I started experimenting with adding unit and casualty tables to the battle pages. Here is an example from the Battle of Philippi page:
|Virginia (Confederate)||Col. George A. Porterfield||Union||Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Morris|
|9th VA Infantry BN||1st VA Infantry (Union)|
|25th VA Infantry Regt||2nd VA Infantry (Union)|
|31st VA Infantry Regt||6th IN Infantry Regt|
|11th VA Cavalry||7th IN Infantry Regt|
|14th VA Cavalry||9th IN Infantry Regt|
|14th OH Infantry Regt|
It’s obviously incomplete right now. Eventually I’d like to add regiment commanders in the blanks and sources under the tables, and of course be more specific about the numbers when I start delving into primary sources.
Do you think this is an effective way to deliver the information? I also thought about including graphs near the top of the page to compare opposing forces strength and casualties. Your feedback is always appreciated!
