1st Maine - 174
1st Michigan - 164
39th Indiana ("8th Cavalry") - 148
5th Michigan - 141
6th Michigan - 135
1st Vermont - 134
1st New York Dragoons (19th New York Cavalry) - 130
1st New Jersey - 128
2nd New York - 121
11th Pennsylvania - 119
8th New York - 105
10th New York - 102

There were more than a few dead troopers. Before you laugh it helps to know what you're talking about.
