Army Strengths During the Seven Days

23 07 2019

I was asked a few times this weekend for the name of the person who prepared a study of the relative strengths of the opposing armies during the Seven Days in 1862, which contradicts the traditional notion of Lee being outnumbered there. The author is Leon Walter Tenney, his 1992 Master’s Thesis entitled Seven Days in 1862: Numbers in Union and Confederate Armies before Richmond. It can be found at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.
