1 Hood reported, February 15, 1865, that his effective strength September 20th was 27,094 infantry, 10,543 cavalry, 2,766 artillery, and that he had sent 1,600 men to Mobile and Macon; total, 43,503, counting the militia at 1,500. As the effective total turned over to him July 18th was 48,750, he said, this showed a total loss of 5,247 men. But Hardee comments on this: ‘The casualties in my corps alone during that time considerably exceeded 7,000 in killed, wounded and captured.’ Hood estimated the loss under Johnston, including missing, at 22,750.
