Number of the USCT
Apparently this is not going to go away until I give the numbers.
During the latter part of 1864 and into 1865 the Federal army averaged about 1 million men total.
On specific dates:
Jun 30, 1864- 1,001,782
Dec 31, 1864- 936,996
Apr 30, 1865- 1,052,038
The USCT numbered about 100,000 in October 1864.
The largest number in service at any one time was 123,156.
But that was on July 15, 1865 after the war was over.
At the end of the war the USCT was about 10% of the Federal army.
