In the little news montage at the start of AOE one newswoman says "over thirteen-hundred dead". I get that this probably isn't a final number since it would take a damn long time to find and confirm every death in the Battle of Chicago. But 1300? Maybe a hundred times that minimum. So much got wrecked and later on we don't even see any civilians at all so 1300 is pretty laughable. Was it some kind of attempt to not make things seem too dark? I don't know.
