map that showed the gender differences of the nation five years after the war. Alabama, as the map clearly shows, was majority female, as was a great portion of the former Confederacy.

Alabama's population in 2012 was 51.5 percent female, Census data show.
