I remember about 2-3 years ago I came across this website which had collected a bunch of unit reports for the siege of Petersburg, and had a list of troop strengths over time that was very helpful. I can't find it anymore and I believe it has just been deleted or lost.
Anyways, the meat and bones of what I want to get at is those brigade strength tables. I asked before about the Confederate numbers in the Overland Campaign, where people linked pages from Albert Young's book on that particular subject. If anyone has any information, or places where I can find this, I would love to hear it.

Note: If you are pointing me towards the OR I would prefer to be given some specific citations. I have been directed towards them before without a citation and was unable to find what that person was pointing me too because he would not give me specifics.

Edit: Link to the Overland Campaign thread I refer toohttps://civilwartalk.com/threads/confederate-unit-strengths-in-the-overland-campaign-army-corps-division-and-or-brigade.155605/

Beyond the Crater was the site that had the Petershurg info. I have not been on it lately but might still have his info somewhere. Schulte was his last name. Forgot his first.

Presume your refering to stuff like this? http://www.beyondthecrater.com/resources/oob/nafziger-petersburg-siege-oobs/confederate-oobs/anv-nafziger/864iad-anv-10-sept-1864/

Because this is nice and all but...the breakdowns I found went down to brigade level, rather than the division.

Several new books are out on Petersburg, I will need to find notes on one that was referred to me. You might be able to contact that author who then might point you in a better direction. Or contact beyond the crater and see if he has info that he did not post. I have not talked to him in years so I'm not sure what else he has.

The Final Battle of the Petersburg Campaign: Breaking the Backbone of the Rebellion . This is the newest book referred to me . The second edition had some changes and was the one suggested. It's on Amazon.

This is an excellent book, but the author has recently published another one called A Campaign of Giants, which is to be the first of a trilogy. I haven't read it yet but my guess is that it is as thorough and good as the one you mentioned.

Thanks, I will have to check that out.
Phil Hatfield will have one out soon dealing with a WVa unit and Petersburg but I forget the title now. It's in peer review now I believe. He has published on Anse Hatfield and the CW and how the NC Militaria helped start the war. All on Amazon.
