General Thomas reported that the losses of his army in the entire campaign did not exceed 10,000 in killed, wounded, and missing. According to official returns the effective force of Thomas's whole command was as follows: October 31st, 53,415; November 20th, 59,534; November 30th, 71,452; December 10th, 70,272. In his official report, General Thomas says that his effective force early in November “consisted of the Fourth Corps, about 12,000, under General D. S. Stanley; the Twenty-third Corps, about 10,000, under General J. M. Schofield; Hatch's division of cavalry, about 4000; Croxton's brigade, 2500, and Capron's brigade of about 1200 [total, 29,700]. The balance of my force was distributed along the railroad, and posted at Murfreesboro‘, Stevenson, Bridgeport, Huntsville, Decatur, and Chattanooga, to keep open our communications and hold the posts above named, if attacked, until they could be reeinforced, as up to this time it was impossible to determine which course Hood would take — advance on Nashville, or turn toward Huntsville.” It is estimated that the available Union force of all arms in and about Nashville on December 15th aggregated at least 55,000. Col. Henry Stone, of General Thomas's staff, furnishes the following estimate of the number of Union troops actually engaged in the battle (not including the garrison force and dismounted cavalry), viz.: Fourth Corps, 13,350; Twenty-third Corps, 8880; Detachment Army of the Tennessee, 9210; Steedman's Detachment, 5270; Cavalry Corps (mounted men), 6600, or an aggregate, including artilery, of 43,260. General J. H. Wilson says the cavalry numbered 12,000.

At the time of the battle of Nashville, Forrest, with Jackson's and Buford's divisions of cavalry and Mercer's and Palmer's brigades of infantry, was detached from the main army and operating on its flanks. Hood reported that he began the campaign with “an ‘effective total’ of 40,403.” On November 6th his strength was 44,729. By the arrival of Forrest's cavalry, on November 15th, the army aggregated 53,938. Exclusive of Palmer's brigade of Lee's corps, Mercer's brigade of Cheatham's corps, and Sears's and Cockrell's brigades of Stewart's corps, and Forrest's cavalry (not included in Hood's return), the “present for duty” on December 10th was 26,877. These omitted commands probably numbered 12,000, which would give Hood an aggregate effective force at that date of nearly 39,000. But Col. Henry Stone estimates that Hood's army at Nashville numbered 37,937, including some who were reported as on “extra duty,” but who he (Stone) claims were with their commands, and (Hood being on the defensive) were, as occasion required, put in the ranks to fight. According to Hood's official report his loss at Franklin in killed, wounded, and prisoners was 4500. The loss at Nashville is not stated. He reached Tupelo, at the close of the campaign, with about 21,000. General Hood reported officially: “Losses, including prisoners, during the entire campaign do not exceed 10,000 men.” On the other hand, General Thomas states in his official report that during the campaign he “captured 13,189 prisoners of war,” and that “during the same period over 2000 deserters from the enemy were received.” [475]
