The only official statement of Grant's strength at Shiloh is on page 112, Vol. X., Official Records, which is compiled from division returns of April 4th and 5th, and shows (exclusive of two regiments and one battery not reported), an aggregate, “present for duty,” of 44,895. Included, however, in these figures are such non-combatants as medical officers, quartermasters, chaplains, musicians, hospital stewards, buglers, etc., etc. Deducting from the total above given the “present for duty” of Lew Wallace's division (7564), leaves 37,331 as the “present for duty” (combatant and non-combatant) in Grant's army on the morning of April 6th. The actual number of effectives is nowhere officially reported, nor do the Official Records afford any information as to the number of men brought by Buell to Grant's assistance. General Buell speaks in a general way of “25,000 reenforcements,” including “Lew Wallace's 5000.” General Grant says: “At Shiloh, the effective strength of the Union forces on the morning of the 6th was 33,000 men. Lew Wallace brought 5000 more after nightfall. . . . Excluding the troops who fled, panic-stricken, before they had fired a shot, there was not a time during the 6th when we had more than [539] 25,000 men in line. On the 7th Buell brought 20,000 more (Nelson's, Crittenden's, and McCook's divisions). Of his remaining two divisions Thomas's did not reach the field during the engagement; Wood's arrived before firing had ceased, but not in time to be of much service.” General M. F. Force, in From Fort Henry to Corinth (Charles Scribner's Sons), says: “The reinforcements of Monday numbered, of Buell's army about 25,000; Lew Wallace's 6500; other regiments about 1,400.” General Lew Wallace says in his report that his command “did not exceed 5000 men of all arms.”
