Overland campaign 1864

Just looking at some figures concerning casualties,
General Lee holds a pretty even number of combat soldiers
verses the number of losses he has. Now I am sure there
are some differing figures as these came from the battle report
on Wikipedia. But I do find this interesting.

Wilderness total engaged 61,000
total casualties 11,000

Spotsylvania total engaged 52,000
total casualties 13,421

North Anna total engaged 53,000
total casualties 2,517

Cold Harbor total engaged 59,000
total casualties 4,595

Lee's army ends up with practically the same number of combatants as he did at the beginning of the overland campaign.

Throughout the Overland Campaign, and especially after Spotsylvania, Lee was regularly reenforced by men from the Richmond/Petersburg defenses (Hoke/Pickett) as well as the Valley (Breckenridge).

In fact, Petersburg should have been taken relatively easily on two separate occasions because most of the manpower had gone to Lee north of the James.

Marsh, poor old Confederate army towards the end reminds me of the Volksturm and the fall of Berlin.. filling the ranks with people who would normally be exempt from service.
