a The effective strength in the above recapitulation includes the pioneer corps of the division, which was not embraced in the effective strength given at the commencement of this official report of the campaign.

c The main loss of the artillery has been occasioned by transfer of Battery I, First Missouri Light Artillery, and muster out.
