Kinda my point, and i had been looking for that exact info. The first corps was the only one of the three corps that was really below its Gettysburg numbers and alot of that had to do with the fact it fought much more intensely throughout the fall of 1863, not giving itself a chance to recover. I think the division and brigade commanders goight extremely well at the Wilderness. Hills decision not to entrench was the one major gaffe in the army really during that battle. But when you couple the losses at Wilderness with the constant fighting and losses at Spotsylvania, and the fact Lee was given a chance to replenish his forces and his edge began to falter after that, but that's also a two edged sword. The AoP also was losing its offensive edge as well.
