It's a tragedy - I thought the war was over.

Is it possible that entries 48 through 55 in the per capita recruitment list are too small by a factor of 10?
First of all, there's a huge proportional gap between entries 54 and 55 that doesn't exist anywhere else in the table.
Secondly, it would just surprise me a whole lot if the recruitment rates for the Carolinas and Mississippi were drastically different from those of Virginia, Georgia and Alabama. If the numbers for Carolinas and Mississippi are multiplied by 10, they fit in perfectly with other southern states.
You could make similar arguments about Ohio and Michigan relative to Wisconsin and Indiana, or California and Utah relative to Nevada.
