Key:
Artillery listings, in green, are in the following format:

(<number guns>x<gun size> gun type)

S = Smoothbore
H = Howitzer
JR = James Rifles
WR = Wiard Rifles
PR = Parrott Rifles
SG = Siege Guns

Leader status listings, in red are used in the following way:

w = Wounded
w-mortally = Mortally wounded
k = Killed
c = Captured
d = Disabled
t = Temporarily commanding


Note:
On all of the OOB’s which I have seen dealing with the Army of the Tennessee, the total
manpower is listed as 47,721 men. I come up with a total of 46,427 men. As most unit
strengths appear to either be rounded off or guessed at anyway, this is probably close to
the actual number engaged.
