'Lee's Miserables' is a pretty good book covering, mostly, the last 6 months of the ANV.

Reliable estimates give Lee 50,000+ men in the trenches at the time of Fort Stedman.

This understandably diminishes to 28,000 at Appomattox.

The south did pretty well for itself considering they had to garrison every port, harbor major city and their entire border.
