Much of the fighting was concentrated in the Greater Poland region, but some fights did occur inside of the Prussian Partition. The insurrection was ultimately unsuccessful for the Polish and resulted in many casualties on both sides. The Kingdom of Prussia had at least 500 deaths and over 640 Polish citizens were killed.
