In the return of the Army of Tennessee, printed July 10, 1864, opposite to “Hardee's corps,” in the column of remarks, is written: “One hundred and seven officers and two thousand and fifty-two men, prisoners of war, are reported among the ‘ absent without leave.’ ” And, opposite to “Hood's corps,” “two hundred and thirty-eight officers and four thousand five hundred and ninety-seven men, prisoners of war, are reported among the ‘ absent without leave.’ ” Below is written this explanation, in Major Falconer's handwriting: “The officers and soldiers reported ‘absent without leave,’ and who are ‘ prisoners of war,’ include all captured in the army in all previous engagements, and some of whom have hitherto been incorrectly reported ‘ absent without leave’ or ‘ absent.’ ”
