Possible Erroneous Stats?
I was reading the main article "The Butcher's Bill" and its table on page 42. I'm not much of a stats guy, but there seems to be a lot of errors. I actually think you swapped the sides. In Robert E Lee's by the numbers I know the Union lost about 12,000 men not the Confederates at Fredericksburg. I also think you shouldn't add the captured total. Adding the whole Confederate army in the Appomattox Campaign as captured kinda pads the totals and doesn't make Lee a butcher.
