    I am writing in regards to the April article "The Butcher's Bill" by Edward H. Bonekemper III. I believe that the casulties listed in the article ("Grant, by the numbers, Lee by the numbers") are inaccurate. For example, he has listed down that the total number of casulties during the Battle of Fredericksburg was 4,000+ casulties, and the Confederate casulties were 12,000+. Shouldn't those numbers be reversed? Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville have been considered two of Lee's greatest accomplishments on the battlefield, and there is no way that the Confederates had that many casulties. Did the columns accidently get switched? I hope that it can be fixed; a reputable magazine like this should make sure that the information is accurate so as not to confuse people.

    Thank you.

      It appears that the casualties reflected at Fredericksburg are not the only ones in error. It appears that Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor are also incorrect. There may be others, as the aforementioned battles are the only ones I checked.
