Our losses, in the slow operations of the trench, on picket, on daily and nightly skirmishes, as well as in battle, although distributed over a great length of time, yet equal in the aggregate the casualties of the greatest battles. The following report exhibits the total of the division in killed and wounded during the campaign from the 7th of May to the 7th of September:

The following table of effective force, made since the close of the campaign, may be profitably compared with that of the 7th of May:
