engagement 87,64 men of all arms.
If, however, we undertake to construct a table of strength of his army after the method adopted by the critic of General Fitz. Lee's book, these numbers would be materially increased.
Treating all the engagements between the 14th and the 18th as one encounter, as does this critic, let us proceed to construct a statement, similar to his, of the strength of the Union army:
The return of that army for September 20th, 1862, shows an effective total of93,149
The Federal loss at Boonsborough and Sharpsburg, as officially reported, was14,794
The force at Harper's Ferry was about12,000
Total strength, by this method,119,943
We might thus contend that General Lee had 120,000 men opposed to him, which would bear to 57,000, the number of his army as made up by General Fitz. Lee's critic, about the same proportion as the less than 40,000 reported by General Lee, bears to the 87, 164 carried into action by General McClellan. Walter H. Taylor
