Hi, imagine that you have the power to place and replace army, corps and division commanders before the great offensive-minded period in the beginning of 1864. Armies had some rest and were gathering more troops, it's now time to decide who you would put in command.

Rules : Officers should still alive in March 1864 and they have to be in Western or Eastern theaters (no Magruder nor Kirby Smith for the South, no Curtis nor Steele for the North). Otherwise, try to respect a few seniority between officers and anything else is allowed (sorry, I'm concentrating on infantry commands, but cavalry and artillery are welcome !).

Here's my proposition, I hope several others would follow. Enjoy !

- 10th Corps : Gillmore / Terry as senior subordinate
- 18th Corps : Ord / Gibbon as senior subordinate

Army of West Virginia : Sheridan / Ricketts as second-in-command
- 8th Corps : Sheridan / Ricketts as senior subordinate

Army of the Tennessee : Sherman / Wallace as second-in-command
- 15th Corps : Logan / Osterhaus as senior subordinate
- 16th Corps (unified) : Wallace / McCook as senior subordinate
- 17th Corps : McPherson / Blair as senior subordinate

Army of the Cumberland : Thomas / Sigel as second-in-command

- 11th Corps : Sigel / Crittenden as senior subordinate

Naturally as it's me I'd say McClellan should have some job, but he's very senior - as a MG(R) he outranks almost everyone except Grant. However his real specialities are regular approaches and training.
It'd be interesting to contemplate putting him in charge of the Army of the James and giving him the AotP's mostly-unneeded siege train.


One caveat I'll note with the corps assignments you give the Army of the Potomac is that those corps aren't individually going to be very big. Historically the three infantry and one cavalry corps of the AotP that crossed the Rapidan were something like 120,000 men PFD in total (though they quickly suffered heavy casualties) but that was because they were formed from consolidating several smaller corps. That plus 9th Corps (here shown as part of the Army of the James) was what made the 142,500 man force Grant crossed the Rapidan with.

If what you're going to do is instead pump up the six corps so they're each about 24,000 strong, you've got about the strength for the Wilderness, but with 9th Corps on the James that means drawing on the troops Grant historically got as reinforcements before Cold Harbor (actually about half of them), which means that the Overland campaign is being conducted with ca. 20,000 fewer troops all told assuming the same amount of reinforcements. This might mean trouble. (If you give the Army of the Potomac all the historical reinforcements that they got from the north in one big lump sum, while taking 9th Corps away from them, it's about 170,000 men PFD; the cavalry's about 17,000 PFD, so the other five corps are about 30,000 PFD each and are corps in fact as well as in name.)


OTOH, if it means that it's McClellan on the James (with 9th Corps, the siege train, plus the historical strength of the active part of the Army of the James) then there's nearly 60,000 PFD with good siege artillery and a good commander at regular approaches pressuring Petersburg and/or Richmond. So it might come out as a good outcome, especially if Lee can't pull in many troops from the Petersburg area.)

Thanks for your reply, I'm not good with the numbers (plus there are PFD and effective troops, and agglomerates, and officers, and servants, and supply guards, etc. so many different interpretations and evaluations).

Concerning the Army of the James, it was indeed my goal to put a strongest force on the Peninsula to threaten Richmond and Petersburg with three Corps instead of two and with competent corps leaders to deal with the poor tactical skills provided by Butler.

I didn't think about McClellan because he was running for Presidency during the year. I can't remember when he resigned from the Army but I believed that it was too late for him to be put again in field command. Of course, if he was available, he would be more than a match in the role you assigned him for, by switching him with Butler and let him conducting an other Peninsula Campaign, as he wished to achieve in 1862. The fact is that a 45,000 - 50,000 three-corps army reaching Petersburg by the Peninsula would be more efficient than dealing with almost 15,000 to 18,000 less (the 9th Corps) to achieve the same goal.

My primary goal was to deal with each seniority and claim in the military structure. That's why I kept Butler because of political matters. Sigel is restored in command of his old 11th corps (his lack of skill can be balanced by his management and artillery abilites) and stays West to provide a reserve corps to Thomas. The federal troops in the Valley and in West Virginia (perhaps 24,000 troops) can be reduced to a single corps, the 8th, while excedents can be send to the Army of the Potomac. I chose to keep the five corps in this army because soldiers were proud to belong to this unit, that factor reinforced morale and cohesion ("esprit de corps"). I explained it in another thread "Building your own Army of the Potomac July 1863".

By keeping full pressure on Richmond with a reinforced Army of the James and a not so weak Army of the Potomac, the Army of Northern Virginia can't be spared of one entire corps to begin another Valley Campaign. This is why I've decided to restrain the units

In the West, the 20th and 21th had been merged in the 14th and the 4th, each two being composed by at least 18,000 men. Adding the 11th and 12th under the whole command of Thomas should bring some reorganization. These two corps alone can be filled with approximately 9,000 to 12,000 each. With transfert from the 14th and the 4th, I think the ideal number of 15,000 could be reach. The idea was to reach a balanced level of uniformity with each corps composed of three divisions (4,000 to 6,000 men each), numbering a 15,000-men force. This provides powerful subunits which could be detached for another duty or could be attached temporarily to another corps.

Concerning the Army of the Tennessee, I build it this way to keep two separate command under the supervision of Grant (Thomas on one side dealing with the Army of Tennessee and Sherman on the other dealing with Polk in Mississippi with the possibility to transfer another corps to Thomas). I just realized that I forgot to add 23rd Corps in my grand scheme, this unit should be filled in other corps to maintain a hign number of troops (I would say 9,000 men more for Sherman's three-army corps, plus one extra Cavalry Division for the Western Cavalry Corps commanded by Thomas). The loss of morale isn't so important because the 23rd was a unified command since short.

My second thoughts and your very precious comments lead me to this :

Full Commander : Grant
Chief of staff : Halleck

22nd Corps : Howard (Wadsworth as senior subordinate) = 3,000 infantry (provides much of its troops to active field units)

8th Corps : Sedgwick (Crook as senior subordinate) = 12,000 infantry + 3,000 cavalry

Army of the Potomac : Meade (Couch as second-in-command) = 75,000 infantry / 12,000 cavalry
- 1st Corps : Hancock (Doubleday as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 2nd Corps : Warren (Barlow as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 3rd Corps : Sickles (Birney as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 5th Corps : Couch (Sykes as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 6th Corps : Sheridan (Gibbon as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- Cavalry Corps : Wilson (Custer as senior subordinate) = 12,000 cavalry

Army of the James : McClellan (Burnside as second-in-command) = 45,000 infantry + Siege Artillery
- 9th Corps : Burnside (Parke as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 10th Corps : Gillmore (Terry as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 18th Corps : Wallace (McCook as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- Artillery Corps : Hunt = ? artillery

Army of the Tennessee : Sherman (Ord as second-in-command) = 36,000 infantry
- 15th Corps : Logan (Osterhaus as senior subordinate) = 12,000 infantry
- 16th Corps : Ord (Newton as senior subordinate) = 12,000 infantry
- 17th Corps : McPherson (Davis as senior subordinate) = 12,000 infantry

Army of the Cumberland : Thomas (Sigel as second-in-command) = 60,000 infantry + 9,000 cavalry
- 4th Corps : Granger (Wood as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 11th Corps : Sigel (Crittenden as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 12th Corps : Slocum (Williams as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- 14th Corps : Hooker (Ricketts as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry
- Cavalry Corps : Stoneman (Stanley as senior subordinate) = 9,000 cavalry

So it might come out as a good outcome, especially if Lee can't pull in many troops from the Petersburg area.)

Considering your comments on the lack of men to fill all this different corps, I have finally chosen to merge the 8th Corps (no real corps integrity nor military activity) with the 6th to make a average force in the Valley, with the same numbers, this allowing a few extra troops to be reversed in the Army of the Potomac. This doesn't affect the Western theater anyway.

EASTERN THEATER

Army of West Virginia : Sedgwick (Sheridan as second-in-command)
- 6th/8th Corps : Sheridan (Gibbon as senior subordinate) = 15,000 infantry

Army of the Potomac : Meade (Couch as second-in-command) = 72,000 infantry + 15,000 cavalry
- 1st Corps : Hancock (Doubleday as senior subordinate) = 18,000 infantry
- 2nd Corps : Warren (Barlow as senior subordinate) = 18,000 infantry
- 3rd Corps : Sickles (Birney as senior subordinate) = 18,000 infantry
- 5th Corps : Couch (Sykes as senior subordinate) = 18,000 infantry
- Cavalry Corps : Wilson (Crook as senior subordinate) = 15,000 cavalry

He'd have been an option. He resigned on the day of the election itself, and the convention that nominated him wasn't until August 29-31.

Considering that Grant was also up for a major party nomination, I don't think it's a deal breaker by himself.

Thanks for your reply, I'm not good with the numbers (plus there are PFD and effective troops, and agglomerates, and officers, and servants, and supply guards, etc. so many different interpretations and evaluations).

Yes, I know his blog, very well documented. I should make some preparation before starting my composition with inclusion of numbers.

As I understand it, most of the other commands used regulation PFD. You could also use this:
https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.b2979871&view=1up&seq=15Which is all regulation PFD as I understand it.

My wish is to find the number of soldiers who can be used in battle ("muskets"), while PFD assemble many non-combattant troops, as I understand it. However, thanks for the tip, I would check it and perhaps make a reduction by 0.6 % or 0.75 % to reach a rational number.

Honestly, you're going to have a hell of a time finding Effective Strength (which is what you're after) for all forces, though you could make an estimate by multiplying by 75%. The problem is that they vary so much - Sherman complained that when he took over half the force was non-combat-effective, and he never quite reduced it down.

What you could do however is delve into the hospital records. Those and the linked statement are probably the only two places you'll get any consistent measure of strength below Aggregate Present for the Union.

AP and AP&A are consistent because they represent categories that didn't change much throughout the war. At least one Union army changed their reporting of PFD to be non-regulation - that's the Army of the Potomac - which is why the May 1 1864 numbers for regulation PFD army wide are so useful.
The non-sick list is also consistent.

Loring hadn't worked out for Lee, and Lee had gotten rid of him. So I would put A. P. Hill back at the head of the 3rd corps. Early leading the 2nd corps, and give John B Gordon Early's division.
I think Loring deserves a corps command, probably commanding the troops around Richmond, or maybe back in the Valley district, in Breckenridge's place
I don't think promoting Gordon at this time would be sensible. He had seen little prominent action at brigade command aside from Gettysburg. It was his bold flanking action which had brought him his laurels. And even then, Lee had to reorg the division because he was promoting him over superior officers.
While I myself am a Gordon fanatic, I will admit, I'd love to put him at the head of 2nd Corps, but he had not shown himself to be the brilliant field commander until the Overland Campaign.

**This number came from Craig L. Symonds' "Stonewall of the West: Patrick Cleburne & The Civil War", pg. 219. "When the spring campaign had begun, Cleburne reported a total of 5,218 effectives in his command..."
***The abstract report of 31st October 1864 shows the division numbered 6892 men. This is in the division's historical configuration, and also is well into the siege of Petersburg. If a better breakdown could be found, I would love to see it: http://www.beyondthecrater.com/reso...ate-oobs/anv-nafziger/864jba-anv-31-oct-1864/.
****Vague estimate by Albert Castel, Decision in the West.
I would love to find more numbers to better round out my list. Also expect to expand upon other departments and theaters.

So, looking at my old OoB's, with numbers from John Tiller's Atlanta Campaign game, I think these numbers would be as close as correct as I can discern:
Army of Tennessee: LtG Longstreet

-2nd Corps: MG A. P. Stewart (15774)
--1st Division: MG W. H. T. Walker (5248)
---1st Brigade: BG Gist (SC/GA) (2061)
---2nd Brigade: Col. G. A. Smith (GA) (1885)
---3rd Brigade: BG J. K. Jackson (GA) (1302)
--2nd Division: BG Clayton (4911)
---1st Brigade: Col. Holtzclaw (AL/GA) (1546)
---2nd Brigade: BG Baker/BG Stovall (AL/GA) (1450)
---3rd Brigade: BG Gibson (LA) (1915)

---1st Brigade: BG Ector (TX/NC) (1677)
---2nd Brigade: BG Cockrell (MO) (1190)

---3rd Brigade: BG Quarles (AL/LA/TN) (1461)

-1st Cavalry Corps: MG Joe Wheeler (6356*)
--1st Division: MG Martin (3159)
---1st Brigade: BG Iverson (GA) (862)
---2nd Brigade: BG Allen (AL) (1019)
---3rd Brigade: Col. Robert H. Anderson (GA/AL) (1278)
--2nd Division: BG John Kelly (3197)
---1st Brigade: Col. Ashby (TN) (750)
---2nd Brigade: Col. Grigsby (KY) (789)
---3rd Brigade: BG Harrison (AK/TN/TX) (750)

--1st Division: BG W. H. Jackson (1775)
---1st Brigade: BG F. Armstrong (MS) (1018)

---1st Brigade: BG Wirt Adams (MS) (1425)
---2nd Brigade: BG Benjamin Hill (AL/MS/TN) (1425)

-Artillery Corps: BG Francis Shoup (3227)

*The cavalry is not well represented in the Atlanta Campaign pack. Martin's Division (Iverson's and Allen's Brigades), Grigsby's Brigade, and W. H. Jackson's divisions show up in game, though some regiments are missing. The numbers for Chalmer's Division are derived from JT's Franklin-Nashville Campaign. The rest are speculation based on average regiment strength across the known units.

@Gavrilo Sartorys Question about this thread: how far am I allowed to go in regard to recruitables? Was thinking of implementing the Cleburne Proposal and assigning C.S.C.T. formations

You can indeed assume that Bobby Lee, Ewell and others could put some pressure on Davis and military authorities to allow incorporation of C.S.C.T. with a fixed number provided by each state. Governors will have to provide these troops if they want to keep his own state militia to defend their country (a kind of ultimatum addressed to them).

Meanwhile, do as you want, and take in account that it could make Cleburne's promotion to Lieutenant-Generalcy possible (if Hood or an other Corps commander shows lack of effectiveness during Atlanta Campaign).

Alright, in which case, time for some add ons:

So, average regimental strength would be around 620 men, just a random number but I feel that its fair, as much of this manpower pool is untapped.
Using officers who either historically supported the idea (Col. Leon von Zinken; BG John Kelly and other signators of Cleburne's Memorial), or have been disgraced and can be promoted back to command a brigade (Ltc. John C. Moore and Ltc. John Pemberton).
Most of these units may not be operational until May; However, once they are formed, they can provide service either in rear areas (Defending Richmond, the Carolinas, and Mobile) or on the front lines (Georgia)

So, with that in mind, I would make the following brigades:
-1st Division (Assigned to AoT): BG John Kelly
--1st Brigade: Col. Leon von Zinken (GA) (3 Regiments; 1860)
--2nd Brigade: Col. John C. Moore (AL) (4 Regiments; 2480)
--3rd Brigade: Col. John E. Murray (GA/TN) (3 GA Regiments + 2 half strength TN Regiments; 2480)
--4th Brigade: Col. Henry Maury (AL) (4 Regiments; (2480)
-2nd Division: BG Micah Jenkins
--1st Brigade: Col. J. C. Pemberton (VA) (5 Regiments; 3100)
--2nd Brigade: Col. Bolivar Gee (GA) (4 Regiments; 2480)
--3rd Brigade: Col. Thomas G. Lee (NC) (4 Regiments; 2480)
--4th Brigade: Col. Frank Armistead (NC) (4 Regiments; 2480)
--5th Brigade: BG S. Elliott (SC) (5 Regiments; 3100)
--1st FL C.S.C.T. Regiment: (310)
This gives a total of 23150 more troops in the field, with more to come. One big issue is finding more white officers. Presumably, some white units will need to be disbanded (maybe militias, reserve and rear department units) so the white men could be promoted and made to command new black regiments.

So, now, lets set up new OoB:
Army of Northern Virginia: General R. E. Lee (72225)

Ewell appears twice in your OOB, first at the head of 2nd Corps, ANV, second at the head of 1st Corps, ASV. I think you had in mind Early for the 2nd Corps, ANV. Just noticing.
Fixed in edit. Thank you for spotting. Swapped out for Early (commanding 3rd Corps) to command 2nd Corp, while R. H. Anderson commands 3rd Corps.
