The maximum effective strength of Early's army in the Valley is estimated at about 20,000 of all arms, about August 15th, 1864; but at the battle of Winchester, September 19th, his force had been reduced by the departure of Kershaw, who on August 31st had been 3822 strong, officers and men. [See foot-note, p. 524.] According to Early's official report the losses in killed and wounded from September 1st to October 1st were 291 killed and 2023 wounded= 2314. The loss (including the missing) of the infantry and artillery at the Opequon is stated at 3611.

At Fisher's Hill the infantry and artillery lost 30 killed, 210 wounded, and 995 missing = 1235. At Cedar Creek 700 or 800 were killed and wounded. In his " Memoir " , p. 112, General Early says that his losses at Cedar Creek were " about 1860 in killed and wounded and something over 1000 prisoners." Colonel B. W. Crowninshield, who was provost-marshal of Sheridan's command, says in his "Cedar Creek," that he "had on his books, record of 7000 unwounded prisoners who w ere soldiers," and Colonel E. B. Parsons, who succeeded Crowninshield as provost marshal, reported about 13,000 Confederate prisoners received by him from August 1st, 1864, to March 1st, 1865.

This statement is denied by General Early, who says (" Memoir," p. 118) : " My- loss in killed, wounded, and prisoners, at Winchester and Fisher's Hill, had been less than 4000, and, at Cedar Creek, about 3000, but the enemy has attempt to a much larger figure, claiming as prisoners several thousand more than my entire loss. How he makes out his estimate is not for me to explain. . . I know that a number of prisoners fell into the enemy's hands who did not belong to my command; such as cavalrymen on details to get fresh horses, soldiers on leave of absence, conscripts on special details, citizens not in the service, men employed in getting supplies for the departments, and stragglers and deserters from other commands."
