About this Item

viii, [6], 150 pages. Footnotes. Tables. Pencil notations on rear end paper. Preface to Second Edition. Cover is worn and soiled. Boards weak. The present edition is corrected to conform to Colonel Fox's careful list of organizations whose numbers are to be added to, or subtracted from, the number given in the returns of the armies in that battle. Basing his calculation upon the reports of the commanders of a. Large number of regiments, Colonel Fox estimates the number of the Union army actually carried into action at Gettysburg at (852 in 1000 of the present for duty), as compared with effectives computed in this book, and the number of the Confederate army at as compared with which is here adopted. In comparing these numbers it is to be borne in mind that the bases of the computations differ. Colonel Fox includes all the organizations on the field, and deducts all men who did not remain in the ranks. Livermore was raised in Milford, New Hampshire. At the outbreak, he enlisted as Private on 24 June 1861 in Company F, 1st New Hampshire Infantry. He mustered out 9 August back in Concord, then signed up in Company K of the 5th New Hampshire Infantry. He was promoted Sergeant 12 October and 2nd Lieutenant 5 April 1862. He was wounded in action on 30 June on the Peninsula. He was promoted to 1st Lieutenant on 14 December, and Captain on 3 March 1863. He transferred to the 18th New Hampshire and was made Major of that Regiment 28 October 1864. Soon after he served in several staff assignments including chief of the ambulance corps, and acting assistant inspector-general of the Second Army Corps under Major-General Humphries. In April he was appointed Colonel, and mustered out with the Regiment at that rank 23 June 1865. After the War he studied law and entered the New Hampshire Bar. Colonel Livermore is best remembered today as the author of numerous historical works, notably histories of New Hampshire soldiers and units in the War. His most enduring work is Numbers and Losses., the standard reference work for statistics about Civil War unit strengths and casualties. Bookseller Inventory # 74538
