I think he meant "killed", not "casualties".

 

At the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and North Anna (only three battles) alone he had 56,150 casualties.

Which sources are you using for that? Most modern students would put the figure at under 40,000. 56,000 might be too high for the entire Overland Campaign.
