Waterloo and Gettsbtoo.
The subject of the comparative
losses in the battles of Waterloo and
Gettysburg has been a much-debated
one. Authorities are not of ono
mind. The French army at Water
loo, according to Haydn's dictionary
of dates, numbered 71,947 men and
240 guns, and the allies 133,001 men
of all arms ai.d 20 ) gun? English
07,001 and Prussians 00,000. The
loss of the allies wa-t 22,970, of whom
4,200 were killed, 14,539 wounded
and 4,241 missing; of the French 18,
500 killed and wounded, 7,800 taken
prisoners; total 20,309 though oth
er accounts, including some French
writers, make the loss aboui .10,000,
which aro the figures generally ac
cepted. At any rite, 49,270 on both
sidi s are thus accounted for n l.ors
dc combat. It may be admitted that
the heaviest losi stiff red in any one
b ittle of the war of the rebellion
was at Gettysburg. The numbers
engaged and the loss aro variously
staled. Gen. Meade, the Union com
mander, claimed that his strength
was about 95,000, with about 84,000
of all arms brought into battle,
French's 7,000 having been kept idle
at Fredrick, and about 4,000 more de
tailed for special service These fig
ures correspond nearly with Gen.
Humphrey's statement that tho army
of the Potomac in this action com
prised 70,000 infantry, 10,000 caval
ry and an artillery forco of 300 guns.
Of the Confederate forces, Gen.
Humphrey says that Gen. Leo enter
ed Pennsylvinia with 85,0C0 infan
try, 8,000 cavalry and a proportion
ate force of artillery. Greeley's
"American Conflict" putu down tho
count of Lee's army marching
through Ilagerstown as 91,000 infan
try, 0,000 cavalry and 280 guns, with
no less than 5,000 cavalry under
Stuart advancing without passing
through the town. Tho Union loss
was 23,1902,834 killed, 11,713
wounded, and 0,043 missing. The
Confederate loss is not stated official
ly, and one writer puts the total hors
de combat at 30,000, evidently an
exaggeration. Greeley's work, above
alluded to, estimates the loss at 28,
000, of whom 18,000 were killed, and
lu,000 un wounded prisoners, and
Johnson's cyclopedia 31,00018,000
killed and wounded and 13,000 miss
including the un wounded prisoners.
These figures would show at Water
loo a forco of 205,008, loss' 49,270;
at Gettysburg, 178,000, loss 51,190.
